For crying out loud all people want is to make the same amount the minimum wage paid when it was created relative to inflation, everyone knows to get the economy going more people need more money to spend instead if it all being hoarded up in banks and overseas.
I will never understand how conservatives have swallowed this notion that only the rich work hard, or that there are all kinds of great jobs out there. Even worse I can't understand that they know that places like Walmart want their employees to get on the government dole because of this but still won't see the simple logic of an actual living wage because it makes them understand that pure unchecked capitalism is not a way to save the nation, it's the surest way to destroy it.
Bravo good sir.... Well put and post of the thread.
Also they have been great at convincing their own lower middle class voters to think that increasing min wage will cause a great recession which is bull poo.
