    And to many people, a large percentage of a population of a state making barely enough money to live off of is a big deal. People can try to claim all they want that all those jobs are held by teens or illegals, but shouldn't those still be pretty even throughout the states? Why wouldn't there be a pretty equal percentage of low wage jobs available, no matter the state?

    how much did you pay your employees? Amazing revisionist history, most minimum wage workers are 16-24, others are second wage earners thus the number isn't anywhere near the problem you seem to believe. This just goes to show now really naive you are.

    Disney is comparing TX to California and claiming that Perry is a disaster because 5% of working Texans are being paid minimum wage. That is typical liberal spin and diversion from reality. TX is a lot like California except for the cost of living. TX has a 20% increase in population and a growing labor force with a net job gain, 8.4% unemployment whereas California has a 9% population growth and 12% unemployment. People are moving to TX from California to get away from that bastion of liberalism which is really the issue at the national level. Do liberals have a clue? Apparently not

    The cost of living in TX is much lower than California and those believing minimum wage here haven't a clue as to the cost of living of the state. That is nothing more than a strawman to try to destroy Perry. It won't work, Fortune 500 companies don't pay minimum wage nor does the Medical profession which is huge in this state.

    Yes, it is 2011 -- you really are on your toes today. The numbers cover the time period between 2008 and 2011 -- same as Obama's. Perry has created NEGATIVE private sector jobs ... but a lot of gobmint jobs!

    Better tell that to the Bureau of Labor Statistics because BLS disagrees. You shouldn''t have any problem proving your statement if you are right. By the way, in case you didn't know I won't be voting for Obama in 2012. Looks like it will be Romney or Perry, either one beats the alternative although I do feel sorry for those how want the nanny state.

    More lies and distortion from you Con. The facts are the facts. Tx has the highest percentage of minimum wage and below minimum wage jobs in the country....not just more than California. More than Idaho, Wyoming, Michigan, Florida, Az, Nevada....even more than Mississippi, Alabama, Kentucky, Tennessee.

    Couple that with the fact that Perry loves to talk about job growth, but all of that job growth is in GOVERNMENT jobs. Private sector jobs have declined by 5% in the last two years in Texas. So if all of these private sector jobs are coming to Tx from California.......then there must be more than an equal amount leaving Texas for greener pastures as well....which is surprising since Texas also gives the most welfare handouts to corporations than any other state in the union.

    Perry's record doesn't look very good when the record is actually examined.

    Re: Rasmussen: Rick Perry now up 11 points on GOP field

    Here are the official numbers since 2001 the state has increased Govt. jobs from 1.565 million to 1.77 or 205,000. Total employment went from 9.5 million to 10.6 million or 1.2 million which makes govt. employment about 18% with a 20% increase in population.

    Guess I just don't see that decrease in private sector jobs you claim happened. Don't you ever get embarrassed by being wrong so often?
