I wouldn't get out of bed for $12 an hour.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16489201

says the Australian, and its true in most other G20 countries

That's it, OP? a whoppin $12 an hour?

Holy shit, this economy is fucked

I made $15/hr in 1985 when I left college...I think machinists with a few years experience made $18-$30

..Hell, if you knew how to use Excel or Word Perfect and could type more than 50 WPM back then you could make $12-$15/hr working for a temp agency...I had friends who were musicians and worked temp jobs during the days, thats what they earned

In Canada, $12 is minimum wage, and most people make over $15. You can't even get a high school kid to work for you for $10

Americans should be paid at least $15-$20 an hr, just to pay for the ACTUAL cost of living, not the make-believe "zero inflation" economy the Feds pretend we live in

So running a cash register at a retail store should get you $15-$20 an hour? I'm sorry that's a joke. If anything the minimum wage should be reduced not increased.
