Unformatted text preview: The article explains that the last time minimum wage legislation approved an increase 146,000 restaurant worker lost their jobs. This is a scary statistic. With all the talk that I have heard about the economy and unemployment rates being so bad, I think I that even if I were making minimum wage, I would rather keep my job, them have them raise the minimum $1 and then I lose my job. $5.15 or $6.55 is better than $0 in my opinion.
