$7.25 while minimum wage is $7.25
It doesn't matter. They are the same.

It sounds lovely world but you sound like a jerk. Very few people think this way. You do know that your fantasy will never be reality. Right?
I would prefer to make $7.25 while the minimum wage is $5.15 for two reasons.
1) Ego - I would prefer to not be making minimum wage.
2) If the minimum wage is $5.15 instead of about 40% higher at $7.25; that means that all goods that utilize minimum wage labor will be less expensive (to varying extents) due to lower operating costs. This will make things slightly cheaper, plus make American manufactured goods more competitive with similar foreign goods, thus decreasing the trade gap, thus meaning more Americans will be hired (vs. the $7.25/hr. mw), thus lowering the unemployment rate and so on. Additionally, since things will be cheaper to buy, my dollars will go farther then they would were the minimum wage $7.25.

Personally, I'd ask myself what kind of a loser I am making $7.25 an hour. I haven't made that little in decades. That's pathetic.
