Minimum wage hasn't kept up with cost of living

Posted: February 14, 2014 - 8:42am

Minimum wage should be raised because as we go into a grocery store and from week to week find that a $10-12 item suddenly becomes a $13-14 item and a $12.50 item has suddenly became a $15-plus item.

I believe that since minimum wage was last increased, there has been roughly a 50 to 75 percent in the cost of merchandise. My measly 1.3 per cent raise in Social Security is eaten up every week when we go into stores because of their raising the prices daily.
