Somewhere over the r…
Thanks to Covid the ripple effect of a massive increase in prices on pretty much everything will continue on for years.

That combined with the minimum wage increase means the prices on everything are not going to slow down any time soon

Also blaming price increases on minimum wage increasing in the first place...lmao

Lol, I find the people who winge the most about Minimum Wage Increases are folks who probably never made minimum wage … and are well off today

It’s an ARROGANT ARGUMENT

Begrudging the working poor the meagre funds they do get

Truth is one cannot live any decent quality of life on minimum wage …
$ 15 x 40 = $ 600 / wk
x 50 weeks = $ 30,000 / yr … BEFORE TAXES

One truly cannot live with any dignity on that money as a grown adult
Rent, Utilities, Food, Transportation
Prob not enough to do all that
Let alone … Clothes, Dentistry … and other necessities
Certainly no money for emergencies … or for anything nice (like entertainment or vacation )

It’s a disgusting system that needs an overhaul to a more realistic system based on a LIVING WAGE that slides dependent upon WHERE YOU LIVE … and REAL COSTS
