Re: Obama says hes raising minumum wage to 9.00/hr. i think that is a great fuckin idea!
Raising the minimum wage means businesses will have to let all the low skill jobs go and turn those duties over to the skilled workers. Everyone loses. It will mean now low skill workers, and the skilled workers have to work harder to take up the slack. It has already happened in many fields. Where I work, the low skilled workers now hold about half as many jobs as they used to. Employers just can't afford to pay low skill workers that much. The "evil employers" still have to make money. Very few could afford to lose money for very long. Raising the minimum wage blocks most young people from the work place.

Many employers will counter with something. They can require employees to pay an additional 10% for their medical insurance. Perhaps cut everyone to part time hours. Some who are barely making it will close up shop.

the true fact is there should be no mim wage period ,why does someone have to pay a door greeter the same wage ,you would a check out cashier ,are stocker
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 146770


Thinking about it now, that is true. There should be no minimum wage.

Let the employer decide who is worth what. It doesn't mean the person has to work for them. An employer could start someone out at 7 bucks and hour and if they don't like them they can get rid of them without much cost to the employer. But if they do like them they could give them a raise to 9, 10, 11 etc bucks if they wanted to keep the person.

Nine dollars an hour will just mean that a teen or someone with no experience will not be getting a job at all. Or there will be no raises unless the person is stellar. Or one person will now be doing the work of two or more. It is a bad deal which will cause more unemployment and raise prices.

If you have no understanding of economics, like 99% of liberals, then I'm sure you think this is a great idea.

Those that understand economics know this means that less people will be working, less benefits, and additional costs on good and services.

Totally agree with this comment plus I would like to add that employers will not hire as many people since they have to pay them more. They will just shift the work to the other employees who will be more than earning that $9.00 an hour doing all that work.

Argentina freezes prices to break inflation spiral



[link to www.myfoxny.com]

.....Polls show Argentines worry most about inflation, which private economists estimate could reach 30 percent this year.......





It's comin'.
 Quoting: DeadBeacon





I think it will be different...
You only give points of views, I gave you numbers.
For example, let's see what happened when Argentina freezes prices the last 3 times:

1952 Peron freezes prices inflation goes from 38% in 1952 to 3,8% the next year. At the same time the GDP grow 5,4%


1973 Peron is president again and the country have 100% of inflation. Peron freezes prices again and the inflation goes to 30% in only one year.


2006 Nestor Kirchner freezes prices and the inflation goes from 20% to 9,8% in only one year.


So history says that you are wrong!


Them you talk that this will bring inflation over 30%.... We allready have 30% at least!!!

The real problem with Argentinean monetary system is that is infiltrated with too many dollars! And those dollars are in hands of the rich people...
Argentina has 2300 dollars per capita. Brazil (6th economy of the world) have less than 13 dollars per person...
The actual goverment it's trying to take out those dollars to control the inflation.
We have been growing since 2003. Things change here after 2001. For example this year was record in car sales and people going to vacations in and out the country.
But maybe you are right, your newspapper knows better... hehe!

Do you seriously think $9.00 an hour is alot? Have you ever tried to live on that wage? It's pitiful and still below the poverty line.

People are suffering! And the sad part is that even tho it's an improvement, it's not going to help all that much because it's still too low compared to the actual cost of living in this country.

I can't believe some of you americans deny others the right to a living wage, or in this case not even that. Mind blowing!

Try blaming the real issue of no jobs here, which is these fat cats corporate billionaires sending all our jobs overseas! That's the real problem, not the poor jerk making minimum wage and trying to honestly work for a living!

Re: Obama says hes raising minumum wage to 9.00/hr. i think that is a great fuckin idea!
Seems all the people without skills or education think this is their ticket out of poverty.

Your real ticket out of poverty is mentioned above, education and/or job skills to back up a good attendance record and good attitude towards work and other employees.

People will pay a good employee well because they are hard to find, shitty $9/hr employees are everywhere

9 bucks an hour and guess what, they are still in poverty. aslong as we are at it why not make 10 dollars, 20, 30 an hour? i mean why stop at 9?

Yea great idea 9 dollars an hour to some asshole who flips a burger or some idiot teenager who can't count back the correct change.

Sorry but these minimum wage jobs are for people just starting out or people who are too dumb to realize they need to do something about there life. Why should a business owner have to pay someone with no skills a higher wage to do a job that is not meant for someone with the ability to make something better of themselves. How did that person earn it?

Do you seriously think $9.00 an hour is alot? Have you ever tried to live on that wage? It's pitiful and still below the poverty line.

People are suffering! And the sad part is that even tho it's an improvement, it's not going to help all that much because it's still too low compared to the actual cost of living in this country.

I can't believe some of you americans deny others the right to a living wage, or in this case not even that. Mind blowing!

Try blaming the real issue of no jobs here, which is these fat cats corporate billionaires sending all our jobs overseas! That's the real problem, not the poor jerk making minimum wage and trying to honestly work for a living!

No wonder so many turn to crime to pay the bills cause this is ridiculous and other americans don't even stand behind their own. Really makes me sick.
 Quoting: Lisa*Lisa

Why should you deserve the what is a living wage? being young & suffering should make you strive to want more and work harder, not expect more free shit. but young people are not being hired because of minimum wage laws so they are not getting the funds & experience they need
 Quoting: Saxon F Waxon, Esq.


A "wage" isn't free, it's money paid for work done. Not all minimum wage jobs are all teenagers, and I'd be willing to bet that most aren't teenagers.

Am I the only person that sees this? It's like nazi germany mentality.......point the finger at your own and attack them instead of identifying the real problem.

The real problem is that they sent our jobs overseas! Now everyone is fighting for the little jobs left here and yelling about the poor making too much money, even tho it's still under the poverty line!

And all those .gov mandated regulations, it's no wonder most people are struggling.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33298613


The best way to get a "livable wage" is to start your own business.

But the politicians have piled so many regulations to create barriers to entry and preserve the status quo for the giant conglomerates.

Try to start up a lemonade stand. Within an hour the police, health inspectors, and zoning code enforcement will have you shut down and fined. A huge percentage of restaurants that start up...fail.

There are no more mom and pop ANYTHING and this is why.

We already have McDonald's, barber shops, and eye care centers inside Wal-Mart. Pretty soon we'll all rent cots inside a Wal-Mart.
