    But implementing a $15 minimum wage will force employers to pay those that are underpaid at $8.50-$10 hour to pay them $15/hr. That's the end goal. "Nobody makes $7.25" is meaningless to the discussion.

    your employees: ", in Texas, a state stuck at the federal minimum wage, 2.7 percent of workers reported earning less than $7.50 per hour last year. "

    i'll never advocate for re s at fast food drive-thru's to get anything more than min wage and at our current wage of $7.25/hr. those re s deserve less tbh.

    If they work full time, 40 hours a week those humble and hardworking "re s" have as much of a right to make a living wage. Don't you see all those "Now Hiring" signs by fast food restaurants? A $15 minimum wage will take care of that.

    nope, they'll still be re s who up orders or make people repeat orders and still them up. those re s deserve no more than $1.15/hr.

    it's amazing how nearly every damn fast food hole has "hiring" signs out nearly all time.

    The churn is even worse than rideshare drivers. Although one In'n'Out guy told me he took him 3 interviews to get hired, and he was making more per hour than rideshare drivers' average without the cost and risk of running his own car.

    Uber and delivery drivers that have to use their own car don't realize how much they are being ripped off.

    that's because they're mainly for high schoolers and not career arrested development re s tbh. the turn over rate is expected with high schoolers.

    'Every little bit helps':

    Minimum wage to rise in 24 states

    as a movement toward $15 an hour builds


    More broadly, 24 states and 48 cities and counties will raise their minimum wages in 2020 – a record 72 jurisdictions,

    Colorado lawmakers repealed the state’s wage preemption law last May ... Similar repeal efforts are underway in 12 other states,

    Kentucky, Mississippi, Oklahoma and

    HOLE Texas, all of whose pay floors are mired at $7.25.

    Fresh Calls to #RaiseTheWage After Study Shows $1 Increase Could Prevent Thousands of Suicides

    The House-approved Raise the Wage Act

    is among

    hundreds of (House Dem) bills sitting on the desk of Republican Senate Majority Leader / Grim Reaper Mitch McConnell


    https://www.commondreams.org/news/20...?cd-origin=rss

    these suicides due from low wages are Trash's cult mob, people who,

    like Germans in the 1920s/30s,

    see that capitalism and democracy hasn't worked for them,

    so they vote for a lawless, authoritarian pathological LIAR and his bull promises

    of bettering their lives by preventing non-whites, non-males, non-straights, immigrants

    from causing of the suicide group's plight.
