And by the way there are people living off of minimun wage (with lots of overtime) in this community. They are also sharing housing to make this work. If they were not protected under the minimum wage, would they be making enough to live on? Do you think it is ethical for a business (if there were no minimum wage) to pay people 2-3 dollars per hour for work because they can? With the prices of rent and food, that would not be possible for an unskilled worker to live on. What would stop that from happening? Just wondering what your thoughts were on that.
