Fifteen dollars an hour for flipping a burger? Minimum wage was never meant to be a family-sustaining wage, it was meant to get someone started working, entry level, so they could work their way up, go to school, improve their selves. A $15 minimum wage is essentially a bailout for people unwilling or too lazy to actually learn a skill. Am I going to get a bump in my wages for going to college at night, staying up late doing homework, getting up early for work, etc.? Crazy times we live in. Editor: Just don’t forget to remember who is subsidizing those living on $8 an hour. It’s you, the taxpayer — through welfare programs.
