Will fast-food protests spur higher minimum wage?

Aug 5, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Northern Michigan News

Terrance Wise has two jobs in Kansas City - one at a burger joint, a second at a pizza restaurant - but he says his paychecks aren't enough to buy shoes for his three daughters and insure his 15-year-old car.

saying the wealthy don't pay their fair share of taxes is begging for their money...

you might as well go door to door in affluent neighborhoods asking for handouts, at least that way you'd be honest and eliminate the middleman...

I know this. I own 4 apartment buildings.

One is a bit upscale and is executive style lofts. That one so far is full and have been able to have very slight increases in rent every two years.

But my other 3 buildings are working class or lower income style. And on two I have had to lower rent just to keep them full.

As wages stagnate I have noticed for me my profit have gone down,also my friends who own small businesses have seen there profit go down do to lagging sales.

Business owners need customers who have money to spend. WHICH MEANS WORKING CLASS PEOPLE WITH MONEY TO SPEND.

you need to factor in all costs to those figures, food costs have dropped dramatically over those 40 years.

the middle class's standard of living has not dropped (outside of the recent major recession we had, when it is expected to do so)

your cries of the working class being oppressed are as effective as the Occupy wall street idiots protests were...

Food is way more costly now..Where do you live? You eat worms and grass??

Where have you been. 40 years ago a man could work 40 hours a week and support his wife and 3-4 kids and live good...today both man and wife work 40-50 hours a week and barely get by.....

you need to do some reading and learn..

Oh and once they have education where are those jobs? I know 10 people off top of my head with masters or bachelors degrees working minimum wage jobs.

So if people spend 30-60 k on education will jobs magically appear.?

You liar...Grow up. I am seriously gonna back you into a corner. YOUR LYING AND YOU KNOW IT..Food cost have went up so much it is stupid.

30 years ago in my area the average starting wage for factory work was $8 an hour....At that time 100 dollars would fill two carts full of food.....Today in same area average starting wage at a factory is $10 an hour and it takes 300 dollars to fill one shopping cart...

AGAIN YOUR LYING OR IGNORANT....

How does a welfare leech know???? I know it is not. In fact it is suffering. Yes I can keep units full as long as I keep rent down or lower it. SO NOT BOOMING.
