    Well you're not the finance dept. they want to reduce costs and boost profits. Dump the topped out employees, hire the new with reduced benefits.

    When the minimum is raised and you feel that's it's unfair that you don't get a raise ask your employer for one.
    They are good benevolent people always concerned about their employee Family's well being.
    They will thank you for reminding them, I'm sure they are so busy creating jobs that they forgot.

    All I've ever asked if you is that you humble yourself as you take the Welfare, since you aren't in Soc Sec , but instead are on Soc Sec Disability. I see a huge difference between someone who paid the tax until 68-70, working daily in pain, Then retired- vs someone who bailed early on Disability and refuses to acknowledge that its Welfare. Act Humbly my Man. We are not the same...


    Guess I'll have to go back to saying minimum isn't to be lived on...

    The only reason the Dems care is because raises to Minimum are guidelines in most Union Contracts, and most Unions contribute to Dems. As Minimums go up, most contracts go up by at least similar percentages, either at that time or in the next contract. Then the Unions are expected to raise their contributions to the Dems....

    In over 40 years I've never seen someone singled out like that once.
    Maybe it's some occupy theory?

    Republicans raising the social security age to 68-70 now? A lot are going to drop dead before then I can tell you that.
    I'm not here for anyone's approval, I won't get it or do I expect it.

    When the program was started "retirement" age was 65
    life expectancy was 60
    thus using those perameters, with life expectancy being 79, security age would be 84
    think of how much more money the govt would have if they pushed the age back to 84

    You guys think I should kiss your asses.
    You are doing what you have to do that's all, you wouldn't give a dime away if you weren't forced to.
    I'm I grateful to you?
    Please! You greatly exaggerate your importance in this life.

    Like it or not we live in a country that has many, many socialist and cooperative programs for your enjoyment and your families.
    You have benefitted from them but don't realize it. [​IMG]

    You CAN live on minimum wage. Can you prosper? Not likely, but technically you CAN live on it and survive. But if your goal is to prosper, you need to educate yourself and look for better opportunities. If you choose to stay at minimum wage, {and it is a choice} don't whine about your position in life. Otherwise........step up, or shut up.

    Exactly.
    The same fools who are concerned about raising the minimum wage, are also the ones who are supporting the flooding of our country with more un-skilled workers......that are willing to work for lower wages.
    The two issues couldn't be any more detrimental to each other. Either the leftists who support all of these illegals coming here have more concern about getting votes than they do getting higher wages, or they are just plain stupid.
    The jury is still out.

    Yep. And if they don't pay me what I think I'm worth, I walk. And if your types will stop supporting the flooding of our nation with people who will work for peanuts, the employees have more power to demand higher wages.
    You are hurting the American worker's opportunity to achieve the American dream.
    Wake up.

    The average American worker doesn't have much bargaining power with their employer because of people with your beliefs. You guys support flooding the job market with people who will happily take our place for less money.
    Stand up and take a bow for :censored: your fellow citizens.

    To say the least. More like they resent the people give them their handouts for having it to take in the first place. It's not fair.

    I doubt it's even technically possible without a lot of help.
    The town won't allow you to live in a tent at the park.

    Here they throw homeless Vets in jail for loitering in the park.
    Then they are spending a small fortune in order to put up a Veterans Memorial in that same location.

    No bargaining power because people like you disparage Unions.
