I have been working for minimum wage the last six months, despite transferring to a department that is supposed to pay more. I have a husband who is disabled and two young children who outgrow their clothes and shoes in twenty minutes. You can't do it on minimum wage. Even at forty hours a week, we barely have enough to cover our rent and utilities. Thankfully I start a much higher paying job next month. Living on minimum wage is almost impossible, especially if you have kids.
