    If it takes 15.00 an hour to have a "living" wage, well I really dont have an issue with that except that really all your doing is raising the cost to build a widget, or grow a widget to a point in which the 8.00 an hour becomes 15.00 an hour it seems to me

    A living wage is one that you need to cover your expenses in life and it is often earned by educating ones-self, so one might find or create a job that compensates them according to their level of skill. The unemployment rate for the college educated is 4.5%.

    Enough to support a life in todays society with one full time job.


    I know the right doesnt understand what it is.

    That is one of your partys major problems which is why they have to cheat in elections to win.
