Some are in that minimum wage position while in high-school and are learning about work ethic and saving for their first car or trying to help their family out - Awesome life choice.
Some are in that minimum wage position hoping/working/striving to better themselves and find a better paying job - They are making good life choices too.
Some are in that minimum wage position because for whatever economic reason beyond their control, they have lost their job but are hoping/working/striving to find a better job- again, they are making good life choices.
There is a smaller segment who have made poor life choices during their educational years and are expecting someone else to bail them out by forcing employers to subsidize their past poor life choices after real life shows them what idiots they were. This old adage seems appropriate in their case, "Life is tough, but it's tougher if you're stupid".

I have no sympathy for fry cooks with liberal arts degrees. They deserve the hellish, abject poverty they get.
This issue has nothing to do with personal responsibility. It has to do with clearing up a lie that the minimum wage was created as some sort of training wage or the lie that minimum wage jobs are really training jobs.
Come on, you're supposed to be a conservative, that means you're supposed to support personal responsibility for one's actions. I just don't see that
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
Screw them. Take the minimum wage job just to spite them.
