Skip to comments.Quinn: A $10/hour minimum wage is a principle as old as the Bible

Despite his clumsy expression, Im going to go ahead and venture that, yes, most Republicans would probably agree with Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn that a person that works a solid forty hours per week at an honest, productive job should not have to live in poverty. Thats precisely why it would be nice if hiking the minimum wage was actually a constructive way to boost employment, median incomes, and economic growth, instead of an counterproductive and intellectually cheap populist band-aid.

Depends if that person has any skills and/or education.
We wouldn’t want to overpay someone and hurt their self esteem.
Also, if these bastards would quit causing inflation then it wouldn’t be so expensive to live.
All jobs should pay an above average income.
$10/hr is $28,000 a year. Poverty level for one person is $11,490.
Perhaps they should get some education or develop a skill to improve their value.
here’s a hint for the moron sector supporting this bs
if you jack up minimum wage by 50%, you’re also jacking up union wages by 50% (they know this)... but it will also push inflation to increase costs on those various goods
value is value... and when you’re using a fiat currency, it fluctuates with the amount you print.
meanwhile, one ounce of gold will still buy one week of food and shelter for a family of four in a first world country. this hasn’t changed for a *very* long time.
$10/hr is $20,800 a year.
10 x 40 x 52.
I made over $30,000 1 year at $9.50 per hour. Yeah it was a lot of hours but I didn’t feel mistreated in any way.
Quinn also won his first term by the skin of his teeth and he's the most unpopular Governor in the country. The guy is simply an effing, pathetic joke.
The minimum wage is totally contrary to God’s Revealed Word and is a direct assault on liberty. Thank the evil Frances Perkins, playmate of Franklin Diablo Roosevelt, for this vile attack on freedom. She not only championed the minimum wage but was behind Marxist scams such as social security and the power yielded to Big Labor goons. Largely relegated to a minor historical figure, Perkins is in the ranks of Margaret Sanger and Michele Obama as truly satanic women.
dylsexia again strikes
Where is that to be found?
$10/hr x 2080 hrs = 20,800/yr
Not everyone earning a minimum wage can afford a new car, the latest smart phone or a 72 inch TV. Sorry.
My first job out of the air force was $11.50 an hour and I worked all the overtime I could get. I’ve worked and studied and now I own my own business. So I’m back to about $11.50 an hour. lol
yeah yeah yeah, I typoed it in my rush to prove my numerical superiority
“We wouldnt want to overpay someone and hurt their self esteem.”
There’s one statement that Donald Trump once said that is correct. “You are poor because of the poor decisions you made in your life”.
If those bastards didn’t tax us to death, our spouses wouldn’t have to work so we can make ends meet and a stay-at-home Mom or Dad would raise the kids, not some government school and government after school program.
That does it...I’m moving to Lake Wobegon.
