    Do you understand that this country was built on equal opportunity not equal outcome??

    Yes, market forces can drive wages down just like they can drive wages up, i.e. North Dakota. As for subsistence levels, do you realize they are different for each state in the country? You don't like the cost of living in your state, move. There are no guarantees in life other an equal opportunity. Personal responsibility does exist except in the liberal world where everyone else is to blame for poor choices including dropping out of school.

    There is no equal opportunity in low wage areas of the country.

    A fundamental problem with conservatism and libertarianism is the absurd idea that equal opportunity exists

    I can see why that is the case with you. I didn't have any problem moving up from minimum wage. Liberalism and cities like yours are destroying opportunities for a lot of people

    The problem with liberals is everyone is a victim and no one has personal responsibility for anything. I never had a problem working my way up and according to a lot of people here I am not that smart.

Frankly, I don't care what someone else is paid. Only two percent of workers over twenty four years of age work for minimum wage so we aren't talking about a big problem here.

    I'm sorry but making 7.35/hr is technically over the minimum wage and skews that statistic.

    The number of underemployed workers, including those unemployed, involuntary part-time for economic reasons, and marginally attached, 2000

    That is a bit more accurate, 30 M people under employed that is a big problem.

    Which is why a higher minimum wage is a good thing.
