No lower it, students will lose less money but it will help in the future for us with taxes and prices

Yes and no, there should be adjustments according to inflation, but prices have already increased in a never ending cycle for so long... and we should bare in mind that lower-wage jobs are mostly for experience. There has been inconsistencies with payments from companies and level of experience...so there needs to be wage regulations instead of an exact minimum wage on all factors.

Yes, and directly tie it to inflation to prevent employers from raising the cost of their goods to compensate

 @9L5R7PFfrom Alberta answered…2mos2MO

Minimum wage should be set at local or regional levels since the cost of living can vary greatly. The federal government should mandate a minimum wage calculation that incorporates inflation and pass laws that force all employers to increase wages annual by a minimum of inflation. Corporate pay scales should be required to be public.

No because increasing the minimum wage cause business owners to pay for their labor costs with low employment
