Why isn't the Minimum Wage $22 an Hour?

Most recent one: Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2007: The Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2007 is a US Act of Congress that AMENDED THE FAIR LABOR STANDARDS ACT OF 1938 to gradually raise the federal minimum wage from $5.15 per hour to $7.25 per hour. Yea so... happens all the time huh? smh.  (Mar 21, 2013 | post #63)

pew study finds 85% of msnbc is opinion based journalism

Listen to the facts/evidence from which they derive their opinions and come up with your own. With the frequent exception of Fox, all news outlets will share these. Non-issue, this is.  (Mar 21, 2013 | post #6)

The problem with a government mandated minimum wage hike is that it WILL put certain companies (those that simply cannot afford to pay their employees such an increase) out of business. Still other more profitable yet stingy companies may be shut down by their rich overseers out of fear to lose a penny of their already insurmountable wealth. American Capitalism has almost reached its breaking point. The more money the rich get, the easier it is to get more, and furthermore, the easier it is to just let that money sit in a bank where it never again sees our economy. It's a simple issue, but finger-pointing has blurred the picture. I have no contempt for the wealthy. I just see things for what they are.  (Mar 21, 2013 | post #59)
