I think minimum wage should be just enough so that an adult working full time earns enough to NOT qualify for food stamps, rent assistance, or anything else.

And most importantly - you CANNOT force them to pay for the minimum wage out of their "greedy rich man" money bags. For some reason, you guys think the extra wages will come directly from the fat cats' money stashes, the mountains of money. No. Stop it.

If we assume they are greedy, they will not lower their, say, 5% profit margin to anything below 5%. So that's all there is to it.

"how dare you have so many children when your in a well paid job and not know your company will go bankrupt and lay you off etc..."

I don't think you have accurately portrayed the average McDonalds worker.

McDuff, that's called a strawman. You create a hypothetical person in a well-paid position. However, my hypothetical person is only capable of minimum wage labor. If you can only produce that, you shouldn't be surprised when it's difficult to take care of multiple children.

Besides, you're not going to be able to legislate anyone into prosperity with labor price controls. Labor price controls will not suddenly make this lady with 3 kids have enough money to take care of her children. The major labor price controls you guys are calling for (you guys want $15) will destroy people who can only make minimum wage currently. The arguments have already been put forward 1000 times:

1. Machines. You order on a computer. Machine builds burger.
2. Remaining employees will be made to work harder to justify doubling of wage.
3. Increased prices everywhere, nixing much of the wage gain anyways.
4. Nobody will pay teen down the street $15, ever.

I agree with you that wage isnt all about skill, but the working conditions at McDonalds are no worse than in any of the service industries.Its not a sweat shop,and no ones putting themselves in danger working there. Yeah, when working in any high volume sales situation you deal with non-nice individual customers and long hours, but that doesnt warrant the $15/hr that theyre asking. I grew up in a broke household,bills going to collection, eviction, the whole nine, so I understand the idea of not making enough money to survive. However, I've also accepted that in life nothing is free, and you make what you EARN. I agree that they arent making enough even working full time to survive, but if you have zero working experience, and you're getting payed $15/hr while I'm making that much after busting my ass for years to better my life, you bet your ass I think thats unfair.Either raise it for everyone, or lower the cost of living.You make what you deserve,not what you want.

'Unless we raise minimum wage across the board as well as give an equal increase to EVERYONE who is receiving more than minimum wage, the only solution is to find a better job than McDonalds.'

thats the problem, people are scared that people working at mcdonalds are making more than them. wage isnt always just about skill, sometimes it has to do with working conditions..besides mcdonalds is a fortune 500 company, it should be expected that thier employees make good money

Minimum wage isnt enough to live on, fact.
The people complaining about this are asking for too big of a raise.
Unless we raise minimum wage across the board as well as give an equal increase to EVERYONE who is receiving more than minimum wage, the only solution is to find a better job than McDonalds.
Easier said than done, but quite frankly it would be pretty sad if someone flipping burgers god paid the same amount as a college graduate.
Raise for everyone, or raise for noone.

Whoa, careful with that thinking there, @Andrew155; you're entering a dangerous zone called The Common Sense Zone!

Let's pay them all $15/hr. Nothing would go wrong. That's just ridiculous to suggest.

Anyways, you're abusing your child if you bring in 2, 3 or 4 children into the world if you can only produce minimum wage labor. Let's be honest. Don't bring children into the world you can't provide for.
