I've heard a ton of them, believe me. But one of the silliest? My father-in-law echoed it recently: "If those people aren't happy with minimum wage, they need to go school and make themselves better! Pull up them bootstraps! Blah de blah blah!"
Welp, guess what? Many people who are working at minimum wage jobs have a degree. What's the next argument? "Y'all should just get a Ph.D. if you don't wanna work for minimum wage!"
Oh, and also ... that 23% figure? It's real. So ummm ... whatcha think, time for a raise?
