Obama is a socialist, he wants everyone to be "equal" like the borg. How is that even remotely arguable? I get positive comments through U2U all the time.

The reason only 9 for perfection..... The ones who meet this criteria will be trained for management or for transfer to cook school for restaurants in my empire I want to build... college my tab.....
As for bene's .... none offered ...

Waiters and waitresess make a pretty good dime if they work at a popular restaurant. Sure their hourly rate is low, but the tips they take in are most likely not counted on their taxes.
Minimum wage is used on jobs that are minimum to our needs. If you have to work minimum wage jobs then get 2 of them until you can find something better.

It really depends on the cost of living in a region. In Canada each province has their own minimum wage. Ontario's is $10.25 in Alberta its around $15. In Ontario the cost of living is high. Utilities are high,sales tax is 13%, property tax is through the roof, insurance costs a fortune, fuel is $1.25 a litre. The average price of a home is 300k . You can't live on $10.25 an hour here. Its impossible. I live in a small northern community that had nothing and average price of rent for a small apartment is around $800 monthly plus utilities. Groceries for a single person is around $400to a month and that's being cheap. Beer is costly, smokes too. Everything. Most jobs here are only part time.
Alberta mind you has a cost of living almost triple that of Ontario. Quebec is also higher for goods but living is cheaper.
I have always heard stories about the us saying the cost of living is much cheaper. I could be wrong. But it would account for a lower min wage.edit on 11/12/9 by metaldemon2000 because: (no reason given)

Oh haven't you heard, we aren't worth that. Hmmm, we are lazy, obese, worthless garbage who apparently won't work at a plethora of jobs that only mexicans will take? You haven't heard?
We are the garbage of the world! /sarcasm
I read that the Federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour. I knew it was low but I think that is crazy.How could you afford to live on that?
