Why do entry level jobs, for students or individuals who have no experience, need a living wage? If they are living at home doesn't someone else cover living expenses. No starters jobs = no experience = no future good paying jobs. I cansee more self-serve kiosks being installed. If you want to help the entry level worker let the market figure out what is the correct wage for the skills coming to the job.
