Oh and it's not really a "starting job" for most anyway. Look how many grown ass people you see WORKING(YEAH WORKING, NOT SITTING ON THEIR ASS) at these places. Salaries that don't pay a living wage make up a tremendous percentage of jobs in this country. This is not fair and needs to be addressed before we come like a south american country. Of course, maybe you like it like that?

"Exactly meant for" again, according to who? The know it all liberals?

Your liberal views are so weak, that you have to try to compare it to slavery. biggest joke ever.

Are people working minimum wage jobs because they are force to like slavery hundred of years ago?
Are people working minimum wage jobs not allowed to learn something and move up unlike the slaves hundred of years ago?


Salaries that don't pay a living wage because these people choose to stay at these jobs paying minimum wage, there's nothing to address if they don't want to learn something and move up. Many people have done it, the ones that don't want to, there's nothing that can be done for them except giving them a free handout that makes little economic sense.

The liberals generally don't have an explanation for reality, most of their views and agenda are bleeding heart mentality.

Again, minimum wage is set based on job skill, it's set based on other job skill and pay.

Your liberal agenda is trying to make people think, we are trying to screw people, we are not, we just want what make sense and correct, most importantly something that will not have a negatively impact.

Still using slavery to support your cause, then again, I already said, liberal views don't make any sense.

Well after you have been exposed with your slavery ideas and just same old bleeding heart concepts, I don't think too many people would want to continue.

Yeah, nice worthless reply to something as worthless. LOL.

Well you can think what you want. I'm just happy that Obama got elected twice and CT is a liberal state and it's fantastic that Malloy passed a minimum wage hike for the working poor
