Worth of a person is a separate issue. When talking about a burger flipper and a CEO, please tell me the job description and requirements of each and tell me who's attained knowledge is, when put to use, worth more for that company?

Or break it down like this.......do you think the burger flipper should be paid the same as a Doctor who spent years and money learning such a medical trade?

You guys like to BITCH about it... and not do anyting ... this is ONE WAY to start the balance of money... but as you can ALL SEE CLEARY... you have too many issues.... excuses... REASON .... that say NO NO NO NO NO...

so.. you have earned the RIGHT to NEVER AGAIN COMPLAIN About it..... because YOU TRULY DO NOT Support any equality in your income.

It is CLEARLY DEMONSTRATED here.

You attack me with your frustrations... but I am NOT the problem. YOU ARE.

It would weed out a lot of companies for sure. People would learn who was honest and who really was greedy when they see which company sky rockets their prices and which doesn't, implying they won't all do it. However, people would happier to go work that's for certain. And unions would probably ruin it for people like they naturally do. It all sounds too good to be true but I would support it.5a

When I graduated from High School (a long time ago) my first job paid $1.17 per hour.

Know what?

No sales tax, almost no income tax, very low property tax... wait for it... here's the punch line...

I could cash my paycheck and ask a bank teller to give me silver dollars.

How would you like a minimum wage of one silver dollar per hour today? ...with no sales tax, almost no income tax, and very low property tax, and complete freedom. Go where you want, do what you want to, a kid could go in a hardware store and buy a gun... the hardware store probably knew your parents and might get on the phone and call them if you were pretty young like perhaps 12 years old.

Yep.
I, too, own a small business (right now restructuring) and pay my staff $25/hr but like yours, they are worth it and I only have a few.

But $22-33/hr for minimum wage for ANY job? That's damn near preposterous!

We have much bigger problems as a society.

Why do we pay "superstars" so much money to entertain us? People throw what little money they have at other people so they can live for us...why do some want a life lived vicariously?

Sports stars...They get to play a fucking game...I think they should be happy with getting a paycheck for playing a game. I do not care how much "skill" it requires. It absolutely contributes nothing to society...nothing.

Television and Movie Stars...make millions of dollars to "play pretend" and distract you from the fact you are giving someone else your money to live for you.

Why are we so fascinated with "being entertained"? Instead of parking your chip and soda fat ass on the couch and watching the Kardashians and Swamp People...why not get off your ass, take up a hobby or a craft that you can sell at roadside stands and art fairs...

Life is really what you make of it and if you want to give your moeny to someone else so they can live for you while you watch from the sidelines...you don't deserve more than minimum wage.

Be a do-er...not a watcher. Stop being distracted, dumbed down and entertained all the time.

Minimum wage is the same as price fixing.

Think, less capital = less workers, less product = higher prices for products.

This sounds sweet until you go shopping with your huge check and are only able to buy the same as before.

Yea, and that's just one problem with unions.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1627594


I was in union construction and the only people that could afford to build at that cost are the government because money is no object to them.

I wonder how much this would increase the deficit seeing as how there are millions of GOV workers that make less than $22 an hour.

This is a retarded idea. I know disabled people that would like to work, but they aren't even worth paying $10 an hour because their production is low, but they don't mind working for less.

Sadly is the difference is back then a 12 yr old with a gun was most likely shooting at things, probably birds and such. A 12 -yr old today with a gun wants it to shoot other people.
Times have unfortunately changed and this entitled generation would NOT be able to handle making that much as min. wage.

They've no work ethic, no discipline, no attention span. Like the other poster said, paying someone $25/hr to flip burgers, when they can't even get an order right, is ridic.

I'm about to hire a part time worker at $10 an hour, but its gonna be a tight squeeze making that profitable.

I have to hire under the table because of Obamacare.

This is only gonna create a huge untaxed black market for labor because there will be business that are able to hire at 10-15, but not 22. And there will be ppl willing to work for $10, so there ya go.

The result of this move would be a large increase in the deficit and an explosion of a black market untaxed labor force. But they can feel all warm and fuzzy inside like they did something.

Gasoline was about 1/4 ounce of silver in 1960.

Gasoline is cheaper today than it was in 1960.

Gasoline today is about 1/8 ounce of silver.

The cost of government on the other hand is at least ten times what it was in 1960 - probably more than 10X...

Amen brother.

Until there is a Gold Standard & Fiat is totally dead no 'minimum wage' will matter. They will just print more money & increase the inflation rate.

The only solution is anarcho-capitalism. What you have in America is monopoly corporatocacy capitalism (a blend of money politics w/ big money corporation's). Laws are simply passed to benefit the monopolists & not the free traders. You wonder why small business's are suffering? There's your answer.

Until you put every politician & every company that has ever influenced a law by their money on trial, none of this will be fixed.

Enjoy the shipwreck.

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.

By all means their bread should be $8-9/loaf if what you were saying was true. But it isn't fucking true.
