What bothers me is any attempt to raise the min. wage too far too fast, to catch up for failing to raise it for long periods of time in the recent past. Going from 7.25 to 10.10 in a year is unreasonable, because it is so far outside the standard rate of inflation that it would disrupt the system. That type of increase should probably be spaced in annually over 5 years. As far as going to $15 per hour, I don't see that as reasonable at all in the foreseeable future. That would be too big a shock to the system IMO.
