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 know why she is doing it. She is just an Obama-lite. She wants to destroy the US just as much as Obama. By forcing the issue into the hands of the dumbest class of Americans (the liberals) she can force the issue by having them start demanding it, and of course Obama will gladly give it in order to remain in power. They know that by raising it to such a high level that no company can compete and stay in business, it will destroy the economy and give him the right to claim that it is all the Republicans fault because they will not give the people what they want.

Everyone now knows that in order to get what they want, all they have to do is to explain to the liberals that the republicans are refusing to give them what they want, and therefore that is something that they just have to have, regardless if it will cause the economic collapse of the entire world's economy.

Your Union starting pay was $14 Hr... DOUBLE the minimun becuase YOU were in a UNION.

My point EXACTLY.



Well Union workers make this to change a light bulb... Get the Fxxx outta here... Jack...

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.

So until everyone is making $ 22 / hr how they going to afford the increase in the costs of products and services? Not to mention most small business has about a 10 to 30% profit margin. If you increase their salary costs 50% you'll be putting a lot of them out of business.

I built a small Hot Dog restaurant Chain. Utilizing this newly proposed minimum wage, and based on my average sale's per restaurant (8 total), and average staff personnel per shift.

A regular hot dog would cost You $10.35

Fries & a drink cost extra $1.99

A Regular Combo meal would cost $12.39

Now bring Your Wife and 2.3 Kids for a quick meal and you have $49.54 for Lunch

Are you certain you want such a high minimum wage?

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."
 Quoting: Seattle88


Wow than they'll have to increase my pay to 75 dollars an hour to compensate for my education and years of service!

Yeah right! ha! Now the high school graduates out of school will be making almost what took me 20 years. I don't think it will pass.

The business I work for can't raise their rates (medicare and medicaid) so how do you expect them to pay 22 dollars an hour?

If you think your insurance rates are high now than wait till after something like this passes. You won't be able to afford your employees.

Well.. don't you think it would the the TRICKLE UP EFFECT... if they pay more at the bottom... then the MIDDLE will go higher too.

Who can live on $7.50 hr... you can't.

Who can live on $10.00 hr.

My first job paid $1.65 hr... and I CHANGED JOBS for $2.10 hr raise at a NEW employer.

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.

DREAM BIGGER and GREATER DREAMS....

So flipping burger is worthless in your mind???

So, no one can give you a rope to LIFT YOU OUT OF YOUR HOLE at this point... you LOVE and DEFEND it.

Wow, all the programming. Unbelievable. Actually I want a world like the Venus Project with a beamship in my backyard, and teleporters, and you guys are the reason we aren't living in equality. There would be no elites, councils of citizens and abundance for all, clean energy. A clean earth. Crime nearly non existent.

Now, as for minimum wage. I kind of think there should be a sliding scale. Businesses when they start up use family and basically almost free labor, they have to create businesses from nothing. Thats what we're looking at now. And yes, and the law of affinity, positive thinking is really important for everyone on this planet.

So wages would have to be tiered for company profits and positioning, if it was mandatory to immediately pay a good wage most people would be forced into illegal activities to start them from scratch, because they don't make money for a while, but cost.

However profit sharing is something I really strongly believe in and if you have a good team, small group that you know, ensuring everyone is making dreams come true, helping people upgrade education or earn downpayments for homes, and have a decent wage should be expected in all businesses.

There are no slaves.

Can't believe how low your minimum wage is guys. Here it is $17.10 per hour. I have a casual job so there is loading on top of that. Works out to be $21.55. Even my 15 year old daughter gets $15 working in a cafe.
