The REAL reason Obama wants to raise the minimum wage is as an underhanded method of increasing wages for his union supporters! Union jobs are pegged to the minimum wage... For example 6 times the minimum wage or if the minimum wage increases then union wages increase. Remember the unions are upset about the increased cost of health care (due to Obama-care) and this is a way to force companies to pay his union supporters more. It is really that simple...

Which is why so many of us simply bow to social pressure, thinking that opposition to raising the minimum wage is “uncaring.”...
