These minimum wage jobs should go to those entering the work force for the first time. High School students being trained to work. They are not for people from other countries with many children. They don't need $12. an hour.

True, entry level jobs are just that, they are not meant to raise a family on. Only the low information voter would believe that hooey.

That would be an acceptable compromise. Unfortunately, the democrat party would then cease to exist. I think it was John 5:27, that said: You can't fix stupid. Or was that Ron White..........
teahadist crackheads figured out they can earn a living wage by being elected to congress. Expect the cliffsnotes instructional guide from trey trey soon.

Twelve bucks an hour would be ok if they could get out of bed in the morning, show up, their minds wern't occupied with the design of their next tat or bead, and they could leave all their electronic s--t at home. I ain't paying anyone that spends eight hours tweeting the smell of their own farts.

$30K a year is low income in America today, so $15.00 and hour isn't a wage to help raise a family on. Unless you can survive eating on Tues, Thursdays and every other Saturday

What about the Blue collar worker who is currently making $12 an hour? Are they going to bump them up to $18 an hour or just create an even larger lower class? I'm betting on even lower. Just the way Odumbo wants them.

You simply can't get through to the ones here consistently posting basically the same nonsense.

Were they to have a calamity, were they to be one of the millions who lost gainful employment, with jobs in their particular field of expertise to never come back again, they would think quite differently.

They think people actually choose to work in their 40's, 50's, and 60's, at either a fast food place or a Wal Mart? The very thought that these people want to be in this position is ludicrous.

Pay no mind to Dumbo - no one here does. Dumbo is a woman who lives in a welfare state - Oklahoma - so don't be fooled by "Location Hidden" - we all know this bimbo - it's been here chanting nonsense for a long time.

Dumbo may ask you about your gerbil next - one of its fantasies.

No they didn't choose to, but due to Obama's inexperience and stupidity put them there. trying to make communism work after so many failures just goes to show the boys elevator don't go to the top.

It never was meant to raise a family on. Go to planned parent hood.........there great on planning, but low on morals. Since low information voters are the ones wanting free rides, it's not a surprise that you don't want to educate yourself into a better life and wage, you continue to think you are owed a living to set on your butt with a degree in flea puberty and become a shinning star in the world of lunatics.

Please consider either returning to the country you illegally slithered out of or if you are legal please go to one of these countries and devote your life to helping these poor folk. Don't volunteer my aid to these trespassing individuals (tax monies) without my permission. Keep god out of it. There are churches in Mexihole!!! You have your calling now nut.

So if minimum wage goes up $4, does that mean my boss wont mind pushing my pay up $4? Ohh you mean that because minimum wage is now worth $4 an hr more that my skilled job is now worth $4 hr less? Thats what will happen. Those of us who make over $12 now have less buying power and not to mention prices will rise now that every grocery store bagger, fry cook and gas station attendant just got a $4 raise. But dont tell that to a liberal, they think the local donut shop/pizza shop owner makes billions and will absorb that raise instead of passing it to his customers. We will see that again, in the end, the libs were wrong. raise the min wage? yes.$4? No.

Funny it seems there are plenty of (seeing as though you like immature name calling)"libtards" in congress who have made a fortune in DC. But you didnt mention that it applies for both parties... Hmmmm.... Bias?
