With the cost of living, I think it should be between $11 and $13 an hour. I can’t afford to live in the city of Boston. — Brenda Ramsay, Preschool Teacher, Randolph
I think $11. The lower paid population spends more of their income than the wealthy. Higher wages create a healthier economy. — Brian Sheffey, Geneologist, Roxbury
At least $15 an hour. People work hard and don’t get paid well. The cost of living is high. — Herbie Gilpin, Stocking Clerk, Dorchester
At least $10. Nobody wants to work for $8. — Kim Greene, RMV Supervisor, Dorchester
Ten dollars an hour. You can’t survive off of $8. It would cut down on crime if you raised it. People won’t feel pressured so much. — Monique Goodman, Payroll Keeper, Mattapan
