63 days left till we get more gov't regulations. Damn, when gov't gets too involved in wages and benefits the country suffers. Think about this little case, MINIMUM WAGE. Let's say I am a very small employer, having very little money. You come along broke and hungry and I could afford to hire you for some small job and pay you $2/hour, I can't hire you because MW is $7/hr and I don't have enough to pay you. Therefore, you can starve because of gov't regulations. Gov't should not be involved with benefits and wages. This is the domain for unions.
