Mary Poppins sings, dances, performs magical feats, and keeps a smile on her face while raising a banker’s kids -for $7.25 an hour.

Minimum wage will never be a "living" wage no matter how high you make it. Since it's inception in 1938 at $0.25 and it's 23 historical increases it never has pulled people out of poverty or given them a "living wage". I totally agree that there should be a minimum wage.
