@Jimk. Your opinion on this subject I agree with; but this discussion on the minimum wage is not about wealth. It is about survival. When your just a working stiff, you want to be able to pay some bills and eat descent meals daily. To do that now, especially a typical family, you can’t do on one salary. This scenario makes parents, children, and spouses like ships passing through the night.
When I was in Europe the minimum wage was a working wage. Even unemployment was decent and longer.
Our minimum wage issue is not about wealth. It’s about living.
