Lower the minimum wage

Does anyone else think the minimum wage should be lowered rather than raised?

Remember when everyone in high school had a job and that job taught you about the value of money as well as what you might not want to do when you graduated?

Kids filled the fast food and retail jobs and there was usually one adult present, the manager. Let’s lower the wage to $5 an hour and watch the hiring frenzy take place. Besides, holding a minimum wage job was never intended to be a career but a stepping stone to the next job.
