    Now lets take a look at your original statement.

    Hrm, since the cost of a burget was a smaller portion of a person's paycheck, this statement would be wrong.
    Actually, you only reaffirmed my statement since I said that the price of the hamburger cost roughly the same percentage as it did under the old minimum. You just happen to prove that the percentage was higher under the new minimum wage.

    However, if you have a calculations for those who would get laid off during a wage increase, I would be happy to factor it in.
    You know that's impossible to calculate with any accuracy.

    that's what I thought as well.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    Umm, would that be c?

    No. A standard of living must be maintained.

    If you want to improve the domestic job market to compete against foreign nations, then rules need to be applied to American corporations, or tariffs need to be applied to foreign goods.

    Right. If you're not good enough to make the minimum wage then you should not be an employee. Better you become homeless and starve than at least earn enough money for food and gain experience for advancement later in life.

    Tarriffs? What an idea. Economics is so easy when you ignore the forgotten man (in this case the consumer).

    libertarians and conservatives should know that the public widely supports the min wage. Just sayin. You can blither on and on about it all you like but your not going to gain any fans in the general public to support the elimination of the min wage. Basically you are just showing your cards. By all means attack the min wage. At least people will start to understand what you stand for.

    umm the elimination of the min wage is a standard held within libertarianism .. another anti regulatory argument that the free market knows best.

    You said that the general public would be against the removal of minimum wage. I asked for you to provide a source, so pony up a source.
