Today something interesting happened in the great state of California as the large metropolis of Los Angeles is now just one step closer to getting that minimum wage rate raised to $15 per hour. There has been a great debate about this topic lately because people feel that the minimum wage is just not enough to live on, and that people who make less than that are in a state of poverty. It is true that the cost of living seems to get higher each year, but what people don’t realize is that when the wages go up so does the cost of living even more so.
According to an article found on reddit and written by Eater.com, not everyone is in favor of the increase because some feel that it would put them at risk of having problems in the industry. As much as I would like to have at least $15 myself at work, I know that if this were to actually happen it could also cause a massive layoff in many companies. By having it lower, it is also allowed more people to have jobs that they might not have otherwise as any FreedomPop review points out.
