Tuesday, President Barack Obama laid out his economic plans to help out the millions of jobless Americans. A big part of that plan was increasing the Federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $9 an hour.

This could help out working class families, but might leave businesses in a lurch.

It is crazy that in 2013 some still think that a person can survive by working a job that pays minimum wage, let alone a couple or family with children. To me it is a national disaster that in the GREAT USA we still want pay $7.25 an hour. In my opinion it should at least be $9 an hour. More if you live in California, Florida or New York, and a few other high cost cities. The problem in El Paso is that we still want to think likle a cheap poor city. Just ask the people against AAA Ball.

I hear Chico's Taco pays more than that to start.
