The employees too. A business will hire less workers and expect the remaining workers to do twice as much work.

You stand there, all righteous about defending the very people that are ****ing up this country in several ways while bitching about the other people who are being allowed to **** up the country in even more ways namely because of said people you defend.


So what you left out of your smart ass comment, and I don't blame you because it ruins your argument, is that I said if you don't want to pay people then don't bitch when things like the food stamp lines, unemployment lines and minimum wage all go up and on your $.

But it's okay, now you're paying for it while the rich guy with all the tax loopholes laughs at you from his jet.
So if you're a "slave" at $7.25, are you middle class finally at $15? Cause that's only $30k a year, gross. How are people going to afford their iphones and $150 cable bills?

More or less, that's the point. The consumer will pay which means they can afford less, so will buy less and less people will be employed. Thus my not liking this shit at all.

But then again, if the private sector doesn't police itself then the government will get involved and **** it all up.

If I was an employer I'd think the positive would be that I could now probably hire someone able to articulate a complete sentence and start getting rid of all the high school dropout neck-tatted scrubs.

Minimum wage employers are limited by the available talent pool.

Its not the rich kids or the college graduates applying for the checkout line at McDonalds or Wal Mart.

Government is grappling with increasing income disparity. Wealth is becoming increasingly concentrated into the hands of fewer and fewer people, and the economic "recovery" of the last five or so years has really just been for the benefit of the wealthy, with the middle and lower classes getting squeezed.

But they don't know how to try to reduce income disparity. This is one way of trying, though I'm skeptical that it will be particularly successful.

if your making $7.25 an hr and not happy about it then do something it about it

work harder take some extra time with the boss and let him know what your trying to get too.
Work your ass off for lees money to show your employer that you can run the show and he can stay home. Eventually you will get what your looking for if you work at it and have a plan.

To many ****ing people work eight and hit the gate but wonder why others always get promoted or find better jobs, its because they want a better life and don't expect the GOV or business to just hand out ****ing money.

but if you think im going to pay you $15 hr to flip ****ing hambugers because that's all you ****ing know or want to learn then **** you

stop blaming the ****ing business owner, become your own business owner and get off your ass and work hard even if its for less pay at first you will get where you need to be.

This ****ing shit of people that want something for nothing can go **** yourself, no one is holding you back but your god dam self
FYP

I did not make the 6 ****ing kids you have to feed and clothe , don't give me that I am always shit on because im poor and I cant do anything else all excuses if you want a better life then work for it"""""

Seattle is already at $9.32/hour which in PPP terms is the 5th HIGHEST in the world. Hell, our Federal minimum wage of 7.25 is 10th highest. $15/hour will be BY FAR the highest min wage in the world.
