Get a roommate.

Try to look for one who is worth more than minimum wage. Maybe you could learn something from them.
 Quoting: LunaticFringe


what i learned from roommates is dont get a roomate
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28877344




I agree, although sometimes financial or other restrictions require you to have one.

If you can at all AVOID it, of course, do.

If you CAN'T, and absolutely MUST get a roommate, DO NOT ROOM WITH A BEST FRIEND, unless you've already lived together. I've seen more friendships torn apart by becoming roommates than anything else, except maybe money.
 Quoting: TheSuperMarket


This is so true. Never live with good friends.

Minimum wage is just a starting point for teenagers and people just entering the workforce or the retired as a hobby, it is NOT designed as a career choice.
 Quoting: BRIEF

Yea Really ? like there are a bunch of career choices out there.

Make your own, no one owes you a damn thing.
 Quoting: BRIEF


the fallacy with that sentiment is this - if nobody owes me then I don't owe them. Fair enough. But in actual fact, the government says I owe them - merely to exist in the land I was born in.
You would find that out as soon as you attempt to go into the woods on public land and build a shelter and raise some vegetables and hunt.

First of all raising the minimum wage will do jack shit. If companies make less profit because of wages then all they will do is turn around and increase the price of their goods.

All an increase in minimum wage is doing is causing inflation.

 Quoting: BRIEF


Adjusted for inflation from 1960 til now minimum wage should be $16/hr.


So what was good for teenagers in 1960 is good as a minimum wage today.

So yes you are correct. But it doesn't change a thing.



I seem to see countries that are raising their wages have higher growth.

Australia, Canada, China.


And countries that have stagnant wages having stagnant growth.

United States, United Kingdom, Germany

And countries that have shrinking wages in recession.

Hey AC,
The rent is per month, so the hours would be per month also, not per week.

Two or three people working minimum wage jobs could easily share a 2 bedroom apt.

Australia $16+ per hour.
Canada $9.75-$10.30

Both of which are higher than our $7.25/hr and both of which currencies are higher than ours.

So again why does that work for them but not the US?

The answer is that inflation isn't immediate.

There is a lag in the increase in money and the inflation that follows. During that time people can buy more stuff.

So again. Why is every country on the planet with a growing economy raising their wages?

You can't answer that because it proves you wrong.
