What if there was two different Minimum wages. One for over 18 and the other for under 18 while keeping ageism laws intact. Minimum wage was never meant to support a family yet many families are left struggling with 2 minimum wage jobs. SO why not make a min wage of 7.50 for under 18 and a slightly higher rate for those over 18?
I understand there would be MANY problems with in this idea and it would never fly but still... it is something I have been pondering.
