Our economy is not as good as being publicized and the want to raise minimum wage to $9.00. Raising it does not keep up with inflation and to me creates more inflation. All that is wanted is taxes that should be generated but is never collected in the first place.

That won't fix a thing and they know it. It's another bone to throw to their voters. For liberals, that means another vote buying scheme. Have to remember that it isn't the result, it's the thought that counts!

This is the ideal political suggestion.

"Look we made those greedy business owners give you more money" all the while collectiing more tax revenue, however slight that might be. The only way it could go better for them is if they could waive their corporate sponsors of this increase.

See, he's just looking out for all the full time employees who will become part time employees when they get their hours cut due to his great healthcare plan.

Hey Crappie, I'll go ahead and volunteer to try the $1,000/hr gig to make sure it works. Wouldn't want anyone to feel like they're being taken advantage of, ya know.

This is what one of my friend wrote on facebook:

Boehner is exactly right !!! "! When you raise the price of employment, guess what happens? You get less of it," Boehner said in response to a reporter's question about the president's proposal. "Why would we make it harder for small employers to hire people? Listen, I've got 11 brothers and sisters on every rung of the economic ladder. I know about this issue as much as anybody in this town. What happens when you take away the first couple of rungs on the economic ladder, you make it harder for people to get on the ladder. Our goal is to get people on the ladder and help them climb that ladder so they can live the American dream.

"A lot of people who are being paid the minimum wage are being paid that because they come to the workforce with no skills," he continued. "This makes it harder for them to acquire the skills they need to climb that ladder successfully."

Several years ago when I was a supervisor at the bearing factory here in town, I had two single mother with one child each quite to live at home. I knew one pretty good and asked how can you give up a $14 dollar per hour job with pretty good insurance and stay at home? She had more money in her pocket at the end of the month from the government than she did working and paying babysitter and other bills and didn't have to do any work.

Yep.

She gets food stamps, WIC, housing, utility assistance, and child care assistance.

I work my [censored] off and get absolutely NOTHING from the government except higher taxes.

and if the miniumum wage goes up...we will see an increase in the price of everything...gas, groceries, everything. So the middle class gets hit even harder.

Get rid of miniumum wage and reduce government benefits and you will see some serious competition for jobs. Employers will end up with better workers who will be willing to compete for better wages...We need to create a sink or swim mentallity in this country. There are to many non swimmers who are comfortable sitting in their gov. provided floaties drinking cheap umbrella drinks in the 40oz cans.

I say hurray for the minimum wage being increased and I think it ought to start with our Washington politicians. Let's see how they fare first and if they can't then maybe they'll change the government's operational standards.

IMO, it's just another angle of Barry trying to run/control the economy.
Bring down the ones who "make too much", and advance the ones who "don't make enough". (social engineering)

Demonize & punish oil companies/corporations/etc. while propping up green energy/auto unions/etc.
The more he meddles the more he screws it up. They more he screws it up the more he meddles.
