I was just thinking about all the kids who just got out of high school and the other people who never made it past high school getting raises to $15 per hour. I guess that’s nice for them. Are the state and federal government going to help me, too? What is the percentage jump on that?

On Social Security, if you get a cost of living raise, it may be as high as 2 percent and my retirement may get the same.

We are worried about people just starting out in life that haven’t even started college making sure they are making $15 an hour.

What about me? Am I one of the people who don’t count now because we’re not going to be around much longer? I guess it would be even worse if I was a vet, too.
