Musuko42-" you'll have large areas where adults supporting families are stuck taking these "kids" jobs"

So you`re saying that `adults supporting families` should be paid MORE for performing the same exact job a 16-year-old earning pocket money is?

The work performed determines the pay. A job that entails lining up Fruit-Loops boxes and cleaning up a spill on Aisle 5 is worth minumum wage (IF you perform enough work). It doesn`t matter if you`re a 16-year-old geek or a 45-year-old father of three. Of course, if you`re a 45-year-old who`s only job skill is stocking, that says much more about you as an individual than Walmart.

"Why? Some jobs are designed for kids, living at home, to give them experience and some pocket cash."

There's your answer: allow companies to undercut minimum wage simply by claiming "these jobs are meant for kids". If enough employers, or large-enough employers (read: Walmart, etc) do this, then you`ll have large areas where adults supporting families are stuck taking these "kids" jobs.

Musuko42-"Every job should pay a living wage."

Why? Some jobs are designed for kids, living at home, to give them experience and some pocket cash. Some are entry level.

In order to EARN a living wage, your contribution to the business must worth MORE than your wage. Lining up Cheerios on a shelf does not contribute enough to warrent a living wage. (MAYBE if each Walmart store only had ONE stock boy, he'd be earning the company enough to receive a living wage.)

Musuko42-"That`s the point of minimum wage."

That is incorrect. Try studying history. The Minimum Wage was never designed as a living wage. It was about income equity for those with little or no job skills and to help eliminate sweat shops.
