Re: “Backers of Higher Minimum Wage File Petitions To Ask Voters To Boost Wages

Tony V I understand your point. I agree that many entry level jobs should pay minimum wage, though I do think that should be increased. The problem is the current system doesn't support this. There are many employers who willfully keep a large amount of workers at minimum wage with little to no room for advancement. Even occupations like police officer, teacher and social worker, which provide a high value to our society, have lower wages and limited room for promotion or even pay increases. Ideally we would all work productive valuable jobs where we can earn and do more through hard work and self betterment.

Re: “Backers of Higher Minimum Wage File Petitions To Ask Voters To Boost Wages

Shouldn't the minimum wage be a livable wage? The current minimum wage equals less than 17K a year before taxes at 40 hours a week. That may be fine for a teenager living at home with minimal bills, but how do we expect adults with bills and family responsibilities to make a living on that? Maybe we need to change how we define a "living."
And how exactly would this be any form of socialism? The form of socialism I believe you are referring to would mean everyone gets the same wage regardless. That is not the case here.
I've also heard the argument about people in certain jobs to be not deserving of a higher wage, particularly fast food workers. Then why have these jobs? If there are jobs we deem meaningless, then get rid of them. I agree, there are bigger and better things we could be doing as workers. But these jobs do exist, and someone needs to do them. And I don't think working in fast food is as easy and mindless as you may think. The crap these people take from the general public should be reason enough.
Large corporations and businesses in general may say raising the minimum wage will cause a massive loss of jobs, but I simply do not believe that. How can companies posting record profits with CEOs making millions say that with a straight face? That profit is coming off the backs of the people doing the actual labor.
We seem too concerned with someone taking a piece of our pie just to get an even slice. That's exactly what they want us to think, and we keep falling right into their trap. This election don't forget to vote for Coke or Pepsi.

Re: “Update: Tucson Man Arrested for Conspiracy to Commit Terrorism

Please finish that thought What Again/Nostradamus. At this point I'm morbidly curious how deep your ignorance runs.

Re: “Federal Judge Debates How to Punish Joe Arpaio for Contempt of Court in Racial Profiling Case

If doing your job involves being held in contempt of court, you're doing it wrong. Send him to tent city; they'd love to have him as a guest.
