Any wage raise helps

Anybody who thinks living on the current minimum wage is easy needs to trade paychecks with somebody who does for one month. I currently am single living on $10.50 per hour, but I have had three heart procedures since December and have missed six months.

I rely on nonprofits, food stamps and family to get by. You can’t save any money for these situations or other emergencies that happen in life. Any raise we can get will help.
