    Sounds crazy, but how about you tackle entitlement reform. Give people three years to get off welfare and the whole time provided education services so they can learn a trade or real world skills so that when the welfare is up, they can get a good paying job and not reliant on minimum wage paying jobs.

      Its very simple why that never gets addressed.
      And this is not party specific, because neither have addressed it. Most believe it is not electable. Therefore it is impossible to get done, so nobody cares about the actual citizens and their growth at an alarming rate, but rather getting re-elected.

        Here when they increase minimum wage, only those earners get an increase. Those that make even slightly more than minimum wage do not get a bump.

        • Most companies have already raised their minimum wage with almost no clue to the consumer, half the states have higher minimum wage laws already. I don't think it's as big of a thing as it was in the past, but its just politicians trying to say look we did something and when it isn't passed they can blame other people. Its not genuine trying to help people its identity politics. As a reference Bank of America is going to 20 an hour, Wells Fargo is 15 an hour, WalMart is 11 an hour, Target is 14 an hour, Washington state is 12 going to 13.50 an hour while Seattle is 15, and so on. I think minimum wage is too low, but doubling it probably isn't the best idea, should have been on a sliding scale nationally and within the states. Should have grown with inflation nationally and each state should slide based on cost of living and growth. It didn't and here we are, but as I said before its all for show and nothing will happen currently other than get people "outraged".


          And as far as people upstream getting bumps due to minimum wage increases in companies, I know personally where I work did when they raised it everyone received a 3% bump, and the hospital system my wife works for when the raised theirs to 13 an hour I believe it gave everyone a 7% bump.

                Nobody wants to be the one blamed for cutting entitlements for that reason. Political suicide across that demographic. Maybe if term limits get implemented, things like this will matter much less.

                  Did they eat those increases in payroll costs and payroll taxes?

                  • After playing horrible golf yesterday I flipped a switch today and finally beat my brother straight up for the first time in probably 10 years this morning! Plus I got to spend the whole time sharing a cart with my dad who rarely plays anymore. That was a great way to start the day.

                      I think tax breaks and/or compensation for higher ups is a smaller gap to regular employees. WalMart's prices and Target's prices haven't exactly skyrocketed. You can still get 3 dollar shirts and 88 cent socks. Aldi grocery stores pay like 11 an hour to cashiers and you can still get 1.25 strawberries. I think companies as a whole fortune 500 and so could lower compensation for CEOs and board members and spread the income to employees and "eat" a raise in the minimum wage, but for some reason it isn't really fathomable to our society that happens, it's more they still make 25-30 million a year and for lower wages to make more we have to raise prices. I think that is a whole separate issue.

                              Do you think if a McDonald's franchise upped everyone's pay, that they would start expanding?

                                If by expansion you mean raising McDouble's to $4.99 and closing lots of locations, then yes.
