Duh. A minimum wage hike just jacks up prices.

I know this isn't news to anyone on this site, but it does illustrate that leftists just mask their real intent with pablums and bromides.

Here's what the real policies should be regarding business:
1) No corporate taxes. Any tax on a business gets passed to consumers precisely the same way a minimum wage does - effectively taxing people twice. ALL "corporate" taxes should be eliminated.
2) Eliminate the minimum wage - entirely. Let businesses and employees decide on how much a particular task is worth and who is willing to engage in that task for that price.
3) A law that says that interference in an employment arrangement by the government constitutes de facto tortious interference and such matters may be pressed against individuals in government positions personally and individually, ie without immunity.
4) Eliminate payroll taxes including FICA, Medicare, etc. If the government wants to tax income (another subject), make them do so by ticking off taxpayers directly than by stealth taxation through business owners. ;)

    Well, I got asked one I can't answer. "If our kids aren't in school, why do we keep paying school taxes?"

      Guessing they'd tell us the teachers need to be paid & the Taj Mahal schools they keep forcing down the taxpayer's throats are bonded for 20+ years...
      I'm so sick of "Oh, it's for the students!" I went to an elementary school that was an old (1890's) building which had hot water/radiators for heat in each room, no air conditioning, and a gym that was just big enough to play dodgeball...Things didn't get much better in Jr. or Sr. High School. I think I turned out ok.

    Exactly. Minimum wage hike to $15 will cause us to get rid of 1/3 of our employees and send more work to china and vietnam. It will also cause us to spend more money on automation and perhaps get rid of some management as a result

    I have some platform statements for the New Special Democratic American Party (the NSDAP for short). Here it is.

    1. The Minimum Wage shall be at $15,000 per hour.
    2. The workweek shall be no more than 14 hours per week. Double time for overtime or for weekend work.
    3. The work week shall be Tuesday and Wednesday. All other days are the weekend.
    4. Money and crucial goods shall not be hoarded. Local committees are authorized to seize hoarded money and goods.

    Didn't I read a Directive something like this fantasy in some book somewhere? 10-289 maybe?

    As long as we are dreaming about what we won't get without a revolution:
    Eliminate income taxes. They stifle production, creativity, and create unemployment.
    Eliminate taxes to support state propaganda centers (public schools.)
    Hang everyone who has sworn to defend the constitution and has purposely broken that oath.

      A violent revolution isnt something that we would really enjoy going through. I am not sure we can actually get any reforms without one, however. Once the leftists take away our ability to have change through voting, the only think left IS revolution

    I still say this minimum wage hike is an effort by the Liberals to do away with all welfare assistance. I don't think it's gonna work. People like subsidized rents, food stamps, free child care, kiddy meals, etc. I've visited with the County Welfare Officer in many homes living on Section 8 Housing.

      Welfare assistance is a means to an end. They want to give away freebies in order to secure votes and grow their power, but the endgame is total enslavement. And they won't start with that until they eliminate our republic and destroy the Constitution. I give them another couple of years. o^0

        The USA is going to crash and be overtaken by even more collectivist countries. I am old enough I wont really see it, but to the younger people- watch out who you vote for.
