So I got caught up reading what the minimum wage is in some states, most states appear to be higher than mine. Im guessing thats because of the cost of living. But seriously...Even if you worked FULL time at minimum wage, you couldnt afford to survive. It is really ridiculous, how can it be possible to pay people this little amount and expect them to live without help. Either way your going to fail, you either cant afford child care, or you cant afford to work! ...youd have to have multiple roomates and live like a college student to thrive off of min. wage. Lord this economy SUCKS!

I know what you mean! I make minimum wage right now as a daycare worker. I have been told that I need to go to college if I wanted to better myself. HaHaHa, I have a Bachelor's degree in education and I am working on my Master's degree. I can't find any work other than a daycare worker or a cashier. Yes, this economy really sucks.
