    It makes no sense. People earn what they are worth. They don't deserve more because they whine about it.
    any man/woman who toils for forty hours per week, doing the job they are assigned, should expect to earn a living wage for those efforts

    you have clearly shown where the chasm exists between conservatives and liberals

    What is a living wage? If it is above the minimum wage why isn't the DNC pushing for a raise in the minimum wage to the "living wage"?

    a living wage is that which an employee, working full time, would realize from his employment, rather than from government subsidies, to provide the living essentials

    Since I don't know what "living essentials" means to you and invite the standard of living being too damn high argument, how about just saying what you think minimum wage should be.

    Says who?

    It just shows that liberals are idiots.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    what if your skills are not sufficient to earn a "living wage" whatever that means?

    some people are not worth 10 dollars an hour

    Usually means the average cost of food and rent in that state/province/country.

    If you were to raise the minimum wage in order to pay for "essentials," the price of essentials would go up proportionally, while employment of minimum wage laborers would go down proportionately. Which still leaves your minimum wage laborer without his "essentials" and leaves other 90% of us screwed by massive inflation. Good luck with that.

    Lots of people aren't, that's why you start at whatever the local minimum wage is, you learn a skill, you work you way up in a company until you are earning enough to have a family or whatnot. The whole point of minimum-wage jobs is learning job skills and seniority within a company. They have never been intended to be a lifetime job and anyone who tries to spend their entire employment history working a minimum-wage job is an idiot.
