    When minimum wage is raised, the prices for goods and services rise. This often results in minimum wage getting a raise but anyone already making above minimum wage does not, thus actually reducing the value of the wage that is paid. All raises in minimum wage hurt non MW workers and those on fixed income. A hike in MW causes inflation of costs to adjust, thus MW workers, though earning more, end up in the same economic position while others are dragged down as their wages devaluate.

    If you want less poverty I want to see your threads supporting the house bill for california water relief, the senate O&C timber bill, comprehensive infrastructure programs and the keystone pipeline. Raising minimum wage raises no one out of poverty, I live in the state with the highest MW in the country. The problem is lack of blue collar employment. And unfortunately the urban wing of the Democratic Party will not allow that to happen

    We all don't get raises when minimum wage goes up? (sarcasm)

    That translates into me making less overall as minimum wages go up. I have to expect the retailers to up their prices to cover the increase.
