    Re: Raise The Minimum Wage

    Canadian minimum wages are higher (as is the value of its currency) and there is no proof that this has caused unemployment.

    Well, when Canada gets it`s population up to 306 million, as opposed to 30 million (a mere 10%)...........let us know.........K punky?




     

     

    Let's watch the language there, ok?

    This whole minimum wage discussion just points out the obvious shift in our society, from making your own way, improving yourself, to what will government gives me.  Obama is turning the whole nation into people who can't fend for themselves, or won't fend for themselves, instead, depending on government to set their wage, give them their food stamps, and so on.

    That's what this argument is really about. Power through dependency.

     




     

    Ding Ding Ding!

     




     


    Wow.... ok... 

     




    So..on the one hand..Skeeter rails against government subsidies such as food stamps..etc. ..yet on the other...he is okay with companies paying workers depressed wages. We have a minimum wage in this country for a reason...and really it is too low as it is. Everytime a company pays a full time employee minimum wage..said company is basically asking the government to pick up it's slack. 

     

    People need to live..after all. They need to be able to put a roof over their head or food on the table. No one can really do that working minimum wage on their own. Hence the government steps in with subsidies.


    In other words..you can't be against both.

     




    Skeeter is basically an anarchist at heart.

     

    He would have government do essentially nothing except maintain an army. Fallen on tough times and can't make it on your own? Tough. Born disabled into a poor family? Expose 'em on a mountain.


    He seems to think that human society should exist as any other animal.



    Again.  you got me all wrong.

     

    What I am not is a wishful thinker like you.  

     

    You think the monimum wage goes up, and everything is <PC incorrect word> dory.  It is not.

    Here's a view of what really happens:

        Wage goes up by law.

        Prices in theat store go up.

        Fewer people buy the product.

        Fewer workers are needed, some are let go.

    You can't force feed wage rates into the broader economy, just like you can't push price controls.  Nixon tried this, remember?  It didn't work then, it won't work now. The likely result of pushing for a higher minimum wage is greater unemployment.

    Get it?

    Punky is a problem for you huh?




     

     

    Time for you to grow up.  I'm in my 60s and don't answer to childishness like that. Furthermore, it is only an admission that you lost this debate just like you did with the others.

    Don`t think so.  Your links were from dailykos and democratunderground.  The Cartoon Network has more credibility.  Everything you`ve said today I watched on MSNBC last night.

    All Lib talking points and all wrong.
