Patrick, I’ve gotten more out of your comment than I did with the article lol. You just explained it in a way that makes sense as to why a minimum wage increase can be devastating to the people requesting it. Simply put, get an education (it’s free for minimum wage workers…at least the Pell grant is). They’ll give you a laptop (added to your tuition you won’t have to pay until 6 months after graduation) to take online classes. NO EXCUSES!
