The federal minimum wage is illegitimate. Where in the Constitution does it give the federal government the authority to tell me how much I have to pay someone?
They’re aiming too low.
Make it $25 an hour and everybody will be really well off.
Stroke of the pen / law of the land.
It does help union workers whose contracts are often tied to the minimum wage rate by giving them an increase.
So, the union members get an increase and the unskilled workers have a harder time finding any job at all thanks to these democrats.
The people these Democrats represent are not intelligent enough to understand that at a higher minimum wage they will not get hired.
A higher wage just sounds good.
Most of them don’t want to work at any wage.So it really doesn’t effect them anyway.
We’re going to be stacking our own burgers and wrapping our own burritos pretty soon. That’s cool ‘cause I’ll sneak in extra cheese.
What battle? If democrats have the votes, they WILL force it down the throats of the residents. Then, when their voter “base” squeal like little piggies that they have lost their jobs, the democrats can raise taxes to pay for all the little piggies to get government checks.
Add an increased minimum wage to the bill for Obamacare and more Americans hit the bricks.
