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

minimum wage is ment as a base to get started on. the idea is to start and work your way up. my first job i worked at minimum. it wasn't great but it got me by. second and following jobs i worked my way up higher up the 'food chain' and no longer live on minimum

Orygun is $7.80 (not bad considering no sales taxes here).

$5.25 here in MN. ..... Yeah, I do struggle a little bit considering my wage at the winery (not as much as you'd expect considering my only benefit is drinking on the job -required) so I picked up a part time job which pays 9.00/hr and that is also 65 miles round trip.
