40 million people in America live under the threshold of poverty. 99 per cent of them is due to the minimum wage that is so low?
What we are seeing is a modern form of slavery and plantation. Most of the 40 million under the threshold of poverty are BLACK people, who get hired nowhere, other than in jobs that pay minimum wage. And the greedy CONS still deny their racism and white privilege

Yet the US state with the most poverty is not only entirely blue but also has one of the highest minimum wages in the country. Could be that actively working to import the hemisphere's poorest might be skewing those stats a bit ;-) Trust me, in California blacks are NOT the poorest demographic.

You do realize that the 'poor' in America are some of the richest 'poor' in the world, right? Even on welfare, America's poor, given the housing, health care, food, financial allowance and other benefits live a quality of life equal to over $35,000 a year TAX FREE, right? Americans do not know poverty.
However, the minimum wage is not the problem. The minimum wage was intended to give snot nosed teenagers an opportunity to experience working for a living. So, if you are one of those folks who actually value working for a living, you're trying to live on your own and are only making minimum wage? The wage is not the problem. You are.

sadly enough...in the non-trolling world.... this is the exact kind of "thinking" that California "progressives" have used to lower educational standards for decades...
"it's scientifically proven that high school graduates get better jobs than kids who drop out..." they say.... "so the logical solution is to make it easier to get diplomas so more kids get better jobs..."
today, half of high school seniors in Los Angeles test at below 7th Grade levels in basic subjects.... fewer than half of GRADUATES can meet the minimum standards for state and community colleges...
very few are going to take your act seriously..... but unfortunately, too many don't realize that too many people in positions of responsibility over our children and future practice the same level of "thinking" on a daily basis...

How many of these 40 million poverty stricken people have an iPhone? How many are obese? How many receive money from the government instead of from an employer? And how many have your personally ever given a job?

Minimum wage jobs are entry level , supplementary and temporary . Anyone that plans to make a career out of an entry level job needs vocational counseling .

It is one of the attributes of capitalism. Nor does it affect only ethnic minority people
Shame on such a nation

Plenty of white people make minimum wage as well.
Stop being so RACIST.

I blame racist liberals for not hiring blacks.
The liberal Jews have many business', why don't they hire the black man? Why liberal?

if this is because of Conservaitives, then why are majority of the 40 million under poverty live in Liberal controlled states? Ever notice that the majority live in Democrat supported Cities? Seems more like a cause of Democrats then Republicans.

All blacks have to do is change their culture and get an education...all things will change after that. Nothing will change until than.
SJW legislation will change nothing...………..50 years of EOE has not changed a thing.
