  • $9/hr is still NOT ENOUGH

    $1,440 per month for a full-time worker? Yeah good luck with that, especially in any big city.

    This is when corporate profits are at a record high, while union membership is at a record low.

    Hey, there's still food stamps and Medicaid.    Why should we ask the private sector to pay these people a living wage when we've got the gummit to help 'em out, right?

      The only way is to abolish Wallstreet so corporations will not be beholden to their stockholders.

      some people just are not worth 9 dollars an hour.   The higher you raise min wage , the more people you will put out of work.   You cant force business to hire people who lack the skills and work ethic if they are not productive on a job.   obama policy will kill more jobs

      Why is it the GOP's fault? Are you saying no liberals are corporate CEOs? Greed is not always political. In fact most corporations will tell you that politics for the most part gets in their way.

      Will you be getting a raise if the minimum wage goes up?

    The solution isn't for the government to mandate what employers must pay.

      Actually, it is.  We've already tried the other way of doing it, and that didn't work out so well.

    When Obama was running in 2008, he promised to raise it to $9.50. Not only did that not happen, but now he's backpedaled to $9.00. 50 million Americans at the poverty level and corporate profits through the roof, and the President can only timidly suggest raising the minimum wage...

        He's not an Asian Schoolboy living in London. 

        Probably some middle-aged shlub living with mom in a suburb of Cleveland.

      that happen to all people with no professional education in many countries, 

      $1,440 in the USA is rather much

      corporate profit is not your concern,

      either accept the work, or not

       

      here the minimal wage is $3600, paying anything below for a 100% 40 hour a week job, and the police comes an gets you

        America has zero social competence

        you could as well employ cheaper politicians and state employees from Africa, save a lot of money, and it wouldn't change a thing

      How many small business have ever failed due to an increase in the minimum wage? You have any statistics on this? Or just repeating some more bull**************** you heard on talk radio?

        The business wont fail ,, they will cut back on employees and only hire people who are able to produce enough to be worthy of the 9 bucks an hour if that is the set min wage.   A pretty large number of people in this country will be pretty much un employable.

      That seems to be the average wage here in Hiroshima for the office worker with 8 years in the company. Don't know how they make it. Rent is over $580 a month.

        Walmart net income 2011 - $15.4 billion

         

        Walmart doesn't set it's prices based on how much it has to pay it's cashiers.  The idea that an increase in the minimum wage would lead to Walmart raising it's prices is just dumb.

      It really isn't enough but it's hard to know how to fix it.  Do other countries pay burger flippers a living wage?

      Raising the minimum wage doesn't result in fewer jobs.

        Oh, I bet it will. I`m not saying it`s wrong, it`s just buisnesses like restraunts are not going to hire as many people. $9 an hour still isn`t even a living wage.


    • #15
      Are you saying those industries hiring more people than they absolutely need right now? Why? Out of the goodness of their hearts?

        They are hiring them because they work for cheap. $9 an hour is going to scare the **************** out of them...especially when it comes to the undocuments.
