OP is Wrong because it would cause inflation of over 150% because there is not an expansion of the money supply but a redistribution

The point is that raising minimum wage speeds up inflation, and will likely cost jobs for lower class- lower middle class people.

Raising minimum wage will do no good for anyone.

With minimum wages being raised, employers will hire fewer workers

it is well past time for a minimum wage increase. Trickle down economics is a joke. more money in the poorest hands means more money spent.
User avatar #8 to #7 - jovisman ONLINE (02/14/2013) [-]
if someone is poor and barely making it any extra money made will be spent almost immediately spent.Thus reentering the economy and thus spurring growth at least in theory.Rich people get extra money and tend to put it in the bank making other rich people richer.not saying that rich people shouldnt do that but just saying that you get better bang for your buck in rasing minimum wage over tax relief for the wealthy.the latter does have some benefit but not as much as putting cash in the hands of people making much less

min wage increase sounds awesome if I was 16 and saving for a car so I can take my gal on a date. My GM already told me if the MW increases we are going to slow down hiring to compensate. Truth

Awww, all you people might have to get off your lazy asses and cook food for yourself. How will you ever survive? I come home after working 10 hour shifts at a fast food restaurant and cook dinner for my family but you can't get out of your car for your Big Mac? It might raise the costs a little but perhaps it might help someone else, stop being focused on yourself and pretend there are other people in the world.

Its funny watching funnyjunk try to talk about politics or economics because yall know almost nothing

you do know you're not supposed to live off burgers when you're on minimum wage right? I mean you can live off 900$ if you want, and you can live just fine, then you have a spare of 800$ you can put to what you want, 900 is included everything you need.
User avatar #64 - lordlolland (02/14/2013) [+] (10 replies)
Sooo... You need one guy to work one hour to make one burger?
Because that is what you are implying by saying that one burger will rise the same amount that the minimum wage will rise.

if you have to pay your employees more you're going to do one of two likely things:

1 fire workers to maintain current profits or
2 raise prices to maintain current profits

the picture is just an example i think

Universal health care makes for a higher cost of living. It's not free health care.

Minimum wage isn't supposed to be lived on. If you don't like what you're getting paid go somewhere else. Competitive economy **** tards.

Socialism is not the answer to increasing the quality of life for Americans. When you make it easy to be a nothing, just another turd floating around the United States welfare system looking to get something for nothing, then you are guaranteed an ever increasing amount of people will allow themselves to fall to that low state, because they are so simple that they believe that they are happy with living in their own filth.

What needs to happen does not involve sending government checks and debit cards to these low-life pieces of scum. What it does involve is setting up camps for the homeless and hungry where you can sleep and eat for free, but you will not eat good food, and the sleeping accommodations would be 10 to a room. Money should never enter into the equation. If they have children, take them away from them and put them in foster systems. Poor people do not deserve to have kids. If you can't pay for your own brat don't ******* have one, because if you do it should be taken from you.

Regarding minimum wage increases, not only are they completely ineffective but they decrease the available amount of jobs. When you're paying an employee $9 an hour you are damn sure going to get your money's worth from them, and you better believe you aren't going to tolerate ******** in your store who are as much a drain on your labor percentages as they are on society.... so really what increasing minimum wage does is increase the welfare state even further as less and less jobs are available, more people either have no job or will settle for minimum wage rather than work even harder for a job that only pays a dollar more.... and so you end up with millions of people either not working or working ****** jobs with no intention of bettering themselves nor anyone else.

And all the while what are you doing for honest people who worked to get ahead in life? You're ******** on their sweat and tears and handing out freebies to the mentally handicapped.
