    That is your opinion, how do you know what the expenses are of that minimum wage worker? Living below the reported poverty level doesn't mean one is living in poverty but I don't expect people who have no problem spending someone else's money to understand that.

    Wow, it only took you three responses to me to create a complete self contradiction, nearly worth adding to some of your more memorable quote below.

    Guess another subject you know nothing about is profit demand. Not surprising but that doesn't stop you from spending someone else's money. Are your over 16 kids living at home making minimum wage living in poverty?

There is a reason Obama has such a low JAR and it the reality of his economy, stagnant economic growth, massive govt. dependence, low job creation, discouraged workers, high debt thus high debt service, more regulations, wealth redistribution. Obama is a disaster so let's be honest for a change.


    You're right. The GW Bush (the First torturor) Great Depression caused by GW Bush lies and wars and Repukelicans/Dumbocrats stupidity continues. Vote any third Party. It can't get any worse.

    However, there are 174,000 more over-55 year olds working.

    Table A-9. Selected employment indicators
    I think that all sucks.

    ...are a very small part of MW workers, aka not typical.

    Funny how you keep saying that others know nothing about MW workers....while you keep missing the mark. And again, the quote you originally responded to had little to do with MW...but then context is a concept totally foreign to your posts.

    Yeah, it can, look at how successful third party elected officials have been at the state and local levels. First step is term limits for Federal Politicians.

    That is your opinion. Don't you think you should find out how many are in that category, how many are first time job owners, how long they make minimum wage instead of broad brushing everything like you do. Still waiting for why you think it is right for you or anyone else demand that a private business pay their workers a certain wage? It isn't your money you are spending on those employees

Young people coming out of school these days think they can demand 6 figure salaries as an entitlement of breathing, with a nice condo and a BMW and lots of vacations and nice clothes, etc. etc. It's all about expectations in life and yours seem a little high.
    My math spidey senses are tingling. If you make 20 bucks an hour and work 50 hours a week, you make 1000 before taxes. If you get two weeks of paid time off, you are looking at banking $52,000 a year. Where did $200,000 come from? If they are making 52K, which anyone leaving college with a bachelors degree would be pumped about, I hope they aren't living in NYC, Boston, DC or CT. Taxes will kill you. I am not saying they can't live and have some nice things, because they can...but 52K is a far far far way from 200k.

    Last time I checked no one held a gun to anyone's head to stay in a job that wasn't rewarding them for their worth or maybe, just maybe they are being rewarded for what they are worth. You seem to have found the answer, start your own business with the incredible education and experience you have.
