Things aren't bad enough, now. The left really does want another Great Depression.

Yes they do, look what they got from the last one. They almost brought socialism here then, they would probably be able to get a lot more next/this time.

You’re right.
Why wait for a crisis to exploit when you can manufacture them.

Awesome, they should label it “The Chinese Employment Act”.

I think 50 dollars an hour would be right. Watch their skin crawl when gas is 39 dollars a gallon and Mcnuggets are ramped up to 24 dollars.

Liberals are the dumbest folks ever, courtesy of our public education system.

This is actually a tax hike on the poor

By raising the minimum wage to that amount many more people would pay income tax. However since the cost of goods woiuld simply inflate to cover the cost of the extra money in the system it would just mean that most people paid taxes.

It would also inflate away the value of the USD dollars held by governments out side the US

I was saying they should make it $100 an hour and everyone will be in the top tax bracket.

:p

Obama’s call for a higher minimum wage as a “far cry from what workers really deserve

I deserve to be a gazillionaire, alas, I'm still striving to be a hundredaire.

Why not raise it to a minimum of a million dollars a year? That way we would all be millionaires and nobody would be poor!

The lover of lies.

Ariana refused to share the proceeds of the sale or offer any wage to her site creators.

But to solve that they would demand the govt. enforce price controls on businesses. Result? They couldn’t afford to stay in business and have to fire their employees and close their doors.

I wonder how THAT sits with them. They probably think they are getting screwed over by Republicans/s;)

Good idea.

Forcing companies to pay that will mean no employer will hire illegal aliens.
It will put 11 million Americans back to work.

Why doesn’t little Georgie Soros the Pervert pitch in the difference for everyone making minimum wage? Little Rich Georgie has more money than anyone else on the planet.
