    there is no unemployment only underpayment; why should capitalists with marginal ideas get rewarded instead of labor?

    And we're hearing incessant cries to double it with no accounting for the impact such a move would have. More than 60% of the American work force earns $20/hr or less. At least that many will demand raises if the MW goes to $15/hr.

    Not if they can't get out keep a job because their work isn't worth the MW.

    No, it is financed by incentivizing corporate behavior that reduces poverty

    What did a 50% corporate tax cut incentivize? Greed

    You realize your local burger joint saw the price of beef double since the last minimum wage hike took place nine years ago?

    The market adjusted for price increases due to the price of beef....it will adjust to increases due to higher wages

    unemployment compensation for simply being unemployed should be available for those willing to try their luck in our market for labor. raising the minimum wage to cover social costs will also reduce unemployment under our form of Capitalism.
