  1. So much misinformation… the wage hike leads to a stronger economy. It is proven that supplier side economics does not work so legislation is necessary. The problem is that the wages were so low for so long that the raise was far too abrupt. The economy needs time to adapt; prices go up with regards to wages and everyone (even those business owners) is better off.

  2. This is the reason why many corporations are fast tracking Automation. Things such as the self check out terminals. The Walmart in my town has added eight of these self check out terminals. This action alone has eliminated eight jobs…meaning eight people will be looking.

  3. Half the country earns less then $15 an hour. I can’t think of a bigger economic boom to the economy then to give a pay raise to half the country. More money in their pockets means more money to spend on goods and services.

  4. I've lived in Seattle since 1970 and I gotta say, from my own observation the economy is booming here like never before. Restaurants are full and there are actually people out downtown in the evening. We've never been so prosperous. The downside is that fewer and fewer people can afford to live here. Personally, I'm glad the people at the bottom have a little more money in their pockets. The wage bump has hardly made a ripple. People like to bitch but in a couple of years, no one will even be talking about the minimum wage.

  5. We have been discussing minimum wage laws for generations. The debate usually starts with, “If $15 an hour is good, wouldn’t $20 be better?”
    Answer from the left is, “sure it would be better!”
    If $20 would be better, why not $30 an hour?”
    At this point the response is at first a blank look, then “Yeah, sure it would.”
    “If $30 an hour is better…” At some point the liberal will say, “Wait. You’re getting ridiculous.”
    And at that point, usually a growing understanding comes to the liberal. And he or she immediately changes the subject. 🤔

  6. Bernie sanders and Pelosi are super rich, they have never worked in businesses, and have no idea what their regulations do to businesses. Forced income raises increase prices. These higher prices will hurt the retired people on fixed incomes, AND the newly unemployed due to the new minimum wage.
    Minimum wage is a starter job income, not what you are still getting when you retire! People like PRETEND SOCIALIST Bernie Sanders who recently bought a $600,000 mansion, is really a capitalist where his personal money is concerned! He sure bamboozled all his supporters!

  7. The unions pay people and costs for all of these protests because now that they've run manufacturing out of the country, what else is left? The service industry. People need to wake up and realize that we have a LOT more soviet/communist minded people in America than they can possibly imagine. By the time an average kid graduates high school today, they will have been taught that communism/socialism is great and capitalism is the root of all evil.

  8. The champions for this HUGE wage are the welfare recipients who no longer qualify for assistance and now want a higher wage to make up for their lose. Mind you being lazy and not actually doing something about your laziness DOES NOT and SHOULD NOT be awarded when you are 40 years old doing jobs 16 year olds can do!

  9. If a business fails due to minimum wage, it was not profitable anyway.
    Who is this jackals. 7:50 an hour is not enough to rent a stuio apartment,much less eat,or pay ins.
    There are no other rings you fucking idiot.

  10. The people that complain about wanting a "Livable Wage" should go live in a different part of the world where people live in a dump yard and dig through trash-bags to find food to feed their kids that week… They should go live in a part of the world where people save up for 10 years so they can buy a single junky old flip-phone…. But look at you! you want to live in a house with AC, with heating, with 3 meals a day, funds to go out to eat, TV, computer, electricity, plumbing, free education, opportunity for food stamps, welfare, free housing, you name it! You fucks don't know shit about the difficulty the majority of mankind goes through and yet you sit there wanting to live a life of luxury working a job that requires no skill that any of those other people working tirelessly for no pay, who live in far worse conditions than yourself would be capable of doing better. They would work exceedingly harder than you, they would work overtime with no pay if they had to, they would try as hard as they can to prove they deserve the job, they would do everything they could to provide the best customer service possible if it was in the job description. They would be greater employees in every single way than the entitled fucks like yourself who don't give a damn about how you perform at your job… You think you deserve $15 dollars an hour working minimum wage but in reality you don't "deserve" shit! You protest for an increased wage while forgetting how lucky you are to even have your voice heard, how lucky you are to even have free speech. Yet the majority of you want to take that very same free speech away. You would rather put your fellow employees on the street if it means you would earn more money. Business cant afford pay that many people with a wage that high, but you don't care! You don't care if all your fellow employees are forced to lose their jobs so you can get payed, because in the end, if you don't give a damn about the people who have it harder in every other part of the world then there's no reason for you to give a damn about anyone, including those you work with or the people who will suffer because of this idiotic policy.

  11. WHAT A LOAD OF HORSESHIT
    THE RICH ARE FULL OF SHIT LIES
    RAINING THE MINIMUM WAGE DO NOT MEAN YOU HAVE TO RAISE ALL OTHER WAGES YOU FUCKING ASSHOLE DONKEYS

    SO THE GREEDY REPUBLICANS CAN JUSTIFY FIRING MORE POOR PEOPLE
    GREEDY CORPORATIONS DO THAT WITHOUT ANY INCREASE IN WAGES ANYWAYS. THEY SCREW EVERYONE THEY CAN
    YOU FUCKING LIARS.
    THE BOTTOM LINE IS FOR THE LOWEST SCUMBAGS IN THE WORLD MEANING THE RICHEST ARE THE LOWEST FILTH ON EARTH
    MONEY CANNOT BUY YOU HAPPINESS, LOVE OR HEALTH
    YOU FUCKING TURDS.
    JUSTIFYING AVARICE AND GREED IS EVIL
    ALL GREED AND AVARICE IS EVIL
    YOU BRAINLESS IDIOT INSECTS.

  12. Personally i like more money. as much as id like a higher minimum wage because it affects me positively. what we need is better jobs. jobs that require special skills people can get. as it is we have to many people working at McDonald's with 5 or 6 kids. even 1 is too many. people today need to be smart and healthy. if they don't eat healthy as their are young. they grow up not as intelligent as they could have been and could jeopardize their health. all of which restricts these people getting those jobs. number 1 problem is getting good jobs in america and away from china and where ever. we should be taxing these business heavily on importing these goods from overseas. bring good jobs in. stop isis and any other little war bull crap and cut tax's and take that out of the military. Focus on giving those tax break to those making around 25k and lower or more importantly those with children. stop taxing the middle class more than the rich and wildly successful. after all that is done keep ensure we produce more good jobs and that Americans as a whole eat sleep and live healthily to actually be able to get these good jobs.

  13. Why this show still has the typical libtard that has absolutely nothing to contribute is a mystery to me. All they can say is.. errr.. yeah…ummm.. well let me..err… yeah. You dont know shit as to how the real world works.

  14. What raising the federal min really does is raise the cost to taxpayers of all government contracting jobs, because they base it off the min wage. It just forces taxpayers to pay more for less.

  15. Germany didn't have a minimum wage until 10 years ago, and Singapore has never had one, and they have the highest per capita GDP in the world. Federal gov has no business setting minumum wage. Let the states set their own.

  16. Lol the republicans are so fucking dumb. If you actually go read the article they used as a source on the problem, it has an air “quote” beside it.

    Meaning the article is stating the OPPOSITE. Also, the wage is now $11 an hour for >500 and $13.50 500+ companies. Not only is it not $15 an hour yet, the study purposely ignore Fortune 500 companies and their ability to pay the wage increase (spoiler: they are fine with it). The whole machine taking over people ordering things are already taking place and going to be implemented regardless of wage increase or not. Technology is constantly changing and getting cheaper anyways. The amount of stupid ass american not even reading the article is mind-boggling.

  17. You are right!!!!! You raise that Rung, you have to raise all the other Rungs! That's what we want dipshit! The quality of the American job has been declining for years! For those who actually do the hard work YOU NEED DONE, those labor trades, those menial jobs, those concrete workers, all need to make more! When they do, our total economy suceeds!

  18. meanwhile most americans are basically wage slaves making 45k a year. I.E., COMPLETE POVERTY.

    merica #1!

    Best cunt-try in the world? RIGHT U WHITE CHRISTIAN CRACKERS? AHAHAHHA FUCKING FAGGOTS.

  19. If you get a job flipping burgers or bending taco shells, you will most likely be hired for the Federal minimum wage. If you do good at your job and ask for a list of things to improve, then you can take that training to the next job. It is not intended for a head of household to be working on minimum wage.

  20. They closed because they know they can move out of that city to the next one that min wages is only $7.50. Its kinda how slavery back then was only allowed in the south buesness took advantage of that. Why pay someone a living wage when you can move south and take advantage of the free labor. At least the slaves were fed and had shelter.

  21. How about we keep the government out of an agreement between two people all together and let the employer and employees try and get the best deal they can from each other?

  22. How about instead of raising wages lower taxes. Why is that never the issue. It’s not that these people don’t make enough to support themselves they don’t have any money left over because you taxed it out of them
