    Have you figured out where the money comes from to pay wages?

    How about doing some research and find out how many of the 148 million working Americans make minimum wage and how many of those are head of households before spouting liberal rhetoric?
    Washington's minimum wage is 9.47/hr currently.

    Roughly 4.7% are paid minimum wage (federally mandated).

    Also, yes I do care what a business in TX pays its workers, its called human empathy. I've been in their spot(s) in the MidWest and South and it is incredibly hard to make ends meet on minimum wage alone(this was before the internet era fyi), supporting anyone else.

    Its all a matter of cost of living, and the higher the cost of living the more the minimum wage should be. Yet federally mandated minimum wage is real, I don't know why you like to ignore that.

    It has nothing to do with empathy but rather more liberal social engineering. You have no idea who these people are and what their monthly expenses are or their cost of living but you assume which is what liberals always do.

    Point, your state doesn't pay minimum wage and every other state can do what your state did so why does the Federal Govt. have to get involved. Let the people of the state that pays the bills decide

    never have ignored the fact that there is a federal minimum wage, the question is why? What does a bureaucrat in D.C. know about the cost of living in say TX? If a state can do it why shouldn't they have total responsibility for that wage?

    Not sure where you come up with these gem's. Raising the minimum wage will make commodities more expensive that lower income families buy. It won't affect cars or houses, it will affect agricultural products, jast food and clothing. It would make entry level employment more restricted anti would continue the trend to push business offshore, all to raise the payoff what should be temporary jobs. It's a terrible idea and I hope it doesn't happen.

    Sorry, I don't see that being the case. When minimum wage does't keep up with inflation you end up with what we have now a large percentage of people are the working poor. Where they have full time or part time jobs, but they cannot make ends meet with said job, therefore require government assistance. This does not need to be the case and if the minimum wage was federally mandated to keep up with inflation (like other countries) people wouldn't need as much government assistance unless a disaster struck their financials, which is how it should be.

    Why don't you look to see how much it really would raise prices according to The Motley Fool.

    Economically you can't uncouple wages and production. It's unsustainable.

    You really don't seem to have a problem spending someone else's money on issues you don't truly understand. You judge everyone else by your own standards not realizing that not everyone else has your cost of living. You and liberalism go well together, all knowing, all caring, and yet never solving any social problem with all those good intentions.
