OK we get it - on the other side of the coin is that these types of jobs are entry level or supplemental income jobs.

In my younger years when I was taking care of a family of 4 I supplemented my employment with a
part time job and my wife worked and I was far from a minimum wage job.

Time to get off your can Michael, get a vocational skill or education in a field where you can take care of your family and use your work experience at McDonald's to shore up your resume.

Been done for several hundred years here in the USA - sure you can find your way to work at McDonalds, find another job and sacrifice some of
your free time playing PS or XBOX.

For the pastors rambling along about it is immoral to pay those wages - wake up they are entry level jobs.
