Topic: The Minimum Wage: Why Should we increase the minimum wage? Personal connection to the topic : Raising the minimum wage is a way of motivating employees as it helps to raise them above the poverty lines, thus improving their standard of living. With the fact that California has already passed a law to increase the minimum wage from $7 to $15 by the year 2022, I believe that raising the minimum wage will increase the morale of workers as well as increasing consumer spending. Currently, I take care of my grandma and get paid by the County of San Diego. In each work I do for her, I get paid $11.50. It means that I will have to carry out various chores and work for several hours to get good pay. It is almost impossible to live with such a small income because I am a student at the college and need some expenses. Therefore, I believe that increasing the minimum wage will increase my standard of living. Significant sources Jennifer L. Romich, Is Raising the Minimum Wage a Good Idea? Evidence and Implications

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
