That’s not how minimum wage increases work.
That’s correct, I also don’t think it was the meaning of the post.
I take offence to the whole post.
A different skill set than academia is not a “minimum” skill set and does not deserve to not be able to afford to live.
People cannot ask for a service and then treat the providers of that service with disdain.
I hate this argument because it makes me absolutely furious and I find it very difficult to discuss without emotion.
Two things. First, Military pay doesn’t include the cost of living pay they get, or, if in the barracks, the room and board included in that. Secondly, the workforce in fast food is starting to become more and more populated by people with higher education due to the fact that jobs are more scarce and college degrees have been devalued.
