    If you are wanting specifics on say a specific item on my list such as "food", that is a more complex subject. Cheap food is not healthy food, so you could say that contributes to the obescity problem which is yet another more complex subject because it contributes to the other subject item as avoid being sick.

    Either way, BOTH major items of a definition and specific wage of a living wage are very complex items.
    Totally agree, it is not a specific number and depends on a lot of factors. Winston seems to believe that a young person between the ages of 16-19 living at home with their parents making minimum wage isn't making a liveable wage. Just goes to show how poorly informed some people are.

    Their cost of living exceeds their income hence some one else pays for their shelter and probably other things. IOW it is not a living wage, sheeesh.

    So you know their cost of living? Where did you get this gift?

    The retired store manager said that 70 percent of the workers at his outlet were part-time, meaning they worked no more than 32 hours a week. That ratio was imposed by his bosses at Walmart’s Bentonville, Ark., headquarters, he said, as a means of saving costs on benefits such as medical insurance, which are more easily accessible to full-time workers.

    A general defintion of a "living wage" is one that exceeds the level at which you qualify for gov't assistance based on your income/expenses. In other words, it depends, largely on your number of dependents and "household" income.

    Only in your world.

    But thanks for showing that your interest is again in lower wages.

    Or do you think the fast-foodie at the drive-up window should be paid $30,000 a year?
    Too funny, you undercut Conservatives question "name a corporation that doesn't pay a living wage"....and Con "likes" it!

    Too f'ing funny!

    They provided health insurance for every single employee, part- or full-time for $15 a pay period until just now . . . when they've disallowed new hires who are working under 24 hours a month. This is a very generous program. I'm sorry it doesn't fit with your attempt to paint this company as some kind of monster.

    Union organizer in a previous life?

    BTW, I am not going to believe a former manager nor an employee who thought that by hiring on behind WalMart's deli counter she was starting "her career."

    I'm glad we could amuse you!! Con and I tag-team like that quite frequently.
