    Thank god for Barack Obama..

    Minimum wage had its beginning in 1935. We will always have a minimum wage as long as there are liberals to vote to pass one. As several friends were discussing wages paid by Wal-Mart, their feelings were that W-M should be paying $20+/hour.
    When gov't got involved in wages, labor became rediculous. Gov't-liberals idea of minimum wage is to pay an individual what he needs, just like welfare, not what he is worth or produces. (By an ex-welfare employee that saw recipients getting more benefits for staing home than some of the employees.)
