Re: Minimum wage now $9 an hour!!!!
So let me get this straight. To create jobs in a weak economy, the government is going to force businesses to pay more to employees on top of other benefits. This is the job creation strategy?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33624919


The reasoning is employers will save money by opting out of insurance under Obama care and pay a fine/tax amounting to less than what they would pay to carry employee's insurance, so they will be able to afford to pay them more.

Is he trying to run us out of business!!! If you raise one side the other would even out with it!!! The money comes from the people that buy the product and the price just rose by $1 cause of the minimum wage raise!! He does not get it!!

[link to www.businessweek.com]
 Quoting: 4D Viewer


Raising minimum wage just means there are more people making minimum wage. All the people who were making $9 an hour when minimum wage was less than $9 an hour are still making minimum wage now so that just means more people are making minimum.

If minimum wage was $6 an hour and it went up to $9 an hour and everyone, not just the people making the original $6 an hour, got a $3 an hour raise (from $9 to $12 for example) then raising minimum might makes sense. They don't do that though. When minimum wage is raised there are just more people now making minimum wage.

Actually it never makes sense to raise minimum wage since that is the base that all prices are set on. When minimum wage rises all prices rise with it so that means that people who make minimum wage are making a little more per hour but the raise is eaten up by the rising costs so nothing has changed for them. Lots has changed for everyone else though since they did not get a raise, they are now closer to minimum and they have less buying power than they did before.

Re: Minimum wage now $9 an hour!!!!
In the US, are wages based on age, apprenticeship level and etc or is it a flat rate across the board?

Here in Aus it's $15.96 per hour but is dependent on age and etc as follows:

For junior employees, the minimum rates are:
Under 16 years of age $5.87
At 16 years of age $7.55
At 17 years of age $9.22
At 18 years of age $10.90
At 19 years of age $13.17
At 20 years of age $15.59.

For apprentices, the rates are:
Year 1 of apprenticeship $10.22
Year 2 of apprenticeship $12.08
Year 3 of apprenticeship $14.87
Year 4 of apprenticeship $17.65.
