got problems with a grammar question
this is the original and uncorrected sentence.
The newspaper *reported* that *having* the increase in the minimum wage, *many people* are still having trouble *making* ends meet. *NO ERROR*
I understand why *having* is grammatically wrong. But I also believe that *reported* is incorrect, too, because it is inconsistant with the "are".
Can someone please explain this to me?
