If minimum wage was abolished.

How much would the unemployment rate drop?

Seriously.

There are a ton of people that are only worth 6 bucks an hour.....


...some less.

That's something people should consider, absolutely.

Doesn't mean people shouldn't work for 5 bucks an hour.

Even if they were on partial unemployment.

There is a better way to do it than the way it's being done now.

I think there should be 2 minimum wages a wage for people considered a dependent (ie kids living at home) vs a minimum wage for people on their own who need a livable wage

I don't, but I could.

1 sausage biscuit for breakfast.
1 Double Cheeseburger for lunch
1 double cheeseburger for dinner

You can most defiantly live off of that.

And if your sorry as shit, you should.

The problem is that so many people are paid less than they're worth as it is.

There are too many professions that aren't being paid what they contribute.

There are definitely people being paid far more than they're worth, but there's an equal number of people being paid far less.

SD man, I'm not sure I buy you being able to live square off 7 bucks a day. When you factor in shelter (as you mentioned) transportation, and other ammenities (laundry detergent, soap, other items that are required if you want to maintain employment in the first place), that seven dollars won't take you nearly as far as you say it will.

Hell, your baby boy probably costs you far more than seven dollars a day.

The problem is a lot of people are on unemployment because they dont want to work... It just amazes me that they somehow continually get unemployment/social security and there only issue is that they are on various drugs, are alcoholics and overall are just a burden to society.

restrictions and laws are put in place as the result of abuse. removing minimum wage would mean thousands of employers would reduce the wage for menial jobs well below their value just because there's always some schlep willing to take it. That doesn't mean that's what it's worth.

The value of the job isn't based on what you can get someone to do it for.

A. no way in hell you only spend three bucks a day on food. That means you are spending a dollar a meal. B. you have two kids, where do they factor in.
C. you are truly not in a position to judge the financial requirements of anyone else but you.
