When did it become acceptable to work all day and still not earn a basic living wage?
A living wage is the minimum income necessary for a worker to meet their needs that are considered basic (housing/food)

we fall behind the majority of other states... Many advocates believe that $10.58 an hour is a better wage rate, but it appears that progressive Minnesota does not...Currently half a million jobs in Minnesota are below $10 an hour...
Our current minimum wage is below what the federal government has set for the minimum wage...needless to say
A living wage is a moral value!
