Whose fault is this?Someone who is working full time at minimum wage is earning a whopping $14,500 per year. Does anyone think that a person can live on that amount? The increase would bring it up to $18,000 which still seems like it will be poverty wages. When you pay people so little that they have to live in poverty, either they will starve to death or the tax payer will end up picking up the bills. I would much prefer for greedy vultures like WalMart etc, to pay their own way rather than using my tax money to increase their profit margins. So maybe we can also include in the law that if a certain percent of a company's workers are depending on government benefits, that employer can pay higher taxes. I am sick of this nonsense. It is as if every time we help someone in need people think that the world will end.
Every person in America has the same opportunity as anyone else.
People need to stop playing victims and become responsible adults.
If one job doesn't suffice, get a second one...I did.
Please donot bring up race, ethnic beliefs, etc, you do see what is in the White House---a half black/half white muslim dictator.
.....and someone says we don't have the opportunities.
