That was the second one numbnuts. Yes a lot of poor people who were just barely holding on lost their jobs. Some of those jobs were helping to pay the bills. It's simple math. If mom and pop have three employees and wages go up they have to let some one go or cut their own standard of living. Which do you think is going to happen.<quoted text>
This is Flack b;laming the Democrats for the Bush recession.
Signed into Law May25th.
Went into effect July 26th.
That .70 cents an hour raise.
less than two months later Bush tells us we are on the verge of a financial meltdown & the worst recession in 80 years starts in December.
Yep that minimum wage did it.
Nor the unfunded Bush Tax cuts
Not record Earmarks
Not doubling the debt
Not two quagmire unfunded wars
Not the unfunded part D expansion to Medicare.
It was that GD .70 cents an hour raise to the minimum wage.
By the way the government benefits far more from a wage increase than does any individual. Don't forget the unions either.
