Of course it would be great to get paid almost $10 an hour, but I honestly feel that Illinois’ minimum wage is not bad at all, not saying it is great and should never consider changing. But after looking at Wyoming’s minimum wage, $5.15 an hour, Illinois does not seem so bad! And most of the states have similar minimum wages.

I believe that these programs should not be removed completely, but that perhaps there should be more regulations for those who enroll in them.
