A teenage burger flipper does not need that much an hour. Perhaps there should be an age limit to receive that amount!
Yeah but kind of tough to say if you are a 18 years old you get less than the
40 year old beside you, when you are both doing the same work. I understand
what you mean, tho.
It's kind of funny because I recall many years ago when they started this minimum
wage thing and laughing when it increased back then....every time it would increase,
we'd always say the same thing.....'there goes the pricing on everything going up AGAIN'.
The REAL PROBLEM is our jobs are GONE! I can remember very very well because I grew
up South side of Chicago, 30 minutes from Gary, Indiana. Trains trains trains steel steel
steel and huge factories every where...and all my friends families worked for big big big
manufacturing companies. All my uncles worked in the steel mills... 'Inland Steel'.
So in that day, there wasn't a minimum wage, there was employee raises based on
hard work and talent. There were huge bonuses and huge parties especially the HUGE
Christmas parties those factories would hold for their employees and employees families.
Gone gone gone!
