So $15 an hour and at least 30 hours or don't hire? I don't think that is going to work either. They ill don size and not hire.
Even that is pretty low, but it's better than 15 hours. It still won't take them as far but they won't be as burdened.
I agree that it needs to be full time, but again, corporations want to make money and find ways to do it.
You are correct
This is false and were likes spread to shit on his campaign. Nice try though.
you are right
@SirRexington you are full of shit like always. Liberals don't know how businesses work, which is why when they take control of gov't , businesses start closing from their policies.
You mean like how Donald Trump and the Republicans just ruined the economy with their business savviness?
@Soteris what is ruined? More jobs available than with Obama. Obama which destroyed the health care system
I'm not a liberal... and its when Republicans get in office that recessions happen, that important programs get cut and wages lower. Sure the Democrats haven't helped much but that's because they are nothing but Republicans who don't hate gay people, abortions or immigrants.
Were you not the guy who just insulted liberals for not knowing how businesses work? Enjoy the Recession.
@Soteris The world economy and our debts thanks to Osama Obama will be the reason we have a depression.
Yeah, no. Besides we have said this would happen since the first day of Trump in office but all you brilliant businessmen on the Republican side laughed at us saying Trump would create the best economy in the world. Somehow we were right and you were wrong... again..
@SirRexington I trust the source who fact checked before they published and before you ask it was not fox news.
Fox news isn't the only anti Bernie fake news bullshit. Most mass media is bullshit. MSNBC, CNN all those assholes are just as big of liars as Fox.

True and I agree, however, we spend a lot on social programs. The money is there , it is not used correctly. Also most of these people are mentally ill and refuse help. The most important thing is providing them with a mail box to receive Social Security. I would imagine most qualify and have no way to get paid. We need mental ill housing. It is the humane thing to do.
Honestly, I don't like socialism, but I'd much rather that $50 billion go to homeless than to foreign aid. Tons of people could get a new lease on life. People who are mentally ill should be taken to institutions and given the help they need. People who are mentally fine should be forced to live civilized or arrested for vagrancy.
that is taxatuchettes , not real America , they let you grow pot there
Lmao dude whenever someone has a counter point you ignore it and just criticize something else. You really are a comedian!And yes we value the freedom for citizens to grow Marijuana here.
the freedom to tax people to death. I say sell Mass to Canada
how is Pocohantas?
Lol what are you on about?
same take home, you have not gained a thing
if min wage is $25 an hour , used cars there must be $35,000 with 100,000 miles.
Who cares what a used car costs? People have healthcare, can buy food and pay rent that's what matters. And there's plenty of evidence that when poor people get more money it benefits everyone because they will spend it and boost the economy. If there's more demand the economy will flourish. If you give rich people more money all they'll do with it is figure out how not to pay taxes on it and how to get their hands on even more money.
wrong, that is not how it works. if you make $100 an hour min wage, union workers will make $1000 an hour. Corporation CEO 's will make millions more. Your expenses will go up in % . If you are paid $100 an hour , the guy paying you has to raise the price of his product or service. Price controls lead to shortages.
Perhaps since there is no limit to the amount of paper money that can be printed. That is why we need to follow the constitution and make money gold and silver money, and the dollar defined as a fixed non-changeable amount of gold and /or silver. That would eliminate so called inflation. However, if changeable, a gold standard it would be as worthless as paper money since politicians would always increase the number of dollars a set amount of gold is worth.
They will make you do more than you are now and they will be more choosy on who they hire. They can with ease give three more hours to 5 people and fire the bum that doesn't work
A capitalistic company would do that anyways. You make it sound like they are not actively trying to make everything as efficient as it can be from the beginning.
you are 100% correct. The kiddos here are in for a rude awaking.
Employers do that anyway, there's not a single business open today that doesn't run their store on a skeleton crew. Even Hospitals and nursing homes are critically understaffed and have been for the last decade or more, what do you think that means for crappy retail jobs? Employers will always and forever do everything they can to step over a dollar so they can pick up a dime.
@Bananaman177 Yes, I agree. My point is with the increment of the min wage, the situation is gonna be much worse.I'm not saying that employers don't do that right now, I know that they've been doing this all along.
in the 1970's there were a bunch of strikes and it always from increase in min wage and unions want more when useless unexperienced workers get increase. Plus Barnie Sanders cut people's hours when he was pressured in paying workers $15 an hour. It also shows how democrats make demands that they don't do. It is do what I say not what I do. Same with environment , don't fly in planes , then they get on a plane,
You idiot how are they supposed to get around and campaign or go from DC to their home state without a plane? They want to change how air travel works bit bas airplanes...
Well Rex the retarded , they also, say ban guns, then get caught with one at airport
Ban guns? What politician is asking fir tge complete ban of guns? Nobody that's who. You're a lying moron.
they will hire less people with same amount of work to be done
The business can’t afford to pay that. They will either cut hours or shut down.
@Poormanscomedian That makes no sense; have they been paying people to hang around half the time up 'til now?@Rissyanne Or raise their prices slightly, depending on how much labour goes into whatever they sell. And, if what they sell is sold to minimum wage workers, costomers will be able to afford more of whatever it is.
You really don’t know what you are talking about do you.
He has no comeback or at least not a reasonable one. I can't believe America is considered a 1st world country. LOL
You would need two or three jobs
$10 an hour for 32 hours is $320. $12 an hour for 32 hours is $384. To make $384 at $15 an hour I'd have to work 25.6 hours. If you cut my original job to 15 hours, I only have to work 11.6 hours more maximum, which could be done in one long shift or 2 short ones, in one job. No WAY I'd 2 other jobs.
I have a degree in Business so yes I do.
Then what are the increases in price as a portion of minimum wag increases?
like I said the market will adjust to the wage increases by either rising costs to products and services , and or hours will be cut but responsibilities will be doubled, or current workers will be laid off , or businesses will offer fewer services, or reduce store hours to peek times.
The increases in costs or drops in hours of employment are minimal compared to the increases in the minimum wage.
gov't only makes thing worse
Ya well it's the only one we got and there are enough people on welfare. If the wages are higher maybe they won't make more by staying on benefits. It's not a good business model
if you are min wage worker , you will always be last , if you raise wage to $15 an hour from $8, then the food you buy will go from $3 to $6 , price controls were tried and failed , then food stays at $3 , but there will be no food to buy. I have seen that too. In the 70's people switched from beef to horse meat trying to save on food.
Well what's the solution then because most everything has been tried and failed.
that is it , system will fail and new one will be created , so we will at least start out in a fair system.
Even if you double the wages, the price of a burger goes up by just 25%.www.fool.com/.../...m-wage-cost-you-at-mcdona.aspx
They get welfare like me! And they probably either rent a room or live with their parents/brothers/aunt/uncle in one house/ apartment!
@SueAnon84 People work 3 jobs today and live on the street
Says who? ! Not were I'm from! I see packed apartments and hardly anyone homeless in the OC!
It is not a boom economy we have now, middle class is still declining.
You have to be a Hollywood whore for that kind of money.
What is stupid about it?
In what world can you afford a living working 15 hours a week?
This will happen whether you like it or not.
You talking about basic universal income stupidity..
no stupid , my question is about min wage , not the socialist universal income , which will never happen anyway. The US is already bankrupt , that would finish US off.
Dude, turn off the conservative radio talk show because you seem to believe whatever foolishness they say. If what you saying is true, that means the streets will be flood with crime since people can't live off 15 hours a week.
Dude, get your head out of your butt, many do now.
GAG didn't think so, it is a featured question . Want to reconsider?
by the way , are you legally here in US?
No. Go call ICE. Deport me ASAP.
You sound like you want to leave
you are now
