So much for the Liberal claim that freeloaders like these DEMOCRATS want to earn their way.

    That's 12.75 more per hour than you make and 20 more per hour than you are worth with you self proclaimed, but unproven, degrees.

    My problem with increasing the minimum wage is that those getting the increase aren't doing a damn thing more in the way of skills to get it. It's the only wage where one has to do nothing in order to get paid more.

    Dear JPP Reader:

    The problem with the $15 minimum wage is that it was not supported by a 100% flight tax. Oh, and corporations are free to set up shop wherever they want.

    The problem with the $15/hour minimum wage is that someone providing skills worth $2/hour is getting 7 1/2 times what they're worth and those not doing the paying of that wage think it's their place to dictate what money that isn't theirs should be spent.

    That's very forthright!

    Of course as competing companies reduce laborers' pay to $2/day, it becomes necessary to slash wages yet again just to remain competitive. Two dollars an hour today, one dollar an hour tomorrow, then one dollar a day, and so forth.

    How does one build a first world economy on that basis? You don't! Northwestern University economist Robert Gordon rightly notes that the US has entered a stage of permanent economic stagnation, expanding social inequality and poverty.

    Moreover, there is absolutely nothing Paul Krugman can do to stop it!

    Marxists have long said that workers cannot be paid a living wage under Capitalism; but it isn't every day you meet Capitalist exponents who cede Marx' point. Again, thank-you for your forthrightness.

    It's called paying someone what their skills are worth. You talk about social inequality and poverty yet seem to be saying businesses/capitalism are the causes of it. If someone brings only low level skills to the table, that's not the fault of the one doing the paying, it's the fault of the one doing the bringing of the skills. If someone doesn't want to be poor, provide something worth paying for in the way of skills.
