If the job you has does not pay your bills, it's time to get a better job or another job. It is not up to your employer to pay you enough to support your lifestyle, it is up to you to live within your means, or to make the personal changes necessary to increase your income.
Fast food jobs and other "low skill labor" are traditionally employment for high school kids and young adults to make a few bucks while they get educated and gain work skills to get better jobs before they become parents. That type of employment was never meant to support a family.
If wages for these jobs are raised to $15/hour then the cost of a burger and fries will need to be raised to $20. How many people will pay that for a burger?
This is America, if the job you have does not support your lifestyle (or the family you created while you couldn't afford to support the babies you were making) then go find another job. Don't expect everyone else to pay more because you can't live within your means.
