The value of the minimum wage is LOWER than it was in the 1960’s.
Remember this next time someone tries to say those pushing for a higher minimum wage are “whiny” or “entitled”.
cost of living goes up…. while wages literally go down.
If you argue against raising the minimum wage, you are literally arguing that some workers do not deserve to live out of poverty, despite having jobs.
No other way around it.
And if that’s your argument, don’t you ever dare say a word about people needing to work harder.
