Since most products will rise in cost also the cost will have more effect in some places than others.
Since I will have to pay more will all people get their wages adjusted and if so what was accomplished ? Of course all on the government dole will need adjustment.

Do the people pushing this have a clue ?

They certainly do 'have a clue'.. They know full well the damage they will do to our economy, with entry level workers suffering first.

Yes, they know what damage they would do..but they just don't care. They are too much involved with buying the votes of low-information-voters and illegal aliens.

Same for the IRS and every political "subdivision" on the planet.

Government has NOTHING it didn't first TAKE from someone productive. Government is just like a tick on the back of the dog...a sucking parasite.
Sorry land-owner but I donít have near as much contempt for blood suckers and parasites...

I get your point Mule 11. It was disingenuous of me to compare the blood sucking parasites to politicians as it stigmatizes the blood sucking parasites. A person might conclude that politicians were somehow "better", which would be fallacious and wrong headed thinking. I see the error in that politicians are MUCH WORSE than blood sucking parasites...but how does one sarcastically write the black spot on the palm, an indication of being targeted, with the Kraken that is Government?

Sadly...you are right. We don't have too much longer to grouse about it. Maybe another 20 years or so. Just a single generation. After that, infinity and beyond!

If not meddled with,.. in a normal capitalist economy, minimum wage would take care of itself. As business picks up and more base level jobs open, employers have to bid for the available workers.

Liberals are stupid on this point..and intentionally so !

They are bound to admit hundreds of thousands of illegals..for their uninformed votes. However, if they left things alone and allow legal

immigration to proceed as it has done so successfully in the past, minimum wages would rise naturally.

The illegals are taking jobs away from our minimum wage workers..because they will take less money..and do that 'under the table".

The left knows just what they are doing! ..But they don't care, because they hate America anyway !

Agreed... They hate America and everything that it stands for. I have attacked democrats on this site because of what the whole of their group is doing. Some are not as bad as the whole but by being party to them they are my enemy regardless of common ground...
