It says nothing about sufficient money for food/shelter/clothing,etc.
Where in ANY well respected literature does it say that an employer is morally obligated to pay it's full time employee's enough to pay their rent/food/clothing/etc.?

My point has been 'long-term.' Those jobs are not meant, IMO, as careers. They are indeed stop-gap jobs for people who need to make ends meet. That is one purpose. As are the others I mentioned in another post.
And even if one does take a job a WalMart long term...why do they remain at starting leve/min wagel for years when management and other positions are available...there are even programs for such.
If you want more money, no one is stopping you from acquiring skills...no one stopped you in high school either but you are free to acquire them after as well. Nor from bettering yourself at your current employer.
But since the unskilled labor pool is huge, you really dont have any bargaining power. It is not immoral to pay what unskilled labor is *worth to you.* If someone wants more, then they will take or work towards a wage that is *worth it to them.*
