In America, Head of a Household of 4 Earning Minimum Wage > Earning 60k

This chart really explains it, better then I can hope to articulate. 

Hat Tip to ZeroHedge. An excellent write up as well. 

Please note the disparity of the worker earning the bottom level on the chart, essentially working one week a month at minimum wage is earning 92% of the level of the 60k a year individual, who is presumably working full time. 

Even this seasoned blogger is incredulous.
