    No and I think a good solution to get the people that would rather rely on welfare off of it is to gradually raise the wage every year starting with a big jump to $9 an hour and end with $12 an hour by 2016.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    I haven't heard them complaining. I hear people complaining on their behalf. These scum are called politicians. A burger flipper has no power to change minimum wage.

    Complaining is easier than doing.

    I had to tell an employee that the amount of money he made wasn't predicated on his ability to spend it. In truth it was dependent on his ability to make himself indispensable to the company.

    It's like they say 6 in one or half dozen in another. Force the government to pay the poor via social services or force small businesses to pay the poor via the minimum wage.

    It's all just a big show. Humans take care of other humans. We just do. Even these people who are pretending that they passionately hate poor people. They really don't. They would probably be willing to take money out of their own pocket if they ever seen someone who was genuinely hungry. They just pretend that they hate poor people.

    People in our country will continue to maintain survival regardless of the political winds. Sometimes harsh language has to be used to promote a specific political ideology. None of it really matters as much as it seems. When your political ideology isn't applied this doesn't lead to utter and complete destruction. It's just fun to feel that way for some reason.

    No and he didn't get a raise either. As I remember he wasn't worth what I was paying him when he asked. I had a manufacturing company by the way and everyone was well above minimum wage.

    Anyone who says that it is a lot of money is wrong. This isn't a subjective question.

    If you are asking whether the minimum wage should be raised, from the perspective of economics, I still say no.

    There are plenty of people complaining on their behalf. They're called liberals. Sorry, not impressed.
