Obama Warned Us – Poverty

Earning the minimum wage while raising a family shouldn’t mean living in poverty. It’s time to #RaiseTheWage: http://ofa.bo/a0dR

    Earning the minimum wage means that you can’t afford to raise a family so learn to control yourself or you’ll be living in poverty. It’s time to #elect a non-communist president

    It should mean living in poverty, great incentive to get moving from a starter job to something better.

    Two questions, Mr. Precedent:
    Does the federal government establish a basic poverty level, below which assistace programs kick in?
    Does the federal minimum wage work out to an income above or below this?
    I assume you can see where I’m headed with this.
    No?

    Is there someone else we can talk to?

    “Earning the minimum wage while raising a family shouldn’t mean living in poverty.”

    It SHOULD mean becoming an adult now that you are raising a family.

    if you think you’re supposed to be able to raise a family on minimum wage you you clearly weren’t paying attention when you may have also learned something that may have kept you from having to settle for a minimum wage job at a point in your life when you’re trying to raise a family.
