The news that people in service positions in the fast food industry may get a raise to $15/hr is a great development. Inflation and cost of living creates unique barriers to living when income is not a true living income. Those in service positions who stood openly for the cause of a living income represent the grit of a humanity that affirms the willingness contribute to society with the opportunity to live life in a more complete way. A vision exists for STEM, arts, and collectivism in society. Realizing that involves the whole of society. A living income, regardless of economic system and individual level of participation, is a huge part of that effort.
