Why did Obama ask for a $10.10 minimum wage? All this will do is take away the power of the government from the private sector and put in the hands of a bunch of senseless Americans. We as Americans must realize that the rich are the people that offer the true economic opportunities that this nation has to offer. The $10.10 minimum wage will bring the social classes together and there won't be any room for mobility. We must keep corporate America.

Great. Another liberal masquerading as a conservative trying to portray us as a bunch of heartless 1%ers. In reality, poor minority urban youth are the #1 victims of the minimum wage. Want to drastically reduce poverty and unemployment among unskilled workers? Then get rid of the minimum wage.

So you support the raising of minimum wage then?

Trust me, no one thinks you are a 1%. You're just a sheep who hopes to catch the scraps from the 1%.

Not one of rich will be affected and YOU know it!
Your facetiousness ignores the FACT there are about 104,000 people that will be affected in that since most of them are low skilled workers i.e. janitors/dish washers here is what will happen:
Janitors will be replaced by robo sweepers that sell for $300.. replace plenty of these dust busters!
Automatic dishwashers costs for high volume food locations about $6,000... equal to the pay increase for ONE dishwasher worker!

Unemployment will increase. Is that what Obama wants??

Because he knows than Americans don't know their ass from a hole in the ground. As victims of government "education" they do not understand the economic ramifications of such a move.

.
And your non-economic degree from that college you never went to I'm sure qualifies you as an expert.

My point precisely.

The parasites and the socialists see it as another welfare benefit.

The fact that you did not try explain how those on a fixed income or the poor can afford to pay for additional expenses tells me that you are another graduate from the Karl Marx School of Business.

The fact that you haven't tried to explain how raising someones minimum wage will actually hurt them tells us that you're the idiot we can all clearly see you are.

Well except for the trickle up effect.. the increase of the cost of goods and services.. and the impact of raising unemployment
The real reason behind the increase in minimum wage is that many union contracts follow the minimum wage, so it doesn't just mean a raise for those making it, but also all of those union workers whose contracts stipulate an automatic increase when the minimum wage is increased. Another payoff to unions.

Yes, let's subsidize Walmart and Mcdonalds workers even more. Better yet they can just pay their workers in store credit like the old company stores. Build big trailer park communiies next to the Giant superstores where the workers pay rent to the store.

Exactly. This further bolsters the fact that the price of goods and services WILL go up affecting everyone.

And the last thing we need in this country is a well paid workforce.
