im looking at it like the face of minimum wage should be the guy that had a minimum wage job to hold it down while he worked hard to get himself in a better situation and a better job.
i worked minimum wage as a high school student and it gave me all the motivation i needed.
i didn't have a way for paying for college and i didn't want the student debt so i joined the military, served, my 4 years, saved a lot of money, traveled the world, got out, had school payed for and a place to live, finished school, found a career i love and got hired, and now im living great and im only looking up.
why does the face of minimum wage have to be some guy with 3 kids who never strived for something greater?
a lot of my friends are uneducated and all of them are making more than minimum wage. no one should never settle for minimum wage. its called minimum wage for a reason...and this guy isn't starving to death so i think minimum wage is doing its job.
key word MINIMUM
but i dont think minimum wage should be increased...thats the difference we have
