In the wake of President Barack Obama's State of the Union address everyone is talking about the minimum wage.

Should it be raised?

I am torn on this one.

I don't know how a family makes ends meet if the breadwinners are earning the current minimum wage. The cost of rent/mortgage, food, and gasoline eats up alot of those paychecks.

On the other side, I wonder what impact raising the minimum wage would have on all the business owners out there.  Would it mean more cuts and squeezing more out of fewer employees?

What do you think?

Minimum wage - to raise or not to raise?
