There is people over age 24 making min wages. I wouldn't work for min wage.so that means I wouldn't work at all. Repubicans want to keep poor people down. You couldn't pay me to vote. Don't vote and never will.

mgoode. You don't vote, WILL NOT work for minimum wage. (and from your comment have no real education or skill worth $9.00 anyway). Obviously you care nothing for the people or your responsibility as a US citizen (if you are one). You sit on your lazy a**, collect from those who do work and have the balls to bi**h. YOU AND THOSE LIKE YOU ARE AMERICAS BIGGEST PROBLEM. If you do not work or vote sir/mam you are simply a drain on the nations resources

That question is especially relevant because teens and young adults between Age 15 and 24 represent approximately half of all minimum wage earners in the United States, not to mention making up a disproportionate share of individuals who earn wages just above that level.
