    These mother****ers who work at McDonald's can never get my order correct now, and I always have to wait for fries, and they want more pay??? :

    I think they should LOWER the McDonald's minumum wage.

    No very well grounded in reality I think you are missing the point. When Obama came into office he was handed a bill a 12 trillion dollars. Yet you want to heap all the blame on him. When 3 Republican presidents spent about 10 trillion of it. Top that off with a bunch of people that had no term limits with money getting stuffed into their pockets it creates a bad situation. This was not Obama fault, frankly if you clould not see this happening in the mid 80's you are the one living in fantasy land. At some point the bills have to be paid. The problem with a majority of people by the time they woke up the damage was done. Now if you want to beat your drum that Obama caused all this who is the one not living in reality??? I plainly stated that about racked up 5 trillion but was handed a debt of 12 (which you failed to understand). Go ahead and keep your head under the sand and blame the next president, after all that is what you are doing now. You cannot stop this monster it was let out of the bag along time ago. Simple fact are the people to blame are the ones that voted in these guys in the first place. I have only voted in three election so honestly I take no part in what happened in the past. However, there are more than a few on this forum that moan and complain day after day yet they voted these heavy spending monster in. So it called blame those people! The first President that almost tripled the debt should have been enough but oh wait they let three other ones do right behind them. hypocrits

So subtract these openings from the total, because according to some people here those jobs are for lazy idiots and if you have one you fail at life. Call it 3.7 million maybe.

    There are 11.5 million unemployed people. And as the right-wingers love to point out, "real" unemployment is higher due to people who have stopped looking, and those who are "underemployed." (like many of these minimum wage workers you all seem to despise so much) Let's pretend you can fill every job opening instantly.

    So what is your magic free market bootstraps idea for those other 8 million (or more) people?
    Economic expansion due to increased demand would take care of the rest of them.

    Either way, we are still talking about a shrinking of the unemployment figure of 33%. That's not exactly peanuts.

    I'm 44 and have been in my career for 26 years. A little long in the tooth to be starting medical school. My gig is auto repair and I'm very good at it. In fact I just did some rebranding for my shop, my sign has a cartoon sick car on it with a doctor in a lab coat standing next to it, under that it says "The family doctor for your car". And I where hospital scrub shirts. Seriously. My wife is a medical lab tech.

    And where will these mythical high-paying jobs, that apparently everyone can have if they just work harder, come from?

    The horror.
    So are you supporting entry level low/no skill jobs should be a living wage?

    If the no skill/first ever job pay gets increased, should the first line supervisor job also be inceased? If not, are you not devaluing the worth of the more experienced worker?

    As the available pool of unemployed labor shrinks and AD rises, wages go up. That's econ 101.
