If I got a couple of guys working for me...Curly just started and has no experience....so I pay him $8 an hr.....Larry has been around a while and is semi-skilled....so I pay him $10 an hr....Moe has been with me forever, and is a highly skilled and dependable employee....so I pay him $15 dollars an hr.....Now here comes the Fed and says I have to pay a minimum of $15 an hr....Curly only works 4 days a week, gets drunk and doesn't show up half the time....Larry and Moe start screaming "That ain't fair and now want $18 and $25 an hr.....But the leftroids keep saying there is no wage-push spiral.... Right!!!

The legitimate business world is dirty politics, intrigue, etc, Take my word for it.

places like Mississippi can not sustain a minimum wage increase to $30k/yr

this is the socialists goal. make it unaffordable through regulation and inflation for businesses to operate autonomously. then the state can come in as saviors and confiscate the means of production for the wellbeing of the community. all along laying the blame at the feet of the greedy capitalist.

this is why we are hearing very little about Venezuela, this was by design. a short experiment if the results are favorable it will be the next move here. the currency is unsustainable and the bubble is sure to burst.

Pay hamburger flippers fifteen dollars per hour and when the hamburger costs ten dollars people will fry their own hamburgers at home. They are pricing themselves out of the market. Stupid is as stupid does, Forest Gump.

Jim Gorn, I’m assuming that you are a proponent of free COMPETITIVE enterprise. If your enterprise cannot compete with other USA enterprises, why do believe it should remain in business?

I assume the enterprise your post is referring to receives some net benefits or will suffer some penalties if they do not continue paying the federal minimum rate. The tone of your post leads me to suspect that you and that enterprise are not particularly altruistic.

Is your enterprise doing something wrong? Are other USA enterprises more able to compete? Maybe you and/or your enterprise shouldn’t be in business?

Respectfully, Supposn
Thanks from imaginethat

Twisted Sister, The federal minimum wage, (FMW) rate is of net social and economic benefit to our nation. It has never been among the major causes of the U.S. Dollar’s inflation; on the contrary it’s certainly among inflations’ victims.
No individuals are poorer and no enterprises suffers any competitive disadvantage to any USA enterprises due to the FMW rate.

[there’s no doubt that USA’s higher wage rates are a cause of our products’ price disadvantages in comparison to products from lower wage nations; but although the elimination of our FMW rate laws would be greatly detrimental to our nation’s net social and economic wellbeing, eliminating it would accomplish extremely little to remedy our products’ global price disadvantages].

I suppose a majority of USA’s population, (significantly more than a 10% plurality) to some extent approve of federal minimum rate’s existence. There are few among wealthy or competent people that are opposed to the federal minimum rate.
An overwhelming proportions of minimum rate opponents lack self-esteem. They need whatever affirmation of their own worth that they can derive by being able to look down upon people experiencing lesser financial conditions. They cannot acknowledge or admit to themselves their fears of improving the financial conditions of others would consequentially reduce their own social status.
That’s the essence of personal and political opposition to the FMW rate.

Respectfully, Supposn

Uh yeah, people started to object to those specific company's low wages, some even started boycott's. Boycotts & bad press = loess profits.
Dude to that pressure they raised wages. A company NRVRT willingly does anything that lowers profits.
If raising wages costs them less money that customer boycotts and genera ill will and bad press then they will raise wages.
Consumer activism may be more effective than political activism. Nothing more important than money to a company, it's their blood.

Toto2, to some direct extent every employee and employees’ dependents, and indirectly every person to the extent that they indirectly benefit from the federal minimum rate’s net contribution to USA’s economy or they indirectly net benefit from the many enterprises that themselves indirectly net benefit from the federal minimum rate’s net contributions to USA’s economy.

Here's some sound advice....Stop assumin!!'....It's economics 101...You raise wages ( a cost of doing business) you eventually raise the cost of goods sold, which fuels inflation (for every body, even those on fixed income)......Which means Curly, Larry and Moe will need another raise and repeat the cycle...
Thanks from Sabcat
