The Public Cost of Poverty Wages

This cost is to the USA taxpayer but I suspect very much  that the problem is still the same over here across the pond. Lots of companies are "successful" but depend upon the tax payer to subsidise their poverty wages. They also don't pay tax on their profits but that is another (but very important) issue.

Next time you have a Big Mac think that you are not only paying good money to buy this burger but your taxes are also going to subsidise this very rich and profitable company and its payment of poverty wages to its staff. Something very wrong here I think?
