Your statement "raising the MW will have little to no impact on jobs" Then the $1,000/hr must be better than THE 10/hr, lots more money to spend...... Either it's good or it is not. I say it is not good to raise the MW. All People in gov't are not 'smart' people and do not know what any employer can pay and stay in business and make money. .
You are correct in your thinking for a very short period.
When the gov't raises wages the cost of ALL goods and services goes up. It usually takes 3 to 12 months before all costs level off. You do not have to be a rocket scientist to be able to see how higher wages reduces jobs. Easiest places to see this.is: auto mfg, 90+% of the welding is done by robots; 90+% of the painting is done by robot; gas stations no longer have attendants, all self service; Wal Mart's half the check out line are self service; the coal mining industry, automation has reduced employment 90%.
Idiots believe gov't raising wages does not kill jobs. The sad thing about idiots is it is almost impossible to teach them any thing.
Even the gov't, the CBO this time said 500,000 to a 1,000,000 jobs will be lost with raising MW. President and congress do not believe their own figures. Idiots. MO.
If your thinking is good, WOW a $1,000/hour should be the immediate goal.
What is wrong with Rush's choice of ins. to pay for his ED pills? What is bad is that the gov't mandates that the ins company pays it. Keep gov't out of the private sector.
The gov't mandates that the ins plan that men must buy includes maternity care. I haven't heard lately how many men are going to have babies. 60 year old women must also pay for maternity care, how many 60 year old women have babies? Gov't can screw things up big time.
Why? It is idiot reps that come up with such nonsense. MO.......
up to $10.10/hr the price of everything goes up. I wonder how much the pps of C will go up with this inflationary move of the WH??????
The 'we need" wage is to be increased by $2.84/hour..
Laws should be enforced equally to the letter of the law.
I don't know how some people can stretch a buck. The p. t. janitor, single, at the local McDonalds's makes $7.80/hr, just bought a new Chevrolet. No I do not know which model or how much she paid. But, she is driving a new car. No, she does not have a sugar daddy. She is a senior citizen way past attracting a sugar daddy....And I think the salesman saw her coming..... .
Cuoco got married New Years Eve, it appears she can't remember the date, had it tattooed on her back. Bad as my neighbor seemed she could not remember her kids names had each kids name tattooed on the top of her feet. Things sure are getting bad. Shame, shame and shame.
As Stalin once said, "Those that oppose us must be eliminated". That's what all of the Roman Emperors said.
The only way any dictator can stay in power is to eliminate those whose position is unchangeable.
No different than the democrat woman working at the polls voted many times for the president. On TV news this a. m. Shame, shame and shame.
Kings, Emperors and dictators know the only way to stay in power is to destroy/kill any and all that are against you. This administration has a weird idea that you can talk/negotiate to resolve problems with people who stand is non-negotiable. These groups only understand strength. Putin, radical muslims, etc. MO
Putin is the big bully on the block. The little kids will do what he wants until he gets smacked down hard. At this time no one is calling his hand. until then he is the boss. Think about it . MO ........
The gov't CBO says if the country passes the "We need" wage it will cause between 500,000 and 1,000,000,000 people to lose their job. Idiots cannot get it thru their hard heads as wages go up, companies turn to automation. LOOK: all gas stations are now self service; GM and auto industry-all auto welders and painters; Stores-self service check out lines; Automatic car wash; education on TV; etc, etc and etc.
I am not against a person making any wage they can get out of an employer, BUT I AM TOTALLY AGAINST THE GOV'T MANDATING WAGES AND BENEFITS.
Just heard on TV either Idaho or Montana McDonalds is paying their help over $20/hour. Let the free mkt dictate wages , not gov't. MO.
My present day fellow democrat idiot reps do not realize that Bush fell by the wayside over 5 years ago. You cannot forever blame your predecessors for today's problems. Regardless of when the problem was born, the problem belongs to todays leaders. Period. And it is the responsibility for today's leaders to fix them. Period.
It is an indeterminate date. You can lose zillions per day as long as some one will loan it to you. When your borrowing source dries up that is when you are officially BK.
We elect idiots to rep. us. City, County, State and Federal reps are all just about identical.
I understand that McDonalds up in oil country are paying $20+/hour and they can't find enough workers. . Let the mkt decide wages and benefits, not Obama and congress. CBO says if Obama gets his way, and the 'we need' wage is raised to 10.10 between 500,000 and 1,000,000 people will lose their job. I know in my neighborhood some of the little restaurants will close.
My Rare Romanian Gypsy Cut Glass Crystal Ball has been having heavy fog. It appears that something is going on with this stock...... Maybe an M or an A.?????? As long as the dividend remains safe nothing else really matters. The future will take care of it's self.
No question is too stupid to answer, people do not have enough intelligence to answer them. This question came up in a meeting of very old people. Smart people would simply say, "I don't know'.
