21. Don't believe the media
Or small business owners, either. The last time the minimum wage was increased, the economy grew and business's gained many a paying customer because more people had more money to spend. What you have been hearing about are the greediest of the greedy bitching and moaning. Ignore their whines. We need a minimum wage increase to at least $10.
