since that there are lots of different opinions on her i thought this would be a good place to post this how do u geel about the cost of living not reflection on the hourly wage? last i heard min wage was still 5.15 thats ridiculousu couldnt survive off of that even with two full time jobs. And i know alot of you will dissagree with me on this but i see nothing wrong with my generation living at home with the economy the way it is it is almost impossible to survive on your own. know its ot but it just bothers me alot when the older generation tries to down mine for the way things are we arent the ones who screwed the economy up

Minimum wage varies in each state. Here in Oklahoma, it's $5.15. In California, it's much higher, because the cost of living is much higher.

I do think minimum wage should be higher, but I also think that people should educate themselves and further their education so that they don't have to work off of minimum wage while trying to support a family.

Btw - the economy, statistically, is now better than it's been in years.

Hypno, maybe in YOUR opinion the economy is worse, but in fact, nationwide, it's better than it's ever been.

There's one article. Just did a quick search.

I'm sure you could find date to support either theory, this one is from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

This is only a comparison though between last year and this year, to find the data you're looking for, I'd do a search from the last 100 years.

You had better find a new teacher. My Dear, I grew up during a recession. We are no where close to one. You know you are heading for a recession when the cost of a killowat is near min wage, or when a loaf of bread or a gallon of milk cost more than the daily intrest on a 60 month 100K CD.

Yeah, that is what liberal professors say all the time. It a fact, if you do some research yourself. The unemployment rate is at the lowest it has been in years and year. The economy is better too.
