    Would love to see that point count and what is important to you

(See chart 1.) Nearly 5.8 million workers were paid at hourly rates, representing 55.7 percent of all Texas wage and salary workers.1. Regional Commissioner Stanley W. Suchman noted that the number of Texans paid at or below the Federal minimum wage increased as the number of workers earning the exact Federal minimum wage rose, while the number of Texans paid below the minimum wage declined. Combined, these workers accounted for 9.5 percent of all hourly-paid workers in Texas.2. (See chart 2 and table 1.)

    Minimum Wage Workers in Texas - 2010


    Now he seeks to change the parameters of the BLS report because he doesn't like the results.


    9.5% eh....Doesn't that mean that some 90.5% are paid above the federal minimum? The things not addressed in that short paragraph you cited are some questions in my mind...For example...

    How many of those minimum wage jobs are held by teens?

    How many that fall below the federal minimum are employed by farms employing illegal aliens?

    What is the median salary in the state? and How does that rank?

    How many new jobs came to the state in the past two years?

    You seem to leave a lot of information out when it comes to molding your narrative.

    I continue to remain on point, Perry has an increase in his poll numbers because he has a net job gain in TX, net labor force gain, a lower unemployment rate than the national rate, has a growing population as businesses are relocating to TX, and balanced a two year budget without raising taxes.

    Doubt that education would even be a problem if we had more union representation in this state's education system. Being a right to work state drives liberals crazy

    Actually, that's not on point. We were discussing budget deficit and the effect of losing $4 billion from the school budget. You couldn't support your claims, so you went Squirrel!!!!

    But if you want to admit you were wrong, and move back to this topic we can. As noted earlier, much of those jobss are low wage for immigrant wrkers (those immigrants you blame for everything wrong). Your state has low rankings on health care and education, and your governor is big on Corporate welfare, spending your tax dollars to help coporations who really don't need the help. It has also been shown Texas has resources and other issues that cannot be duplicated by anyother state. you need to look closer at something, as numbers do not and never can speak for themselves. Perry is just using this false impression to make a presidental run.
