When I got my first job in 1977 the minimum wage then was equivalent to a little over $10 in today's economy. While housing, transportation, and all other basic living expenses have grown wages have not kept up, the federal minimum wage now being $7.25 while tipped employees minimum is $2.13. Florida has been better than federal for some time with minimum wage being $8.65 which just increased to $10 and set to increase by $1 each year until 2026. Minimum for tipped employees here is now $6.98.

Tipping here is for excellent service, and even then voluntary (though some places are pushing it a bit more). I don't understand the US tipping culture. I wholeheartedly believe that prices should factor service into them (and tax, for that matter).

Minimum wage here is $20.33 (~$15 USD) (edit: along with 10 paid sick days per year and 4 weeks annual leave) and casual employees get a 25% loading.

I completely agree that wages haven't kept pace with prices. Even though my wage has gone up I easily earn less now than 5 or 10 years ago.

The U.S. is working hard at returning to feudalism and the people who are enabling it are the ones most harmed by it. They'll cut their own throats in the name of "patriotism" unaware that what they think of as patriotism is really nationalism which always becomes murderous and suicidal.
