    15-25 cents more an hour does not make that much more of a difference. That's an insult to me

    Yes, it would mean less need for welfare, as it is currently known.

    Why because of years working, you can't make 15-25cents more?, it's an insult to me that you can't even get my order right at the drive thru at Wendy's..

    How about you try harder next time and management will give you even a bigger raise to get ahead of the game?

    The level would just be raised, or like in Seattle the workers beg for less hours to be under the government threshold ,so they can continue to be eligible.

    It is up to the Individual providing the labor, not just the employer.

    If that's your outlook then you wouldn't be able to hire anybody. The odds of you hiring a serial killer are much higher if you hire somebody that's been convicted of it than somebody that hasn't.

    Trouble can come to you even if you try to avoid it, but why invite trouble when you don't have to?
