<quoted text>I remember in the 70's when minimum wage was under $2.00 hr. There was plenty of unemployment then. If you want to be honest, the auto workers have taken pay cuts over the last several years and some companies have opened plants in the south where the labor is much cheaper. The price of vehicles have still gone up.
The reason that the auto prices keeps going up is that they have to cover the costs of the unions that require a high wage. And then the union leaders take a cut from each member so they can fly around the country in private jets to let you know how good of a job they are doing for you. Not to mention they go to their mansions while you struggle to pay your mortgage. Unions had their place many years ago breaking the non payed overtime and workers rights such as allowing bathroom breaks as well as coffee breaks.

when the minimum wage goes up so does the cost of basic goods and services thereby giving everyone that makes more than minimum wage a pay cut, at least in the short term. imo minimum wage is no more than a political pawn.merit raises and skills and education will get you farther faster. if you make it $100 per hour it will still be the minimum, thereby keeping you at the bottom of the food chain, and once the economy resets to it, it still wont be enough to live on.only thing that really does is screw the elderly and others on fixed incomes.
everything else is going up anyway, might as well raise minimum wage to.

Last vehicle we bought was actually a dodge. And the '65 was bought about 10 years ago as project.

If it goes up it will hurt me, not help me, because everything would go up in price but I would not see an increase in pay. Now if I could get the same $1.75 raise it would not help, but it would not hurt.

The Old sixties cars are better in some ways. Their simple and dont have compuetors. You can diagnose & repair them without yourself a lot of expensive tools & equiptment. I drive mostly older vehicles my newest truck is a 72 with a big engine pulls a fully loaded goosneck trailer very easily and gets 14 mile to the gallon doing it. Old classic vechiles in good condition canbe found on EBAY & craigslist. You can buy & drive them and there is a ready market if you want to sell it. 1855 thru 1957 chevy,s sixties camaro,s chevelles, ford mustangs, dodge chargers, ply GTX & roadrunners, Pontiac GTO,s ect any 50,or 60,s Pk are a better investment than money in the bank or stocks &401K.
