This is why we should all support an increased minimum wage. The minimum wage was created in order for a SINGLE income to provide a living wage to a single income family.
If your argument is that of the above false quote, you are forgetting that minimum wage jobs don’t go away once school is in session. Jobs are for adults. If a teen gets a job so that he or she has spending money apart from what the parents are capable of supplying, GREAT! But don’t forget, jobs are for adults. Adults do adult things — like purchase transportation, shelter, insurance, food, healthcare services, and more.
