BREAKING: Seattle becomes the first city to raise its minimum wage to $15/hour. SHARE if Congress should take Seattle’s lead!
the current minimum wage (at least in NY) is $8.00 and less than a year ago it was $7.25, so yes.
Nope nope and nope. Make better decisions and life and you won’t be working a minimum wage job.
Wow. No, I don’t think you understand economics, so let me explain you a thing. Thanks to inflation and government greediness, cost of living is at an all time high. For my area(Philadelphia), a single person needs to make a
minimum of $10 an hour to live just above poverty level. The average minimum wage is $7.25. That’s a full $2.75 less an hour which is a big deal when gas is $3.54, and average rent is $800 - for the shitty, crime ridden areas. Please find the nearest exit and go fuck yourself.
