Apparently most Republicans what the increase, so do small business owners, according to a “report” Obama read.

“Well I work at Target, so it affects me directly,” said Brandon Baron, who is the junior Vice President of the NAACP at CCSU “(I hope they) get this bill passed and raise the minimum wage.”

In Connecticut, a Quinnipiac Poll released Tuesday showed that 71 percent of people polled support raising the state’s minimum wage. Gov. Dannel Malloy has been a supporter of that and has pushed to raise it.

In addition to Malloy, the president was expected to be joined by the governors of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Vermont.

Much easier than getting a second job, right Brandon?

Yeah, when I was solely supporting my wife and daughter with a 28K first year’s teacher salary, I got something called a “second job” Brandon.

Why bother with making it a measley $10 per hour? Why not $100? Or better yet, make it a million dollars an hour. Everyone will be a millionaire, they will all be “rich,” and 0bama can soak the greedy rich people in bring in tons of new revenue.

There would be a great deal of entertainment value in that, and a real chance the democrats would lose a chunk of their base (low information voters).

Minimum Wage Control is essential to Soetoro-Obama’s desire to control and then destroy what is left of a free market in America.

The more people Obama can put out of work and make dependent on Gubmint handouts the more people he thinks he can get to vote to keep the handouts coming.

The min wage is all about this. It will put millions out of work as companies automate and get rid of unskilled labor.

This is all a red herring distraction. All the blue states are free to set their minimum wage at whatever they want.

If they just got aggressive and reminded the public about that the GOP could shutdown this BS real quick.

I’m in the Horticulture Industry and was reading one of my trade magazines the other day which compared salaries/hourlies across the board for our industry.

EVERY job, from stock person and greenhouse workers and up starts at WELL above the current minimum wage (averaged) here in the Midwest.

This is another jobs killer. We’re going to be limping through the hectic spring season, understaffed and p*ssin’ off the customers left and right.

We’re already suffering under 0bamacare.

Life kinda sucks right now, but at least I’m paying those that DESERVE it, a decent starting wage with room for advancement.

I’m pretty sure Brandon’s getting paid exactly what he’s worth. If he spent a little less time NAACPEEING he might be able to learn a trade. As it appears he’s just polishing his grifter apple.

Brandon, when you get laid off or get you hours cut, let me know how that $10.10/hr works out for you. Ok?

Most LIVs will still vote for RATs, even after being laid off from their jobs because they “know” that “Republicans only stand for rich people”.

I was thinking more along the lines of Harry Reid killing a bill raising the minimum wage to $30, and the LIVs taking it out on the democrats for depriving them of living large. Your statement is true in any event, sadly.

I doubt the LIVs would blame the RATs even for that! They would blame whomever the media told them was responsible. And we know who that would be.

WFSB is the TV equivalent of the Courant. They report every liberal talking point, and if anyone dares to point that out or discuss the other side in the comments, they delete it.
