    the general public would be against removal of minimum wage...but of course the general public is made up of ****ing idiots.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    Eventually that goalpost is going to fall off the field.

It drives people out of jobs and depresses the wages of jobs that would otherwise be worth more than the minimum wage.

    If we want to help the working class in this country, we should working on keeping jobs here rather than driving them overseas.
    Labor isn't a good; it's a factor of production. Minimum wage gives the incentive for companies to outsource.

    We shouldn't be trying to keep those crappy jobs here. New, better job that are aided by technology, which makes the work easier and more efficient, are for what we should be striving. The way to accomplish that is by easing the tax burden and eliminating the hurdles entrepreneurs face and with which existing businesses deal.

    I'm pretty sure not many Americans would want to be manufacturing toasters or spoons. Americans need to learn two words: workforce fluidity.

    that's just not true...we will always need lower paying jobs for those who are unable to work at higher paying jobs.

    perhaps they should have chosen a field other than "liberal arts".

    don't blame me because you were stupid enough to waste time and tuition on that french literature degree.

    That is about support for an increase, but not about removal. You have no source for your statement.
