What I have observed over the years is that every time the minimum wage goes up, the cost of everything else goes up.

But see, it doesn't. Sure the cost of things goes up in inflationary periods and for many reasons. We're not in one of those.

I wasn't talking about instilling discipline on employees or learning the value of a dollar. That stuff is self taught or instilled by upbringing. I'm talking about the need for limits in general when it comes to the economy. If there are to be no limits how about $45 hour minimum wage. Why not?

So if you can't make a million a year it's not worth working at all? if you can't have everything you want it's not worth it? We don't make huge changes to the economy on that scale. It's self defeating. But a minor change to the Minimum Wage is appropriate. It's not a choice between zero and 45$. The limits are why they only want to raise it the paltry amount requested.

he insists that the economy is doing just fine, all we need is more taxes from every job holder.

again these so called facts are BS. He has said no such thing. Even slightly.

btw, Before Obama, a part time minimum wage job was just a stepping stone to gaining higher credit scores, climbing the ladder in the company or adding something important to your resume.  EXPERIENCE

Really? when was that again? Because it certainly had zero to do with the current administration. The job market changed some 20 years bud.

Hey man you're the one who said there should be no limits. Apparently you think there should be. See, I told you.

You forgot a few items.  Obama now has the right to kill, enemies of the state.  He also threatening reporters who don't report it the way he wants them too, this is on CNN and Fox News.  For those who don't know, enemies of the state are those citizens who speak againstthe goverment.  This will not be restricted to the battlefield.

Quite right, why should the government supposedly elected by the people stand up for the people and ensure they get paid enough to pay their bills and feed themselves?

Aren't the evil business owners people too? Shouldn't the government stand up for them also? Minimum wage jobs are starter jobs. There are stepping stones to better employment, not the final goal. Working as a cashier/cook at McDonalds is not supposed to enable you to raise a family. If you apply yourself you can move up to management, which will enable you to raise a family. If you are happy working as a cashier/cook at McDonalds for the rest of your life and desire nothing better for yourself perhaps you shouldn't raise a family.

" Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything —you can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him" - Robert Heinlein

The lacol papper here sayed that they wouldn't as many young people.  This was when minimum wage went up $7.

What do you think causes inflation, it is the price of things going up.  Such s employmet costs ad higher taxes.  Remember most rich people don't do anything here they can't make more money.  So with that in mind ask yourself why Bill Gates amongst others wants taxes to go up.

Hey, ninjadude, try using at least a few brain cells and quit attacking posters and address the post!  What do you see as Obama's legacy up to this point in time.  Give me your version of what history will have to say.

Daniel !! Long time no see. Really. :st

You're right about what you posted as well. Although I suspect it has been available to presidents since 1776.

we currently has such low inflation and taxes, that is not a problem. A little increase in the min wage will not have a huge impact.

hmmm. I'd say The Affordable Care Act. Stimulus of green energy companies. Keeping the country afloat during the worst economic recession since the Great Depression. Drones. Getting out of the decade wars. Libya. Benghazi. Insane Republicans. Much different style than Bush. Mass appeal to a much younger and diverse demographic. Illegal immigration handled. OBL gotten. other stuff.

so far
