A number of fast food workers walked off the job to protest the fact minimum wage is too low.
To pay for a middle class lifestyle, minimum wage, a little more than $7 an hour, is hardly enough. But minimum wage should not be viewed as a final destination. It should be viewed as a s starting point. A low paying job is a place to get started in the world of work.
Another major problem is that too many teenagers can't find jobs because too many employers are unwilling to take a chance on them. Maybe the minimum wage should be reduced to encourage more people to hire those who have never had a job or have been away from the workforce for a long period.
"I need an opportunity to work and not enough people are hiring," said Justin Korth.
