Increasing or decreasing the wage? Which one of these two options is less damaging to the economy?

I chose my topic for the research paper to be about “Increase in wage“. I read an article recently about the pros and cons of our minimum wage increase. It seemed very interesting to me so I decided to use this as my research paper topic if it gets approved. From my point of view, this is something everyone should know about. I know that increasing it sounds like a good idea because we think it’s more money, however, an increase in wage has many negative effects on our lives. A lot of things are based on our wages such as house prices, product prices, and other bills. Increasing or decreasing the wage? Which one of these two options is less damaging to the economy? Why do people work? What is the minimum wage? Is it the same for every state? Who decides how much it is?
