Re "This Fight is McDavid and Goliath" (Forum, Aug. 31): There are three simple steps that will help young American workers earn a living wage. First, employers need to offer employees a consistent weekly work schedule. Do not schedule employees for 3 hours on Monday and and six hours on Tuesday. Give employees a schedule that allows them to find a second job. Second, Employers need to offer employees a consistent daily work schedule. It is insane to give employees an different schedule every day of the week. Again, this random scheduling denies workers the ability to find a second job. Finally, give employees a living wage. Earing $9.00 per hour, working 30 random hours per week is not enough for a living wage. It is clear to me that those people earning the least amount of money are getting screwed in more ways than one. -- Casey Vandenburg, Herald
