Forum writer Norman Lupescu writes that we should make the minumum wage $12 an hour. OK, what happens to people now getting $12 per hour?
I feel the government should not determine the minimum-wage level. Rather, it should be set by the private sector. If Norman had his own business and had to write payroll checks, he might understand.
Raising the minimum wage will not create jobs but may very well decrease them. Workers are paid according to their worth, not by their needs.
