It's NOT livable wage for a reason! It's meant to get you started back when things used to cost less because of less government interference it actually worked. Minimum wage never was designed to be lived upon:
It was designed to be a starter pack to get you going somewhere else in life so you'd advance not be stuck there for god knows how long flipping burgers at McDonalds. When a country is largely depending on minimum wage to survive upon there is a VERY deep internal issue going on and the problem goes far beyond the wage and raising it will only make things worse in the long run.
Meanwhile we all keep pretending the elephant in the room isn't standing there with us.
