    $9.50 is a "living wage"? Where?

    If you government really cared about mandating a "living wage" then it would be closer to $20 an hour.

    I agree that the MW needs reform

    Let's "reform" it by getting rid of it.

    I agree with that. America does not need a "minimum" wage, it needs a "living" wage.

    We already have a "living wage".....it's called go out and get a life....and a real job...which will pay you what you need to "live" the way you think you should...:lol:

    meh..................

    how stupid..............dont we have enough people unemployed?

    The only people who are for this have two things in common: 1) They dont own anything and 2) They have no concept of what it means to have real responsibilities in life.
