Baraq could make everyone “middle class” with the stroke of a pen. What’s he waiting for?
I used to run Fast Food and always had to explain to my employees the reality of minimum wage increases, every time it would result in less people doing more work. When the employees finally realized that they actually lost on the wage increase because of lost hours and increased prices it made them quite unhappy.
That's the plan, Stan. The Joker man is putting America in the trash can.
That will take them beyond the cap line for qualifying for a lot of the government handouts they may be getting at their current wage. It will also jump them into a higher tax bracket that will erase the gain in wage if they don't have mortgage and insurance deductions to compensate.
It may be the faux news but at least there is a modicum of sanity there!!
Yes, it’s a no-brainer 8.43%
Yes, but we shouldn’t permanently tie it to cost of living increases 4.63%
No. It’s nice in theory but ends up hurting the economy 65.81%
Just let the states decide 21.12%
Sheesh, I’m worth at least $1,000 an hour. Maybe you’ll be happy at $500, but I’ll be miserable. And the world doesn’t want that, trust me.
It’s nice “in theory”?? WTF? What “theory” says this ever works? It’s snake oil and bunkum.
Increasing the minimum wage does nothing for the economy. It is just an alternate means to printing more money.
Obama is no better than any other liberal retard, if he can’t raise taxes, he will raise payrolls. Higher pay means higher tax rates. It’s all a liberal scheme to hoodwink people.
A wage increase is also an increase in living expense at the same rate.
