 Do you believe, as city of Seattle does, or as Mayor de Blasio does, that corporations are ethically charged with paying employees a "living" wage? Please support your answer.

 In the wake of a Great Recession that hit low-income workers hardest, America is coming around to a simple fact: Raising the minimum wage is not only good ethics but also good economics. It is ethical responsibility of Corporations to pay a reasonable living pay to workers. When corporations fail to pay, the economy fails to grow.

Today, a parent working full-time at minimum wage will simply not earn enough income to cover basic needs like food, clothing, and shelter. Even working a second job and well over 40-hours a week, it's mathematically impossible for many minimum wage workers to pay for childcare, clothing, and gas. If you doubt these claims, take a look at the"draft budget"that a major employer recently distributed to its employees. The best way to turn our economy around is to invest in the people who keep it running: Low-income workers. By getting more income into the hands of hard-working people who will spend it, we will create more business for American companies and eliminate much of the need for government assistance.
