Minimum wage gap grows wider between states
By MIKE BAKER, Associated Press | December 31, 2012 | Updated: December 31, 2012 5:06pm

OLYMPIA, Wash.(AP)— With a bump in the Washington state minimum wage to $9.19 an hour, high school student Miranda Olson will edge closer to her goal of buying the black Volkswagen Beetle she's been researching online.

Olson is only able to pick up part-time hours working at a cafe after classes and on weekends. But the extra pennies she'll earn in 2013 will add up over the coming weeks and months.

"It's not much, but it's something," said Olson, 16, who works at Wagner's European Bakery and Cafe in Olympia. "Every bit helps."

Many workers around the country won't be as lucky as residents of Washington state, which is raising its minimum wage Tuesday by 15 cents an hour even though it already has the highest state baseline in the country.

But that money was already all spent on your alimony payments. It't that Walmart greeter job that pays all your bills.

It isn't really a lie, it's a deliberately ridiculous statement made about a low integrity ridiculous poster. You really can't get a raise if you don't have a job to begin with.

Mr low integrity poster calling people liars again. You have made multiple lies and character assassinations against other posters, but yet, you think you are a truthful well balanced individual. I hope that psych grad student studying your posts gets a judge to issue a bench order for an intervention soon before you hurt yourself.

Dangerous Sociopath,

As a poster that is either intoxicated or under medicated, why does it not bother you to come on here and post nothing but your "Projections" to other posters?

Everybody here knows how fauched up you are as a Defective Human Being. How come you and your Multiple Personalities are the only ones that consistently avoid ANY conversation that Threads are based on, and simply "work out your Mommy and Daddy issues" with strangers by "Projecting" yourself onto them with the variety of abuses you employ like a child on the Playground?

Do you "Feel" that nobody really knows what you are?

Your dangerous nature as a Psychopath needs to be addressed by Law Enforcement Professionals before you hurt others that may have the displeasure of contact with you outside your Fantasy World on Topix!

Funny how everyone but you is a "Dangerous Sociopath", "fauched up", has a "small dyck" and "Mommy and Daddy issues".

Given howe out of touch you were in November with American publican, I'd say it is YOU that is "Dangerous Sociopath", "fauched up", has a "small dyck" and "Mommy and Daddy issues".

It is just inductive reasoning, although it was possibly wrong.

Were anyone to employ you in Seattle, it would probably be someone deparate for help, seeing as how your sunny disposition precludes contact with the public. Most of those jobs pay minimum wage. Washington State just passed a $.15 per hour raise of the minimum wage effective January 1st, 2013. If you were employed, you would have just gotten a $.15/hour raise. I realize the fallacy of my reasoning now, as you are likely not employed.
