According to a recent study, 24% of Americans make less than $8.50 an hour. What, in your opinion, are the causes of this?

Why just one cause?

The Poll doesn't allow for "all of the above", so I didn't vote.

A good look at the survey from which the figures came would be helpful (the poll question itself may be misleading).
