AGAIN.. less then 4 million minimum wage people are the reason to destroy our economy!
Obama is methodically out to destroy our economy!
Proof? FROM the Govt. Bureau of Labor Statistics:

In 2011, 73.9 million American workers age 16 and over were paid at hourly rates, representing 59.1 percent of all wage and salary workers.1 Among those paid by the hour, 1.7 million earned exactly the prevailing Federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. About 2.2 million had wages below the minimum.
Together, these 3.8 million workers with wages at or below the Federal minimum made up 5.2 percent of all hourly-paid workers.
Characteristics of Minimum Wage Workers: 2011

3.8 million working at less then or equal to minimum wage!

Minimum wage workers tend to be young. Although workers under age 25 represented only about one-fifth of hourly-paid workers, they made up about half of those paid the Federal minimum wage or less. Among employed teenagers paid by the hour, about 23 percent earned the minimum wage or less, compared with about 3 percent of workers age 25 and over. (See table 1 and table 7.)

So now once again... Obama destroying the economic incentives to HIRE people and DESTROYING jobs by forcing employers to let people go!
The very people he stupidly thinks he's helping!

Geez doesn't HE AND HIS ILK read their own departments reports???

Less then 4 million people work at minimum wage!
Less then 4 million people are uninsured that want insurance NOT 46 million!

FOLKS YOU supporters of raising minimum and ACA... YOU ARE F..KING IDIOTS!

4 million people work at minimum wage or less! 4 million people want and need health insurance!

YET IDIOTS like you are going along with the Obama DESTRUCTION MACHINE!
