If we raised minimum wage to 12-14 dollars an hour, then the lower income classes would have more money to spend in the economy,


They will not be better off because business will just increase prices to cover the increased wages. Artificially inflating wages just leads to, you guessed it, inflated prices.

I'll play. Let's say I own a business. I suddenly have to pony up an extra $5 or so per hour per employee. Plus I probably now have to pay their health care, but we'll forget that for now.

Odds are I'm not going to just lose money, I'll raise prices and pass the cost to the consumer. Probably the vast majority of my peers will too, and that little pay increase will look pointless soon enough. And there will be a nice little side effect of higher prices that won't go down.

I posted this because liberal rag ThinkProgress said it was the most important bill blocked by Republicans this year. And of course the commenters in the comment section chipped in with their usual "GOP are in bed with the rich" comments

quote:

House Democrats proposed legislation in June that would have raised the national minimum wage to $10 an hour, but Republicans blocked it. The minimum wage is currently $7.25 an hour, even though it would need to be raised to $9.92 to match the borrowing power it had in 1968. If it was indexed to inflation, it would be $10.40 today.

With your support of a minimum wage increase, do also propose legislation to prevent businesses from raising prices of their goods & services to cover this cost?


Prices fluctuate for many different reasons. How often has the minimum wage been increased in the last 20 years and how has it negatively affected prices?

Every time minimum wage increases unemployment increases

Minimum wage increased in May 2008, what happened a few months later

What I love about you trollcity, much like your fricked up somebody you know raising a family on min wage, this is horse shite too. Why don't you ever actually put forth a point always with the questions, well it's simple really you are a troll. Like fat chicks you are kinda fun to mess with but that's about it.

You answer a question with a question? It was simple, do you support the government passing legislation to prevent price increases? How much control should they have?

I love you too. R's like you love to berate the opposition, but when I ask you to explain your position or why republican ideals should matter to me, you only have passive aggressive comments, no answers. Maybe thats why you guys can't win?

The increased prices are offset by the increased wages. But workers would still have more money to put into savings.

Serious question. Have you ever had a basic/simple economics class?

Wrong. They would be paying MORE for goods and services and actually have LESS to put into savings. This isn't up for debate. It's a 100 level economics lesson.
