We love maps at suburban-poverty.com. And we have a soft spot for minimum wage workers. Then on top of that we know our way around a turkey dinner, even if we eat ours early – on Canadian Thanksgiving – which was, like, weeks ago. Anyway, the map with this article shows you how much toil a minimum wage earner has to take on to produce a turkey dinner by state. Six to seven hours. Probably not far off what you’d have to do for the same meal in Canada.
