    So there goes the conservative assertion, “better your skills if you don’t want minimum wages”.

    I told you guys that the wave was coming.


    Happier and more responsible employees with better wages; who'd a thunk ti?
    No one was ever objecting to employers voluntarily raising wages. This however has nothing whatsoever to do with the Minimum Wage.

    There is a big difference between one employer raising the wages, vs a law requiring all employers raise wages.
    For the Ikea employees, the raise move them ahead of the curve, so the extra money retains the value.

    And, as they have stated, it attracts a more qualified, dedicated workforce. Just as wages have always done.

    They may be able to afford different things if they had better paying jobs and if manufactured products were being made at fair labor costs.

    then they should do the things people do to make more money. Relying on the Government to do it for them...not the best way to go.
    Of course-that lack of drive and intitiative is why they are dependent on the Gov't. in the first place.

    Being lazy is the only reason people rely on the government or hit hard times? You may want to leave your little hole occasionally and check out the real world.

    Sure it does. IKEA people were making minimum wage, and the company jumped on the smart train and gave them a raise in effort to improve the company.

    So, companies cannot improve: hmmmm

    Yes, that's exactly what I said.

    Oh wait, no it isn't.
