http://www.theatlantic.com/business...ers-would-survive-on-the-minimum-wage/277845/ I thought this was a pretty interesting read. I am all for the market setting the price for workers but IMO right now that isn't working. When current minimum wage workers all qualify for freebies form the government there is a problem. I'd rather have a minimum wage that is livable then have my tax dollars going to keeping this country welfare dependent. McDonald's put together that budget with Visa in good faith but to actually look at it is ridiculous. Their job doesn't even cover the minimum monthly budget and it is a paltry one. I am all for people working hard and if having two jobs is what it takes then go for it! That being said working nearly two full time jobs is a little silly. Every minimum wage employee shouldn't be expected to work two full time jobs to make ends meet.
