As it is in reality, low pay do without. Well why wouldn't you want the pay
to go up? Giving people more money to burn is more spent more sales tax,
more into social security making better cost of living increases.
It puts the money where you need it. Why have people walk with no cars or
drive cars with no bumpers or old cars that will blow up in time.
Well they do. In the 90's in Tulsa there was many old 70's, 80's cars
leaking oil all over the place. They mostly died a victim of low wages!
I believe people should be able to live like a American not like
a third world country. Why walk with no car why live with no AC
because you can't afford it! What do you work for? Pay the bills, boom broke!
Why have a boom the labor force is now walking with no cars.
How are people with no cars to help they have less consumer demand!
Make nothing, have nothing and well why have stores I mean there is nothing
I can afford there anyway...
I would rather see the wages go up! For one it makes a stable labor force.
You get what you pay for. Offer the lowest pay get the bottom of the barrel.
In I/O Psychology that is a point that needs to be talked more about!
It's a sick path that needs to be fixed, changed for help and growth of the
workers. No adult should have children wages. Children don't pay rent,
pay for health care, make a car payment or even get a loan.
"Sorry your income is too low!"
So as you can see there is a need for better pay... To not impoverish the consumers!
And with better pay is better living being able to get a car, fix your car, pay your bills!
Or even to say this house is not for sale as you can pay your payments now!
A time for more money to be put back into the economy not people staying home
broke. Broke helps no one!
Also I do look forward to the end of Republicans obstructing wage growth.
It's about time that ended! Well what you want more obstructing in your own life?
~~~~~Business for a Fair Minimum Wage Federal Sign On StatementAs business owners and executives, we support gradually raising the federal minimum wage to at least $12 by 2020. It’s good for business, customers and our economy. Today’s outdated minimum wage has far less buying power than it had in the 1960s. Stuck since 2009 at $7.25 an hour – just $15,080 a year – the minimum wage impoverishes working families and weakens the consumer spending at the heart of our economy.
Raising the minimum wage makes good business sense. Workers are also customers. Minimum wage increases boost sales at local businesses as workers buy goods and services they could not afford before. And nothing drives job creation more than consumer demand. Businesses also see cost savings from lower employee turnover and benefit from increased productivity, product quality and customer satisfaction. The most rigorous studies of the impact of actual minimum wage increases show they do not cause job loss. Raising the minimum wage will keep more dollars circulating in our local economy and reduce the growing strain on our social safety net caused by inadequate wages.
We support gradually raising the federal minimum wage to at least $12 an hour by 2020, and then adjusting it yearly to increase at the same rate as the median hourly wage. This will restore the lost value of the minimum wage, assure the wage floor does not erode again, and make future increases more predictable.
