Fine, pass it up the line. The problem stays the same. The businesses will pass the increased labor costs on to consumers thus negating any benefit. Barring a big "reset", we can't win under this type of proposal. The game is rigged, we need to reset and change the rules so that they no longer favor corporations so strongly.

NO, I'm implying that people whom are getting paid, for example, $15 per hour also get the wage % increase. Their wages are based off the notion that minimum wage is $7.25.
My point is that 7.25 isn't "MINIMUM" wage. Hell, some people getting paid 15 bucks an hour still have trouble with living expenses.
