Amazing - the drones and clownbots move right along with the Unions. A raise of a $1 in minimum
wage automatically adjusts union wages.

So here we go - dumb as craps can make everyone poorer but they can't make everyone richer

Just another sign of the times - dumb as craps!
Heres your sign

The Dems have a habit in reducing the value of a dollar. Raising the minimum wage does that. Just look at prices in the 60s'----- Increases of all products to today's prices were caused by Union demands and Democratic Legislatures increasing the minimum wage. The dollar is indeed worth much less today.$5.00 for a loaf of bread is almost here -----$7.00 for a gallon of fuel???

talking silly. The minimum wage has not kept up. There is no correlation.

The world is a different place - more corporate - more worldwide demand and competition and more manipulation of the financial markets that affects the price of everything.
Silly you

It is a well known fact that union wages are tied to minimum wage - when it goes up automatic
adjustment in rates.

Come on fool admit it - unions are just a bad idea!

Who's talking about the 40 hour work week, child labor worker safety etc, etc,? Raising the the minimum wage only screws the bottom entry level worker. If you are 30-40-50 and still earning the minimum, you are a idiot moron and deserve no more!

I would agree. The majority of people earning minimum wage are teenaged workers and not adults trying to support a family.

those who despise the people who do the work and who make their money on manipulating the financial system are the losers and the biggest drain on civil society. The war against worker representation and unions cooresponds to the decline of the middle class and the concentration of wealth and power in the 1%.

You union thugs are self serving. Taking hard earned union dues and making union head thugs rich with that money then sending the rest to left wing politicians in return for special union thug favors. In a union everybody is the same from the biggest slug to the hardest worker, all get the same treatment. What a pathetic life to live. Thanks to unions we have lost millions of jobs overseas..
