Minimum wage increases are just another progressive scam. Their "good" intentions result in higher prices for everyone, low income employees being fired and others getting reduced hours. The biggest argument they have is to say that you can't raise a family of 4 on minimum wage. News flash for Democratic morons: you are NOT supposed to support a family on minimum wages. Minimum wage jobs are designed to be temporary employment for those with no work experience and/or job skills (like teenagers). You do it for a couple of years, gain experience and get a better job. The truth is that Democrats want the poor to stay poor. That way they can ride in on their rainbow horse claiming to have the solutions to the poverty they perpetuate. Tada! Instant voting block.
