We need a $15 minimum wage so that no one is paid a poverty wage.”

What happened to the days when McDonald's was a job for a 16-year old kid to learn a work ethic while earning weed money?

That's what it was for me in 1984.

40 hours a day?

that would equal 10,400 hours a year if this person only worked 5 days a week. At ten bucks and hour that person would gross $104,000 per year.

Math was not this speakers strong point.

She should at least be able to compute $10 per hour, 40 hours per week for 50 weeks. 10 X 40 X 50 = $20,000. Perhaps she was allowed to use a calculator starting in first grade and thus has no common sense about numbers. People like this vote on laws that can send us to jail if not followed. Yikes!

As soon as they get the $15 minimum wage they will reestablish a new poverty line. Then the call will be for $20, rinse, wash, repeat.
