It is Obama and liberalism that is trying to make this more like China by destroying the private sector and when that happens, wages will be every bit like China. It is the free market that keeps wages up, not Obama and the govt

You say people have to support themselves and their families are being paid minimum wage and I say whose fault is that? I would start with the government for making it just about impossible for most under the age of 18 to get any kind of a job other than running a cash register. So gaining skills by the age of 18 has been blocked by the government. Then who is controlling education? That's right, the same stupid ass government that wants to pretend that every kid wants/needs/should be prepared to go to college. What a waste of time and taxpayer money for most kids. So what do we get? We usually get a unprepared, unskilled, unexperienced kid who has done nothing but waste time at a government school. Then the government wants to tell an employer how much he has to pay somebody that fits that mold? His proven on the job worth is zero. It will be months and months before the employer can recoup his investment and that's if'y.. If the minimum wage keeps going up, less people get hired which of course means less people can develop their skills and earn higher wages at a later date.
    I think the increased rates in worker productivity should at least worth $10.00 per hour.I have read a study that makes a case for a minimum of $22 an hour today if it had kept up with productivity over the years. As Elizabeth Warren ask "wha happened to other $14.75? "Whose pocket did that dough go into?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    But the country you want is China. No regulations:China. Low wages without minimum wage or unions: China. This is the perfect government for you.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    As has been proven you have no idea who I am or what I want but judge everyone based upon your own ideology and beliefs. Unlike you I actually ran a business with actual employees and faced those regulations and taxes you say don't really matter. This is the best economy on the face of the earth that you and your ilk are trying to destroy

    What you ask for can be found in China. That's what you get when government runs things. Here people fight for things. You just don't like workers having a voice. You want it like it is in China.
