Default minimum wage????

So the stupid government wants to raise the minimum wage.
It will get the lots of votes from the stupid people.

But who is going to pay for it????
Business is not going to take the hit.

Most are just getting by a it is.
They will just cut hours, fire workers, and raise prices.

So now you have more people out of work, or working less hours, and things will cost more.
If things cost more, people will spend less.

When people spend less, business make less.

Many will just close, putting more people out of a job.
What about those who have worked hard for many years, so they could get more get paid more than minimum wage????
Won't they expect a raise too.
They worked for it, so they deserve it.
government wants everyone to get paid a living wage.
Hotel workers went on strike to get a living raise.
They got it.
Their pay is $28 an hour, for the lower workers.
How is the government $15 a living wage, when hotel workers living wage is $28??????
Minimum wage is suppose to be the base, starting pay.

Not something to live on.

If you are to stupid, or to lazy, to improve yourself, who's fault is that????

They should lower the minimum wage. Eliminate the tax on food and health care.
Make it a requirements you have to work to get welfare.

Take away "lifetime" welfare.

Default Re: minimum wage????

you might want to do a basic spell check before calling the Gmt. and others stupid lol
you also should check out the history of the min. wage and how it was corrupted and scammed to favor everybody but the worker who has long since been relegated to a National slave labor force as corporate wealth went stratospheric and diamond-studded golden parachutes for criminal CEOs became the norm.
when you purposely $crew a country over there are going to be severe pains in correcting the grievous errors and of course it's the little guys who bare the brunt and go out of business as the guilty wealthy buy yet another super yacht.
before Reagan the min. wage provided a living wage if you managed your money well, after despot Reagan... this country has never recovered.

I have said many of these things in other forums, on social media and directly to friends and colleagues. You had me until your last paragraph.

Lower the minimum wage?! No. Whatís done is done. Letís not create hardship for those who are counting on a certain paycheck.

Eliminate the tax on food and healthcare?! First of all, most people go to the grocery store to buy food. Attached to the price of that food is a sales tax. The sales tax is basically an estimate of how much the grocer will owe in general excise taxes. So they pass that along to the consumer, to avoid losing money.

Do you know what is attached to the general excise tax?! THE RAIL TAX. Itís 0.5% of the transaction. This is why in most stores where ten years ago you paid 4.167% you NOW pay 4.667% Do you REALLY expect the city and the state to consider eliminating that?

The city actually bribes the state to keep the tax by giving them 10% off the top. Read about and/or watch it here:

Tax Foundation files lawsuit against state for skimming rail tax

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A new lawsuit is accusing the state of skimming millions of dollars from the Honolulu rail project.

Since 2007, the State Tax Department has charged Oahu residents nearly $170 million just to collect the half percent tax to fund the rail project.
