Forget minimum wages, just make a law that the top guy in the company can't make more than 10x what the bottom earner makes.

maximum wage earning is needed.

The simple fix.
 Quoting: DERP


The simple fix is to get rid of the stock market with companies trying to provide the share holders with their 5% plus increase in profits. Bring back the mom and pop business on main street and get the banks out of derivatives and back to lending to small business. Banks should not be too big to fail, there should be many banks for competition.

Where are all the haters now? Yow wanna enjoy hating the victim some more or do you want to create a real solution.

America needs a minimum wage of $10.00 an hour just to be able to survive and that is with benefits.

Without benefits the minimum wage should be at least $11.50 per hour.

either way you are going to pay.

pay a minimum wage to workers

 Quoting: DERP


We should start with all the pro-ball players then after the actors.

And your guys are all fools if you think raising minimum wage will fix things.

Let me explain - is the base level pay goes up so does the cost of all base level products so this is a viscious circle.

Part of the problem with the economy is because of stupid people.


1. If you borrow money (a loan) it comes with risk - you have to pay if even if you don't have a job, that low interest ARM is just that "Adjustable".

2. Talent pays more, flipping burgers is not a talent. Flipping burger jobs are for all the highschool and college students needing money - not having to live off of it. There are plenty of youth to work, many think that they don't need to work until they are in their mid 20's.

3. Welfare adds to the debt. When the debt gets high enough it will end as the dollar faces hyperinflation.

The problem is damn stupid people thinking Obama is gonna baby them and wipe their ass.

Just make it more expensive for companies to move their jobs overseas. So much more that it would be cheaper to bring those jobs back to the USA.

This would instantly create more jobs. The more jobs created would increase the demand (and wages) for USA workers.

a true capitalistic economy would have no minimum wage at all

the free market would dictate the going rate for skilled and unskilled labor

where we went wrong was allowing the USA to stray from it's hardcore founding principles

USA was not founded on the idea of dictating a wage or taxing it for that matter

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24622449


Actually it was. At least one of those elements can act as a confounding variable and lead one to arrive at an incorrect conclusion due the presence of multi-collinearity amongst the variables. Several explanatory variables need only tend in the same manner as one another for the relationship to be established with the response variable in order for one to arrive at the fallacious conclusion. Should one control for the possibility of such an outcome, he or she would have to acknowledge the presence of confounders within the analysis, thereby decreasing the inductive probability of committing the classic cum hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy.

Those demanding a min wage increase are economic illiterates.

What happens when you do that is the businesses then need to raise their prices to cover their increased labor costs. This wipes out the wage rise.

And it's not just min wages that go up - the whole wage scale shifts higher to accomodate the increase on the bottom end. So the price increases reflect this entire shift and will render any wage increase moot because of higher prices.

Dumbasses.

Based on the 1960 Dollar and the minimum wage in those days $10' will not do it. It would take $17.50 and hour to equal the purchasing power of $1.75 then.
