Who made your career decisions for you? Plenty of people live on the wage they earn. Difference is they do what they can with what they make. See the way its works is you get paid in accordance to what your job is worth to a company. You move up and get raises according to what you are worth to a company. Now since this is a free country you have the right to quit a job that in your opinion doesn't pay enough and put in an application with any employer you choose. If they choose to hire because the think you would be asset to their company then they will pay you at the rate they determine.<quoted text>i work two jobs and substitute teach. That's three jobs and my spouse has a job. Too bad Republicans are against a living wage. That would be good for us. We are part of the working poor in America, but I suppose some cant relate. Are poor people supposed to work every waking minute? I guess quality of life is for some not all, like insurance.
In this case it takes you 2 1/2 jobs to meet the life style you choose to pay for. However 3 employer do not see that you are worth a higher wage. That being said given your post and lack of intelligence I would have to agree with the 3 and agree you are and will be a minimum wage employee.
