Minimum Livable Wages


Two out of three people in my house are female. Women and minorities, especially young people, are not being paid the same for the same work. It is time for the Sun to go down on this type of discrimination.
The term "minimum wage" needs to be called the "minimum livable wage". It should increase a little faster than changes in cost of living towards $15/hour so working people can afford to stay on the job. We should look at keeping the reduced rate for tipped employees as long as the tip credit formula remains a better deal for them.
