This is why we're paying for the red states, because workers work for nothing and the government ends up feeding them and take care of their healthcare.
Imaging that, paying people what their labor is worth..
$58 for an 8 hour shift....and $29 for a half days work at McDonalds just does not pay any one's bills, nor does it even scratch the surface for someone getting ready for college.
Until college tuition is back down to $3,000, and a car under $8,000 - $7.25 is not enough for any sector of the population.
Human labor is valuable -- so if companies want to take advantage of it, it's time to pay for it.
