Do You Support a $15 Minimum Wage? Trump – Biden – Pelosi – Kamala – Impeachment – Economy – Stock Market Show Comments 8 Comments Cliff on February 23, 2021 Hell NO, this is just another way for the corrupt democommunists to further bankrupt small businesses, causing them to close, cause more “layoffs”, encourage technology that will take the place of “HUMAN” workers with “self-serve kiosks” (that is already happening to put people out of work) and THAT will put more people on “public assistance” ( so they can be “tracked” and CONTROLLED more easily) Wise up America, The “money” sounds like a “good thing” but you are cutting off your noses in spite of your face to please the communists taking over. Doug Litchfield on February 23, 2021 Another way to get more people on welfare. Make businesses pay for nose ringed morons that do nothing to enhance the bottom line drives down positions available. Competition creates higher wages while not hurting sales. If a business needs a lot lizard to clean around the premises then they will pay to have that person trained to complete that task and stay on. Politicians have failed at what they do, now they provide a path of failure for many businesses. marcia on February 23, 2021 A minimum wage that high in our area will close businesses and raise the cost of a burger so high no one can eat out cuz they can’t afford it, let alone we’re still at 25 % occupancy rate in restaurants. The local powers know better what minimum wage should be and what the local economy can support. This is a killer for small businesses and entry level jobs for teenagers. No way would I ever support this. Sharon on February 23, 2021 Wages need to be left up to local area businesses who know better than the Feds what they can afford to pay without going under as well as what the going rate in the area is. If a person doesn’t like the wage they are getting, they can ask their boss for a raise or look for a better paying job. If you have the right training, there are always other options out there. If you need training, there are ways to get it if you truly wish to better yourself. Bernadette on February 23, 2021 Maybe Biden didn’t notice but there was a global pandemic that messed up the economies – until the economy recovers, the employer determines the wage per the abilities of the employee and what they can afford. Ralph on February 23, 2021 Agree no ,no,no,no how can you pay that in areas were business are closing and ,big tech is rising to destroy the small business , look what just happen ,Gas is up , and is not because Corona , cuz that the excuses for all , look a gallon of milk , bread ,meat , and more , new generation has not been Tod in schools ,so is a NO,NO,NO,NO you want to earn money go to work like we all have pass 50 years. Richard on February 23, 2021 The progressives don’t care about the people/ If you own a small business, like so many millions of people do., and you employee 15 people making $10.00 an hour and suddenly you must pay them $15 an hour what will happen? Your revenue has not changed, your fixed costs will remain the same, so the only way to survive is to pay 10 people the $15.00 an hour, thus eliminating the jobs of 5 people. Extrapolate that small example over the entire country and it will add up to many tens of thousands of job losses. Of course the progressives welcome that because the people will depend on the government handouts and will vote for the socialists to keep that money flowing.
