Study: Elizabeth Warren's Minimum Wage Argument 'Makes Zero Economic Sense'
In fact unlike Warren's $22 hour minimum wage the study says raising the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour will cost poor people 400,000 to 450,000 jobs and 1000's of small businesses to close. Libtards are SO ftiggin' stupid!!!!
If this post got 13 positive judgeits, then Elizabeth Warren is right.

<quoted text> Look it's really simple math and I really don't care to argue with you about it. If I have a labor cost of $35 an hour for my 3 employees and the minimum wage goes up $2.85 1 person is getting laid off. No way around it. Simple math.
Raising the minimum wage is about two things. Union wages and increased taxes.
You just proved why I know you never ever ran a successful business with employees.

Was that $35 total for 3 employees. Wow you are a cheap ass.

Or was it $35 per employee and an increase of 8% forces you to cut production/customer service by 33%. If you didn't need that third person, you shouldn't have hired them.

You do know how Republicans handled the need to people to make more money? Earned income tax credits. They subsidized businesses that pay minimum wage through YOUR tax dollars.

Just like you want to continue to subsidize these companies by allowing them to pay less & less & have the government chip in with their various programs because their employees still qualify for government benefits.

The buying power of the minimum wage has fallen below inflation & far below production value.

This is made p through government programs & through higher insurance premiums when these people with no insurance get treatment.

They sure know how to grow 'em in TN:

State residents who have high medical bills but would not normally qualify for Medicaid, the government health care program for the poor, can call a state phone line and request an application. But the window is tight—the line shuts down after 2,500 calls, typically within an hour—and the demand is so high that it is difficult to get through.[...]

“It’s like the Oklahoma land rush for an hour,” said Russell Overby, a lawyer with the Legal Aid Society in Nashville.“We encourage people to use multiple phones and to dial and dial and dial.”

The phone lines are open only for a few hours, twice a year, which obviously doesn't meet the demand in the state. If the state participated in Obamacare's Medicaid expansion, an additional 180,000 people could be covered in TennCare, according to the state's own estimates. But for now, those people have no other hope than the twice-early chance of hitting the dial-in lottery.

The amendment, like the entire bill, isn't binding. But it is a statement from the whole Senate, and particularly the core group of liberal sponsors, that the president's offer of using Social Security and veterans benefits cuts to cut a grand bargain deal is not acceptable to them. According to Sanders, a typical 65-year-old retiree would lose more than $650 a year by their 75th birthday and more than $1,000 a year by their 85th under the chained CPI. It would also cut the benefits of more than 3.2 million disabled veterans receiving disability benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs, and more than 350,000 surviving spouses and children.
Send an email to the White House telling President Obama to give up the chained CPI cuts to Social Security and veterans.

I wonder why this rightwhiners refuse to accept defeat, is it may be because they know they have made fatal mistakes when bush took us to war with lies ? or because most americans know they're nothing but clowns? Oh that's right , because of both.

10-year-old North Carolina boy was shot and killed on Sunday evening when his father’s shotgun discharged as he sat in his living room cleaning the weapon.

The child, Christopher Stanlane, Jr., was hit by the round squarely in the head and killed instantly, police told a reporter for WPDE-TV.

“He was pretty careful with [the gun],” the boy’s uncle, Robert Simmons, said in a report aired Monday night.“I don’t think he meant to hold it in that direction, but the way he was cleaning it, I guess he didn’t pay no attention to it and held it that way. There must have been a bullet lodged in the chamber and it fired.”

He added that Stanlane was a good kid “who loved ‘Call of Duty’ and riding four-wheelers,” calling his death “an unbelievable tragedy.”

Nope. Never worked for DHL. That's nutsacks spin. I worked as a supervisor for 13 years for Airborne Express. I had two of my own businesses as I did so. I had two businesses running in WV before moving down here. One I brought with me and the other I closed. Before Airborne Express I worked for another company and ran that company as I ran mine. There was no conflict of interest nor did I run my company on the other companies time. I worked my tail off to be able to do what I do now. Nobody gave me anything. One of the reasons I have young children at an older age.
