So how are they supposed to live until they get skills? Cost of living Is Up there is no way you can study/train and have a 40+ hour work week to just have food and shelter, and Transportation .
government aid? Nope can't do that because buying food for people is wrong, the poor should just work for dollars, while the first class buys up all the jobs to Stomp down competition(the goals of capitalism) then bribes Law makers to make laws that only benefit them . but ya know why would republicans/libertarians care about anyone else? if its not happening to you why should you care right? if poor people can't find work let them starve its there fault for starving right?

I'm not defending the fast food workers BUT speaking as an outsider looking into the US
Millions of these workers rely on some sort of public subsistence like 44% of said workers (costing taxpayers billions)
Fast food workers are no longer pimple faced teens looking for some extra cash, many of them have dependents
Just because a job is "unskilled" doesn't mean people shouldn't be able to pay for their own subsistence. And like I said in the first comment, a considerable amount of employment in America has come from the fast food industry (I'm having trouble finding the number but I'll search for them if you want). You can't expect a nation to prosper when a quarter of the people can't afford to buy a turnip.
I really don't want to bring this into the conversation out of fear that reply's might focus on just this but does the 13 year old child in Honduras deserve to be making a few quarters a day sewing shirts just because the child is an "unskilled" labourer

most mcdonalds workers are highschoolers who live with their parents. if they are adults, they should probably try a new line of work

Lots of people think that paying slightly higher wages will save taxpayers money but in the long run I'm confident that it will actually cost them more, for these reasons: Raising wages raises overhead. It costs the company more money to do business and they will not eat that cost. They won't take that hit to their profits so they pass the costs on to the customers, making goods and services more expensive. The increase in prices combined with inflation doesn't really do anything but make money worth less. Since prices go up the people making minimum wage still aren't making enough to live on and therefore still collect government assistance.
So in the end, our money is worth less, shit costs more, the people who weren't making enough still aren't, and the taxpayers are still paying for their assistance. Raising minimum wage doesn't really solve anything.

if only the companies would eat that instead, if only they would take the hit
i understand having to run a business and all, but profit is still profit, why cant they just make a little less, instead of forcing the price of goods to rise, just so they still make "more than good" profit

Raising minimum wage is a way of "counteracting" against the deterioration of peoples spending power because of inflation. So no.
Now, these businesses are recording HUGE profits (McDonalds had like one slow month last year). increasing the wages of workers in one of the MANY countries they operate wont affect the price to much. Also, minimum wages are not changed every year so if their was a dollar increase in big mac's then the price would eventually settle back down (a rise in price is not necessarily a bad thing for the economy)
Just look at Papa Johns, the price of pizzas rose like 12 cents after "obamacare" was introduced.

I once did marijuana and all the sudden my grades increased and I become productive around the house. I even sold all my games and got a part time job to cover my cost of living so my parents didn't have to worry so much. marijuana turned my life around, I have the best dreams now.
