HERE'S AN IDEA YOU IDIOT................DROP THE MINIMUM WAGE!!!!!!!!!!
This is really a must read piece.......The real danger is not starving families with low wages, but locking them out of the economy altogether. If the minimum wage gets too high, there is no way for low-skilled workers to take their first step into the work force. What’s worse, there are many government regulations that are tending to compound the effect of the minimum wage, raising the price of hiring workers. Obamacare, for example, will effectively raise the minimum wage by adding an expensive minimum benefits package every worker must be given. Hiring inexperienced teens has become a risky, regulated, expensive proposition — as a result, the teenage unemployment rate in this country recently hit an all-time high of 27.6%! My teenage son would gladly work for $5, or even $3, or even for free in the right job that could teach him skills and help him establish a resume of reliability. Unfortunately, that’s impossible today.
This is why I say that for many people, low wage jobs are the first rung on the ladder to success and prosperity. Raising the minimum wage is putting the first rung of the ladder out of reach of many low-skilled Americans.
Is it just a coincidence that unemployment shot up right when the federal minimum wage law kicked in?
