    I just saw some burger-flipping kids protesting for $15 an hour!
    Who the hells getting 100% pay raises for the same work these days?
    How about you stay in school, use your $8 an hour pay for books and when you graduate, then demand more money. Or work your butt off, like the rest of us, and get promoted!
    Sadly, our prez has nationalized a sense of entitlement.

    It’s a very good thing your mind wasn’t warped by any salt water economics classes. Give the fast food workers more money, and they’ll spend it all, and the ripples will do a lot to stimulate the economy, which is the last thing we want.

    We have to stick to the treacle down theory, since it has hardened, irremovably, into our only approved economic theory.

    How can it be a “Sweat” shop when it’s 30 below outside and inside the Shop?

    I challenge you to finance yourself through school on $8 per hour. I’m assuming you are talking about education beyond high school, since there’s no way a the average person can make more than minimum wage without that. Priced textbooks lately? Each course will cost you anywhere from 8 to 12 hours or more of work. Don’t forget tuition. And you need a warm place to sleep, and food. Good luck. Tell me how it works out.

    The money to pay the workers has to come from somewhere.
    Right.. perhaps from CEO’s demanding a tad less profit.

    Newsflash: Ceo compensation set by their respective board of director’s. In some cases the amount seems obscene, but it is individually assigned based on results. Burger-flipping has a minimum amount ASSIGNED. It is not related to MARKET conditions at all. So you are both correct + incorrect about the Prez’s input

    Yeah, results of grand theft…and, re: “in some cases the amount seems obscene” – how about ALL of ’em?!??

    Yes, I am talking about college and/or trade school.
    Come on Play, you know a vast majority of us got grants and loans that we paid back once we got a real career.
    Kids can do the same today. They just need to put off having the $200 pair of headphones.

    Really? I thought our President was all about Robin Hood, take from the hardworking and give to the lazy

    I wish more Board of Directors had the spine to make the CEO and officer compensation plans tied to profit, rather than share price or some such idiotic idea. CEO’s are overpaid, but it is their friends on teh board doing it.

    I hear you. But things are different now. A few years ago, I tried, as an established doctor with many years of experience, to go out on my own and start my own practice. Not a single bank in my town would provide me with a business line of credit to finance the massive expenditures needed to do necessary build-out and purchase equipment and supplies. I was fortunate to find a lender well outside our community, but there was only one choice available. Now, if I have that kind of trouble, how easy will an $8-an-hour worker be seen by the bank as a proper loan risk?

    @Tim Culberson

    Read the yearly reports that are sent to stockholders. All of them tell you that compensation of board members are based on what these same people cold earn at similar positions elsewhere. Since company B pays this much, so should company A. And since companies A and B both pay this much, so should company C. It’s not a question of merit or capability, it’s keeping up with the Joneses.
