This just in on Channel 10’s The Project – Minimum wage is simply too low.
True or false? Probably true.
Their case study however, a security guard named Darcy who looked like he was in his 20’s. This bloke complained about earning $800 a week off $18 an hour, after a 40 hour week
He says he has to pull 50 -60 hours a week just to get by.
On the weeks he works 36-40 hours Darcy says he struggles to pay rent. Are you living at The Ritz?
$800 isn’t enough for one bloke with no dependants for one week?
Perhaps he forgot to mention a smashed avo addiction.
When the project ran the idea by him, that the government boost minimum wage he says…
“That could allow me to have one extra day off, and I could go see my parents.”
Sure Darcy. You’re going to see your parents when you get a day off work mate.
I call bull shit.
