Mandatory Living Wage
The Mandatory living wage is designed to help American Citizens take care of themselves, with little to no government intervention or welfare services. It will assure that a financially responsible adult can take care of themselves and their families. The Living Wage will be a pivotal pillar of our overall welfare reform. This wage will reduce the number of citizens who use welfare services. The Mandatory Living wage shows a significant dedication to securing the middle-class structure of America and reducing the number of citizens classified as low income and impoverished.
- Each state will determine a living wage based on a 40-hour work week. This wage is independent of the state or federal minimum wage. It is to be determined by the average cost of housing, necessity utilities, insurance requirements, and required commodities to maintain a stable household. This wage will be determined every 2 years by each state.
- Employees will be eligible to receive the hourly living wage if they meet standard concrete guidelines:
- Any employee that has worked at a company a minimum of 42 months, and over the age of 21.
- Any employee that has worked at a company a minimum of 36 months and has 2 or more dependents living in the home, and is over the age of 21.
