Your wrong on what wages will provide, and what qualifies you for food stamps. Before my husband got a job, and I was only making minimum wage we applied for food stamps and were turned down because I was making minimum wage. According to the state minimum wage was enough to support two people who were NOT on any kind of housing assistance.

175 x 40 hrs = 7000 hrs
$5 ph x 7000 = $35000
$12 x 7000 = $ 84000 all per week
Probably couldn't afford it.

Exactly! And the customers wouldn't pay $8.00 for a hot dog. No one won in this debacle.
That is the reason why there must be uniform laws, at least when it comes to lower wages, otherwise there will always be some company who will start lowering the price of their products via exploiting their employees, which eventually leads to gaining signifcant market advantage compared to opponents, who pay their employees fairly.

Yea? what about McDonald and subways, and pizza huts ect.
I have seen pays vary according to other businesses or rather industries in an area doing well.
IF the rich don't want to pay a living wage. FINE,
don't let THEM make ANY profit..
And next hopefully people will find ways to destroy them. When 10 hungry unemployed people KNOW the rich guy has food. Hopefully they will take the rich out.
If everyone cant be rich then die fighting and making sure NOONE is.
although all this should not come on the expense of the people working in the company, who make the company even possible.
Can you name a real company that does that?
Give me some details too, like the jobs being done what they pay now, what they should be paid instead...
I think if I worked for a company that did this I would look for a different company...do you agree, or are we talking about a person whose greatest moment in life, and what will be their greatest accomplishment, was when they were hired as a shelf stocker at Wal-Mart.
