    Oil boom, then bust, it’s history. Let’s look at the rest of the country where the minimum does NOT provide living wage.

    There are some jobs that just are not worth that much. You can’t stick with being a burger flipper for years, doing nothing to improve your lot, and then argue that because you were dumb enough to try and buy a house and have kids on a fry basket shaker’s wages others must now pay you far more than the job is worth. You want to make more money, get a different job, learn a useful skill. In other words, do something to improve yourself and make yourself more marketable.

    If you want a higher minimum wage, then look to the models that are around you.

    What is it that say Australia and New Zealand have done that has allowed them to have high (adult) minimum wage?

    Certainly not the only factor but one to note is their IMMIGRATION policies. You want to live there? Bring something to the table that is of benefit to the nation. Speak the language. How reserve funds so you are not a burden on the system. Have marketable skills that are currently in demand.

    Being an island nation it’s relatively easy to keep slackards and criminals at bay…….

    Actually it may be more due to the location. Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but much like Alaska, a lot of basic goods have to be imported in from quite a distance in that area
