People who are working the low wages, worker [HARDER} than they get paid. Most people who work pay finaical bills at home dosn't meet the standards of how they get paid. As times gets harder. Employers dosn't want to give raised to those who work hard for more than 10 yrs. Minium wages is not suitable for the economic growth in our state

You claim that minimum wage is holding workers back???...well clearly you dont kno the point of minimum wage or the situation...Now i dont like minimum wage...really what it does is defy the capitalist (our economy) purpose...i believe that a job should have a wage for what evr that job is worth...if a paper route is worth a dollar an hour then i believe that the paperboy or girl shouyld be paid a dollar for there work...BUT...BUT...BUT...I understand that minimum wage helps workers in the exact opposite way in which you discribe it in your first round...You claim that it prevents them of getting raises and it should be abolished...If it weren't for minimum wage then those employers would be paying the hard workers even less...if you got your way then those hard workers would make even less then what they already make...leading to poverty and famine...O.K....So if you were to make it illegal it would have the opposite effect from what you think...

I understand what your saying about financial needs but banning minimum wage would make those problems worse...Minimum waqge is the only thing stopping employers from paying workers a dollar a hour...this is why minimum wage is essential for workers in the hole...to dig them selves out they need minimum wage to stop there employers from paying even less

The real problem is that if the minimum wage goes up, so does everything else. Big business says if you are making more money, then you have more money to give, but in reality minimum wage can't keep up with inflation.

A trained chimp who has an elementary grasp on economics knows that when the government sets a price floor (in the case of labor, a minimum wage) it creates excess supply. What this translates to in labor is that people who lack skills have to compete against people who have higher skills (since more people than otherwise would be drawn to the job with an inflated wage). How do I know this? IT'S FU*KING MATH. The next time some sh*t-wit republican or democrat tells me we need a minimum wage to keep people from making a dollar an hour, I am going to punch them in the face.

I don't' know anybody who works for minimum wage, hell my first job paid more than minimum wage. If you have friends
who work for minimum wage, you need to get new friends, they are going to hold you back.

you are right with your point of view about: paperboy,paid less,job should have a wage. Go beyond what we see as low paying jobs, eariler i mentioned about finiaical needs. people who are living under the poverty line can't get the full benifits from minimum wage while they are living in choas of bills,bills,bills with no higher education.going back on should be illegal we can make a descison of what course of job you are taking which should make the wages a salary to be able to feel like an middle class. Con you have a strong view of point in i agree with you. both as we both living in the world of stress in crisis to balance our life. there have to be a change.
