    The Globalist are trying to shut down businesses so that their businesses will takeover. Like Walmart and Amazon, which George Soros has invested in. Is taking over the whole food, furniture and clothing market. Now these small retail stores will be unable to stay open, because they cannot afford to pay employees. Which these big chain stores buys their products from across seas from sweat shops. That is why they want Pres.Trump out of office. So that they can get rid of import taxes.
    They knows that if our prices here goes up. That eventually prices all over the globe will soon go up.
    The Globalist doesn't want anyone to own property. It is because owning property makes a person become independent But they want us all living in one big warehouse, renting small sections of the warehouse floor. While they will have control of the rest of the world. And then they will be feeding us slop that is made from the leftovers from their kitchen tables.
    And when ever they need and organ or someone to pleasure them. That they'll grab one of us to fulfill their needs. That we will be like sheep on a farm that it is own by people that practices bestiality.

    Why? What is there that makes the act of pushing a broom, flipping a burger, or cashing out a customer worth $15.00 (or more, as you suggest)?

    Wall Street demands consistent and constant growth by people who do not work but it's wrong for people who actually work?

    Blah, blah, blah. That’s not what I asked, nor what I care about.

    What makes one hour of menial work worth $15 worth of wages PLUS the additional monies an employer pays (taxes, etc...) to keep that individual employed?...

    Think of something that you would pay $15 for in a store. Would you suggest that item would be worth one hour of the services of these minimum wage employees? I have to say that in general, I do not.

    What happens in Minny doesn't affect the rest. Not a big dealio. On the other hand $15 an hour amounts to peanuts in the scheme of things.

    Why? So we can stop subsidizing their wages with food stamps. Burger flippers get shot and beaten up by customers on occasionally and it`s probably a harder job than your cubicle work. McDonald`s gets it. They will no longer lobby against a raise in the minimum wage. The $15 dollar an hour employee is likely to stay on the job a lot longer than 6 months.
    McDonald’s won’t lobby against $15 federal minimum wage proposal

    Effort and productivity are directly linked to pay, except if course when it comes to the management positions.

    Excuse me... $15 an hour in Minneapolis Is far different than $15 an hour in Boston. If the “minimum” wage buys more in Minnesota than here in Massachusetts, suddenly these worthless shits here in MA will want a $22 an hour minimum wage, to make it “fair”.

    This is why there should not be a minimum wage.

    That's fine but then don't complain that people are lazy if jobs aren't filled. An employer cannot expect good work for $5 an hour...$10 for that matter.
