Since you think you know science better than scientists, it only makes sense that you think you know economics better than economists. Of course, you have no education in either and think that supermarket tabloids are trusted news sources.<quoted text>Give me a break, raising the minimum wage will cost thousands of jobs. How many? No way to tell for sure but the more the increase in MW the more job losses will be. Now if the economy is strong enough at the time those loses will return over time, but the economy does not appear to be very strong right now. If the increase to 10 bucks is over 10 years, I can accept that. But a rapid increase to 10 I can not. As far as your last sentence, that is beyond socialistic it is communist. I do think that there are many people making far more money then they deserve. It used to be like 20-1 bosses to worker ratio for salaries. Now it is often 2000-1 and more which is disgusting. But being a free country that is the way it goes. Government regulation isnt the answer. Educated people who stand up and do something about it on their own is the only thing to do in a free country.
So there's that.
There has never been a net job loss from any minimum wage increase. Can you provide some evidence to back your contention that this time, unlike all the others, it would have the opposite effect?
