Fair wages for all

In response to Deborah Lowrie’s letter “People Can Improve Their Own Futures” (Dec. 9), I would like to draw her attention to other facts of life. She may have had the intellectual capacities to go to college, but in the real world not everybody has these capacities. Does it mean that people with more limited intellectual capacities, but working hard, should be denied a living wage?

Not every fast-food worker is a student. Maybe in Ms. Lowrie’s world only people with a college degree should have children?

We live in the richest country on Earth; would it not be moral and just that every working person would receive a living wage? It is not entitlement; it is fairness and decency.
