Not dat I'm pissed 'bout dis, before I dismiss it, but who be payin' fo' dis an' why? How much do dis bus tour cost? How much is de driver paid? How can creeps and peeps afford to be media whores? Not to question their bus-tour enjoyment, but is this their tax-exempt, nonprofit or government employment? Are these PAC rats Democrats?

We have to promote our cities and country, Mr. Harrison. This one of the many ways it is done. Go Give America A Raise!!!!! I once worked on a program like this and it was so much fun.

Uh...I suspect that these bus rider sign whiner are promoting themselves and having fun, rather than promoting these shitty dim Dem loony lib cities; full of drop-out dumbasses who are outraged that they are only qualified for minimum wage.

Who is paying them?
People should consider these jobs starter jobs?
Remember Dems support unions and this is one reason factories closed and left America-they couldn't compete.
If they would raise the minimum to $10. plus a hour many of these businesses like fast food restaurants would close as people won't pay the higher cost for foods, etc. It happened on military already as fast food restaurants were closing when forced to pay those higher wages.

The goverment could prohibit stores and restaurants from raising their prices. That would be so easy. Both my grandkids want part time jobs to help pay for their never ending toys and gadgets. Both refuse to work for less than $10 an hour. I don' blame them. Why should they work like slaves and get paid peanuts while the business owner gets rich off their sweat. And they're just schoolkids!
Big dollar stores like Walmart & McDonalds should be forced to pay more. It could all be determined by the IRS and their earnings.

A dramatic minimum wage increase would actually damage our economy and kill American jobs!
That's what they are sayin!

Easy...and incredibly stupid. Price controls have been tried in the past. They don't work. I'll let you figure out why.
Tell the kids to find jobs that will pay them what their skills demand...not what they think the government says they are worth. Good luck with that, but the way.
Don't like the owner? Don't work for them. Otherwise, maybe you/they should whine less and take a risk to start a business risking their capital to reap the benefits. But, hey...that would take work. Something it sounds like your grandkids aren't willing to invest. Sounds more like they want things handed to them. Kind of how society is trending...a nation of whiners instead of doers.
Government school educated, I'm sure.
You think these big stores will simply eat the cost and pass the savings on to you? The IRS is the last group you want involved in determining anything.

Good comment L, they should be considered starter jobs. The unions is pushing this and this is their last dying gasp. How many good paying jobs left Ameerica due to union greed?

Starter jobs or not, folks ought to be looking to ways to attract, create, and supply above minimum wage jobs in the city of Dayton instead of moaning about raising wages to $10 an hour. When are people going to stop being the average and start going against the tide?

Me and my wife ought to work minimum wage jobs and have a nice life, me and my spouse with the kid and two cars and a house, that we pray for but can pay for, with vacations all over the nation and no worries or aggravations, and have fun and save for retirement and college funds, with clothes and toys and thrills and no medical bills.

I think the government can MAKE the big stores eat the cost and pass the savings onto the less fortunate 99%. Did you read 99%? Now, I am not talking about smaller businesses. The government should leave them alone. Business people turn in tax reports every quarter, so the government could easily track who is making how much and apply sanctions accordingly.
Yes, my grandkids are public school educated. Admittedly, they know more about two mommies per household, Asia and Africa than they do mathematics, English, and American history but if all school kids are on the same learning curve, what makes the difference?
Not all kids start out on the same level playing field. Raising the minium wage will encourage the disadvantaged to seek work. I know that for a fact. My grandkids won't work for less.
We're living on the west side of Dayton, so don't think I don't know how to kill two birds with one stone. Cutting corners on expenses and allowing my grandkids to experience diversity all in one fell swoop! Cheers!
