It gives people a goal to make more money so they can provide for their families in the future. The downsides to a minimum wage, does push some companies to move their manufacturing outside the U.S. so they don’t have to pay a minimum to its employees. This is bad for an economy and it also pushes for more of a class specific separation instead of a less specific class separation. Minimum wage has many good points and bad that results in much controversy as the minimum is always rising as costs go up, but it still continues to be more valuable to our country than bad.
