Durbin: White House backs $10 mininum wage

quote:

Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said Thursday the White House has signalled its supported for raising the minimum wage above $10 an hour. Durbin (D-Ill.) emerged from a caucus lunch meeting with White House economic adviser Jason Furman to say the White House is on board with the push for a $10.10 minimum wage. “The explanation here suggested that he would be very supportive of $10,” Durbin said. President Obama had called for a $9 federal minimum wage in his State of the Union address but had not publicly endorsed a bill by Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) to bring the $7.25 minimum to $10.10. “We are all kind of in the $10 range. Virtually all of us,” Durbin said of the Senate Democratic caucus. “It’s long overdue, it’s an important economic issue.”

Lets make it $15. Then we can see prices for goods rise even more.

I agree. The best way to stomp out poverty is to give everyone money

Ask and Ye shall receive.
The SeaTac initiative will raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour for hospitality and transportation workers in and near Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. The current minimum wage in Washington State is $9.19.

With all precincts counted, the 'Yes' vote was leading by 54% to 46%, but opponents say it is still too close to call. There are still uncounted votes, due to Washington's mail-in voting system.

At some point, the democrats fiscal liberalism has to catch up to them and bite them in the arse like social conservatism is doing to the GOP right now.

prices are likely to stay relatively flat.

way fast food businesses will work around a min wage hike is to hire less people and move to more automated methods of payment to replace workers who are too expensive given the "skills" they bring to the company.

minimum wage increases will only ever work if government forces businesses to hire a minimum # of employees. otherwise companies will simply cut their workforce to offset the higher wages.
