Raising minimum wage like they have over and over in the past
does not kill jobs it never killed masses of jobs.
Well raising the pay will take more people off food stamps so they can buy
their own food. Making less tax burdens of low income people needing to
make it being they don't get any raise of value forcing more tax dollars needed
to cover the difference in living for the low income people.
Also to note the crime also will go down being they can buy those things
now not steal them. Better pay is more people with money to burn.
More people coming stores to spend their bigger paycheck.
Less people walking without cars being people that walk with no cars
are unproductive as they get to work having a heatstroke or cold tired.
Can't get a car the banks underwriter says "Sorry your income is too low!"
So no car! Not to say consume less as they only have two hands to
hold merchandise. Less unsafe cars driving around with no bumpers dents
and 300,000+ miles on them dragging down the used car market.
Why live without a car with others driving high dollar cars!
Higher pay helps in garnished wages. I knew people that had 4 to 6 garnishments
waiting for them in a line. They made $3.70+ an hour! Also to note that does not
make a good view for workplaces because they know those people are unsustainable.
They are worn out and more likely don't care being they are working for
$3.70+ an hour!
Higher wages is more put into Social Security getting more money into it giving
elderly a cost of living raise. More made is more put into state taxes also.
So really life is better with better pay. It's time to give people money to burn
not the stay home people doing without!
~~~~~A report that analyzed every minimum-wage hike since 1938 should put
a bunch of nonsense ideas to rest
From the fear-mongering headlines marking passage of $15 statutes in New York
and California, you would think nobody ever dared raise the minimum wage before.
"Raising minimum wage risky," the Lexington (Kentucky) Herald-Leader tersely warned.
"Raising minimum wage hurts low-skill workers," the Detroit News bluntly declared.
"Even left-leaning economists say it's a gamble," Vox solemnly cautioned.
Nonsense. We have been raising the minimum wage for 78 years, and as a new study
clearly reveals, 78 years of minimum-wage hikes have produced zero evidence of the
"job-killing" consequences these headline writers want us to fear.
over employment data from every federal increase since the minimum wage was first
established, making "simple before-and-after comparisons of job-growth trends 12
months after each minimum-wage increase."
What did the researchers find? The paper's title says it all: "Raise Wages, Kill Jobs?
Seven Decades of Historical Data Find No Correlation Between Minimum Wage
Increases and Employment Levels."
The results were clear. Of the nearly two dozen federal minimum-wage hikes since
1938, total year-over-year employment actually increased 68% of the time.
