 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32851975



Hmm.. That is part time High school students entering the job market. Min wage was not intended for families to live off of. Unless there is no other work.

My Dad was a Journeyman wireman. He made 35.00 an hour back in late 60s early 70s. He had a stroke so I do not know from there. However , it was not uncommon for his take home pay to be 1000 or more per week.

So 16.00 ... ok.
 Quoting: NightWisp


right min wage was never for entire families to live off, and in reality most making it are in fact not supporting families. it's a liberal communist lie.

SIGH, alright so are you guys saying the only reason raising the minimum wage is bad is because employers can't afford to pay an extra 50$ a week per employee? and or the economy can't support the extra 50$ per week?

If both of these are not the cases then a minimum wage increase is good, no?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34344705



OUR UNEMPLOYMENT IS HALF YOURS.

ALSO, OUR 'PROBLEM' IS YOU GET UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS INDEFINATELY. THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVER WORKED IN THEIR LIFE. we get $310 aud per week, $60 of which is rent assistance.

lots of migrants go on it indefinately, so it fucks our numbers up.

all in all, we shit all over the US..

You ship the jobs overseas because you CAN. And "you" don't do it...the 1% does it. I'm guessing you are not the 1%, so why are you trying to protect them? The people making $9 an hour don't cause inflation, the 1%, the bankers, and the suits manipulating the stock market cause inflation. Deter corporations from taking their jobs overseas by taking away the tax breaks if they do. Take away their gov't subsidies if they do. Bring the jobs home.



You people are crazy. Businesses make money when people spend it. People don't have money to spend at those businesses when the minimum wage is so low. I don't know how even more of the US population isn't in poverty with the wages you have there.

Raise the minimum wage to $12, and force the corporations who have been outsourcing their jobs more and more over the last decade to bring them back home, instead of cashing in on low wages in India and China. You don't wonder why corporate salaries and profits have skyrocketed while minimum wage has stayed the same?

You put all the blame on Obama, but the real blame lies with politicians long before who created insanely high corporate tax breaks, subsidies for already profitable corporations, and made it easier to send these jobs abroad so CEO's can make even more money off the backs of slave labourers.

Wake up! For people who are supposedly so concerned about Communism and Socialism taking over your country, you sure seem to be ok with doing business with the commies.

Useless gesture to gain....what? Re-election points? There is no economic benefit by raising minimum wage, except for the amount of taxes that can be taken. Obama claims it will help lift people out of poverty. Raise minimum wage to 17.00 an hour, and you MIGHT start to scratch the surface.
I think this move is more to cripple than to help.

[link to www.raisetheminimumwage.com]

"Two decades of rigorous economic research have found that raising the minimum wage does not result in job loss. While the simplistic theoretical model of supply and demand suggests that raising wages reduces jobs, the way the labor market functions in the real world is more complex. Researchers have examined the scores of minimum wage increases that have occurred at the state and federal level and found that these raises have not cut jobs or slowed job growth."
