    San Francisco Becomes First U.S. City To Top $10 Minimum Wage | Fox News
    These people are morons, the price of everything else is going to go up right along with it, and they can barely pay there bills to begin with. I just hope they dont plan to fund this with Federal Money because the rest of us out here in reality cannot afford there shitty policies.

    This is a GOOD thing. It will hasten San Francisco's descent into third worldism as business flees.

    At one point our state democrats had our minimum over 9 an hour.

    Suddenly they back peddled. and it stands at 8.67.

    They were having trouble with all the other prices going up and business being hamstrung.

    Odds of Federal dems getting a clue. NONE...........

    I have to agree with you that it will hasten there decent, but disagree with it being a good thing. The rest of us have to foot the bill for there irresponsibility in California, always have. I hope if Obama is ousted from office that we get a Christy type of president that tells Cali to kiss the rest of our asses and that they are on there own with there irresponsibility.
    It's like the old saying goes, however goes california the rest of the united states will follow, if they fail, we all fail right behind them.

    Whatever it was yesterday is nothing, just wait until after this goes full blown, it will surely get higher.

    Just like how unemployment soared after Clinton raised the minimum wage. Man those 90's were tough times.

    Telling California to kiss the collective ass of America is likewise a good thing. Sometimes the only way to change destructive behavior is to fully experience the consequences of that behavior.
