I employ unskilled workers and they all make over ten dollars an hour. I can't get anyone worth hiring for any less. They will get on government assistance for anything less. If minimum wages raise ill have to stay quite a bit ahead of it in pay, so it will only cost my customers more for the services.
On the flip side my employees put out much more work ethics, work much harder. I have 4 employees doing the same job I would have to have 6 employees to do at minimum wage. I'm saving money in the long run.
What kind of hand-to-mouth company do you run down there in the sticks?

You are exploiting poor people. You need to support the system since it allows you to make money off the backs of others. You probably don't pay a bit of benefits or payroll taxes for these folks.

And the worker gets off of food stamps. Which is in no short supply since we have been using your method that past 4 years.

You fools for a thousand years there has been upper class and lower class. That cannot be changed for that is how it was meant to be. If you pay your workers much they expect more. Treat them humanely but let them remember they are not the same as you and must realize their station.

There will always be those who lead and those who follow. Only in America could absolutely anyone make their position in life. That's what made America unique and why the world wanted to come here. That is getting harder by the day with Obama. Obama is now trying to pick the winners and losers.

No unskilled worker deserves $9 per hour. In fact 90% of Rolla doesn't deserve it. Go to school and get some skills.
Why, cause you have everything that comes easier for you? Not all of us have that. First of all to go to College, you have to have money. BEFORE you go.. Meaning you'd have to get a part time job in order to do so. If you work, at all. Period. You deserve to get paid enough to pay the price of living. Life essentials. Not all of our parents are rich and pay for us to go to College, and get cars and pay for our gas. Its reality brother. AND.. Rolla on the other hand...Its not money from the job. Not all of us sell dope, when you get busted, don't drop the soap.

I work side by side with my employees. Yes any employer has to pay payroll taxes. I also think since the business is my 400,000 dollar investment I probably should be making money off the backs of the ones working for me. If the business go bust, who loses the most? For an employee making 10 dollars an hour, it costs the employer about 16 dollars an hour after paying unemployment, half of their SS, and workmans comp. I have talked to them about group insurance and they decline. They get 1 week of paid vacation, plus paid holidays.
Carlton, you seem to think a lot like the socialist president you helped get elected!!!!

You don't 'deserve' anything. It's that entitlement mentality that is killing America. You have to earn what make.

The real reason for his minimum wage hike is that many unions tie their salaries to minimum wage. Ie make 400-500% over minimum wage. It's a bone to the unions.
Fun thing is that my union hasn't raised it wages but 25% since 2000. And almost nothing since 2008, but union workers still believe the Democratic lie about unions. They keep you mad to vote for Democrats, but make excuses when Democrats are in power for not raising wages.
