    If your business isn't sound and is relying on paying ****ty wages perhaps you shouldn't be in business.

    The same number that went out of business due to minimum wage, virtually none.

    I thought this thread was about drug testing.


    Isn't there, like, TWO thread in the general political section, right now, about minimum wage? Just gotta spill it all over the place, don't ya?

    We have been discussing drug testing welfare recipients and branched out to other related subjects. What would you like to add to the drug testing discussion?

    In theory. While the employer's portion is an overall part of your "salary" package, it would be naive to think you'd see a dollar-for-dollar increase if the employer suddenly didn't have that expense anymore.

    Now, that would be a great idea for people who have jobs.

    Yes, we pay less for welfare, more people have money to consume, which in turn creates demand, which means additional jobs for more people to get off welfare.

    Sounds horrible doesn't it?

    Remove the laws that criminalize the consumption of various substances. Problem solved.
