So $10.50 is a living wage?


Only if you're working two jobs.

My point however is that the full time wage at the current minimum (federal) @ $14,500 a year isn't.

The full time In and Out Burger associate @ $21,500 a year has a chance to make ends meet.

and further, even if In and Out Burger upped the wage 15%, Ms Torres would still be the youngest female billionaire in the U.S.

The argument put forward by conservatives is that increasing wages above the federal standard of $7.25 an hour would destroy jobs in America.
