Once again, the call to raise the minimum wage rears its ugly head (“Living off minimum wage is barely living,” by Frank Cerabino).
There’s no argument that a person should not be trying to support a family on that kind of wage.
Why does anyone need to work for minimum wage? Are their job skills not sufficient for an employer to pay them more?
If not, then that’s what they need to do: Increase their skills so they can demand a better wage rather than forcing the rest of us to help support them through higher prices for goods, something necessary to pay higher wages.
Perhaps the wise thing for people to do is wait until you can support a family before marrying. It worked in the old days.
