Fair pont, the question is would it be good for the economy?

Most economists agree that raising minimum wages isn't good for the economy but that certainly doesn't mean we shouldn't do it. The point of a minimum wage isn't economic it's humanitarian and political.

I have to say @caldoofkinjr this may be the first time in the history of the internet that someone has provided a source to back up their opinion. Sweet thanks
