I hate to say it but this is a bad idea. While I agree there are people who are trying to live off of $7.25 and provide for their children on that salary, that’s not most people. I got my first job at 14 and would not have been able to if the mom and pop shop I worked for had to pay me $15 an hour. You’ll be taking away valuable working experience from young, hard working teenagers. If you are a grown, fully able adult providing for a family, may I recommend trade school as a wonderful opportunity. Over $60,000 a year. If you’re not fully able, may I recommend government disability alongside a a minimum wage job.
