Don’t increase minimum wage to $15

I don't believe the minimum wage should be increased statewide to $15 per hour. If this happens, the products that are sold will increase by at least $6 and people will stop purchasing these items because of the sudden increase in cost.

With the amount of business that is reduced because of the increase in price occurs, these small businesses will eventually go out of business. These entry level jobs are not supposed to be able to raise a family on, they are only 1st time jobs.
