More Liberal Nonsense on the Minimum Wage

by Jacob G. Hornberger

..In discussing the concept of a minimum wage, an important issue arises: How much should it be? Unfortunately, Skar doesn’t give us a definite answer. She implies that it should be raised from the current $7.25 an hour to around $11 an hour.

What? Why only $11? Does Skar hate the poor? If raising the minimum wage is a key to prosperity, why settle for $11? Why not make it $22? Wouldn’t that double the level of prosperity? How about $52 an hour? Or $102 an hour? Indeed, why not make the minimum wage equal to what the members of Congress make? Think of all the prosperity that would bring.

756 Back in the day: Minimum wage's original intent was to guarantee a salary which a husband could support his wife and two children. Corporate America's base guarantees that quality of life will never happen.

81161 You know what ?
I my country the minimum wage is negotiated between the Tradeunions and the Employer-organizations . Sounds like freedom of contract and all that, right ?
And what happens ? We STILL have to listen to the local libertarian-fools telling eveybody how evil it is to even have a minimum-wage .
My country is Denmark, look how bad it has been for us to have a minimum-wage ..
Since we got it, the average life-expectancy has increased from 53 to 73 years ..

GROW THE HELL UP ..
