 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34255546


So is this a flat rate regardless of age and etc?

If so, screw that. Is shit like china cheap or something? How the heck do people survive on that @ 40 hrs a week?

Re: Minimum wage now $9 an hour!!!!
I was in management when the wage in AZ was raised to $7.25 an hour. We just cut hours like a sonofabitch to make up the difference.

In these corporate fast food joints, every cent is tracked. Food costs can be controlled to a point but nothing can be controlled like labor can.

They will cut labor hours before they pass the cost along to the customers.

Don't forget they have share holders to keep happy and must show an increasing profit year over year.

Re: Minimum wage now $9 an hour!!!!
I think its a smart idea. Obama also wants the minimum wage to go up along with cost of living. This will help keep the cost of living down because companies won't want to pay their minimum wage employees more money.

Its about time that these damn companies start paying, even if it is only $9.00/hr.

How anyone can live on $7.25/hr now is crazy. Then you have the big CEO's giving themselves big raises and thousands of dollars bonuses.

I would raise minimum wage to $15. These CEO's are part of whats driving the middle class down into poverty.

Re: Minimum wage now $9 an hour!!!!
I work at a place where they pay their employees only 9 dollars an hour which in oregon is only 5 cents above minimum wage...talk about a fucking slap in the face. 12hr shifts too...pay of course depends on shift and it's varies because of the 12hrs and we get 10 for grave, ect but it's slave labor people. Some idiots are bitching about the minimum wage increasing if that's a bad thing? like the poor save do not desereve it? For real people...? Money does actually grow on trees for those who don't think that is does. It's printed on paper last time I checked fucking iditos lol Of course you have precious jems, metals, gold ect,ect,ect-different forms of currency but "our" monetary system as well as many others too is based on debt and the printing of money until it's completely taken over by computers and then of course it'll all be digitalized in a computer chip based system. Raising the minimum wage is just a way to keep up with inflation lol the cost of living, ect,ect,ect Nothing is really changing haha same ol same ol...you still going to be a slave tmrw as you were yesterday until the day you die...so what's the point getting worked up about things you can't even change anyway. you are powerless...get over it.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29091096


Why do you "deserve" a 15% government mandated raise? All it will do is increase the price of everything for everyone else. Its just another way to take from those that actually did something with their lives and give to the losers ie Obama voters. If you're an adult making minimum wage, you made some very bad choices in life. Deal with it.

As much as I support free market concepts it seems naive to me to consider that the heads of most major industries DON'T meet and decide the going rates they offer and agree to for their own mutual profit amongst one another.

That said it's NOT the Executive branches place to have a say in this matter. The laws the people agree to (via congress)*1 are quite clear in what a minimum wage is.

Re: Minimum wage now $9 an hour!!!!
i work part time in a convenience store. i was the highest paid employee at..you guessed it, 9.00 an hour. my coworker, who is more part time than i am makes 8.00 an hour.

my boss is already struggling to make payroll - very small business; he, his wife and five employees
if he has to raise everyone up to 9.00 an hour, he will be broke. people don't spend money like they used to and after they buy gas, they don't feel like coming in and spending more on our overpriced beer and snack food.

i'm not even hoping for a raise...i'll be glad if i'm still employed. he's only gonna keep one cashier if he stays open.

The cost of living will go up BECAUSE of this increase. Do you use a special drug to be this stupid, or did you just sleep through Econ 101?

Think about it: all this does is bring the middle class that much closer to the minimum wage level. You gain nothing on the lower end because people making minimum wage will always be poor and prices will go up accordingly. Your "plan" simply destroys more of the middle class.

I don't know how it is where you live, but in Phoenix and surrounding areas, teens have been shuffled out of the fast food game for a long time now.

All I ever see there are adults.

Attitudes have changed in the industry. If you are going to be paying someone a man's wage, you want a full grown adult, capable of adult work. You definitely don't want a kid that is going to need all kinds of time off or having to go home early on school nights.

Youth unemployment is high at around 15% for those ages 16-24. I would hate to see what the 16-18 year old unemployment rate is.
