    Default Minimum Wage Legislation

    Why is the government at any level involved in minimum wage legislation? The Feds have it, States have it, SanFran has it - IMO it is restraint of trade, & should not happen. What say the unionista's?

    as for someone (maybe the only one here) that has an hourly wage (even though I rarely see a paycheck) a rise in the minimum wage would be the worst thing to happen to me and my industry....It will do more harm to the restaurant and tourism industry than you could imagine, jobs will be lost or eliminated, the costs will be passed along to the consumer

    If I screw up a bid, or make a mistake on a job I could be wishing I made minimum wage.

    Same here, but except for the tax and entitlement ramifications, there are a few who I wouldn't mind seeing lose their jobs, and big cohort that I would really like to see have to at least change jobs (can you guess).

    Easy! The government had to do something to make the working class people believe that they were doing something good for them, when in reality they were setting up a system that allows the profiteers to allow wages to grow at a much slower pace than the cost of living. In turn making the working class more dependent on the low wages the profiteers were willing to pay. " a government could not at the same time serve both the profiteers and the victims of the profiteers " a quote from Rose Pastor Stokes. Why does a person that works for a minimal wage not deserve a raise to help cope with the high cost of fuel, groceries, education, and medical care. There are good people in bad situations trying to rise above their current place in society so why not help, after all they could be on welfare!

    Just another way to keep dumbing down. People will get use to that wage and not want to better them self. IMO
