    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.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    price floors and price ceilings tend to produce powerful unintended consequences irregardless of the particular good involved. including labor.

    I support a minimum wage but that's about it. There should be no limit to how far a dedicated person should be able to go. I also feel that if you're older than a teenager and you're making minimum wage, the problem is with you, not the system.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Minimum Wage amounts to $15,080 in a 52 week year. The Federal Poverty Level for one person is $10,890 for all States other than Alaska, and Hawaii which are slightly higher.

    It is very difficult live on Minimum Wage in most States, I would like to see it Raised to $8.00 an hour, in the hope that people can manage to get by on it.

    Apathetic on the issue.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Unemployment Level Since Democrats raised the Minimum Wage


    Surely a minimum wage of $50.00/hr would solve all problems........

    Its not difficult but impossible in most states to live on minimum wage if your paying your own bills and rent.....if there were no minimum wage law there would be alot more people making less than that....I for one do not trust employers to do anything less than pay the least they can....
