    That is a bit more accurate, 30 M people under employed that is a big problem.

    Which is why a higher minimum wage is a good thing.
    A higher minimum wage will just be inflated away and all you'll do is reduce the spending power of everyone else.

    There is no evidence to support that stance. Every time minimum wage was raised above inflation employment numbers increased and government spending on welfare decreased.

    You really don't understand business do you? Seems you believe that business is in place to provide you with whatever income you desire to meet whatever life style you want. Then you expect the Federal Govt. to set a wage for a private business owner who has all the investment, all the expenses, all the taxes, and all the regulations while getting paid last.

    You obviously ignored what is happening in Seattle as the Forbes article points out. Please explain to me why a one size fits all program works in this country today and why this is a federal responsibility when the states and local communities can do what Seattle did?

    You obviously ignored the misattribution of the issues in Seattle.

    You obviously ignored the main issue, the city of Seattle did it without federal approval and other states can do it as well with their voters approval. This isn't a federal one size fits all issue but liberals are too bullheaded and indoctrinated to admit it.
