    Bunk. If you raise the wage, you raise the threshold. Poverty is determined by factors such as the CPI and median wages. You raise the floor, you raise everything above it. If anything, a minimum wage increase would raise the percentage of people living below the poverty level. The raise would start to catch people with wages slightly above minimum wage and the poverty level because those jobs would not be reintroduced into the marketplace with a wage of a similar percentage above MW as before.

    Um...what?

    "Livable wage" - another subjective term. You cannot economically dictate a "liveable wage". It's just as subjective as someone crying "fair".

    What ever ignorance you have to dictate to yourself to continue such hatefulness.... Livable wage is subjective yes, but easily understood, and reasonably easily computed for most of the USA. Bless your heart.

For those few low wage Walmart workers that have large families and little or no other income this is likely a welcome helping hand as they can then afford to feed their extended family and guests too.
    Why is private charity seen as bad by those constantly demanding that ever more charity be given by the gov't?



    Charity is when an individual voluntarily gives to other people.

    When governments give to people they must first take from some people.

    That's the way that it works.

    It was a simple analogy.

    It isn't hatefulness at all. It's reality. A livable wage for me is not a livable wage for someone else.
