    ...Michigan.

    It amazes me how monumentally stupid some people are.

    In this economy, with the highest unemployment rate in the country, and no prospects there of improvement any time soon...they come up with....



    ....raising the minimum wage to $10/hour.

    Yeah. THAT'LL start up some industry.

    Someone democrat on the national level should swoop in and help these guys understand basic (I mean REALLY basic) economics.

    If stupidity were a crime, these guys would be in for life.

    Clearly, you haven't been watching California's budget battles in the legislature. :thumbs: Their anwer to the budget crisis is to raise taxes. Yeah, that will certainyl help the CA economy right now. We've now got the highest paid teachers in the nation, the highest paid prison guards, the highest sales tax, highest gas taxes, and one of the highest vehicle license fees. And don't even get me started on the business taxes.
