Everyone deserves a living wage.
Sign it who can live on the current min. wage no one! its hard enough even for those of use that make above the minumum come MR PResident help the American People. A government for the people, of the people, by the people, just do it do what's right!
And let's stop the foolish idea that some jobs, like restaurant wait staff, should be exempt from the minimum wage and other labor laws. We fought a disastrous civil war because some employers wanted to be able to steal labor from workers. Recently we have heard about "takers" versus "makers" but the speakers ignore that the biggest takers are at the high end of the income ladder.
I too, think all full time jobs should pay enough for a middle class life style, a great idea by: Aida Teresa Shirley.
Please help, we need this.
The Unions struggle to get raises for everyone, even those not in the Union. No, it's not fair. In today's world, even Minimum Wage is a barely-survival wage.
IF the minimum wage had kept up with the increases accorded CEO's it would now be OVER $25.00 AN HOUR.
This is important and I'm happy to support this Cause!
we need it.
We are NOT a third world nation, yet we persist on third world economics for half our citizens which means we will become a third world country if we continue down this path. As Senator Kennedy said "How much is enough? When does the greed end?"
