Cry me a river- get a real job

"...But Council of Trade Unions president Helen Kelly said the 25c rise was "mean'' and barely covered inflation. The two percent rise was below inflation forecasts for the year of 2.3 percent, she said..."

Reality check.

You are not meant to stay in a minimum wage job for your whole working life.

These jobs are STARTING positions.

Ones that will be filled by robots if the minimum wage goes up too fast.

Then there is the knock-on effect- Minmum goes up, it pushes ALL the lower paid jobs up.

And pushing an idiot stick is, in reality, not worth a hell of a lot...
