Minimum wage was never meant to be a standard to “raise a family” with.  Every time the minimum wage increases, those making a few dollars above don’t get an increase. Why does a burger flipper believe they should get $15 an hour when I never earned that much an hour working in professional settings my entire career in Tucson. (and I have a college degree)  Every time the minimum wage goes up, so does the price of all restaurant food.

If you want to earn a larger wage than $7+ an hour, get the proper education and skills that command a better wage.
