The minimum wage is so low, that even if you work a full time job, you do not earn enough to get off government assistance.

This is a fundamental disconnect.

Companies like Walmart and McDonald's earn billions in profits off cheap labor, while the U.S. tax payers assist their employees with various forms of welfare.

Regardless of what economic arguments you hear, this isn't right.

A Blue Texas would mean higher minimum wages.
