Although she’s philosophically wrong, I’ll give her one kudos.
Most in her situation are totally dependent on us taxpayers.

(Frequently wrong but rarely in doubt....)
I can only give her 1/3 credit. One third credit for working, but 1/3 against her for not having a stable home life with a husband and father of her kids, 1/3 against her for assuming that she is entitled to fabulous money to support her for life in what is supposed to be an entry level job.

(Communists never negotiate.)
It’s a sad testament to the current state of affairs that we feel doing the bare minimum in almost praiseworthy.
I am certain that somewhere along the way we taxpayers are “helping her out.”
$8.25/hr x 2000 hrs/year is $16,500.
With two kids she gets $5236 in Earned Income Tax Credit and $2025 in Additional Child Tax Credit.
If she has nothing withheld she will get a “refund” of $7261 (2012 figures).
She is also eligible for WIC, Food Stamps, Section 8 Housing, and who knows what else.

She went for a company, and agreed to the wages being offered. Now she is claiming that those wages are not enough? Work hard, improve your skills, make yourself more valuable to your employer. Don't demand higher wages out of some social principle. You want higher pay, ask for a raise. You don't get the raise, find a higher paying job. No higher paying job? Go to work for yourself. Then you can pay yourself whatever you want. If that don't work out, maybe you are just worth what they are paying you in the first place.
