1. The Poverty Level Cost of Living is above that of a minimal wage earner. Has been since late 2008 - 2018.
If you wish to continue the math. The percentage per hour÷by a single gallon? Who is suffering more when you compare America's numbers
WHY is our government rewarding corporations with tax credits for employing welfare recipients, working them minimal amounts of hours at minimal wages, while keeping them dependant on welfare?
How does this math work?
You should be able to get 40 hours a week. Not 26+/-
It just makes sense.
You can't expect people to get off of welfare if they can't earn enough to break the chains that bind them.
Just my thoughts.
