On the minimum wage

When I started working at the library 20 years ago I was paid $7.43 an hour. At 37.50 hours per week I made $14,000 per year. I paid no taxes and that was a good thing, but apartments rented for half what they do now and the cost of living was a lot lower in general. I even qualified for assistance with my phone bill, it was called Universal Lifeline. Again, that was 20 years ago. How anyone in this day and age can survive on $7.50 an hour is beyond me. I am sure you have guessed that I am for raising the minimum wage by now. You'd be right! I gotta go with my girl, Nancy Pelosi on this one.
