Linda, San Francisco:
I think living wage was the word you used. The minimum wage nowhere near reaches what the livable wage is. Here in San Francisco, as we all know, it is so expensive. So I think $25 and up for inflation would be about right. Two comments: people who are just making it, when they get money, they spend it in the community and it helps the whole community. And when people are super rich they don’t seem to know what to do with their money. Instead they park it, as we’ve seen, in downtown towers or luxury condominiums that are empty. Rich people park their money there because they just don’t know what to do with it. I think it would be a much better investment not to give them tax breaks and charge them for all the houses they have. Then give a real living wage to people who work so hard. Thanks.
