"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. [Ö]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
for your consideratoin:
the study link is from About MinimumWage.com | MinimumWage.com
and is a project of the Employment Policies Institute (EPI).
Rick Berman created EPI in 1991 to "argue the importance of minimum wage jobs for the poor and uneducated."
EPI has has been widely quoted in news stories regarding minimum wage issues, and although a few of those stories have correctly described it as a "think tank financed by business," most stories fail to provide any identification that would enable readers to identify the vested interests behind its pronouncements. Instead, it is usually described exactly the way it describes itself, as a "non-profit research organization dedicated to studying public policy issues surrounding employment growth" that "focuses on issues that affect entry-level employment." In reality, EPI's mission is to keep the minimum wage low so Berman's clients can continue to pay their workers as little as possible.
EPI also owns the internet domain names to MinimumWage.com and LivingWage.com, a website that attempts to portray the idea of a living wage for workers as some kind of insidious conspiracy. "Living wage activists want nothing less than a national livingwage," it warns (as though there is something wrong with paying employees enough that they can afford to eat and pay rent).

How dense do you have to be to keep pretending that there isn't a serious shortage of work for young people to do, and even less that will pay enough to live?

Companies do not exist primarily to provide jobs and benefits to people, they are profit driven. So if an employee produces less than they take they are a drag on the company. On a related note, the proposal applies to GOVERNMENT employees, meaning they are paid from tax revenue, not based on production. Government is not concerned with balancing the books, they don't have to since they do not operate out of their own pockets. What this really is is another stab at the private sector that will lead to the argument to increase welfare roles (workers got an X% increase, welfare recipients should too in the name of equality) and widen the gap between workers and welfare leeches. This is more wealth redistribution pure and simple.
8 College Degrees with the Worst Return on Investment - Salary.com
If you are getting a soft degree then you are going to have a hard time finding a job much less the pay for that job.
soft degree's are social science, theology, etc ...
if you are getting a hard degree. hard science (chemistry, biology etc ...) computer related, math, engineering etc .. then you have a wide variety of job openings
and are in high demand.
my friends brother learned this the hard way. he got his degree in religious studies. he basically had to go back to school and he became a medical technician. now he is doing that at the University of miami hospital in their neuro surgery department.
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/31/ed...-cut.html?_r=0Half my law class cannot find work as lawyers. And this is even after working unpaid internships for "experience" all through law school.
the law profession has been in decline for some time. A good friend of mine is a lawyer and i mentioned to him one day that i thought about going to law school. he said don't
there isn't any work. he was like unless you own your own pratice (which he did) he said you won't get a job). 10 years ago it was a good thing. now not so much.
i have moved from WV to PA to FL. sometimes moving is a requirement. A friend of mine said he would never leave WV he live in utah now.And, of course, moving isn't a hugely expensive proposition or a risky gamble at all. A whole lot of recent college graduates had to move back in with their families... because they can't afford to live anywhere else.
the reason is that productivity has to exceed cost. companies are very much into job experience. they want people with job related experience even if it is just a year or two.How dense do you have to be to keep pretending that there isn't a serious shortage of work for young people to do, and even less that will pay enough to live?
The less real training that they have to do the better off the company is. the constant upward pressure on the floor hasn't helped.
it also hasn't helped that people that were suppose to retire delayed retirement due to economic conditions.
what we also have to look at is what degree's these students are graduating with.
