The reciprocity between that minimum wage raise and the actual raise of common household prices needed (if it was needed, it's not, and the only place you can hear moronic stuff like that is from some downies on Fox News or some shit like that) is such that we're talking about ratios i.e. 1 dollar:1/3 of a cent. Simply abysmal. So, in a nutshell, for the 99.9% of the people the positive impact on everyday life and prosperity is significant, while the negative is void.

But here we come to the real reason for oposition of such a raise by the corporate despots. You see, those 1/3s of a cent amass into millions when talking corporate profit. So, the right wings will of course fight the raise, in spite of being a microscopical minority and under absolutely zero threat for personal livelihood. As opposed to millions and millions of people who's basic qualities of life depend on that 1 dollar/hour raise.

Actually, I studied economics in college, I was a Finance major. I did much research on the topic of higher wages.

What needs to happen is let the market bottom out and correct itself. The invisible hand will fix itself, and prices will drop. What government has done is print more money, devaluing its worth. This has caused prices to increase. If you disagree with this, you must not shop much.

The last time we raised the minimum wage, people were excited, until it went into effect, and people saw prices rise.

Raising the minimum wage will do nothing to help anybody, but actually hurt more people.

Salt Upon Wounds, since you are the expect, will those making $9 or more get a raise too? Chances are a very small amount will. If you are making $9 or $10, doing ok, you will now be hurting because prices will rise.

Lets fix the economy before we actually make stupid decisions like this. Let companies fail. Allow new ones to come up. Stop attacking success. I know this is the liberal way, and it always fails.

To be fair, everyone feels they should make more than they really do. So, if they hear a forced raise, they see it as a good thing.

I remember when it went to $7.25, being in college, and thinking this is great. Then I saw prices go up, and any extra money I thought I would have was not there.

To many people this would be a great thing to keep raising it higher and higher.

MINIMUM WAGE IS NOT MEANT TO BE A LIFE SUSTAINING JOB. If you cannot make it off of one job, you get a second, then a third. If you cannot make it off of two jobs, you are trying to live way beyond your means, unless you have a family. Which then you should get help in the form of food stamps, but even then, you should be doing what you can to improve your life.

Too many people expect the government to take care of them, and blame the rich for everything. Anybody with a finance, business, or economic background can easily point to where government creates more problems than helps. Let the market fix itself, and stop bailing out people and businesses. Failure is not a bad thing, it teaches you.
