Point one percent economic growth last Quarter. Now people in Congress who think that Arithmetic can be defeated want to engender a round of inflation.
We are so screwed.
Quod scripsi, scripsi
I don't think this issue will help them in November. I think gun control is a better issue to talk about since 90% of americans support it and the republicans are opposed to any sane gun regulation. Either way they are toast because of the obamacare.
bears, bulls, white sox fan 4 life!!!
It might get them votes, but not mine. Nor will it get them votes from anybody who's even slightly economically literate.
Louisiana has no minimum wage laws, and has an much lower unemplyoment rate than the national average. Nevada on the other hand has has a higher than federal mininmum wage rate and their unemplyoemnt rate is one of the worst in the country.
So, it's just possible that there is more involved than just minimum wage, and it's very likely that if WA did not have as high a minimum wage that it has, the unemployment rate in WA could be even lower then currently.

Social security has been stepped on with raises like 1.1% and the military vets get next to nothing for their sacrifices yet the lottery playing crack head sum that is too lazy to get an education and or to better them selves want more money for achieving nothing.........nothing. "GIVE" us more money as opposed to help us get that high school diploma or trade school diploma. The bill is crushed by Americans and the fact is this joke was never going to pass because the fed. has stated it would cause millions of jobs to simply disappear. So now the dem liars will get up on their podiums and shout how evil republicans are and how dems are for the people. What the hell, it got Obama elected!!
Navy Times, the edict from the White House that government contractors adhere to the new minimum wage rules that Obama wants passed nationwide led to the announcement that up to 5,700 fast food jobs on military bases would be lost as chains announced closures.
I think Obama screwed up here. By taking his preferred royal edict route to getting what he wants he has simply given everyone a window in to how his plan will effect those making minimum wage.
Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.
