No, I do not believe that. We have other laws besides the minimum wage laws that prevent that.
I acknowledge the benefit of unions prior to unions becoming what they are today.
Here's the fact:
A proficient worker can go from one company to another for better pay. The only worker that is confined to minimum wage is the worker that is so worthless no other company wants them.
A person should be paid what they are worth to the company that employs them. If they don't like it, go get more money elsewhere.
Or, that person has to admit they are useless and stays where they are, working for what they are worth.

It still seems there is a question about who was the legitimate representation of the state of Virginia in the federal republic.
Was the rebel legislature in Richmond the legitimate representation in the federal republic? Or, was the loyal legislature of what is now West Virginia that didn't rebel against the federal republic the legitimate representation of the state of Virginia in the federal republic?
Since the federal republic never acknowledged the secession of Virginia, it can only be assumed that the loyal legislature that didn't participate in the rebellion was the legitimate representation of the state of Virginia in the federal republic.
If the legislature that didn't rebel against the federal republic was the legitimate representation in the federal republic, then all the requirements of the Constitution were satisfied.
You're only argument against this has to be that the rebel legislature that rebelled against the federal republic and participated as a functioning element in a separate country in rebellion against the federal republic was still the legitimate representative legislature in that federal republic they declared to no longer be part of, and that federal republic never acknowledged their legitimate existence.
The only legislature the federal republic acknowledged as the legitimate representative of the state of Virginia was the legislature that remained loyal and did not establish itself as part of a different country.
It was that legitimate legislature that petitioned the federal republic to establish the state of West Virginia, in accordance with the Constitution.
There can be no new legislature as there was already an existing legislator of the state of Virginia, be it an absentia or whatever. You can only make that case if the state of Virginia no longer existed which they never did. Virginia was never considered to no longer be part of the United States. Following the very specific requirements of the Constitution West Virginia, as it was created from parts of another state without their approval, it should not have been allowed.

If the state of Virginia had been recognized as no longer being a part of the United States then the formation of the state of West Virginia would have been Constitutional.

Harsh? I thought it was funnier than hell. Where's your sense of humor? Here we have an a**hole ruining the country and you get offended by a play on words.

The Lynchian Panda-Clinton Oral Sex Video Produced by a Powerful Tea Party Group
FreedomWorks, the influential Tea Party political action committee, has fallen on hard times since its former chair Dick Armey staged a literal armed coup in an ultimately unsuccessful attempt to wrest control from president Matt Kibbe. It's a shame, too, because they were doing such good workólike making experimental films featuring a panda performing oral sex on Hillary Clinton!

The only people complaining about minimum wage are those who aren't worth any more than that.
I think $9 an hour is more than fair. Any company that won't pay at least that is a disgrace.

I don't get all the excitement.
If you look at an older plotter where a stylus deposited ink in two dimensions based on computer controls. Add height & have your stylus deposit a composite material instead of ink.
You have to have a program for every part perhaps generated by a cad system.
I can see the use in industry to produce parts that do not have huge quantity demands as I would think injection molding would be cheaper.
As for home use, other than perhaps for an artist or a craft application, I don't see it.
Its like a potter's wheel, unless you love to do it or sell your pieces at the local festivals, there are only so many pots & vases you need.
These people don't care what realdave can see.

Cutting taxes has the same effect as raising the minimum wage...it puts more money in people's pockets, yet these loony left wingers will fight tooth and nail to raise taxes. they're crazy.

<quoted text>A dumb hillbilly with a a good TV and cable. I wasn't doubting that 3D printers exist or that they've become more affordable. I was questioning the logic of making that sort of investment to knock off a few flimsy magazines on the odd chance that they become illegal to possess.
KEL TEK Arms of Cocoa Beach FL is already using plastics in the manufacture of handguns but it is currently illegal to manufacture an entire handgun from plastic due to airport screening conflicts.
I can see why you were questioning the investment, you thought it cost 6 figures. Now that you've been educated are you still questioning the investment?

No, the people who don't get paid enough to live on, start stealing from you. Pay your employees well and they'll be loyal.
