  • 1. The U.S. minimum wage policy is very different from other countries the U.S. stays the same while the other countries goes up. This makes the other countries minimum wage to be higher than the U.S.
    2. I think it should but shouldn’t because if the U.S. made the minimum wage higher there would be more people that want more jobs but there also wont be enough jobs for everyone. This may cause more people not want to work if there jobs are filled.
