$22 to $33 Hr - Minimun Wage Coming soon..... Senator Warren - Hope it passes... we need it.
You know.... the Unions get it.... and the CEO's get it... I say it is time for EVERYONE to get it.

I own a small business... and I pay $25.00 hour to my staff. They work very hard for me... and help me MAKE MOENY... they ARE WORTH IT..... it is simply the COST of doing business...

Even though I am an independent... this is something I can wrap my support around.

You know... my business is still a BIG Success even in a bad economy... and I say... spread the wealth around...

Also... it is an inner projection that there is ALWAYS PLENTY for everyone... I don't live from a place of LACK so my staff does NOT LACK what they need to do their job.... or support thier personal dreams.

of course.. I only have a very small staff of 5.. so you can make an argument that I am TOO SMALL to count... Smile.

As you GIVE to your staff... people who work for you SUPPORT your VISIONS and DREAMS with their love and energy.. so it is a WIN WIN!.

Smile.

I also think when people make more money... they have a BETTER ATTITUDE within that naturally HELPS everyone.

Perhaps with a better minimun wage..... it would be an incentive to GET OFF THE INTERNET and go back to work!

Elizabeth Warren: Minimum Wage Would Be $22 An Hour If It Had Kept Up With Productivity

"If we started in 1960 and we said that as productivity goes up, that is as workers are producing more, then the minimum wage is going to go up the same. And if that were the case then the minimum wage today would be about $22 an hour," she said, speaking to Dr. Arindrajit Dube, a University of Massachusetts Amherst professor who has studied the economic impacts of minimum wage. "So my question is Mr. Dube, with a minimum wage of $7.25 an hour, what happened to the other $14.75? It sure didn't go to the worker."

In the UK $22+ DOLLARS is a very very good hourly wage. The idea of that being minimum wage here is ludicrous.

Id have piles of money everywhere if i was on that much money as my outgoings are probably not even 25-30% of that.

Its more than policemen/firemen/pharmacist and jr doctor wages here.

You think nothing of paying Union Workes lots more than that in the USA becuase THEY ARE UNION.

You think nothing of paying CEO's TRILLIONS.. becuase THEY ARE THE CEO...

But.. the CEO is NOT WORTH TRILLIONS..... SHARE THAT WEALTH.

SPREAD the WEALTH...

Then again.. the WORKER Will BE RESPONSIBLE to PRODUCE... and not just talk and play on the GLP All day... but WORK.. for their employer.

while i think its more likely that america would rather adopt "right to work" rules than raise minimum wages, i can vouch for the fact that having an economy where you elevate your people above other populations by paying them more makes people happier to go to work. And more likely to do overtime and less likely to rock the boat.

Minimum wage here is about $9.50, which is why $25 dollars is damn good money. Basically the income of two and a half jobs.

Ohh by the way...do you pay for their healthcare too?


Maybe if you had thousands of employees...you couldn't afford that increase...

The country can not afford minimum wage to be even $10...

Don't get me wrong...I'm a share the wealth guy when it comes to keeping good employees....

Nobody makes more money than WALMART... Why don't they pay their employees more and give them healthcare?

They don't give a FUCK...CORPORATE GREED RULES THIS COUNTRY...NOT GUYS LIKE YOU... iamwith

CEOs aren't getting paid trillions, chief. the only ones raking in trillions are the banksters and petro-cos, the petro-cos basically being tentacles of the banksters.

raising the minimum wage is not the way out of the mess. do you think all the manufacturers and stores would keep prices the same?

absolutely not. triple their payroll expenses and they will pass that cost on to the customer, assuming they can even stay in business.

Basic Economics tells us that raising the minimum wage cause all prices to go up. Therefore, those that have had a mimum wage increase will lose it simulataeously as prices for everything they purchase jump. In fact, artificially raising the minimum wage has always hurt the economomy because the action is contrary to our once laisse-faire system.

The real questions is, why is Warren proposing this knowing its counter-productive to economic stability?

Basic Econ, what a shame...

You see... it is just RELATIVE to your MIND.

I DREAMED a DREAM.... I wanted to be my own boss... I worked hard.. and the Universe PRESENTED several opportunities.

You have to consider that we have the health service and such though and dont have health insurance etc.

But there are other factors, im pretty sure our fuel is about 5x more expensive than in the US, our electronic goods are usually about the same price in decimals.

IE a TV in the US is 499, here its £499 or £399, which is much more expensive.

Outside of LONDON the cost of living isnt so bad here providing you own property and dont have a money pit for a car.

20 dollars an hour in parts of london, meh.
20 dollars an hour in rural northumberland where you own your own house, comfortable.

50 dollars an hour, hahahaha i could retire in 8-10 years.
