minimum wage increase

Dear Mr. Obama,
I am a single parent of a 17 and 22 year old that still live with me. I lost my job in April due to age discrimination and now I can not find a job that pays more than minimum . I was making over 16.75 an hr plus commission.

Please increase this wage for the people that worked so many years to get an increase and now we are left at 53 with something they earned 10 years ago. I already had to cash in my 401k and live on it next I will be fighting to pay for my house. Help us quick.
