Actually everything you have stated is false. Try again.
What, the wiki links don't prove one thing the guy said wrong.
More like you can't prove it wrong and are taking empty swings.

You do have one of the smallest malls. Degraded roads, lines.

It's not up to me to prove anything wrong. Here you go...your moms a wh ore. Now prove me wrong.
People on topix can see what a joke you are.

You post links that don't prove anything, you post a link to house prices, useless.

Why don't you post proof how each post I made was wrong, you've been googling for empty posts, poor thing can't find a link to prove it wrong. You went searching for empty links, come on used car man, find the proof.

Awww poor used car man.

You do have some wonderful degraded roads, the smallest tourist mall in the USA.

I so wish we had the smallest tourist mall in the USA.

Degraded roads, lines.

OMG, I am so jealous of that dripping rusted garbage bridge you have over the Mohawk river on 87.

OMG dripping rust gets me horny.

When you're trying to get paint donations for the line you might want to add the bridge to the list.

There are town's that make you look like the welfare trash, but I don't see them sitting in mom's basement posting on topix how they have more tourist malls.

You need help, and a real job so you can get a life. Only trash sit around knocking other towns.

Misters Bodhisattva, Truth Dig, XPat, Utica 34 and whom ever else you pretend to be,

I slogged through many comments but I never once saw a comment or argument that proved me wrong.

Pal, er, pals er whatever is the proper way to address an insane entity,

Please explain how raising the cost of doing business doesn't raise the cost of living for my customers.

You can't.

If I am wrong please tell me how I am wrong.

Or are you and your schizoid alter egos stumped.

That is why you haven't proffered a good counter argument because you can't.

Some one brighter would have at least tried.

Please explain to me how raising the minimum wage forces the business owner to raise prices? The market will only pay what the market will bear. Maybe small business owners or bigger business will have to cut into corporate profits or bonuses to remain competitive? You do realize the US population is about 315 million people. Only 1.7 million people earn minimum wage...another 2.2 million earn less. Please tell me how the 1.7 million people being paid minimum wage will have this dramatic effect on the US economy with a nominal raise? Please tell me how this segment of worker is supposed to survive with inflation? Also please tell me why the cost of doing business has still gone up without the minimum wage going up resulting in inflation?

This whole mind thought is nothing but a scare tactic for the people against raising the minimum wage without a leg to stand on. If there was no increase of the cost of business or inflation that happened since the last time the minimum wage was raised the theory may hold water for me...but since it did happen I think its BS.

75 cents to take effect next year, what a joke. That is considering it should be double what it is now. My scumbag boss doesnt pay me minimum but also doesnt pay me for the work i do and who gets all that contract money? He does and i should be payed for the work i do cut and dry but not in ny.

Where you two been theres a certain group of ppl who have not worked for about 100 years now and probaby wouldnt work if minimum was 12 bucks an hour. Why work if you can get everything handed to you and hustle the system?

You're right. There is a certain segment of the population that won't work even if a job offered 12 bucks an hour for them...I'm more concerned with the segment of the population that is willing to work right now for minimum wage. Those people are not quitters. They're not leeches on society. They go to work and are paid the minimum by law.

I wonder what would happen if all minimum wage workers at once just said screw it and left their jobs?

Then you'd have a whole bunch of job prospects. It sure would be great if you STFU.
