Silly dipshits are going to be jobless soon. You don't know what the fuck you're talking about.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34296975


Oh yeah.

I've lived through many raises to the fed. min wage.. and I've never lost a job due to that. Stop living in fear and listing to TPTB.. think for yourself. research...

When I was born it was just above $3/hour... seems like we got through all the other raises just fine.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 21989454


Yeah, because NORMALLY pay raises are given when the economy is strong, not when it is struggling.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34238343




If that is the case why has it been frozen so long? Server pay of 2.13 an hour has been frozen for 20 years. If companies are making record profits why shouldn't the minimum wage be increased?

Re: Minimum wage now $9 an hour!!!!
I swear some people are dumber than a bag of bricks when it comes to economics.

If 3 workers bring in $250/hour - do you really think that after paying the 3 workers $25, that the owner pockets $225?

No - because out of that $250 comes:

Rent
Electricity
Food costs
Paper costs
Legal fees
Fuel Costs
Insurance - liability, Workers Comp
Employer portion of Social Security
Cleaning supplies
Office supplies
Pest control
Business License fees
Advertising
Credit Card fees
Franchise fees
and more...

After paying for these things, the average franchise owner sees about $14/hour. Hardly the "rich", right? Just middle class, as most are.

If you take a small business who hires 50 people, and they have to pay $2000 more per week they will have to either A) raise the cost of the product, B) lay off employees or C) shut their doors.

BIG CORPORATIONS can absorb these costs, but small businesses cannot. I am telling you know, this will be the final nail in the coffin for the economy and the end of small business.

You raise minimum wage when the economy is strong, not when it is on a lifeline.

Bunch of f****** idiots.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34238343


You're a fucking idiot. Back in high school when I worked at McDonald's the Franchise owner drove a 100k dollar Mercedes. So sorry if I don't believe your shit.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 3987337


IF someone has several franchises, they were wealthy to begin with, but MOST DON'T. You can believe it or not, I don't give a damn anymore. Go ahead and burn it all down, stick it to the small business owners - they are the ones that will struggle. You'll see soon enough.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34238343


I'm fucking sorry if I don't believe your shit. You are simply a liar. A greedy fucking liar.

You fuckers said this same shit last time the Minimum wage was raised and guess what. There are now even more fast food restaurants.

So again, sorry if I don't believe your shit.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 3987337


Minimum wage not livable (1.25)
Raise minimum wage
Minimum wage not livable (2.50)
Raise minimum wage
Minimum wage not livable (3.25)
Raise minimum wage
Minimum wage not livable (4.65)
Raise minimum wage
Minimum wage not livable (6.25)
Raise minimum wage
Minimum wage not livable (7.25)
Raise minimum wage

See a pattern?

I suggest we go straight to $1,000,000. If that turns out not to be a "livable wage"...which it won't....then we NEVER do it again and let the market set the price of labor.

I'm ready for that deal.

Re: Minimum wage now $9 an hour!!!!
People will have more money to spend, making businesses get busier, needing more workers, if they dont want to pay benefits, then more people find jobs, who pay more taxes. Then more insurance companies boom because the law required everyone have health insurance. People become healthier, and smarter. Most people (lower and middle class) benefits in a little way. The pay raise includes plenty to cover the extra taxes, in way costing the bigger companies more.. ie: the upper class, ie: republicans.

....additionally........

"... "tipped employees" are a class of employee for which the standard federal minimum wage does not apply.
Instead, employers must pay a tipped employee at least $2.13 / hour.
HOWEVER, the law also states that if an employee's wage plus that employee's tips do not equal at least the standard minimum wage ... the employer must make up the difference."

Re: Minimum wage now $9 an hour!!!!
You have to share the wealth to have successful economy people!!!!

If not then you have a greater gap between economic classes.

Extremely wealthy and high poverty w/ very little middle class. And that can be broken down into smaller communites as well as a larger scale.

They taught this concept in grade school for crying out loud. Do you remember?

To share your toys with your friends? You can't expect to have to many friends if you don't wish to share your toys.

Or do you really even care about the economy...? Be honest now.

Re: Minimum wage now $9 an hour!!!!
Hmm $7.50 an hour versus $9.00 that is about a 17% increase. How many minimum wage jobs are there in our economy, most at McDonalds, Wal Mart, Target, etc.

An employers cost is mostly labor. Corporations won't pay the increase the consumer will pay the increase as they will pass they pass the cost on.

I would say this will drive up prices for everything you need at least 10% once imposed on average.
