How could a small business owner pay 7 or 8 people $9 an hour? Just watch that 99 center hamburger jump up to $1.99 and watch those free refills on soda vanish as well as the 24 hour stores will also vanish.

Plus side; maybe your waistline will vanish too if fast food is what bothers you most.

Obama is the biggest joke in the world. It is called the minimum wage for a reason, it was meant to be the starting wage. Great for teenagers and retired people who want out get out of the house.

Everything obama touches turns to sh1t. So now businesses will lay off people rather than be able to pay to keep them on.

Businesses including colleges are already being forced to drop people to part time due to the rising cost of obamacare. But - obama still has work to do, cause there are still people out there with jobs. He wont be happy until everyone is dependent on the government.

They do this in Canada with $10.00 minimum wage and the price of food and normal goods is skyhigh. And guess what?... they try this in the U.S and the same "poor" welfare freeloaders will continue to live high on the hog while ALL of the middle class suffers paying higher prices for everything.

That is until we go bankrupt, which is right around the corner. Oh and by the way - China has just passed the U.S as the biggest trading nation... http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-02-09/chin...

dickie, I agree with you.
I had a minimum wage job once when I was 16 and living with my parents. Then I grew up and took care of myself.
The United States will not recover as there is no way to pay off the national debt. More than half the country does not even know what is going on as they are too lazy to become informed.
People get what they vote for. Currently I don't like anything going on in Washington and I don't trust either side.

If you work a full time job for less than $9 as a career I feel terrible for you. It takes a great amount of lack of planning to find yourself trying to make that work.

so the tax paying people that perhaps don't have an associate or bachelor degree, who are just trying to live by the skin of their teeth are lazy? So what does that make the people who sit on welfare and don't even try to find a job? Not everyone can afford to get higher education or if they do they wind up owing 15k-200k in student loans that they will never be able to pay off. Sure with more initiative and the right qualifications people could make more money, however that does not mean that guarantees you the higher paying job.
