Jane likes hobos.<quoted text>I take it you're opposed to minimum-wage earners raising children, since you acknowledge the impossibility of minimum wage to support a family?
What do you suggest?
How about castration of all newborn males whose parents make less than 50K per year? Would that do it for you?
Minimum wage part-time jobs were intended for students, and elderly folks supplementing their savings post-retirement. It was never intended to use part-time employment as the means to an employer's business model, but that is the format in which jobs are increasingly available. When you're a grown person with children, experiencing a lay-off, downsizing, outsourcing, or the entire elimination of one's former position throughout the workforce, whose job opportunities are summarily reduced to minimum-wage part-time jobs, or panhandling, which would you prefer we choose?
I mean really likes them.
