Minimum For What?

In a store, I noticed a poster stating the federal minimum wage, $5.15 per hour. The California minimum wage is $6.75 per hour. I ran some quick figures in my head. Assuming a 40 hour work week, that works out to be about $1000 per month, pre tax. Given the cost of living here in the Bay Area, I wonder how anyone could survive on that.
