You guys don't get it!! It does not fix anything. If wage goes up that may result in jobloss, shorter shifts, and rise in prices of good."for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction"
 Quoting: 4D Viewer


No, what happens is business owners get used to a certain standard of living and aren't willing to take a loss. So they look for other ways to keep their prohit levels the same. Like, increasing prices. Cutting hours, benifits, employees.

Always the same $47t%$.


Make sure to give a true and accurate account of all earnings business owners. I know how you guys like to withold income from ever making it to your business accounts. You know what I'm talking about. Be sure to inform your accountants....

Re: Minimum wage now $9 an hour!!!!
I'm in high school making minimum wage ($7.25) in PA. Don't know how I feel about this yet...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10106605


No need to feel anything about it unless your employer decides he needs to cut back on a few employees and make the ones who are left do more in order to maintain the same cost structure.

If that happens though then you are screwed because many will raise prices to cover the increased costs so you will be unemployed with higher living costs.

Other than that...you should feel pretty good.

It isn't a matter of "wishing poverty upon others" or "supporting human slavery" to be opposed to counter-intuitive, economy-hurting, and opportunity-depriving things like the minimum wage.

If you're upset about people wanting to abolish the minimum wage altogether, come up with a winning argument for keeping it (warning: good luck - there isn't one), rather than just making outlandish straw-man attacks against positions that nobody is making other than (in the abstract) yourself.

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.

The great thing is that the guy who started at $7.25 and worked hard and got twenty-five cent raises and worked harder and got more twenty-five cent raises until he is making $9.00 per hour will suddenly find his ass right back at minimum wage with every slacker.

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.

GET SAVED: Thread: Are you SAVED from DAMNATION?

"For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another." -- Galatians 5:14-26

This increase is meant to offset the reduction in work hours from 40 to 29 a week that most companies - including the State of Virginia recently announced so they can avoid the nObamacare mandate for insurance through the company.

This is like Europe has been for a long time - like 2 months paid vacation time per year. No wonder they are broke.

And if we think we are broke now - just wait until this goes in to effect..
