The weight of the economy does not coincide with minimum wages. I have a child with a child who cannot afford shelter, food and clothing with the minimum wage he earns. How fair is it that the companies are allowed to pay a very small portion of billions they are profiting from consumers in which a lot of them are their employees? How fair is it to employees, not only getting paid a small wage but the employees are now hiring people as contractors to not only pay what you are worth but not having to offer insurance by hiring as contracting work? So, little money and no insurance? #moderndayslavery.
