    But if they raise the minimum wage to an actual living wage, I might have to pay a few more cents for my big mac and fries.

    It is still much too difficult for Decent Americans, Democrats and Republicans, to fully staff their mansions without having to resort to illegal aliens for nannies, gardeners, butlers, maids, valets, footmen, etc., etc.


    We need to get the 99% back where they all belong: into service!

    Let’s try upperclass taxes where they were during the Clinton era; maybe we’ll get back the Clinton era economy.

    Your comment makes one see an odd comparison between fiefdoms and congressional districts.
    Serfs Up!
    Money is a finite resource, therefore, it does matter how much of it is available to everyone with a need for its original usage, to barter for goods and services. Using it to gamble on the difference in value between national currencies seems to make a lot of people very wealthy, but produces no goods and no services.
    I actually support a two tiered minimum wage, one for high school students and college students living at home, and one for the majority of actual minimum wage recipients, people over 30 with children and/or other family members for whom they care.
    Those who defend the right of the individual to have ALL of the bartering tools, i.e., money, will find conflict with the words of Jesus, Mohammed, and even Buddha.
    Justice would have the man on top of the pile of money falling to the ground and breaking his neck… not for being wealthy, but for how he is treating the man at the bottom.
    Respectfully,

    What about the tens of millions of people that have worked hard, come to work on time, and done a good job to earn raises and EARN more than minimum wage. Are they supposed to just be happy about the fact that any new employee with a pulse is making as much as them or are they going to get raises from the magic money tree too?

    I was a manager of a service business when I was younger. I worked hard to get there and I worked hard to get busier stores and reached the top of my market. One day the company decides to raise the minimum manager salary by 5k and in the swipe of a pen all new managers at lower volume, weaker performing stores were making as much as I made with a lot of hard work and extra hours. I could have quit, but I stuck it out and pushed for another promotion and moved up again in the company.

    A minimum wage job is a starting point and not meant to be a career position to support a family. If you have a family you have a responsibilty to better yourself and earn more to support it.

    Perhaps you are unaware of what happened when Henry Ford raised his workers’ wages to $5 a day in 1914, essentially doubling what other auto makers were paying their workers.

    Look it up.

    In a just society " Working Poor" would be an oxymoron

    In most societies “working poor” are just morons. That’s why they’re poor…

    No, you’re clueless as ususal. Productivity has risen over 90% in the past twenty years while wages have been stagnant. The minimum wage is the lowest it’s been since Truman, health care and living costs are up significantly since then, and retirement benefits like pensions are going away.

    @ARodney

    Porductivity has risen primarily because of automation not because workers have become more proficient.
    Your argument is also a fallacy of division. That is you are arguing that minimum wage has something to do with productivity when the two are clearly not related.
    .
    But, I think there is reasonable argument to be made that minimum wage and a lack of necessary skill and / or intellect for the work performed can be linked together.
