    No, it would cause a disruption all the way up the chain. For example, what happens to the guy earning $14.95? Does he get a nickel raise, leaving him on par with the entry level hamburger flipper despite his skill and experience? Is that how liberals define 'fairness?' Or is that guy making $14.95 gonna expect a raise on par with the rise in the minimum, taking him to $21.95? And if every employer basically has to give every employee a $7 per hour raise, what will that do to employment and prices?

    Ok. Would you like to explain how not? Because, last time I said the exact same point (in which you just quoted) you just said it was gonna cause some sort of huge damage against the US economy, then refused to give anything to back up such statements.....

    its what those who want others to pay for their desires always use as justification

    "Education" purports to teach communications skills. Proper diction - to include grammar and spelling, as well as word choice -is a very important component of that. The fact that you obviously didn't proof-read your post (and your communicative statement, by extension) does reflect on your education.

    Take a look at world rankings based off educational standards and rankings, then take a look at the ones that guarantee free public university
    Who wrote the rankings?

    That wasn't explained and it definitely wasn't the objective of that ridiculous attempt to push another left wing " inequality " false narrative.

    Obama and Buffet both new who their target Demographic was.

    Low information Obama supporters who actually believed his Secretary paid more in taxes.

    yea they don't think about those consequences.

    more than likely that guy making 14.95 will make 15.00 and that will be it.

    Ahhh yes. Grammar on the internet, the true test of public education!
