Minimum wage is for Tards who still live in Moms basement. When you get some skills, work your way up in the company and put on Big Boy pants you can afford to move out on your own. Until then shut the fuck up, get off the internet and get to making a better future for yourself.

funny that all the tards bitching about minimum wage are likely the same tards that sat by as their pols allowed 15 million illegal immigrants into the country to dilute the workforce. Want better wages? Send the illegals back out of the country and watch US wages go up, up, up. You made this bed, libtards. Now, eat your fucking minimum wage peas!

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.

I'm not in the US, but oh well. Most apartments around here are about £350 a month, which is £87.50 per week. Minimum wage is £6.19 / hour. That means you have to work about 14 and a half hours to earn enough for a weeks rent.

How does this make sense, when there is section 8 housing galore, all over the place.

I could work 10 hrs a week, at 8.50 / hr., and still be able to afford a pretty decent 2 bd apt, in a decent neighborhood, all through Section 8 Housing.

At least thats how it works in L.A.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16525247


Yea, here in my part of cali I have a friend with an annoying libtard girlfriend. She works maybe 10 hrs a week doing in home senior care. Makes min wage, but since she has section 8 she pays like 20 bucks a month for rent. She gets foodstamps, has a nice cellphone, a ps3, a xbox, cable t.v

It's sickening how comfy our government has made it to be lazy.
 Quoting: *HEISENBERG*


Yep ... exactly. Im near the ocean.. in Cali.. and we have section 8 housing up the ass here in my building.

I pay 1600 for a 2 bd. But Im fairly certain my neighbor pays 400.00 for his 2 bd. Thats also the thing with Cali.
Every new apt complex being built today, must include a certain number of section 8 rentals in their buildings.

So we have all sorts of rif raff here by the beach now, because of section 8 housing. And they wont stop building.

There are two types of people posting on this thread for the most part. Those who have skills, and those who don't. Those with skills, do not make minimum wage ($9.16) in Washington state. They have skills that their employer finds VALUABLE, so they get paid much more. Those who don't are on minimum wage, or unemployed, or simply unemployable and get free shit from the libs like Obama Phone and Food Stamps, and BITCH AND MOAN because life is not fair. There may be one or two who are really in a tough spot and have skills, but not more than that. I make $55 an hour, work 35 hours a week, and quit making min. wage at age 17. Quit bitching at Brief, and go AQUIRE some skills, it's not that fucking hard. Just be willing to work and learn.

People on here seem to think that they're rocket scientists or something. Three years of college is about as hard as learning to wipe your own ass as a child.

Anyone could do your job, unless, of course, you're IQ is somewhere above the 93rd percentile and you do something that requires actual thought and not the simple memorization and dedication needed to pass 3 years of undergrad school.

The problem is, we have 300 coming out of college looking for a to work in a field that only has 200 available opportunities in their city.

And if you think that those "teenage level" jobs are that easy then I highly recommend you go take a break from your 60hr a month job and try working as a waiter in a busy restaurant or some other shitty job. Physical and mental stress is what makes a job hard.

I gotta agree with Brief.

I'll guesstimate there is around 3,000 jobs to be found in my county...

very little of that is decent paying jobs...

The surrounding counties have even less jobs...

those people come here and work...

And everybody hires their cousin to work lol lol

and everybody in a 10 county radius is related lol

so its hard getting your foot in the door even in Mcdonald's around here...

alright as per the 2011 census
13,842 live in my county...
7,817 lives in another Leech county
4,820 live in another leech county

Tri county area = 26,479 people

3000 jobs in my county... 1000 available in each of the other counties...

thats 4000 jobs for 26,479

28,751 people live in another county that comes here for jobs but that county has a decent amount of jobs on their own turf...

even though many from that county works in my county.. i wont count them...

Its not rare to see 40 year olds with Rank 1 degrees flipping your burgers...

This area pretty much has nothing... if you want something you have to either leave... or get smart...

Now i dont make a lot of money... fuck im poor as dirt...

BUT I get by... bills get paid... lights stay on and i just finished eating rotini and Alfredo for lunch...

A 3 dollar meal that fed 4 people. not too bad.

anyways... since my area sucks, and i dont want to wait 10 years for a shot at flipping burgers... and i dont want to leave...

what am I gonna do?

cry cry cry cry?

no, I'll dig a fucking ditch for 20 bucks

i'll clear your driveway of snow and salt it for 20 bucks

i'll cut and chop a load of firewood and deliver it for 50 bucks

I raise a big garden and produce most of my own food... i dehydrate, can, pickle, freeze food all summer and fall long.

I hunt and gather, deer, rabbits, fish, turkey, squirrel, if it crawls its fair game to be eaten.

No need to poach... i can gather all i need during the allotted season.

i'll jump in and take every legal chance I can to make a dime.

Its not easy... its not a very good long term plan.
and it fails financially when emergencies pop up. But i know this... This sorta lifestyle wont work forever... but for the time i manage... and im happy.

I'm going to college this year and im going to get a shiny piece of paper... and im gonna find me a job that will pay good.

I could just sit here all year round a let the lights go out... and starve... but i dont.

no one owes you anything, its a cold cold cold world...

if you want something...

you gotta carve it outta blood, sweat, tears and by using your brian morans!

Government can't create jobs or raise wages, it can only destroy jobs and raise unemployment.

THis minimum wage bullshit is merely shovelling jobs overseas to China by the boat load.

Before minimum wages there were jobs galore in the USA, now the USA is able to produce noting on an industrial scale beyond guns, booze and hookers.

Re: How Many MINIMUM WAGE Hours Does it Take to Afford an Apartment in Your State?
The beauty behind minimum wage isn't that it is a livable wage. It is a base pay that sets a standard.

If you work for min wage, it is great for paying for some minor essentials or for kids to supplement parents income.
Or for people who don't have skills to at least make enough money to get by.

Livable wage is a whole other subject, if you think that everyone should get a min wage that is livable, than you go against what capitalism is.

Look I have a high school diploma. I got into the work world and made minimum wage. Found out, hey you can't live by yourself off of this money, I then decided to better myself.

I got into the tech field and worked my way up through certifications and doing a damn good job. I made my company a ton of money by bettering their processes and workflows.
When raise time came around and I got skipped over, I went to my boss with solid data to prove the amount of savings I achieved for the company.

Now I have worked through the ranks, paid my dues and am doing quite well.

Without min wage I would not have been able to scrounge and save to take tests and get training materials. If I made a livable wage I would have probably done nothing with my life.

This is back when min wage was just over 4/hour.
So for all you folks looking for more govt sanctioned handouts so you can clean bathrooms for a living and live contently, you need to stop feeling sorry for yourself and realize you have to better yourself, make yourself marketable.

You have a clean slate right now, you really can do anything you want to do. But if your dream is to sit back and do bare minimum and expect to get by you are only cheating yourself.
