So, you're saying that the folks making minimum wage will be happier because everyone will be paying more? How exactly does that work? "Hey, Billy Bob, gas and cigs just went up $5/gal and another $4/pk. I sure am tickled that everyone is paying more for everything"? Your moniker is spot on, you MUST not be serious with this post.
NOT QUITE AS DUMB AS :"IF YOU GET A $ 3 RAISE IN PAY IT WILL HURT YOU!" now that is a jackass spruing meaningless crap for sure! Quit being upset over three measly dollars- you will learn to live with it (I hope).

Actually, I agree with you to the letter of your response. No one should GET a wage increase. If you minimally apply your talent, skill and effort you have earned minimal pay. If you have applied additional skill or effort or talent you have earned additional pay. I think that is completely fair. I grew up poor. I had numerous disadvantages in my life and I have applied myself and now earn more as I earned an education and now earn a wage that reflects that investment in myself.
I believe in God, I just don't think God has much to do with the increase in minimum wage. I absolutely believe in the divine but you seem to feel that God is responsible for every minute detail in your life. While that is one way of looking at things I prefer to take on a little personal responsibility. God did not guide me through college, if he had I'm sure I would have performed much better than I did, I was responsible for that. God was answering questions for me during my interviews for my current career opportunity, I also was responsible for that action.
If you choose to reject education that is your choice but don't believe that God has anything to do with it. You likely believe Jesus was blonde haired and blue eyed also. I really don't want get into a discussion on genetics and alleles as this discussion is still more or less on track but the chances that God's only son was not dark skinned and brown eyed are fairly thin. Please go pray for lunch or some other menial aspect of your life that you can attribute to God.
WOW! You are so forgetful aren't you ? See your above post ,you said you thought that I believe Jesus had blond hair and blue eyes. I answered I am a Jew so was He. I agree it has nothing to do with anything-BUT YOU STARTED THE SUBJECT. I JUST ANSWERED IT. Now you ask why I am discussing it?(Really feeble minded aren't you . Read your last post (YOU are still harping on it - Go look at your post asking this:(read bellow your question aka

HERE IS AKA"S QUESTION :
what does you being Jewish have to do with anything? What does you being Jewish have to do with what you believe Jesus looked like? You really aren't making much sense with this one
your joking

my toilet flushed this morning, praise the lord, Amen! I'm Lutheran.

Does this make more sense to you when discussing economics? Your responses illustrate the brilliance found nowhere else except in a sack of hair. So far, you have brought, God and 'it will make MW workers happy knowing everyone will be paying more' into a discussion about economics. I have pointed out how I believe it works and how the price of everything will increase. You prompt me to review past posts as if I don't already know you are a bible thumping idiot that is ether making minimum wage or has someone close to you that is, and yet, you believe I am the one that brought God into the discussion or the name of the faith by which you feel guides you. You ask me to explain things to you as if you were a child incapable of understanding how goods and services are valued and when I do you come back with God. That's really the issue I have with the faith blind. When faced with logic and fact your response is,'well, God said....' and you believe you have trumped all logic and common sense. It works in all discussions religious, oh wait, it doesn't even work there because there are different interpretations of The Word.

Now before you get your knickers in a bunch, I don't think there is anything wrong with having faith but having faith without education is just not the best idea. I know you believe that holy book has all the answers in life but that really isn't the case. Try reading one about economics if you would attempt to discuss economics.

Tell you what, I forget you brought God to the table you forget all the logic and economics I have brought and we start fresh? How do you believe raising minimum wage by $3/hr will NOT affect the price of nearly every good or service produced in this country? As a follow up, how do you think that the minimum wage earner will be better off once all prices increase?

"spruing"? Can't really rebut if you are just going to make up words as I have no idea what they are supposed to mean. I would also like to add, if you use quotation marks(that's the two little marks you put at the beginning and end of a group of words)it is better if the words in between are actually a QUOTE! Which post did I make the claim you cited here? I believe you probably should have used the single quote mark, as this would indicate to the others reading your stupidity that you are paraphrasing my words and not attempting to attribute the actual words to me.

Now, I'm sure you will say I'm being "knit picky" about what you wrote and you will most likely say something like,'you know what I meant' so I won't belabor the point but I figured as long as you intend on discussing a subject that seems beyond your grasp I would like it if you would at least use real words and actual quotes.

Having said that, I wonder if any of you so pro wage increase have considered the folks that WILL find it hard or impossible to live with the increase? Have any of you considered the millions living on a fixed income that will not be receiving additional income? Many of these folks struggle to make ends meet now. Do you believe they will also be better off after the increase?

Prices on goods and services have been steadily increasing before they started the MW increase discussions and Obamacare. Your argument is flawed.

not really, yes prices fluctuate and yes, overall they have increased and will continue to do so BUT that statement doesn't mean that a $3/hr wage increase will not affect pricing.

Your statement is similar to saying, the Mississippi River flows all the time so the increase water added to the system during spring thaw and thundershowers should not exacerbate that flow.

No one has yet commented with any thoughts considering the elderly on this issue. Where is the Christian "Love" on this issue? Where is the person that said,'yeah, well people will be happier when everyone has to pay more'?

Another issue no one has chimed in with, what about the people that started out at minimum wage and have earned a pay increase either through production or merit? Do you suppose that when MW is increased they will continue to make that much more than their counterparts that just started or have not excelled?

I have been respectful to those that were respectful to me. I have answered your questions and explained the situation as I see it yet I have not received answers to my questions. When I asked how someone expects the price of goods and services not to rise while the costs associated with the delivery of those same goods and services increase I have been called an idiot but no answer was forthcoming.

I would like to thank several of you. You have provided me new insight into the subject of this thread, Wisdom. I still believe she does much of the things she does for attention but I have seen in the past folks attack her with nothing more than 'you're wrong because'. I will never agree with much at all that Wisdom has to say about anything really I can at least appreciate that she is invested in what she believes and informed on opinions that support she stance. Sure, she will copy and paste you into oblivion without really reading or understanding something sometimes but have any here done even that much? Have any of you found any published article that refutes any thing I have said? Is there any economist that is willing to publish a statement refuting a wage increase will precipitate a cost hike on everything?

I recognize that this is Faux news and therefore suspect but I thought I would share. If anyone has a comment I would welcome it.
In summary, the idea is put forth by Democrats and applies only to Federal Contractors.

Poignant info on ObamaCare- from Wall St. Journal

There is plenty of material in today’s Congressional Budget Office report about the impact of the Affordable Care Act. Here are five key takeaways.

1. The law was always going insure relatively few people in 2014, but the rough rollout of HealthCare.gov and some of the state websites mean that those numbers are even lower.

The Congressional Budget Office previously projected that 7 million people would obtain coverage through the insurance exchanges in 2014, and that’s now down to 6 million. CBO also thought 9 million more people would sign up for Medicaid (a combination of people who became newly eligible in states expanding their programs and people who already qualified but hadn’t enrolled) and that’s now down to 8 million.

2. There will still be a lot of uninsured people in 2024.

CBO puts the numbers for participation in the exchanges and Medicaid in 2015 and beyond at the same as they were before the launch of HealthCare.gov last fall. In 2015, for example, there should be 12 million people in Medicaid and 13 million getting insurance in the exchanges, and that will tick up to 12 million in Medicaid and 22 million in the exchanges in 2016, CBO says. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be uninsured people — a lot of them — in 2024. CBO estimates that over time the law will reduce the number of uninsured by 25 million, compared to what would have happened otherwise, but there will still be 31 million people without coverage in each year from 2021.

3. The federal government will pay less in premium subsidies in 2014; consumers will get less in subsidies but premiums will be lower.

The federal government will be subsidizing the premiums of a significant majority of people in the exchanges — five million out of six million in 2014, and 19 million out of 24 million in 2024. The cost of those subsidies will be lower than expected initially, CBO says, because premiums in 2014 have come in about 15 percent lower than previously estimated. We’ve explained previously why this happened – insurers bid low for the first year but did a number of things to make plans cheap, including high-deductibles and narrow networks.->->-> The effects for the government are that they pay less in subsidies.->->->The effect for consumers is that some of them whose income makes them eligible for subsidies will get less than they might have expected, including in some cases, subsidies with a value of $0. It’s not clear what will happen to premiums in subsequent years, because insurers are largely guessing at this point about the cost of covering people who haven’t previously had insurance, and when they can no longer charge medically risky people more.( Higher deductibles, higher co-pays.)

4. The health law does a lot of different things to the labor force, but the net effect is a reduction in full-time employment of about 2.3 million full-time equivalent jobs in 2021.

CBO figures that some people will choose to work fewer hours, because of various incentives in the law. Older workers in particular might feel that they don’t need to keep full-time jobs to easily be able to get health coverage ( YOU GET LIBERATED FROM YOUR JOB AND THE MONEY THAT COMES WITH IT- YOUR TEAT IS NOW READY FOR YOU.)
. Some might find that they’re better off working fewer hours because a smaller paycheck might qualify them for Medicaid or a more valuable income-based subsidy towards the cost of their premiums. There’s a long-running debate about whether hours are being cut for workers because of the penalties that employers will face starting in 2015 for failing to cover employees who work 30 hours a week or more. CBO says there could be changes but that right now>>> “there is no compelling evidence that part-time employment has increased as a result of the ACA.”
PRAYER FOR NATION

What logic aka did you bring ?(It is no better than the ones I copied and posted,by the way it is from experts ,not me).(Because your or my opinion means nothing.) You might not pray over thing ,but I and millions do. Read below:
National Day of Prayer in United States
Quick Facts
National Day of Prayer is held on the first Thursday of May each year, inviting Americans of all faiths to pray for the country and its leaders.
What do people do?
Through the efforts of the National Day of Prayer Task Force, more than 35,000 prayer gatherings will be conducted by about 40,000 volunteers across the United States. Several million people are expected to participate in this call to prayer. Some celebrities, such as popular musician and Grammy Award winner Ricky Skaggs, will join millions of Americans in praying for the nation.
Other events in various communities across the United States may include: choirs and bands performing songs relating to prayer; community prayer breakfasts or luncheons; daytime prayer walks; and evening worship and prayer services or gatherings. National Day of Prayer is a time for people of all faiths to pray together in their own way.
Public life
National Day of Prayer is not a public holiday. Schools, post offices, stores and other businesses and organizations are open as usual. Public transport services run to their usual schedules and no extra congestion on highways is to be expected.
Background
In 1775 the Continental Congress allocated a time for prayer in forming a new nation. Over the years, there have been calls for a day of prayer, including from President Abraham Lincoln in 1863. On April 17, 1952, President Harry Truman signed a bill proclaiming the National Day of Prayer into law in the United States. President Reagan amended the law in 1988, designating the first Thursday of May each year as the National Day of Prayer.
The National Prayer Committee was formed in the United States in 1972. It went on to create the National Day of Prayer Task Force, with the intended purpose of coordinating events for the National Day of Prayer. According to the Legal Information Institute, the President shall issue each year a proclamation designating the first Thursday in May as a National Day of Prayer on which the people of the United States may turn to God in prayer and meditation at churches, in groups, and as individuals.

PS- freedom of speech-ever hear of it? I pray over everything , as do millions of others who pray for our country and leaders. And I bought lots of logical points to the post- copied from the experts stating MW increase will stimulate the economy; but you & wisdom keep posting the opposite-which is your right. My right is to say I pray that God helps the MW wage to pass. AND LET ME REMIND YOU ,aka,that you started the "how Jesus looks " I do not know nor care . You know ,you just might even pray your toilet would flush if the water lines burst ,as it has in several places because of the weather ! Sure people will work to restore the water,but many will pray as they do so. Got a problem with that aka?
U people quit arguing

Raising the federal minimum wage to $10.10 per hour would boost pay for more than 30 million low-wage workers. According to an analysis by the nonpartisan Economic Policy Institute, 88 percent of these workers are adults over the age of 20; 85 percent work more than 20 hours per week; and 43 percent have at least some college education. The minimum wage is also a staple of support for many families: more than 15 million children in the U.S. have a parent who would benefit from raising the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour

The most rigorous economic research over the past 20 years shows that raising the minimum wage boosts worker pay without causing job losses – even in regions where the economy is weak or unemployment is high. A recent study by the Center for Economic and Policy Research reviews the past two decades of research on the impact of minimum wage increases on employment and concludes that “the weight of the evidence points to little or no effect of minimum wage increases on job growth.” In February, leading mainstream economists polled by the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business backed raising and indexing the minimum wage by a more than 3 to 1 margin, saying that the benefits outweigh any costs. Similarly, 67% of small business owners support raising and indexing the minimum wage as shown in an April poll, which indicated that the majority believe it will help the economy.

The National Employment Law Project is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization that conducts research and advocates on issues affecting low-wage and unemployed workers. For more about NELP, visit www.nelp.org or www.raisetheminimumwage.or

Freedom of speech? really? Do you think I somehow kept you from speaking your mind? I certainly haven't called the police and had you picked up for saying dumb stuff. Just because someone disagrees with what you or anyone says and then says something contrary to your position doesn't mean your freedom of speech is violated. So pray about it if you need to but don't be silly and yell freedom of speech.

As far as who prays and who doesn't, what does that have to do with anything? Stay on topic. If you want to talk about the number of people that pray or to whom they pray or even what manner their prayer feel free to start a separate thread, I certainly will not comment. My relationship with God is personal and for me I care not to discuss it with you or on a public forum. I just don't feel the need.

I've said it like a half dozen times but maybe I was unclear. I didn't say that raising the MW would or would not cause job loss or gain. I did say that MW increase will increase prices, I really see no other possibility. I believe the increase will raise prices and while "the poor" will have more money those millions living on fixed incomes will not. I've asked a few times what you "pro raise" folks think about that and still nothing. I've asked a few times if anyone has heard that the intended "raise" is only going to federal contractors for now and general public maybe sometime in the future and still nothing.

Say what you like but I at least try to participate, I try to respond to questions. When someone asked me how a person making $100k yearly doesn't affect the cost of everything but a everyone making $3/hr more will. Sure they were simplistic and rudimentary but I try to make it so people can understand.

I am neither for nor against minimum wage increase. But I would like for you to explain why someone being paid $100,000 will not effect pricing,but someone being paid $7.35 will ?

By the way why tell us you are Lutheran ? I have seen a lot on your

post putting down prayer. I believe this person was referring to your over anxious commentary on their praising God.(Maybe ,you might benefit from thinking before posting .)

Exactly! AKA your logic is the one terribly flawed. Someone making $100k increases services and goods just the same. How do you think those Apple products got so expensive?? Executives and skilled talent demand very high salaries in competitive markets. Like I said, no common sense on here displayed by you or others against MW increase. For example: X works at a factory in let's say Louisville. X DEMANDS a salary of $125k for his skill set. You really don't think those skilled labor costs are passed on to the consumer? If its a car part factory that X works at the costs will go up on the car parts made in that factory to absorb the demanded wages. I'm all for skilled labor. All for education but dont pretend like only MW workers impact the economy when they get raises. When large corporate execs make $40-80 million a year? Nothing wrong with paying your execs that if your payroll affords it and they can produce large profits but when you dont pay the low-wage workers an increase after sales rocket then you can't blame anyone but corporate greed for the tremendous gap created within the workforce. Small business owners don't comply with Obamacare anyway, those with less than 50 employees so they aren't paying anything for healthcare to their low-wage earners. These employees have zilch in benefits so all the small business owners are gonna do is raise prices a little to offset it...again nothing coming out of their pocket. Prices have been increasing dramatically over the years and this is why MW increase is even being debated right now!!! Your argument is riddled with holes and gaps. It costs a corporation 2 to 3 times as much to employee a skilled worker and believe me those costs are passed along to consumers as well.

Thank you ,finally someone with some sense. I can not understand how so many people do not conceive the fact that all employees wages affect the product being sold. Especially the ones on the higher wage scale.

The person make 100K is more valuable to the running of a business, has more innate abilities and talents than a minimum wage individual. Thus, he has earned a salary increase because he brings value to the company which will raise it sales, productivity or lessen costs by his talents.
Earned it, a mandated salary increased is really an unfunded mandate to the employer who has no say in the forced rate increase in salary for no reason- no increased value to the business has been presented through this increased cost.

So are you going to work 33% harder, 33% greater productivity, 33% greater sales? NO. You will have done nothing to improve yourself, improve business productivity or reduced costs. If you have a low skill set there is no comparison between the advantage you bring to a business versus someone who commands 100K.

Sorry, life is tough. You get paid what you are worth and the skills you bring to the market.

I see wisdom is still degrading and writing offensive post about the poor.I will give aka credit,he does not belittle the poor.
The point is you are paying for his/her $100,000 income when you purchase or receive the service wisdom.. I hope someday that all people quit minimum wage jobs,all have 4 plus year degrees and all businesses have to hire these people and pay top dollar . Wow ,wisdom ,you can feel good then because even though a loaf of bread will be $10 ,you know that they deserve the large pay checks. It will happen,MW workers are fed up with your kind- they are striking,they should all quit,go home draw food stamps(they draw them now even though they work !) And go to college!
you got it wrong

hate to keep you waiting, life and all, but I already explained it. I could copy and paste and spoon feed it again if you really need me too OR you could just look through the thread.

to sum it up, you are right and you are really wrong. YES, a person making $100k does drive up SOME prices but not the price of everything. I fish with an eye surgeon, he has a very very nice house and a 34ft boat with 3 engines on it. Having him do surgery on me will probably cost me more than a big mac and fries but if his fees go up the big mac meal is going to cost the same. I really don't want to go through the whole thing again.
