    A higher minimum wage doesn't mean people will get paid more...it means people that the company chooses to keep employed will get paid more and more will get fired. These fired people will leech off of the democrat lamented welfare state and create more democrat voters...

    My question is...why can workers not understand they are being played?

    Minimum wage does not hurt workers, exploitative cheapskate bosses do.

    Protectionism for American working class jobs would be a good start, competing directly with the Chinese workforce is ruining us.

    Nope, Use whatever taxes or tariffs are necessary to make it clear that we will not reward any business or person in any way for moving or staying off-shore. If we are going to have corporate socialism then make it work for us.
