    The bottom rung of the trickle down theory. By the time its done trickling, there aint enough left to live on. $10 an hour, full time, doesnt equal a livable wage.

    Does that include Military Pensions, VA Disability and Tri-Care?

    And before you go there, Medicare and Social Security are just as 'earned' and just as paid for by the beneficiaries.
