The $15 Wage is a Bogus Problem

In most areas of the country, $15 an hour will not be enough for you to pay your rent, eat, have a car, a phone, and have a little fun. But in most areas of the country $7.25 is not the minimum wage. In many of the prosperous states the minimum wage is usually between $10 and $15. In the other states, the ones that don’t have much of a healthcare system, good schools, or a booming economy, a lot of people are suffering already.
