Minimum wage is not a free market concept. It has a negative affect on the overall economy and actually causes some wages to be lower. We have millions unemployed, raising the minimum wage is not necessary. The current government's anti-free market policies is destroying our country. Leave the minimum wage where it is and free up this country to make more real jobs available. The more the government messes with the economy the worse things will be.

@Wayne Rout, bad idea. Take government out of the equation and capitalists will have all of us in leg irons performing slave labor worse than in the days of the Robber Barons.
