They don't account for the rise in subsidies either. Naturally, California will have to raise the amount of food stamps passed out in addition to the extra stamps that will be needed for the people without a job.

I think the minimum wage is retarded to begin with. No one is forced to work. If an employer and an employee agree to a certain wage, then they should be able to carry on without govt interference.

Raising the minimum wage fixes jack shite. Otherwise it would have worked all the other times they did it.

Do you intentionally offend the mentally handicapped or is that a mistake?

What if an employer and employee agree the employee will take a certain sum of money and in exchange the employer has the right to the fruits of all of that person's labor for the rest of their life? Would that be OK with you?

Is that why Suriname, Guinea, Somalia, UAB, Kyrgystan, and North Korea are such paradises? Because those would be the only 6 nations in the world without a minimum wage law.

I agree to a point.

These days it's pretty hard to not implement something like that. It'd be a bitch to pay for college at $3 an hour these days.

A retard would not be offended. They are retarded.

If both parties agreed to it. Why not?

Probably without government intervention into the market, things would be affordable. Even college.

The corporations that run the country would prefer you take out loans to pay for college.

If no one took the job they would have to pay more. If it's not worth $3 and hour, don't do it.

I agree with this. People are delusional if they think every single job is worth at least $10 an hour.

Minimum wage has benefited me big time at one point. It'd be pretty hypocritical of me to argue against it

Minimum wage should not exist at all.

It takes jobs away from people, ruins customer service and affects the quality of the product. Also, govt should have no right to tell a private company how much they should at least pay an employee that is voluntarily seeking employment with the company.

I don't know why it's so hard for people to see how government dictated pricing fricks the whole system. If the minimum wage was $200hr, would everyone be rich? If so, why not raise it? shite would cost more, but hey!!! We'd all be rich!!

The last time college was affordable most of the costs of public colleges were footed by the respective states. Those are governments, right? At UT Austin, for instance, about 80% of the cost used to be covered by the state of Texas. Now only 20% is.

Could we really retract it tomorrow though?

The dollar is so inflated at this point that I don't see how we could get rid of it in any kind of fast manner.

Right - government should have no right - to do anything, right?

The dollar 20 years ago

There's no doubt a dollar buys less gallons of milk than it has in years past.
