In an economy where some people are living paycheck to paycheck, people don't spend very much because they're make minimum wage. There’s a demand for more jobs, but there’s also a demand to better the economy. The Government wants people to spend more money so that it’ll boost the economy, but for those with families and living on a low income, spending money is just out of the question. The only way for the economy to get the boost it needs is to raise minimum wage so that the lower class economy will spend more. Also raising minimum wage will help the poverty rate decrease. Raising minimum wage might cause a disturbance with some owners but there's no need to worry. Some owners might not hire more people to make up for the raised paychecks but a study done by Alan Krueger proves that raising minimum wage had no effect on the business itself.
So this means that the Government might make businesses' raise minimum to help fix the economy.
(If they do decide to raise worker's paycheck, they should start with raising teacher's salaries!)
