Did all liberals skip Economics in college? If you raise the minimum wage to say $20/hr, do you think that people will be better off and can buy more for their families? NO!!! Simple. The law of supply and demand. When people have more spendable income prices go up. When employers pay out more wages the costs are passed to the consumer by raising prices of their goods and services. If minimum wage went up to $20/hr then prices would triple and the poverty level would triple and then $20 would not be enough. Folks, raising the minimum wage will never stop. The cost of living will keep pace and keep people poor. Who it hurts the most are skilled workers that actually make $20/hr now. Every time minimum wage goes up their pay stays the same but the cost of living goes up. Minimum wage is a sham used by Democrats to get the votes of poor people. But it still keeps them poor. I forgot to mention that every time minimum wage is rasied, the value of the dollar shrinks on the world market, and forces us to borrow even more money to cover the interest on our past borrowing when the dollar was worth more. We end up losing in international trade, and increasing the money we have to pay on our debts because our dollar is worth less. Minimum wage is bad for everyone, rich and poor alike, and most importantly our nation as a whole.
