    If you are trying to support yourself, or more tragic a “family” on Min wage, then you are doing it wrong. If you are trying to support yourself and a kid on min. wage, then you really have screwed it up!
    Min. wage is not meant to support a thing! It was at one time a entry level for teenagers. But You go and follow what Obama wants and just see how hard it is to get a Min. Wage job here in the USA. Just see how much the job market drys up even farther.
    What is the job participation rate again? The same level as Carter 1, you don’t say.

    Wage and price controls have never worked in forty centuries but the dummies in Washington just pander away to the ignorant that want them to represent them.

    I’m sorry for the loss of your mother, Michael. I lost mine a few years ago, and I still miss her every day. It really never stops hurting.)

    If we raised minimum wage, maybe the taxpayers wouldn’t need to subsidize workers’ salaries at Wal*Mart. Isn’t it time that employers pay their employees, rather than the US taxpayer?

    It’s called “inflation” for a reason! When the minimum wage goes up so does cost of living. And wIth a $3 jump in the min. wage, inflation is going to skyrocket!

    The current minimum wage amounts to $15,080 a year for a 40 hour week. That’s the poverty rate for a two person household. So the spew from the left fringers is just more garbage speak.

    It was not a living wage in the 60’s. It may have had more buying power, but it was not a living wage.

    @CCNJ's say the sky is falling

    Agree. In fact, let’s make it $1000 an hour. And a burger would only cost $500. This is so easy to understand. I will assume you libs really know the truth and just don’t want to admit it. If we had another president and more jobs, wages would go up based on demand. Before Obama, everyone was making more than minimum because of the competition for workers. Forcing higher pay will just cause more people to be out of work.

    Min. wage today means you have to have mommy government set your worth for the job you can do. Back 20 years ago the Min. wage was for 1st entry into the work place. You had Min. experience, min. responsibility, min. risk. Teenagers were a good prospects for these jobs. But now?

    And oh no you mean back in the 1960 you had a “living wage” with minimum work? do tell me about them good old days and how Obama raising the min. wage will not flood out those who live at the bottom of the statistics.

    In my area’s rural VERY small town economy, about $7.50 to $8 is appropriate, in most cities in America, the $10.10, based on sales volume and cost of living, is probably minimum “survival” wage.

    Wow! Luckovich is actually kind of right here in his strip!!!!………..about 2% of the US populace ACTUALLY makes minimum wage, so the little dude (minimum wage) holding up that big lady (rest of the work force not earning minimum wage) is almost spot on! Although lets be real here, minimum wage workers don’t prop up the rest of the working populace. I think going to get a Big Mac is a choice, not a necessity. Time to move on yawn and get over yourselves on this issue.
