    It's amazing how many people that work full time jobs are still eligible for public assistance. So instead of the employer paying a living wage, we the people end up footing the bill just to enhance the company's bottom line. That should piss everyone off.

    Why hasn't any of those liberal states passed $15 per hour or $20 per hour minimum wages? You know why? Because they know that it won't fix anything.

    Imagine this unique concept... Get established before you start having kids. Don't be trying to make it on a minimum wage with three or four kids and only one income. MAKE BETTER DECISIONS.

    Walmart is the worst offender I know of.

    Last job I had, there would always be homeless people coming to our designated smoking area to dig through the butt cans to find cigs.

    Jobs at Wal Mart or fast food aren't meant to provide for a family. They aren't meant to rely on to live as a single person either. I worked jobs like this for pocket money as a teen.

    So you observe their pay receipts, then follow them around to see what they purchase? I don't believe you're being quite honest here.

    Why? How does anyone think they can support themselves with jobs meant for people with no education or skill?

    Really? Walmart pays a starting wage of $11 per hour. They now offer college to employees who have been with them 90 days or longer for $1 per day. They give employees discounts on purchases. Offer job training for promotions, raises, insurance, paid vacation, etc. Yet, you still hate them.
