Life on minimum wage is no bowl of cherries

After reading multiple letters in The Sun from people decrying the possible raising of the minimum wage, I can't help but wonder if anyone who disagrees with such an increase is living (subsisting), or has recently lived, on the present and long-standing rate.

I rather doubt that any have done so, nor would any of them be willing to try it. One would quickly learn that "cherry-picked statistics" don't pay the rent and grocery bills.
