Why?! Not only does it hurt small businesses but it will raise prices even more. All it does is put more of a burden on the middle class.

He and Shelly Silver should both take a few Economics Courses. Raising the minimum wage will 1)Drive more businesses out of NY 2)Raise the unemployment rate 2) Raise the cost of living in NYS. Minimum wage is an entry level wage, when good workers get experience and exhibit a good work ethic they can be promoted to a hirer wage. This whole "Raise the minimum wage" movement will just inflate EVERYTHING and in the long run, we'll be paying $15.00 for a loaf of bread and $70,000 for a basic new car.

There are some policies that are pretty much no-brainers. We all agree that the Food and Drug Administration should keep dangerous drugs off the market. We all agree that the government should provide police and fire protection. And, we pretty much all agree that workers should be able to count on at least some minimal pay for a day's work.

The minimum wage is non-controversial. The vast majority of people across the political spectrum support the minimum wage. In fact, one of the big accomplishments of the Gingrich Congress in 1996 was a 22 percent increase in the minimum wage. The only real issue is how high it should be. There are good reasons for believing that the minimum wage should be considerably higher than it is today.

At the current rate of $7.25 an hour, a full-time year-round worker would have gross pay of less than $15,000 a year. This is less than half of what the average Fortune 500 CEO makes in a day. It would be hard enough for a single person to survive on this income, imagine trying to support a child or even two on this money. And, close to 40 percent of the workers who would be benefited by a minimum wage increase have kids.

Best thing about Cuome is his words are meaningless. Cuomo runs his mouth and does nothing. Typical Democrat, big mouth, little stick.

You should be happy about ten dollars an hour minimum wage, Penis Leech. It's ten dollars more an hour than you're making now. But Topix trolling will still pay zero. So it won't effect you at all.

Yeah...that's good genius! From what starting wage rate? What's your inflation index factor? What is your duration of time? You have no clue as to what you are talking about. Pure Pablum!

You'll have hamburg flippers making $30 k p/year....and people like you will squawking that they should be making 50k per year.

Hey bright eyes, Fla Governor Scott tried that STUPID F**king Idea. He told the Citizens of the State it would be cost effective, anyone who tested positive would have to pay for the test themselves.......7% tested positive, the State had to foot the bill for the other 93%
Nice Try!

What's the difference if the wage goes up,the prices of everything will go up also, so what's the difference.If more slobs have a little more to spend then supply goes down and prices go up.Its like food stamps keep food prices up because more slobs buy produce with these stamps and stores charge more.That's why I shop where there are less usage of food St amps because shoppers there are less likely to waste their good money and food doesn't move off the shelves as fast and prices go down.
