Damn Robert, the minimum wage is supposed to be for people entering the job market with few to no job skills, not a wage to raise a family on. You are not expected to " support a family , buy a house, a car and other things most people hope to have " when you are starting out. That comes when you gain skills and your wages rise.

It worked that way for me (and 100's of millions of others) in my 80+ yrs of living and working. Just because some rock stars jump earning levels doesn't mean every young person will be so lucky. You must be a teenager.

It ain't rocket science!

Your premise is false. You're presupposing that you will be able to gradually earn more starting with a minimum wage job, and this is NOT necessarily the case .You really are naive and out of touch with reality, like most conservatives today .

In his State of the Union address, President Barack Obama proposed raising the minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $9 an hour. That would be almost a 25 percent increase. Let's look at the president's proposal, but before doing so, let's ask some other economic questions.

Are people responsive to changes in price? For example, if the price of cars rose by 25 percent, would people purchase as many cars? Supposing housing prices rose by 25 percent, what would happen to sales? Those are big-ticket items, but what about smaller-priced items? If a supermarket raised its prices by 25 percent,...
