    Wow, you guys still believe that 47% number, don't you?

    Feel free to post some evidence of how everyone gets hurt.

    So you don't understand basic economics? I'll note that for future reference.

    I would vote for that. I like to be paid large sums of money. It usually makes me smile.

    Let me ask you a question.

    If 75% of people agree to it, does it means its right or true? What if an increase in minimum wage means that certain companies who don't value a current employee at that amount find someone else more qualified? The big problem with these type of policies is that we often ignore the adverse effects. It sounds good, as if everyone will get an increase but really, companies don't do things that aren't profitable, and by creating minimum wage, they won't hire people who aren't worth it. Instead of creating and adjusting policy to fight the profit incentive, why not create policy that encourages it?

    Its a sad commentary on just how extreme the far right has become.

    I oppose minimum wage laws on principle. I would never forbid two other people from making whatever employment arrangements they wish. That's their business, not mine, and I have not moral right to interfere.

    The 47% of Americans who "pay no [federal] income taxes" includes retired seniors and deployed combat troops. Go ahead, call them leeches on society. I'll wait.

    I understand that the real world is more complicated than that Econ 101 class you may or may not have taken. The real world requires evidence.
