    No one’s been laughing anymore. Too expensive. Get worried when people realize they haven’t been laughing in a while.

    How about every gets a raise? How about everyone gets to keep what they earn? How about making it for an employer easier to hire and maintain workers?

    Raise the minimum wage and her wage gets cut and dumped on living more on tips! before the Min. wage went up she could get hired on cheap, plus tips, plus raises. Now with min. wage to high she got her hours cut, here wage is now at “tip” level and a raise is a thing of the past that the owner can not afford. Plus she now has to do dishes in the back because paying a teenager min. wage to wash them is just to much now!

    Ben’s a left fringer incapble of getting it.

    At the current minimum wage: 40 hour weeks times 52 wewks equals $15, 080, or the government’s claimed poverty level for a two person home. A martried couple both earning minimum wage equals $30, 160, or $10,000 more than the poverty level for a family of four. Hopefully, one or both spouses will get better jobs and better pay over time and their income will go up.

    Tipping should be abolished. Most of Europe has adjusted prices and got rid of tipping. Bur of course we still have inches, Miles and Fahrenheit. And potholes.

    Obviously, davis doesn’t think poor folks should reproduce. I assume he never eats out & changes the oil on his car himself.

    Low income people spend all their income while the uppers hold their money.
    Money in action is better for the community.

    Not a fan of raising the minimum wage, I think it’s a cheap issue for Democrats.
    .
    2 ideas I would like to see explored here perhaps an import tax to help spur American industry, being the largest market on earth should have a few strings attached. Next an idea like what was proposed in Switzerland; tie the maximum wage to the lowest paid worker. The gap between the highest paid person and the lowest paid person has increased exponentially.

    Please try to look at the forest not just the policy trees.
