The minimum wage hike has always been an issue in the US for the past decades. With only a few hours before Biden gets inaugurated as the President of the United States, people are excited for all his promises to take place. One of these is his plans to raise the minimum wage of workers all over the US. From $7.25, Biden plans to raise it to $15. This is a 100% increase and, so far, the largest minimum wage hike ever in US history.

Reactions all over the internet are mixed. Everyone working minimum wage is happy that finally, they may have the means to be financially stable. With the costs of living increasing regularly over the decades, the wage hike is good news for many. However, many people are afraid that doubling the minimum wage would lead to significant inflation in the coming years. There are also fears that unemployment will rise as companies will opt to reduce their workforce to be able to pay minimum wage to some of their workers. If anything, there might be a few small businesses that will close down.

Just like in every situation, the internet has found humor in these things. Memes are always all over and here are some of the best and funniest:

Get ready for inflation, $100 burgers? POSSIBLE.
