higher costs will likely hurt demand and jobs = inflation and recession.
$70.00 dollars a week is a lot of increased cost for raising the minumum wage $1.75 per/hr. If thats the case imagine what it will cost when the rest of us gets a raise.

Heaven forbid the Waltons give up a few dollars in earnings. They are only worth about twenty billion each (that's twenty thousand millions or $20,000,000,000.00). They need the money to pay their DWI fines. We wouldn't want the workers to earn enough to pay bills and buy food.

The Waltons could also say, "Hey, we have enough money. Lets just close down the WalMart corporation, live comfortably on what we already have and end this headache." Would you feel better then?

Why do we have troops in Europe and Britian / we should cut the military by 50% the wars of the future will be fought by drones and from above no boots on the ground
Also should pull all aid to foriegn countries - why are we sending money to Pakistan and Libya - its a bigger problem than entitlement to me
Drones are not new,we have never won a war with them and we wont win a war without boots on the ground,these drones that are being used are killing a lot of innocent women and children,besides we are not the only country that has drones,Obama has given 2 of ours to Iran.

I don't work at Walmart (I'm retired from a well paying job). I don't even know how much they make at Walmart. I was just using them as an example. The same principle aplies to all workplaces. My point is that any one willing to work should make a decent living.

Get out of here and you can get a living wage,the reason you feel that way is because you are a welfare case and a socialist,does this mean that everyone that has or owns a company or business should raise his cost to what ever he wants to make money regardless of what his cost is and he should tell you that you got to buy the best items i sell because this is the way i make money,if you want to set wages then lets set the prices,have price fixing,everyone in the country sells their product at the same price,one price for any product they sell accross the state of Ark.now does this sound good to you.

<quoted text>You make no sense at all. Don't you see that we are already subsidizing the low income population? We always have and always will, but if someone is willing to work they should be paid enough to live on. Then they will pay their own way and contribute more to the economy and pay more taxes. Everyone wins.
"Live on"some live on half of what others live on in fact most people that have worked do have some money,just because you make money does not mean you should buy everything you want or need,there will always be choices.

So are we really selfish enough that we don't want all workers to make a living wage because we want to save a buck or two every week? Do people not realize that we have to give these people tax money for help with food, rent, utilities and school? I say if they are willing to work instead of mooching we should want them to make more. If they make more won't they also spend more (and pay more taxes)? That, my friends, creates jobs.
If you are looking for a job i think the goverment is hiring,i think in one of those forgien countries Lybia i think,we lost 4 men there about 5 mounths ago.

The only reason that minimum wage is going to go up is so the government has more income they can tax. Gotta pay for Obamacare some how.

We freely give big raises to people who don't need it, which greatly increases the cost of living, but refuse to give small raises to who people who do need it, which raises the cost of living very little. This widens the gap between the the rich and the poor.

I dont know who you are or what your age is but you sound like a real looser,have you never worked or saved any money,people that have money dont get it give to them they save and only buy the things they have to have,your socialist ways are not going to work when Obama is gone,your welfare check will be over then,and yes they can take your checks away if they deem you able to work.
