    Poll: Assuming a 40 hour work week, is minimum wage a lot?

    No it is not__Mostly because the "Minimum Wage" was intended to be a "Fair Wage" not a "Living Wage"_

    People should take this into account before dropping out of school and accept it as the consequences of their bad choices_

    Really now people; expecting a high-skill pay-check for working a low-skill job is a bit asinine, don't ya think?!

    And if it happens to be a college graduate working a low-skill job then they should be thankful for the minimum wage paycheck they receive to tide them over until they can advance to the position they've been educated to fill_

    But if the job market is a mess, try electing candidates to public office who will make policies to fix rather than hinder it_

    This is not a yes or no question...There are to many variables involved.

    Obviously, damage was done - someone is dead who didn't want to be dead. Just because you can't pin it down to one person/one cause it won't bring back the dead.



    Pollution is no different in most cases. Apparently you'd like to live in that same world with Henrin - sewers flowing openly beneath a sky gray with pollution.

    A person is dead who didn't want to be dead. Obviously there is damage. The evidence of the damage is a dead body - it doesn't matter than you can't pin it down to one person/one cause. You can't usually pin pollution down to one person/one cause either. Does that mean pollution doesn't exist in most cases?

    Nope, hence the name minimum and not liveable wage.

    That's only if you get 40 hours a week. Most minimum wage workers work far less than 40 hours.

    I have never heard of anybody dying from too low of a wage. I'm no coroner so I'm not saying it doesn't happen. I'm just saying it must be very rare.

    Geography is the main variable. Use Lauringburg, North Carolina for the question.

    What are the other variables that are needed to be considered?
