I did not go into significant school debt for a degree that pays less than an employee at Mcdonalds. What would have been the point? That basically tells me I went into debt for nothing. I am drowning in school debt for NOTHING! Raising the minimum wage that much will only cause job loss, more automation and higher job competition. Which like in my industry means more unpaid 'internships' and less paid jobs with high competition. You can't make a living working for free.
