    Again, all businesses and jobs are fundamentally the same.

    Name two of each and I'll show you.

    That's it?!? Based on that, they are "fundamentally the same"? Oh, for crying out loud, what a pathetic joke.

    The answer is they aren't, so we will agree to disagree then..

    Waitress, construction worker and store clerk at a gas station.

    One can be paid under minimum wage, another does not get a lunch break but one gets both.

    No they aren’t. Pay scales, minimum wage laws and work/rest cycles are different in different industries. The government does not treat all jobs or companies the same – it would be silly to.

    It also should be that way in concerns of retirement to be (treated differently) also, but the government treats retirement eligibility as the same or in a socialistic manor. Now why do they do this you suppose ? I think it is because they hope that people die before they get to draw it in most cases, therefore they can steal some of that money back from them or never have to pay it out if at all possible in most cases.

    There is no way that an AX man (see the show) should be forced to retire at the same age as someone who barely lifts a pen in their life, and wasn't exposed to the elements & the hardships like the Ax man was, but they both retire from the system at the same age ? The Ax man should be able to retire at 55, where as the office clerk needs to stay on till at least 62. Both jobs or skills are needed in the land, and Americans are those who do this work, but why the socialistic manor in which they are both treated, especially when they are in no way the same, and shouldn't be looked at or treated the same at all when it comes to retirement from the system, so it is a mystery to me. Now why is that or did I already answer it earlier in the post ?

    Presumably that means less jobs, less hours, higher prices for products and services, and/or less entry level positions for 16-18 year olds to get out in the world and gain experience, that's what it means.. May be a combination of 2 of them, may be a combination of all 4 depending on the type of company.
    Actually add that minimum wage increase with the Obamacare bill, and you have superior business destructiveness. But that is what liberals want right??
