Avoid Minimum Wage Jobs

Minimum wage jobs pay so low, you can barely make a living. Do you have kids or other dependents? If yes, minimum wage jobs will make sure you stay poor, for the duration of the job. The thing is that we cannot have a decent lifestyle with a low paid job.

Earnings from a minimum wage job will barely be enough to cover your living expenses. You won't be able to save any money. If you don't have any savings, than you're automatically vulnerable to external life shocks, such as a sudden disease or trauma. If you don't have money, you might not be able to pay for the best treatment necessary for you.

I think, staying at a minimum wage job long term is "life-threatening". Yes, sometimes, at moments in life, when we are teenagers, we have to take such a job, but we must persevere in searching for a better paying job and move as fast as possible.

When i see "Now Hiring" signs for minimum wage jobs, my heart fills up with disgust, because i know that people that will take those jobs will barely make a living. They will be unhappy.

I think corporations should pay higher salaries in lieu of their mega profits. I'm outraged by all the super rich multinational corporations that pay minimum. And people as well, should study or try harder to get a better job, for their own sake. GetABetterJob now.

What do you think about this? Feel free to sound off in comments.
