You could not afford a two bedroom apartment and a bus pass on 15 dollars an hour. That is only 30K per year, far below the median income in the US. So yeah jobs that pay far below the median income I would call shit pay. Median household income in US is 61,937 over an average 1.3 income earners. So about 47,643 per individual. 15 dollars an hour translates to about 31,200 if you get paid for 52 fourth hour weeks. That puts you firmly in the lower percentages of income earners. You would need almost a 50% raise at that level to even be a median income earner. And before anyone complain that this number isn’t representative of low income areas, I will use as an example West Virginia which has the lowest median household income in the US at 43,469 (WSJ 2018). That means the median income in that state is still 1000 higher than a 15 an hour rate. median household income is 61,937 so a two income household making $15 per hour is at the median household income. In many places of the country $15 per hour won’t rent a studio apartment but in other parts of the country it will rent a 2 bedroom house. Most of the people who perform hard labor to produce the very food we need to survive are paid $15 per hour or less which frankly is a crime. question is are you willing to pay more for food and other services so that people can be paid more. My experience in business tells me many people who think workers should be paid more want to pay the very least for the services and products those workers provide.
