    When I say benefits I mean things like pensions, sign on bonuses, bonuses, profit sharing and other things that an employee may get.




    About the only thing I support is minimum wage law.
    I voted for "Other."

    I support either a minimum wage or a maximum wage but not both.

    Really, though, minimum wages are easier to implement and enforce, so I think that is preferable.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I do not support a maximum wage as you shouldn't limit how much a person can make. However, when it comes to benefits, I think it should be dealt with on a case by case basis. For example, if you are in charge of a company and you worked hard and played by the rules and helped increase the wealth of your company and you get a big bonus, I have no problem with that. But if you put your company in the shi*ter and you get a golden parachute, I think that all the benefits should be taken away from you.

    I feel we should have a min as well as a max wage, this includes benefits.

    I don't see why we would have a maximum wage. Minimum wages are fine by me, but like Cephus said, if you are a grown ass adult you shouldn't be trying to live on a minimum wage job especially raising a family. Minimum wage jobs should be transitory in nature, not permanent placement.

    I have no problem with persons becoming very wealthy, however I do feel at some point wealth goes beyond a reasonable point and goes into absurd.
    For example I personally do not feel it is right for a person to have as much wealth as 200K people earn in a lifetime. No person has contributed that much to mankind. Multi billionaires have more wealth then can ever be used in any sort of reasonable fashion. So instead of a person having more then they can ever use why not let others have a chance at more.

    I am certainly suggesting that raising the minimum wage does not have the affect on unemployment that you are trying to suggest with you graph.

    Just because there is a "max salary" doesn't mean that other people are going to get paid more. Without a max salary, people get a chance at as much money as their effort/skills are worth. People that make money by taking risks by investing in business are just as important, if not more important to job creation than the government.
