    I'm in favor of boosting the minimum wage...and all working folks' wages.  But...but it has to be done in a comprehensive fashion considering all aspects.

    Many non-profits that provide services to the less fortunate, and for-profits that contract with government agencies, hire many workers at minimum wage or slightly above.  They must have more revenue in order to pay higher salaries.  If they don't get more, the people who depend on these workers will suffer.

    Yes, raise the wage, but consider all aspects and take care of those who can't work.
