Do you want to live in a society where people work for less than it costs to live?
A living wage means employees earn enough to afford to live.
Not a fancy life but pay for lodging, food, the necessities.
Not alll jobs should be living wage jobs.
There should criteria with no loopholes for employers (maybe a % of all workers must be paid a living wage so they can't only hire partime workers).
