Any reasonable person would agree with you. In addition to the reduction of wage range, it also makes it harder for young people to get into the workforce to gain skills. Generally it only improves the situation for minimum workers for a short period until the inflation, imparted by the raise in minimum, raises the prices of goods and pay for other workers.

Most people only work at minimum a short time and the workers who are consistently working at minimum are still there because they either suck or refuse to accept responsibility, so they deserve to stay there. Raising the minimum only rewards the dregs.
