Many fast food workers around the country are currently going on strike demanding higher wages. They're asking up to $15 an hour. Some of these restaurants have even had to close down temporary.
In 2003, I started a minimum wage job and started earning $5.15 an hour. I was only 16 years old. I didn't make much, but this job allowed me to pay off my first car and purchase car insurance.
When I resigned from my management position in 2009, I was still only earning $7.75. I felt under appreciated for all the hard work I put into the job, but I wouldn't expect $15 an hour for a job that requires no high school or college education. There are still nurses getting paid only $18 and these are educated individuals.
What do you all think?
