Desmond Hatchett just realized something. He cannot support his 30 kids on his minimum wage job. He fathered 30 children with 11 different women. He’s had four children in a year on two separate occasions.
Now he’s asked a judge for some relief in his child support payments.
Half his salary is being divided among the 30 kids but what is half of minimum wage divided by 30? Tennessee does not have a state minimum wage, so the national minimum wage of $7.25 applies. Half of that divided by 30 is 12 cents an hour. So even if he worked a full time work week of 40 hours, it wouldn’t even amount to $5 a week!
He promised the courts he’d stop having kids three years ago when he had 21 kids. But he did not obey that promise.
