It's time to tell the ILLEGAL ALIEN IN CHIEF to " GO TO HELL ! "

Minimum-wage increase proposals are NOT about minimum wages.
It's about UNION wages (read government employees mostly) and UNION DUES.
Like "Artie" on another thread wrote. So read the following:

I’ve been posting on here since this story broke that it is about payoff to the unions, thanks for the post.

My pleasure.
Since the weak "Establishment Republicans" don't have the guts to IMPEACH the Kenyan Turd,
then the least they can do is to tell him to " GO TO HELL ! "

Why isn’t anyone pointing out the massive inflation that will happen as a result. That hits EVERYONE, as opposed to just blue collar job losses.

In NJ they just raised min wage just slightly and already there’s already a spike in prices of everyday products and services

Most of the LAME Stream Media are either EVIL COMMUNISTS, or they're mind-numb robots, lapping up every thing the ILLEGAL ALIEN IN CHIEF pukes out.

He's a BIBLICAL CURSE !

Fair trade-off and it frees sheeple from “job lock”

/sarcasm

Unaccountable bureaucrats (socialists/fascists/totalitarians) need to hide their plunder of the currency, the devaluation of the fiat paper, from the masses. Enter their accomplices/co-conspirators, the corrupt politicians, as champions of the downtrodden raising their minimum wage.

Root cause? Never addressed.

The root cause of the devaluation of currency by the socialist created FED is never discussed.

“Socialism Is Legal Plunder”. The minimum wage has to keep up with the plunder, otherwise the low-information voters may get restless.

“Why isn’t anyone pointing out the massive inflation that will happen as a result.”

Most of the idiot workers who advocate for this stuff cannot put two and two together and get four. That’s why they work at McDonald’s for more than 2 years.

Minimum wage ain't about minimum wage.
NEVER FORGET THAT!
It's about Union Wage, and government CONTROL.
IF they don't keep the peasants appeased, the peasants will revolt and the corrupt politicians will become their targets.

Oh sure, a lot of peasants and cops will die, but so will the corrupt politicians.
Don't forget, the Marxists are about The Progressive End Game: Top Down, Bottom Up, Inside Out.
But it may not go as well as they think it might.

500,000 jobs probably means it will effect at least double that.

You bet/
You can't ENSLAVE the public, if they have the means to resist you.
And if they have no jobs, and government controls their income, then the EVIL ONE believes he is safe.
He believes WRONG !

The left works much life the devil. Confuse, deny, and corrupt the truth with fallacy.

At this point it’s just theory. The reality is the minimum wage is going to be 0$.

Every time the Kenyan Turd prints money out of thin air, he drives the value of the dollar into the sewer.
If you're not buying silver bullion or the smallest of gold bullion, you better think about it.
What will you do when no one accepts the dollar bill, and demands real value for their goods?

Take a good study of the words "LIBERAL" and "VILE" from the Bible.
You'll be surprised at just how accurate it is in describing todays people that call themselves "Liberal" .

Is the Administration trying to shift subsidies onto the private sector?

The constant push for higher minimum wages, as high as $15, would shift the burden of subsidizing low income and low information people to the private sector.

Government will be praised as heroes while (un) intended consequences would make life worse for those poor subjects who will follow like lemmings down the proverbial cliff.

What they will encounter is to lose eligibility for welfare, food stamps, Medicaid and other State and federal programs, leaving them worse off than before. Because of their newly found “wealth”, they would be classified as the “new middle class” courtesies of their compassionate Administration. All the while the federal coffers would increase because of cost savings.

The evil Corporations would be blamed for causing this problem for not paying for extra subsistence.

I don’t believe that that calculation has not already been made by the Agencies?

This is only my personal opinion and I could be wrong.

Congressional Budget Office: Wage hike would lift pay...

Only a Gov't agency would make a claim such as this.

There’s so much government hype it the article, that it makes one sick, weeding out the garbage.

And as the “new middle class”, of course they'd enjoy paying the government more of their "new and worth-less money" because of their "new tax bracket".

Very interesting analysis.

Here’s something else to consider. The increased min wage will no doubt lead to jobs lost, more part-time vs. full time and more jobs not being created to save on labor costs. Also more automation vs. employees when possible, and increased productivity from existing employees. If Increased min wage still manages to lower the bottom line, it will be made up in product-price-inflation, as a counter to government dictates on business.

Thanks for your take.

So true. Look at what the liberal and their progressive pals have done to our nation’s military. They have forced those who engage in acts of abomination to the Lord and God on our military. I ask all how can a man be a chaplain in this military knowing that these abominations take place? This nation was founded by men and women who sought religious freedom from the Church of England, others churches, plus even Catholics had an entire state to begin with. This nation prospered as people believed in the protestant/puritan work ethic. Now, just as Jesus lost so many followers after feeding the thousands because they wanted more and more, and; then he was worried if he’d even keep the 12.The left has all but banned crosses and signs of our real American religions. It is high time we all fight the good fight and we must rebuke these abominations. Jesus was not nice to the Rabbi’s in the temple with their false teachings/rules. Jude v. 3 Paul was clear to Timothy. In Timothy 6:11 he said -”fight the good fight.”v.12 tells him to GUARD.
