    Minimum wage is irrelevant.

    Yes, the poor are just dirt in the tires of your liberal ideals. There is no more singularly evil initiative of the left then denying jobs to those who need them the most. Yet you not only do that, but boast.

    Although I admire almost nothing about Europe, they do have a point in making their minimum wage laws. They have no minimum wage laws across the board. It is set by the kind of job being performed. For some tasks, the minimum wage is quite low, equal to about $3.00 per hour in American dollars. It is far more clear, and far, far more fair than setting minimum wages at $10.00 an hour to sweep a floor.

    Romney raised fees on gun permits?
    No wonder that state is so full of varmits and such.

    i agree small businesses cant keep up with minimum wage plus rewarding good workers and sometimes stuck with poor workers than telling the good workers, they ahve to pay the poor worker the same wage. its not easy out there if your on a budget, whether home or business.

    The ones who aren't worth minimum wage get fired. But only because the left care about them so much they don't want them to work if they are not worth $7.25 an hour.

    The minimum wage is a hurdle, not a tide. And anyone who says otherwise is clueless.
