    Democrats-minimum wage

    Being a die-hard democrat, I find one our goals, minimum wage, this I can't go along with as it is stated and its intentions. This bill/law addresses a very small percentage of full time legal American laborers. The number of Americans that are on fixed incomes numbers about 3 times the number of people on minimum wage now. The minimum wage law should address this problem as well. Minimum wage tries to raise the standard of living for 1 low-level employee and it decreases the standard of living for 3 on fixed income. This law does NOT, repeat does NOT raise the standards or purchasing power for the low level employee. Keep in mind as minimum wage goes up the price of all merchandise and all other laborers wages goes up, so the low level employee is still in poverty and the fixed income individual is now sub-sub-poverty.
    As a democrat I cannot support this issue.
