Most are petitioning for a minimum $10. wage.

How can anyone survive on $8 an hour Can't even afford an education to better oneself at that wage.
It'* even less when you factor in the taxes.

You can go on welfare and make the same for doing nothing......more if you have a child. I know some women that have multiple children just to collect more welfare money. Others have Grow Ops to supplement it. That'* just wrong

Well daaahhhhh. Look at the car that you drive and the city that you live in. I have to drive a 95 Bonne and live in Bramladesh. And my weekly salary is way....way less than yours.
