I am NOT saying it will work for the US, but I'm just saying the idea of a livable minimum wage can work.

Look at the scandinavian countries or australia. People can easily live on minimum wage. The question is whether or not you wanna be a cashier/flipper for the rest of your life.

The best part of being paid a living wage is the additional income might allow one to improve their circumstances through education. Which is what we should all be striving for!

If you want a better wage, then stand up and do something about it, similar to what the food workers are doing.

Here are a few questions I have:

How much should fast food workers be paid in your view?

Is it even feasible for fast food workers to be paid a livable wage?

My quick math, please correct me if I am wrong. Most fast food restaurants pay out about 300k or so a year in labor. If you up that hourly rate to what they want a hour then the fast food restaurants would be paying about 700k a year in labor. Sustainable in America? You tell me.
