I'm curious, I'm a financial analyst on close to $100,000 per annum. Should my salary increase too should that just happen to the people who didn't work to move ahead and are stuck flipping burgers? I'd love to be paid more for my 80 hour week.

Quoting AVSpecWife4: Smh.



I can see you're beyond logic or reason. So, I'll simply say, you are obviously very ignorant on this subject.




Quoting Anonymous: If they don't like those jobs plenty of opportunity is provided for those who want it. People are paying for bad life choices, that's not the governments fault.





Quoting AVSpecWife4: Bullshit. Not everyone can be at the top jobs. There will always be a need for those to work the crap jobs. Scrubbing toilets, serving food, fixing cars, etc. they are worth more than the crap they're paid. People not working hard enough isn't the issue. Do you know people would worker harder if they're paid more?







Quoting Anonymous: If people want to earn more they can better themselves and work harder to achieve it. I don't think minimum wage should go up, people need to work harder.

I agree. Wages need to rise across the board.

Quoting Anonymous: Only if other wages increase accordingly. A burger flipper or shelf stocker shouldn't make what a CNA makes, or almost half of what an RN makes.
Quoting AVSpecWife4: Thank you

I'm sick of people saying it'll be doom and gloom to raise min wage. Prices may go up to balance it out, but for the most part, we won't see $15 cheeseburgers, $12 for a gallon of milk.



We need a min wage increase. 7.25 is ridiculously too low.



To add, $15 as a min wage is too high, but $10 an hour would be perfect.

Mechanics make more than minimum wage.

It's easy why wages have remained the same. Ignorant individuals like anon continue putting assholes into office that fight against raising min wage. It's always the fault of those working the menial jobs. Never realizing fuckwits like her depend on people to work those menial jobs. The cashiers at the grocery stores who take her money , the stockers that stock the warehouses and stores that she shops at, the barista that makes her latte, the car she drives is serviced by those working the menial jobs. They are worth more than the shit wages they get.

Doesn't matter if they like their jobs or not. They are entitled to getting paid what they're worth


Quoting Kazoo22:

So the recession and people with education being forced into menial jobs is their fault? Yes many people do make bad life choices, but why try to punish people as a whole for a few who do? Shouldn't we be looking more at why inflation has increased but pay has remained stagnant? 

Are you aware that increasing minimum wage would also unburden the taxpayers a bit?

So? Min wage goes up, those who work service jobs, their wages will go up as well. Is it fun to nit pick? Or are you just board?

Well, of course all wages would go up. That's usually how it works.

The majority of them aren't even worth the $7 per hour they receive. Entitlement in its finest.

Just pointing out that Mechanics make more than minimum wage.  No I am not bored, and I don't play board games.

So you're a financial analyst and you have to ask this question? 

Quoting Anonymous: I'm curious, I'm a financial analyst on close to $100,000 per annum. Should my salary increase too should that just happen to the people who didn't work to move ahead and are stuck flipping burgers? I'd love to be paid more for my 80 hour week.

Quoting AVSpecWife4: Smh.
