    1:47 San Francisco adjusts every year for inflation and as of January 1st
    2015, the minimum wage is $11.05/hour; exactly where Nader says the federal
    minimum wage should be if it had been adjusted for inflation since 1968.

    You’re better off living in poverty – just crunch the numbers.
