    they can if they have the skills to be able to be paid that much money.

    no college no high school diploma good luck making something other than 7.25 an hour if you can even get a job.
    only a high school diploma good luck getting more than 7.25 an hour without a ton of skill in a certain area.

    as I said you can't even define what you are asking for but demand employers pay your arbitrary amount.

    please define a living wage 10, 20, 50 dollars an hour. if you can't then you just have an appeal to emotion argument.

Pay her the minimum that is needed to survive here and then we don't have to pick up that tab.
    that would be her fault. maybe is she had a better skill other than cashier or stocking shelves she would make more money. just a thought.

    sorry man, you can't give unions credit for this one... unions had exactly nothing to do with it.
    The pressure has been on for a long time, so it worked.

    This country will always have need of low skilled workers for the service sector. There are also trades jobs that cannot be contracted out. The argument comes with what you're going to pay such workers and walmart has decided that for now $10 an hour is okay. We cannot have a country wherein low skilled labor lives in huddles of poverty because the market wants to keep them poor.

    There a;ways going to need shelf stockers and cashiers, do you have any PhDs in mind for the jobs? There also plenty of of educated people out of work these days, so $7.25 an hour is good enough for them too eh?

    I worked at Sam's Club for a number of years and a guy there I worked with had a masters in Nuclear Physics. It was always fun when he messed something up because he'd always have this coming... "you know, it doesn't take a nuclear physicist to do that".

    You have a deep prejudice against unions for whatever reason, and that's what runs your thinking.

    Too bad actually.
