For one, I very very rarely eat fast food. It's unhealthy. What I'm saying is unskilled entry level labor doesn't deserve $15 an hour. If all you can muster is minimum wage then work 60 hours per week or multiple jobs if you have too. Don't increase wages for low skilled labor just because someone thinks you should make double what you make and that you are somehow entitled to only having to work around 40 hours a week to make a "living wage." Find roommates, go without cellphones/cable/internet, eat cheap. Raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour is just another stupid entitlement mindset ploy. Want to make $15 an hour? learn a skill or a trade and enter a labor market where your labor is worth $15, don't hike up what businesses have to pay just because someone is entitled to a subjective "living wage" that is on the backs of the company to provide.

This is the face of today's fast food workers -- 70% of whom are over the age of 20, nearly 40% have children and a third of them have spent some time in college, according to U.S. census data.

Don't go "oh please." That's the consequence of your believing they don't "deserve" $15/hour. People like you often put "living wage" in scare quotes, but there isn't an alternative to that. People need to feed and house themselves. To, you know, live.
These higher paying jobs you think they are "supposed" to be getting? Don't exist. You cannot take every minimum wage worker and place them in a $15/hour job. There aren't openings for that. There are millions more unemployed people than there are job openings, are all of those unemployed people just lazy and stupid? And now you want to add to the unemployed group every minimum wage worker who you dictate is supposed to have a better job.
Just enter a higher-paying labor market! It's that easy! If it's so easy, why aren't you a billionaire? Just enter a labor market where your labor is worth that much, digsbe.
The real consequences of your belief is my tax dollars subsidizing McDonald's ****ty wages. Let the market decide, my ass. WalMart is the biggest welfare queen in American history.
One of you will end up here next!
