Fast forward a little and I'm not thrilled with the concept but I realize working adults cannot live on minimum wage. People are real quick to condemn things as bad ideas but rarely offer their own solutions that should be better ideas than the one we're criticizing, myself included.

So let's assume the minimum wage is a bad idea but there are working adults who can't make ends meet on it, let alone less than minimum wage it it were to be done away with. What better idea do you propose when working adults can't afford to live?
