In conclusion, raising minimum wage to $15 is a horrible idea because economically, we can’t afford it. If we raise minimum wage taxes will increase, and in thefuture we’ll look back and see what a horrible mistake we made. To ensure a great future we have to lower it or use alternatives to it. If we raise it now, our grandchildren will have to pay for it later. In order to solve the problems of raising minimum wage, we must use a basic income policy, utilize the Earned Income Tax Credit of $6,000 per yearfor low income families, and increase the Child Tax Credit to $1,000 for each qualified child. The fight for $15 is not worth it.Works CitedLast Name, First. “Name of Cited Article”. Name of Article’s Source.City of publication: Name of publisher, date of publication. Web/Print.
