It's impossible to live on the current minimum wage ($7.25 an hour) — it's an insult to those who work the jobs that lay the foundation of the country. If we want society to be functional, we have to make sure that all people make enough to survive.
Minimum wage jobs pay the minimum because they require little to no formal training. It’s important that people who get more training get paid more — it incentivizes working effort and innovation in the American economy.
