Once again Carol, you're just reading the part of the report you want and misstating that. Over all, the budget office estimated that lifting the minimum wage to $10.10 and indexing it to inflation would reduce total employment by about 0.3 percent, or 500,000 workers. But it cautioned that the estimate was imprecise, with the job losses likely to fall in a range from practically nothing to one million.
Even at the 500,000 mark the increase in unemployment would amount to three tenths of one percent.
Several top labor economists said on Tuesday that the budget office was overstating the proposal’s effect on the job market. Lawrence Katz of Harvard, for instance, said that the budget office had used “a lot of off-the-shelf estimates” of the jobs effect, and that if it had emphasized findings from higher-quality studies, it would have found a smaller or negligible impact on total employment.
It will lift 900,000 families out of poverty reducing government expenditures for AFDC and SNAP programs. It will also increase the incomes of 16.5 million low-wage workers in an average week. This will increase spending on goods and services and stimulate the economy.
Obama only increased the minimum wage for workers in federal contracts. Raising the minimum wage across the board needs the approval of Congress nitwit.
The law the Federal Acquisition Regulations were written to enforce states wages will not be less than the previous year.
Show us the text in the Constitution that gives the President the authority to rewrite laws.
Obama... constitutional lawyer, my ass.
