    We are talking the massive population of the babby boomers here. This is a new thing, plus they are living a hell of alot longer and sucking up health care costs that puts an added burden on salary's .

    Aren’t people also working longer? There are a lot of factors. Sounds like a good study.

    You don't want to raise it that high, you would hurt American carmakers.

    Folks that make $200 an hour or more usually ride high end European or Japanese vehicles, Mercedes, Bentley or Lexus. It would really damage other popularly price US industries like wine as well.

    WalMart and Home Depot agree. It would put small businesses that compete against them out of business. Market needs to set the wage. Leftists want the Gov't to stay out of their lives when it comes to who they can or cannot marry but they want the Gov't to tell me how much to pay my employees? GTFO.

    Too much spending during a good economy. Interest rates still real low. When it slows there will be no options to speed it.
