I calculated based on minimum wage 30 years ago and cost of living
I made $11/hr back in 1992 which I considered a low wage. Minimum wage in 1992 was $5.50. Federally now it’s $7.50/hr. Some states have higher. , Florida being $10/hr and California being$13/hr

Prices of things since 1992 have gone up 300-700% but the Federal minimum wage has only gone up 100%. Gas, for example, has gone up 400%. Toyota pickup roughly up 500%. Rent where I used to live in 1992 has gone up 600%. Food I’m paying probably 300% more

Based on my calculations with cost of living , the min wage should be, at least, $25/hr to be able to pay your bills

I support making politicians' pay the minimum wage for their jurisdiction. If they represent a state, they get the state's minimum wage. If they are in a federal capacity, they get the federal minimum wage.

I bet we'd see some changes pretty quickly.

You know what it tells me, workers were never going to keep up, see that amount of money for labor isn't enough to live from and most can't make it out of that part of job creation which hasn't been many since the 1990s. The jobs from millwork were about the highest during the decades before that time. When money was backed in gold and silver you had lower prices. It stayed relatively stable; it was not perfect but so much better than now. Slave labor is what it has become, when you wage doesn't keep a roof over your head and food in your mouth it is slave wages.

Thanks for correctly spelling it out how much the standard of living has changed. I have to forgo a few important things to be able to save something, among them a decent (highly expensive) medical insurance.

Re: I calculated based on minimum wage 30 years ago and cost of living
That’s like saying, since you didn’t want to further educate yourself beyond the 8th grade, large companies should subsidize your living forever. Makes no sense. Do you realize there are several consequences for raising the minimum wage? Here’s a few examples:
1. Minimum wage is now $20 an hour, you are an employer and you have two candidates in front of you. A blue haired 400lb Cheeto eating video gaming 22 year old with no formal education, or a well dressed, manicured, out of work computer programming 60 year old college grad, white or black male or female. Who do you hire? Raising minimum wage puts the young folks out of work; it’s been proven over and over again. The folks fussing for higher wages price themselves right out of a job.

2. Minimum wage is now $20 an hour. What do you suppose Wal Mart will do if you just doubled their payroll costs for about 75% or their workforce? Just eat the cost? Nope, they will replace you and your friend with more reliable workers, lay-off workers and hire robots, reduce working hours, increase costs of their products across the board. How does this help anyone looking for minimum wage jobs? Don’t get me started on how this exponentially increases benefit costs (Workers Comp, 401K matching, etc).

3. Minimum wage is $20 an hour. You own a Mom and Pop hardware store; one of two left in your State. You’re looking to hire someone at $15 an hour, which is killing you because you can really only afford paying $12 an hour. Guess what, no candidates will seek you out as an employer because you are not willing to pay high wages for low skilled labor. You’re forced to work late, pick up shifts beyond what you’d normally work, shut down the store due to lack of help, close your business because you’ve reached burnout and bankruptcy.

Tell me again how raising the minimum wage would help the US?

The minimum wage is not designed to subsidize folks’ standard of living. It is designed to prevent employers from only paying $1 an hour to shovel coal or bust rocks. Think about it, if you don’t only want to make $10 an hour for the rest of your life, what do you do? Wine about how no one ever helps the little guy? No, you educate yourself, learn a skill/trade, you adapt, get two jobs, you survive. Forcing companies to pay you more is just like asking the Govt to pay off your student loans. No one is going to help you, you have to help yourself.

Minimum Wage was never meant to provide adequate living conditions, it is a bare MINIMUM, a starting point for you to work hard, get promoted, get pay raises, etc. Teenagers working at McDonald’s, that’s what it’s meant for.

If you are an able-minded adult complaining about minimum wage, you are a Tard.

Go look at the job listings in South Florida.
95% of them are paying $16.00 or less per hour.

This will not cover a studio apt in the warzone sections of the region.

To get $16 they want 10 years experience.
The vast majority are under $15 hourly.
Some parts of South Florida look like Afghanistan.

I make much more at $30 hourly and its still very hard to survive, can only save $3-500 a month.

OP the minimum wage isn’t intended to be a lifelong wage but is a starting point. Regardless of that you can’t let something like the minimum wage affect your thoughts about life and whether this reality is real.


Seek Christ friend. This world is full of problems which all are the result of mankind’s separation from God. Seek Jesus and find purpose and salvation and joy. Don’t do anything rash. Peace to you.

I worked 9 years for the worlds largest insurance carrier in a non entry level position. I was a compliance specialist specializing in quality of care investigations, reporting and resolution. I have people offering me $15 an hour when I already make $30. I wish they would blow their own brains out rather than sending me endless emails offering 50% of what I already make. They can do the job themselves rather than trying to enslave someone!
