Republicans love to attack the federal government as a wasteful bloated bureaucracy, but the real waste is coming from corporations that are taking advantage of the federal government by paying poverty wages that tax payers then have to subsidize.
A full-time minimum wage worker could support a family of three. Today: A minimum wage job barely covers one person's basic needs. Over of minimum wage workers are adults, many supporting a family. Raise the wage.
Some politicians think that by eliminating the minimum wage, people will simply work for whatever companies will pay them. Just imagine NOT having all of "those" people around to do all the jobs no-one else wants to do
