Evil will flee, with just the mention of Christ!!!!
Evil willfully, with just the mention of Christ.

How many have been robbed, prosecuted, persecuted, enslaved (in mind vastly more than in body) and slaughtered IN THE NAME of Jesus? Too many to count. No matter how devout one is or what religion they are, there are never any guarantees that life will be fair, just or safe.

Oh, ut they dont do that stuff any more, you know because we would lock them up if they did.
They sure do miss having slaves, at least that is what all the minimum wage jobs are like

Just a few questions... Do you think everyone should get paid a Maximum wage? If so should the guy that flips a burger get the same wage as a neurosurgeon? Would you be willing to pay 10 bucks for a can of soup so the stock boy can make 35k a year?

You are exaggerating. If that can of soup, or loaf of bread cost 10 cents more the employees would be able to earn a livable wage, unless the company took it to have more profit. If the top people in the company got paid 10% less the employees could earn a livable wage, or if they just where not so greedy.
BUT by your reasoning, people who work at grocery stores or fast food do not deserve more than minimum wage but should live in the streets and beg for food because even people whom work should not get public assistance????
Why should some one get super rich off of the work of others? I say that we should boycott big business and support small family business, keep the dollars in the community instead of going to ARK.

NO Q, not a maximum wage, but a wage where they do not have to beg for food stamps and can get medical care yes, after all they work.

Then the costs of the products they produce rise... If I make 1 dollar an hour and I can afford the 1 dollar widget I make then when I get paid 2 dollars I have to make a 2 dollar widget... It is Impossible to make any manufacture or service provider to pay for any wage or benefits packages... Any will always transfer costs to the end users.. It does not matter if it's a mom and pops local store or a mega corporation... If you make 10 bucks and you build a 5000 dollar car you are doing no better if you make 50 bucks and have to buy a 30,000 dollar car... Any Tax increase to Anyone that produces a product or manufactures a product will pass that cost to the end user... If you tell me I'm going to pay more in taxes I will increase my cost of the services or products I provide... If I am told I am limited in my profits then I will reduce my risk and effort, along with numbers of people I supply jobs too until I am at my maximum levels... Or I close up shop all together and go get a for hire job, fire all my employees and make the same profit margins...

How christian of you. So the man who is injured on the job and can not work should starve? The old people who worked their whole lives but their pensions where stolen by the wealthy should starve?
Thank you for proving that you do not follow Jesus and that your christian cult is evil

Minimum wage is a sure way to keep people at their lowest possible level... All Wages should be totally based on the value of the job performed and what the market can bare...

The opposite is happening right now. Companies are raising prises but wages are not rising. Tell me that the oil companies that are posting record profits need to charge so much for their product? Tell me that food prices need to rise even though wages are not rising.
I had three employees at my computer repair shop, I paid them 20 dollars an hour and still made $80,000 a year, I could have paid the 15 an hour and pocketed another $30,000 but I believe that the worker should be able to feed and clothe his/her family.
When executives are paid tens of millions of dollars your argument is nugatory at best.
A small business in the community can not pay themselves millions, but loyal employees will help the business stay profitable and loyalty is a two way street.
As far as government regulations go, if you are poisoning some ones water supply you should not be in business, if you are endangering some one (your employee) you should not be in business. If you can not make money with out hurting others you should not be in business because they have the same rights you have

Maximum wage versus minimum wage? The federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour. That works out to $15,080 gross for one or $30,160 for a working couple IF they are allowed to work full time. Below $23,050 annual income is considered the poverty line for Kentucky. When you take out the typical paycheck deductions and contributions, that leaves a working couple right at the line even before paying for family health coverage. Meanwhile, they are paying taxes on where they live, restaurant foods, any merchandise besides groceries, gasoline, vehicle registrations,... and don't forget that you have to take out an additional 10% x 2 for tithes if they are a "good" christian couple.
So what percentage of their real income is left over to buy that can of soup?
But you asked if everyone should be paid a maximum wage. Many CEOs are way ahead of you on that one. They only take an annual "wage" of $1.00 a year in an effort to pay the absolute lowest possible income tax. Their real compensations are given in stock options and other rewards.
Remember that can of soup? In 2011 Campbell's CEO received a wage of only $837,500 - but "other compensations" totaled over $2.8 million, which isn't a lot by industry standards... I don't begrudge anyone their fair due.

Bear, not bare.

Minimum wage was instituted because Americans were being exploited. History has proven beyond a shadow of any doubt that industries CANNOT BE TRUSTED to regulate themselves.

And we Pay for it by having cheap cars cost 30 grand and making the poorest of the poor suffer.... If your view was valid then Poverty should have been less with the rise of minimum wage and the 12 Trillion dollars spent on the War on Poverty... But what History has Proven is that when you give people Just Enough to Survive many will become dependent at the lowest level of survival... When you allow people to do or die... they more often that not Do....

I fit in to the category of paying my employees a livable wage.
You should have been more specific, as you like to twist things around.
I agree that those who will not work, but are able can just do with out, but how do you justify that as a follower of christ?
I do not follow your evil bible but you are bound to it, The book of Matthew any chapter any verse
