Being recently laid off of a job and struggling to find a new job, I agree with the author of this, and find Obama’s suggestions to be dated and will potentially make matters worse. The State of the Union seemed more like a means of optimism for fans of the president, but leaves very little to be hoped for by people who have seen the lack of success the president has had on changing things in the United States for the better. While it is true that we need a plan of action to change the economy, raising the minimum wage to that point without businesses doing better to some degree will most likely cause more people to lose jobs, causing severe poverty and a lower standard of middle class.
