Collect 8.00/hr, pay fica, health benefits. Go home with $45 per day for your labors after a hard day of putting up with peoples bull#.
Sit on your dead ass and collect welfare. Get $25 per day after healthcare benefits, snap benefits, section 8 housing / rent assistance. Earn money off paper in all your free time if you are so inclined.
Why do you think there is a labor shortage?

Where I am at, you top out at $24 per hour in 2 years. All the overtime you would want. Midwest is where to live. Cost of living is low as well. It is all about where you live and the cost of living. Illinois residents are leaving en mass because of the high property taxes and coming to Indiana.
We are low for the wage rate as well. Several large manufacturing plants pay 2-3$ per hour more.

If you can't live on $19 am hour? It isn't the wage that is your problem, it's your ability to make wise choices in how you spend your money.
