You ever wonder if his kids try and get on that twitter feed?

Most likely Barack himself doesn't have access to his twitter feed. Probably a PR guy, same one who controls his facebook.

Honestly, I would guess that there are very few times, and very few outlets, where the President can speak exactly what is on his mind without it being reviewed by someone first to see if it's acceptable. It would be considered too risky for PR for him to have his own twitter account.

I'm so honored to be the first comment. All of my hard work and dedication has paid off. Getting the top comment has been a dream of mine for many years, and i would like to thank those who have helped me along the way. First and foremost i would like to thank my parents for giving me this opportunity . I want to thank my dog, jack for being really fat and always there for me. I would also like to thank my pet tadpole for surviving against all odds for over a week. Next i would like to thank the squirrel that lives in my backyard for climbing trees because that gives me inspiration that i need to get through the day. This is a special moment in my life and i would like to thank any of my unmentioned friends and family that have helped me along the way. This moment will be a moment that i will never forget. I just remembered a few other people i would like to thank; facebook, the fish i caught in the third grade, my light in my room because i wouldn’t be able to see the keyboard without it, the internet for letting me go on facebook, my house because without it i would be homeless, and last but not least i would like to thank all the people out there that actually took time out of their day to read this. I cannot stress how much of a big deal to me this is. I have been trying to be the first comment on a post for years, but that has not been possible until this amazing day. Hopefully my good luck will continue, but this is undoubtedly a rare occasion. If you asked me how i did this, i would say, you can achieve anything u set your mind on. To all the kids out there reading this, i would like to tell them to follow their dreams. Being the top comment is amazing, thank you everyone

I personally do not believe it would work. I believe all it will do is have more companies lay off employees and expect workers to do more because of there higher wages. It would only cause more problems by raising the unemployment rates and at the same time raising the price of necessities like clothing, food, and gas. Not to mention contributing to other problems like health care and the overwhelming national debt.

We don't need to raise the minimum wage we need to impose a maximum wage
User avatar #4 - ribbedandstudded (04/15/2014) [-]
What are your guy's thoughts on raising minimum wage?

On the one side, it's hard to live off minimum wage as is. possible, but hard. raising the federal minimum wage would improve that capability.

on the other side, it would require companies to raise the wages of their employees, even if they make over minimum wage (suddenly, they're not making so much money compared to the new hires, etc). This would cause companies to raise the prices of the products to compensate.

For the record, i'm not asking about business ethic. Large companies could probably get away with not raising their prices. I just want to know about you opinions on minimum wage.

Actually, walmart would only have to raise their prices by 1.4% to pay all of their employees at least $13/hr. That would also save $300,000,000 in federal assistance for those working at walmart (I.E. Food stamps).
So basically, That 68 cent box of macaroni would only be 69 cents. People are idiots if they think it impacts prices THAT much.

Oh, and it is physically impossible to live off minimum wage where I live. The minimum here is 7.25/hour.

Simply put, when dealing with corporate entities, its not about how much they Have to raise their prices, its how much they can profit off of it. Walmart bringing their workers off of food stamps would remove much of the profit they receive from foodstamps and thus, they would want that profit back, that 1 to 2 percent increase would be an increase of 10 or more percent. Corporations are not charities and will try to capitalize from it.

" capitalize"

You called master
User avatar #8 to #6 - manofparody (04/15/2014) [-]
Then they can try. You really think that walmart with the "lowest prices" would toss that title away and up their prices? No. They would have to wait until other big name companies did it, then raise their prices. And I'd dare them to try and raise their prices that high. They'll be competing with people who only raised their prices a little, and would lose more profit from people shopping elsewhere than they would from raising their prices that high.

Either way: We won't know unless we try. We can sit here and go through theoreticals all day, but neither of us will truly know the answer. Sure, there will be bumps along the way if they do raise it, but in the long run it would be better. People could actually afford to live off minimum wage.

If they raise prices, it will be by a percent, and it won't be them getting the same things at higher prices. They'll still be able to get more things and actually pay for living. Prices WILL raise, but it will only be percentile. If you played WoW back in Wrath, it's a lot like how Mana worked when you got more INT.

Walmart supports a raise in minimum wage...they already pay their employees above minimum wage in most cases...so raising minimum wage would put a strain on their competitors who do pay minimum wage, while not affecting their practices at all.

People can live off of minumum wage just fine, I work for minimum wage in north florida -granted its full time plus a couple hours over each check- but I get by just fine without government assistance.

People have tried before and all its caused through out American history is inflation and "justified" cost of living increases which lead to more inflation. Corporations have power here sadly and they'de rather pay a few lawsuits and federal fines on rare occasion than to take the slightest cost in their profits even when they're making record profits

That's Florida. I have a friend in Florida and how much you all get paid is ridiculous compared to here. My friend could get a job that paid $17/hr there EASY. Here, it took me 5 months to get a job (constant searching and unemployment) that paid more than $10/hr.

I worked for minimum wage, and the cheapest apartments around here are 600/month. I got paid about 150/week when I was on minimum wage. You can do the math, and see that living off that is impossible (Maybe with a room mate, but even then, car expenses would take up more than the rest).
It may be possible for you in Florida, but it's not possible here in Indiana.

Alright before I even finish reading your post.. I searched for a year and a half after I was medicallly sepped out of the air force... before two happened to call back finally. I work for 8 an hour and 42 hours a week since the second one called back, With a roomate I pay 800 a month in rent averaging 50 a month in electric with sewer gas and trash paied with rent. I am stuck with a 10 mpg truck that is the only transportation i've had for over a year since it was dirt cheap and still gets me to work and back every day, If I can make it anyone can dude. I know people who work 20 hours a week and support a wife and kids -their spouse works too obviously- Florida isn't the easiet place nither is indianna

My opinion is that if you need more than minimum wage to live off of, you need to be able to do work worth more than minimum wage. I've worked in industries where I've gotten paid minimum wage, and while I agree it's not a lot of money, I wasn't exactly doing anything worth 10+ dollars an hour. If you want to be paid more, your work needs to be worth more.

Normally, I'd give a long and in-depth reply with facts and statistics telling you why raising the minimum wage to a certain point is a good idea. This is the kinda 			****		 I live for.   
   
But tonight, I just found out that due to a massive miscommunication, I'm severely in debt. So I'm also feeling like posting pic unrelated. I'll make some content about minimum wage later or whatever.

Um.... well in terms of economics, there are different schools of thought on there being a minimum wage. Some economist believe there shouldn't be a minimum wage. Minimum wage is what we call a "price floor" in economics. It's a government set standard and the reason it exist is because most economist believe that having a minimum wage will create more jobs and disallow
There is another side of the argument, however, that states there shouldn't a minimum wage because it kills low-skill work that poor people could use to make income. Think about it this way. A business can pay one person $10/hour to landscape, or they could pay three workers $3/hour to do work. Now all of a sudden more people are making more money to pump back into an economy. Not to be insulting, but also think about a job like a Wal Mart greeter. Yes they are wonderful people that like to make money on the side. But at the same time, should they be getting paid to stand there while other people are doing back breaking work, eg. packing and unloading? It also is slightly against "freedom"... companies should be allowed to pay what they want, but the government forces them to pay employees a minimum.

I agree, though. Minimum wage is absolutely not enough to live off of. I make more than minimum wage and even I struggle. Grocery stores and utilities are VERY expensive. But it's a dog eat dog world. If you don't have unique skills/talents for a job where others have worked hard, then is it fair that you are getting by easy? Getting somewhere in life takes hard work (and most of the time a good education).
Personally I'm against raising the minimum wage as of this moment. I think we got other problems to fix in the economy. Instead of minimum wage, I think there has to be more solutions to things like fuel/gas and energy, which are at the root of some of the problems with the economy right now and causing high prices everywhere.
