    Pay them for what? With what money? On what moral basis do you come up with such nonsense?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Pay them for full-time work that employers need for their business. They would be paid the same way all minimum wage workers have been paid during the decades that minimum wage has been in existence. In my locality, a living wage would be about $1.00 an hour more than current minimum wage.

    The moral basis is its better for a man's or woman's body and spirit to work for a living than forced to be dependent on taxpayer supported welfare to survive.

    Living Wages are great on paper, make people feel good and all, but economically they are a disaster. When employers are forced to pay more for an employee then the employee's work justifies...

    And people wonder jobs keep going out of country.

    You did it, you took the bait that derails the thread.

    You have shown no evidence that a slightly higher amount to make minimum wage a living wage would be a disaster. Can you provide historical statistics that show that our productivity declined each time there was an increase in minimum wage?

    The reason companies are moving jobs overseas is because they receive tax cuts rather than penalties for doing so.

    Do you think it is reasonable that the middle class should agree to decline their status to living in poverty so that we can give even bigger tax cuts to the rich who's income has increased?

    I'm sticking to the topic.
    You've been the one who continuously goes off on rants about stuff that doesn't have anything to do with the thread.
    Followed by, as always, something about 30 years of supply side economics, Republicans being ****ty or something generally related to those two things.

    It's annoying, partisan stinkery and it really constitutes as spam.

    I have only responded to issues or questions related to the thread. How much is this measure supposed to save taxpayers?
