Instead of sitting around waiting for Uncle Sam to raise your wage. Why not get a better job? Sheesh... sitting around waiting for someone to take care of you is a silly way to live a life.

Since everything is related to the price of gasoline and diesel fuel, I think the minimum wage should increase every time the price of gasoline goes up.

I don't get it? I wasn't here in the 80's (I was born in 1996) did the cars or licence plates look like Mexican cars/licence plates?

My wage is fine, it's other people's wages I am concerned about, so I'm not sitting around at all.

Also, 'get a better job' is either impossible or unrealistic for many people. It's impossible for one person to transform a labour market.

They both had B.C. on them. British columbia and Baja California. The Baja plates said Front BC on them and up there I was thinking canada instead of British columbia. Not exact by any means, but plates can change from year to year and enough similarity to throw someone like me off. Not to mention the 70's and early 80's were kinda hazy.

Oh I see, makes sense haha. I would probably do the same thing if I didn't live in BC.
