$7.25/hr does not qualify you for welfare unless you have kids, probably several of them. It's not even below the poverty line for an individual. I can assure you, I've made as little as $10,900 in a year and did not qualify for any forms of government assistance -- not welfare, not foodstamps, not anything.

$15/hr is $31K/yr. That's not modest. It's more than double my annual income, and I live alone and own a car. A minimum wage that high is bound to increase unemployment, so why send people into actual poverty by mandating that they must either be living in luxury or unemployed?

Never trust an operating system.
