    Respond to "the minimum wage is unconstitutional, government has no authority to dictate to a person or business what they must pay...." or go away.

    It doesn't matter whether it's Constitutional or not. I'm asking for your viewpoint regarding the subject, and it's plain you prefer not to express it...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

And the joke back in 79 when he said that (I was 18 at the time) was that Reagan was bringing back slavery. Now if you were around back then and remembered the speech and the subsequent jokes a different way; then please by all means share what your thoughts were from that time. Me, I was at Hill Air Force Base working for POTUS Bozo the Clown.
    Then you and those you joked with were among America's dimmest bulbs. No one viewed it that way at the time. And btw, wasn't your clip from the Carter-Reagan debate? That would have been 1980, not 1979.

    CaseWeb: 720.0 Urban League and the Youth Subminimum Wage

    CaseWeb: 720.0 Urban League and the Youth Subminimum Wage

    Abstract:
    In the spring of 1984, despite the economy's spectacular recovery from a severe recession, teenage unemployment remained a major problem: 19.4 percent of all teenagers and 44.8 percent of black youth, were jobless. At the urging of the Reagan administration, Congress once again began to consider a proposal to lower the minimum wage for teenagers, citing economists' arguments that the minimum wage hurt those whose skills were the most marginal. Previous proposals for a "youth subminimum wage" had failed in the face of opposition from labor and civil rights groups, but in 1984, the African-American community had begun to splinter over the subminimum wage, and as the issue gained visibility, the National Urban League felt pressed to take a stand.The case traces the history of the political and academic debate over the minimum wage and the proposed subminimum wage. It provides a vehicle for examining two alternative models of labor markets-one competitive, the other monopsonistic-and for analyzing their relative ability to explain empirical data concerning the effects of the minimum wage. The case also serves to highlight the role of labor unions.

    You're the one talking about imaginary jokes after an imaginary "79" remark. Try replying to the substance instead of dancing away.

    It does matter if it is constitutional, since the earlier poster said it was NOT constitutional. If you spent less time trolling and more time reading the thread, you would have seen my MANY posts where I said that a minimum wage law lowers the need for entitlement programs, and that I was for the reduction of entitlements.

    All you do is throw out personal attacks. Once you do that, all I do is quote them, report them, and ignore the rest of what you say. When you learn not to make personal attacks, perhaps you will get more responses from people. Until that time, I will continue to identify every one of your personal attacks and report them to the moderators.

    I'm addressing your posts, not those of others, and no, I don't care to review 400 posts to find yours. The question was as simple as I could make it, yet you would rather accuse one of trolling than directly addressing it, and I'm still waiting for you to do so. Would you like for me to post the question once again?
