‘Everyone deserves a livable wage’

To the Editor,Raising the minimum wage has been a topic of discussion for a number of years. But I believe that American society has evolved and is ready to take on the issue, as 76 percent of Americans are in support of an increase.Everyone deserves a livable wage and should be able to afford the basics. Raising the minimum wage to $10.10 is a step toward that goal.Many arguments have been made to not raise the wage. However, big businesses that have been making record profits, conservative politicians and people that make a good livable wage have primarily made those arguments.This initiative is about community building. And we as a society at-large need to come together and begin to advocate for making this life-enhancing change that we all will benefit from.Khristian Smith SpeelmanClinton
