$1,440 per month for a full-time worker? Yeah good luck with that.
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?
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
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...

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.
