Open a business and put your financial future on the line while paying minimum wage types a living wage plus your idea of acceptable benifits. Or STFU.
Don't have to. There are plenty of examples that show treating your employees like human beings and not relying on government assistance to pay your workforce is a viable business model.
It's hilarious how much overlap there is between people that complain about people on public assistance and the people that go to the mat to defend the business practices that increase the need for public assistance (solely to boost profits).
Apparently single mothers on public assistance = leeches, but big, hugely profitable businesses on public assistance = a must for society.
