How about a MAXIMUM wage?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 9645738


Excellent idea! But, it will never fly cause those rich people are the ones who make the rules.

The rest of us are pond scum.

But, not for long! Jesus is returning to dole out real justice and for once in His Kingdom everything will be fair!

If there were jobs available that paid a real wage, all those kids that get involved in street gangs to survive would have another way.

If you work hard, you should be paid a decent wage. Period!

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?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32328802


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.

Why do companies send jobs overseas? Because costs here are so high that it is cheaper to manufacture overseas and pay the shipping costs back than it is to manufacture here.

Why are costs so high? Regulation, taxation, labor costs.

Your solution is to raise labor costs even more. Brilliant.

Your other option is to go protectionist and not allow imports. That would force the jobs to come back but you can forget all the goodies you are able to buy cheaply at Wal-Mart. You'll be paying $3000 for computers and $3000 for televisions and your Christmas toys will probably triple in cost. Your shrimp and your catfish and your fruit and vegetables will skyrocket to cover the costs of paying Americans $9.00 an hour plus health benefits and high taxes. Your plastic garbage cans and furniture will cost way more than they do now. Your purchasing power will go down.

No matter how much you want it or how emotional you are about it...it does no good to try to manipulate the price point on the supply and demand curve. You'll just create a shortage or a surplus and screw things up for a lot of people and make it worse with unintended consequences.

Once again the middle class gets crapped on. Obviously the rich owners arent going to pick this bill up, they will cut hours, hire less people, and raise prices on goods and services. I can't blame most of them its their business they want paid. The easiest way to cut cost is cutting labor, its a simple idea and requires little effort on the part of owners. Unfortunetly workers will be expected to do double and triple the amount they should be doing and probably not see a penny raise for their efforts. Who will pick up the tab on this increase? Simple the middle class once again. We will be forced to buy goods at a higher price and that will take money out of our pockets that we cant afford to lose. I work my butt off and I'm an getting nowhere. The rebublicans are for the rich, the democrats are for the poor (and rich also), but nobody is for the middle class. The day the middle class dies is the day america dies, and I fear that day is fast approaching.

Does not. Think it through. My cousin fati owns four fast food drive through joints. She pays minimum wage. She doesn't pay jerks to sit about gossiping. She pays for exactly the labor hours she needs for every shift.

Do you think she's going to fire her fry cook and tell her customers cross aren't available and blame Obama? Or open at noon to avoid paying a breakfast crew? No. She will take a little less profit and give a little less charity and secretly feel better that her employees aren't so pathetically poor that she has to put guilt o$ferings in the zakat box when she thinks about it.

also businesses are going overseas, because once again that almighty government interferred and imposed outrageous regulations on private business making it almost impossible to do survive here. one other thing businesses are not charitble institutions either they are in business to make money. how EVIL.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34273328


The capitalist worldview will be clung to, even in it's death. This is because greed is human nature.

The minority who have the ability to invision the evolution of humanity are powerless to procure the results of their cause. Money is power in this country. Thus, capitalism has turned into a system from which motivations come from special interests contrary to YOUR interests. Asking the visionaries to invoke change is contrary to their skill set.

Wealth is obtained through underhanded tactics, having the ability to attractively decay a society, and enslaving others simply because they are carrying your weight below you on the pyramid.

Wealth becomes power thus those whom have it can enslave others to it. You believe you're the boss because you have the wealth, treating human beings as machines and disposable assets.

Hard work. Dedication. Honesty.

Do you return those morals to your employees? I doubt it.

I can see the anger in the capitalists as I bring this views to the table and my suspicions are through introspection they have realised someone is above them as well, doing the same thing as they do to us. Your longing to be above that is a desire that will never resolve in your lifetime. Enjoy rotting in this corrupt society.

Re: Obama says hes raising minumum wage to 9.00/hr. i think that is a great fuckin idea!
Once again the middle class gets crapped on. Obviously the rich owners arent going to pick this bill up, they will cut hours, hire less people, and raise prices on goods and services. I can't blame most of them its their business they want paid. The easiest way to cut cost is cutting labor, its a simple idea and requires little effort on the part of owners. Unfortunetly workers will be expected to do double and triple the amount they should be doing and probably not see a penny raise for their efforts. Who will pick up the tab on this increase? Simple the middle class once again. We will be forced to buy goods at a higher price and that will take money out of our pockets that we cant afford to lose. I work my butt off and I'm an getting nowhere. The rebublicans are for the rich, the democrats are for the poor (and rich also), but nobody is for the middle class. The day the middle class dies is the day america dies, and I fear that day is fast approaching.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34059504


Correction. The democrats EXPLOIT the poor for their own gain. Part of that exploitation is convincing the ill-informed that the "republicans" are for the rich", blah, blah, blah. True, that plenty in the GOP are worthless dorks.

The reason the middle class is getting squeezed is that it must support both the ever-expanding bureaucracy above and the ever-expanding entitlement class below, both of whom conspire against them.

Does not. Think it through. My cousin fati owns four fast food drive through joints. She pays minimum wage. She doesn't pay jerks to sit about gossiping. She pays for exactly the labor hours she needs for every shift.

Do you think she's going to fire her fry cook and tell her customers cross aren't available and blame Obama? Or open at noon to avoid paying a breakfast crew? No. She will take a little less profit and give a little less charity and secretly feel better that her employees aren't so pathetically poor that she has to put guilt o$ferings in the zakat box when she thinks about it.

Wont meant a thing other than less profit for CEOs... they might pass it to us or simply persist for more automation and robotics. They have a robotic system now that can cook and assemble hamburgers with all the fixings. I dont agree to this cause people need work, But its what might happen

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.
 Quoting: krosty


it's something called freedom... free to pay people whatever you want, you stupid dipshit loser.
 Quoting: Saxon F Waxon, Esq.


Then paying people nothing is freedom? Disparaging your employees of income to the point that they are unable to provide for themselves is freedom?

 Quoting: krosty


You must be aware of some really fucking hideous employer.

Who is it? Who is this beast who forces his employees to work at gunpoint for slave wages the employees don't agree to?
 Quoting: Professor Xavier


I can only imagine how hideous mine would be without a union.

Yep!!

As I said earlier, I already pay my employess over the suggested minimum wage and I wouldn't have it any other way!

And btw it's true, "you pay for what you get".
