    Trade unions in Switzerland claim they have collected enough signatures to force a referendum on a proposal to introduce a minimum wage of 22 Swiss francs ($25) an hour.

    That is about twice the minimum wage of 9 euros ($12.40) in neighboring France.

    A spokesman for the Swiss Federation of Trade Unions, or SGB, says more than 121,000 people have so far signed the request for a vote.

    They should just make the minimum wage one million an hour. That way everyone is rich and no one goes hungry and everyone can buy a house and stuff.

    If you don't like the price of swiss cheese go out and make your own. You don't have a constitutional right to swiss cheese.

    It won't effect Americans at all.
    Sweden has high pay and 50% income taxes. They live better and are more secure than Americans.

    If it passes, 121,000 people will then start whining like little bitches about how the price of everything has gone up.
