    Who cares? If you are relying on social security to provide your retirement, you're either stupid or masochistic.

    If the min wage is 15, millions will require far less government help and food stamps. They won't be a drain on the super, ungodly massively hard-working rightys.
    They also will buy things and result in more hiring. That is what demand is.

    Until the price of goods and services rises to a point where $15 an hour buys you what $7.50 an hour did before and then the same useless bodies demand that their welfare checks catch up...

    Or you are one of millions of Americans who have dignity in senior life because of one of the most successful socialistic programs ever devised in America, having lifted MILLIONS from destitution.

    The problem for detractors of the American Social Security System is that it works so well for so many.

    When FDR installed the min wage, he said it was a living wage. He said a company that will not pay a living wage did not deserve to operate in America.

    That is not a direct proportion. For instance, it has been estimated that the price of a Big Mac will hardly rise at all. Pricing is not determined solely by cost. It is determined largely by what the public will pay for it.

    If pricing was determined by cost, we would have affordable healthcare, unlimited internet and phone services would be about $10 each, and Martin Shkreli would not be in prison.

    Dumbest statement ever. It never occurs to economic morons like PoliTalker that as you increase the COST of doing business, it gets passed on to everyone therefore negating any mandated minimum wage laws.

    $100 x 2080 hours in a year is 208,000 annually. Depends on your definition of what is "rich." To a vast majority, its life changing.

    But do continue flailing and avoiding the point Yakuda is making you dishonest hack.

    What a moronic Fascistic comment. But then, you excel at making moronic Fascistic statements.

    Arguments about "livable" wages are moronic. So tell us dipshit, what is the definition of "livable" wage. I would argue that $31,200 a year, which is what $15 an hour amounts to, would not be a "livable" wage in most urban shitholes denominated by the Party of the Jackass.

    In addition,. who will be these "deciders" of what is a "livable" wage dipshit?

    Liberals are the most uneducated dumbasses on the planet.
