You have a choice. You can pay a living wage or you can pay for the social safety net that subsidizes those jobs that pay less than a living wage.
Or, yet another choice those folks get other jobs that *DO* pay a living wage, or work two jobs to get by....
They can also try to be somewhat intelligent human beings and see that they need to spend time off work honing skills that get better jobs!!
It simply is NOT that hard to get a job out there. It might not be one you like right off to bat, but there are jobs to be had where you can support yourself. And yes, you might have to struggle and not have luxuries in life, but that's kind of your own fault, for not grabbing that education you were offered as a youngster.
You have to pay the piper at some point, and if you didn't do it early on, well you have to do it later in life, when things are even more difficult, but it can be done.
Society does not owe you a living, it is up to you to fight and do what is necessary to live and succeed in our civilization and economy.
Humans were born to adapt...so, fucking adapt!!
