    I would definitely vote for a $10 minimum wage, probably higher....but I don't think I would vote for $20. At that point, a couple with no skills is making $80k, considerably above the the average wage in this country.

    I'm sure this won't be a popular view on this site - I've seen more than a few people call for higher numbers - but while I agree that the minimum wage should be high enough for people to actually, y'know, live on, I don't think flipping burgers is something that on its own is supposed to take care of a family of four.
