Personally, I think minimum wage should be at least 15$ an hour, and thats being lenient. I mean, how can one live the american dream in a state like California when the median price of a home is 500K? Lets say you make 50K a year with a college degree. you still can't afford a home. How can you raise a family making 10$ hr. with todays price of living. What happened to the days where you could work a blue collar job and raise a big family and send them to school? I have worked lots of jobs where I was getting underpaid by 6 or 7 $. It's really frustrating when your working hard for no pay. Shits only gonna get worse, so hold on to your hats! Don't want to imagine economic conditions in 5 years. I say we do like Dead Prez and bomb rush the white house! You are now witnessing the fall of america.
