You shouldn't be promised a "living wage." If the reimbursement for your labor is too low then reject the job offer and go somewhere else that will pay you better. If you have to then work 50-60+ hours making minimum wage to manage your bills or find roommates and split living expenses. You shouldn't be somehow owed or expecting $15 an hour for low skill job like working as an entry level staff member at a fast food joint.

    If they protest I hope universities, trade schools, or companies wanting to train individuals on a skill show up to educate these people on opportunities to make themselves a better job candidate and market themselves as a skilled and educated worker.

    when i read/hear about places such as australia with a high minimum wage, i also notice that there is a broad middle class
    wonder if one has something to do with the other?

    see how easy that was?
    To say? Yes.

    That's why someone in in the past came up with the phrase, "talk is cheap".

    I think they were trying to come up with a more agreeable way to say "worthless".
