Don't go there. It's like a giant theme park of bigotry, hatred, guns, flags, and freedom. All fueled by cheap illegal mexican labor. Actually go there, and then go literally anywhere else and just hate it.

For a second I thought it was a girl pun, it's late here and Im getting tired

Go to a park thingy with those little one time use grills... No wait... you cant be drunk in public there either right?

Uhmm... Shit... I mean, you could just fry them on a pan, though grilling is better...

Figure something out!

You don't have steak often, but shit, you should go invest in a steak, make it a thing!
Invite your bros over, throw some steaks on the grill, disregard the US pussy laws srs, we have no age restrictions on consumptions of alcohol, and you can buy it at 16 (18 if it's above 16,5% since 2012, before that it was just 16 on alcohol and go buy some beer but proper stuff and make it a steak and beer night!

1/2

To address the first part i have only a few things to say. Less than 30 percent of minimum wage workers have kids, that put's a major dent in the family of four number (assuming it was correct).

Studies have show that states with minimum wage increases had little to effect on combating poverty, and that only 11% of minimum wage benefactors live in poor households. That;s with an adjustment from 7.25 to 9.50, lower than your proposed 10.10. Conversely 42% of those people would be making three times the poverty line, well above the USA's median household income.

www.people.vcu.edu/~lrazzolini/GR2010.pdf

In addition using the best method of inflation $10.10 is still considered abnormally high in a historical context.
www.economics21.org/commentary/how-solid-case-raising-minimum-wage

And finally, all of this is meaningless because not all jobs are meant to support a family of four, two cars, and a house. Minimum wage jobs are entry level jobs made to allow people with little to no skills to gain experience and work their way up. As I said before, you have roughly 40 years at the minimum of work ahead of you and your only opinion is minimum wage? I doubt that.

That brings me to the second part. When it comes to your career (once again 40+ years) poor oversight is a very, very shitty excuse. Maybe you can be stuck doing it a for a few years to pay your bills, but there comes a point where you can plan for your future with the many programs the government offers to increase your skillset.

If you're laid off you might be forced for awhile, but don't tell me that you will be forced to keep working there for more than 6 months if you have any kind experience or education. If you can't find another job after that amount of time my original point stands, go back to school and get a new set of skills. If people without jobs can qualify so can you.

I have no idea what you're talking about in regards to veterans considering our unemployment rate is like a third of a regular citizens, meaning we're three times as likely to find a job. No, I have never seen a vet work at a minimum wage job, either they reenlisted if they didn't think they were going to make it on the outside, they got a job in the private sector, or they went to school on the G.I. Bill.

In regards to injured vets, and actually to all of those with obvious physical and mental handicaps, I don't think they should be required to work at all if they have a severe disability, but that doesn't have anything to do with raising the minimum wage for able bodied people.

Criminals get career counseling in prison to decide what they're going to do once they get out, in fact to receive parol you usually need to have a job waiting for you, or a school. Many colleges are stationed near prisons for just that reason, and I think all prisons allow you to take courses on the inside. The background check thing would still effect minimum wage employers like it does non minimum wage employers, the fact is people don't want to hire convicts. That's just how it works.

I think we can both agree (unless you don't live in same world that I live in) that the Cali economy is not a standard for the rest of the nation. Texas sticks with 7.25 or 7.50 I believe and they're in much better shape on all fronts than California.

This is just a case of personal responsibility. You have your whole life ahead of you, if you want to be successful you can be. Nobody stays in minimum wage unless they refuse to change their circumstances. I personally want to keep minimum wage as it is, kids need a place where they can learn what it's like to work and the value of a dollar. I guarantee you that if you start raising it to 10-15 dollars an hour you wont see places hiring pimple faced teens anymore.
