"David Neumark, an economist at the University of California at Irvine, has surveyed more than 100 academic papers on the matter and said the consensus remains that raising the minimum wage hurts employment, particularly among teenagers and restaurant workers.
"The evidence is overwhelming that the minimum wage has reduced jobs among the people they are trying to help," he said."
most of you jokers never worked at a min. wage job. who the hell can survive on chicken feed when the cost of doing business is steadily on the rise. blame not the buck, but those entities that cause ppl. to pay more than they should for goods and services. the OIL industry is the biggest one that does a criminal job on working ppl.

And ONLY Liberals believe that cause they are the smart ones on economics, LOL!!!
If you have three minimum wage employees and the minimum wage is increased so that you can only afford two, you lay off the one most likely to have voted for Obama and make the other two work harder to take up the slack.

When people spend more money, the economy creates more jobs.
Walmart is the nation's largest employer, you dumbass.
When prices are increased because of mandated, unjustified wage increases, then consumers must make do with less and fewer employees are needed.

Let's cut taxes for rich people, that always creates jobs!
Who's the dumbass regarding economics?
Put more money in poor people's pocket and they spend every bit of it..it all goes back into the economy.
Give more money to Romney and it goes to the Cayman Islands.
Obama Treasury Secretary-designate Jack Lew invested his money in the Cayman Islands.

Put more money in poor people's pockets and they spend it on lottery tickets, booze, and drugs.

What's predictable is the lame GOP response. Same old same old, just (poorly) delivered by a Latin token instead of an Indian one.

To the contrary, most of us worked at part-time minimum wage jobs when we were teenagers living at home with our parents. If you have a family and can find only a minimum wage job, blame either your lack of job skills or Obama.

Bobby Jindal the ONE who saved Louisiana from the Oil Spill?
See? You hate Hispanic, Indians and other minorities!!!
If you are a Liberal then you also hate blacks, specially the ones that are not Liberals easy to fool!!!
With his data-rich calls for the creation of sand booms and other coastal defense measures, and his very visible efforts to pressure the federal government to take more aggressive action, Jindal has come to embody the response to the oil spill. There's something decidedly unconservative about Jindal's hands-on approach

obama has nothing to do with someone not having a job. he doesn't hire for the private sector.....matter of fact if it wasn't for gov't hiring and contract spending unemployment would be a lot higher. wait and see what happens when those teaBUMS no longer get those gov't spending perks.

Nobraina proves his stupidity once again.

//Turns out Texas was the state that depended the most on those very stimulus funds to plug nearly 97% of its shortfall for fiscal 2010, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

Even budget deficits are bigger in Texas
Texas, which crafts a budget every two years, was facing a $6.6 billion shortfall for its 2010-2011 fiscal years. It plugged nearly all of that deficit with $6.4 billion in Recovery Act money///
