I have learned recently that minimum wages are different in EVERY State !
The minimum wage in Massachusetts is now $11 per hour .
It used to be a few dollars less , But still !
I have looked at minimum wages all over The U.S and noticed that least in Massachusetts you cannot live on $11 per hour !
And then I noticed a correlation even though a coincidence, But still a correlation with employers and their requirements saying that you will be paid more if you show your Highschool Diploma.
This is interesting! You get payed more if you have a high school diploma.
But if that isThe case , Then people who work at fast restaurants like McDonald's and other have a high school diploma !
But then why do they earn minimum wage ?!
I know that there are many high school students during summer break work at fast foid restaurants.
But PLEASE ! Not every employee is a high school student !
Many of them are between 20-40 years old .
This does not make sense ! ( Maybe I am missing something ) .
How can employers keep nagging in that job field about GED or high school diplomas and say that they do not want to pay you less than legally allowed and at The same time pay minimum wage ?!
If anybody has an explanation, I will give you an opportunity :)
