Life Isn't Pass or Fail

In school, we learn to pass or fail our courses. 

But, in real life, there is no pass or fail.  It's "pass or iterate".

You only fail if you give up.  If you don't succeed, then analyze, pivot and try again.

Minimum Wage

Regarding the minimum wage: Instead of fighting to change it every few years to an arbitrary amount, they should peg it to welfare. Have it automatically reset each year to something like "the rate where a single parent with 2 kids working 35 hours/week would not qualify for welfare." Because why should we subsidize companies where their workers have to collect welfare to make ends meet?
