  • What is a living wage?

    So all I hear these days from the left is living wage this and living wage that. I know what they think a living wage should be but, what to the people here think it should be. Should I be able to work at Micky D's and support a wife and 2.3 children and a dog and a cat and a goldfish. Is there a job out there that shouldn't be considered a job that supports a family or should all jobs no matter what be able to support a family? Should the person delivering a newspaper be able to support a family of just several routes? Should a person working in fast food be able to support a family?

    Typically some of those jobs have been held by teenagers that are just breaking into the workforce and were never meant to support them or anyone else. It was money to do stuff during the summer and maybe during the school year. It was for gas in the car and taking that special someone to a movie not supporting a family.

    What am I missing. Gotta be at least one liberal here that can make a case for a living wage.

    A living wage is different in California than it is in Iowa
    Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

    My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

      I agree with Rand on the principle that these jobs are entry level and/or for high school and college kids. The people who want to make a living and raise a family off of minimum wage are the people who don't try very hard in life.

      They can't for the life of them grasp that the Earth and Sun don't revolve around them. They don't understand that showing up on time and better yet, coming to work and being dependable are important, and they will have to miss some parties with their boys if they want a good-paying job.

      All this accelerated raising of the minimum wage does is lower the rest of our incomes as we foot the bill. The minimum wagers will still find themselves in the same boat. They would understand this if they didn't want handouts and had a little uncommon (used to be known as common) sense.
