really, I don't do that when I buy 100 dollar pair of shoes online instead of 500 pair locally? You have no idea how human interaction works.

It's not human interaction. Corp's. don't care. If they're forced, by regulation, to bring it home to the US, with the worlds HIGHEST corp. tax, then they will pass those costs on to you and me.

"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."

Have those "researchers" ever had to meet a fucking payroll or sign anyone's paycheck? Or do they all just sit around the faculty lounge and cherry pick data that they think proves what they already believe?

There should be a maximum salary along with a minimum salary much higher than a pathetic 9/hr. 9/hr should be what you pencil pushing corporate monekys should be threading up your asses.

40 x 7.50 which is the current min wage is 300 bucks a week before taxes

due to obamacare and employers using part time, most will see 30 hour weeks

30 x 9 is 270 before taxes

taxes went up too this year and will go up again very soon.
you are right op what a great fucking idea, little guy being screwed over as usual.

depends on which state you live in for current min wage, federal min wage is 7.25. some states use a higher min wage, some lower and some for some reason dont have any min wage at all

That means more people to pay taxes. So when taxes are raised for the government in order to take and spend your hard earned money on more wars.

 Quoting: Terrebonne


actually this means less people to pay taxes. higher minimum wage always lowers employment rates.
