No it is not because a person can’t live off of minimum wage; you only make $15,080 a year
It can be changed. It was most recently changed in 2009. When minimum wage was first made it was set at 25 cents per hour
Minimum wage right now is $7.25
Upsize, is what some people want. Upsize means to increase, so people want the minimum wage to be increased to a higher amount

Another thing is that you only make $15,080 a year. “By the time you paid your bills (heat, electricity, car home and health insurance, rent or mortgage, gas money, groceries) I do not think you would have much money, if any, to buy the things you wanted.” - Irv Laube
Gaining enough money on minimum wage to by anything is hard to do. It would take you around 4 years to buy a car, and that is without including food, bills, and any other needs
