People who blame -insert name- while trying not to fix the problem, greed, the lack of actually increasing minimum wage to match today's cost of living, crappy education system, I can go on and on but I need my coffee.
Minimum wage is not meant to be a liveable wage. One needs training, experience and certification to make a liveable wage.
You're part of the problem in America.
We're at a point when we need people to work those "minimal" wage jobs cause those college jobs hire few people at a time (not only do majority of college grads get into debt, they aren't even guaranteed a job) and with our spurt in population growth we're at a point we can't divide pay wages by such a wide margin anymore when the cost of living has been on a rise. In fact people in the 1950s were making more money than the avg person makes now.
We have been at a all time high in jobless people and homeless, we're literally turning into a 3rd world country at a slow pace cause people like you are like "I work hard so I should get paid more" chances are the majority of people who say that didn't bust there ass to get where they are. I've worked 80 hour weeks on a $16 an hour job, I know what it's like to bust my ass at a job.
