    Eliminating the minimum wage would create jobs and create more labor competition.

    By your logic, why not just throw child labor in there while you're at it?

    What's that have to do with my logic? Minimum wage and the jobs they are attached to are for unskilled and entry positions. create more of them and more people have the ability to compete for higher wages. With more jobs available, and less people scrambling to get them, companies would be forced to offer higher wages to attract workers rather than locking them to the minimum wage for years.

    Right... better to eliminate minimum wage so that companies can exploit our own people instead of going overseas like they usually do. If this is the method to lure the manufacturing sector back, then it's not worth it. We should be regulating the companies more in that case, not paying our people pennies.

    Those in favour of this idea don't seem to understand what cost of living means. Great, so you'll have a job at $3/hr, and after working for 12 hours you can maybe by some groceries to last for two days. What about the rest of your bills? It doesn't matter how many jobs you get, you can't fit enough work in 1 week to cover expenses because the cost of living is not going to decrease in line with minimum wage being tossed out.

    I don't see how making the poor and unqualified working class slaves is the answer to jobs being outsourced. The proper thing to do is place controls on business itself, not the individual.

    I understand what cost of living is, but you do not understand that minimum wage is necessary due to inflation from a fiat currency. Explain to us why for 124 years, the period between 1789 to 1913, that wages and prices were stable? People were able to live just fine and move up from a low social status to a higher one.

    Manufacturing and information technology jobs are shipped overseas because companies are unable to make a profit under current US and state government regulations of wages and other areas. It's cheaper for the company to go overseas to a country that the people have smaller wages then it is to have the jobs perform domestically. Why is this?
