Effects of Minimum wage in Seattle

Recommended Posts

Nobody should start at a beginners wage.   Everyone deserves at least $100k starting off.

Even if anyone was to consider base min wage it should be full-time work only

Including kids part time work is liberal retardation and lack of liberal thinking at it's finest

There's no doubt we pay the wrong people way too much money in this country and that's a big part of why it's failing. When we put white collar hucksters on a pedestal there's no doubt we're heading in the wrong direction, I call it white collar terrorism.

You know maybe just maybe people can look at the larger picture and see that if higher MW hurts more than it helps its a bad idea.

And maybe they cant see the bigger picture. This argument goes nowhere with some so its not worth fighting.

I made a pretty good living being a union worker right out of high school. The non union option for that same job was half the pay and zero benefits. Life would have been alot harder that way and the neighborhood I lived in would have looked alot different. We all pay for the poor one way or another, i think its best to let them work for it themselves, others think its best to let companies use welfare subsidized workers.

Well between loss of jobs and increase in COL putting zero extra in the pockets of those its suppose to help makes it a fools errand in my book.  

Where do you think MW should be?   And for those that have earned their way to a higher wage are you willing to pass on the same increase up the ladder to all those people?

Well what most business savy people in here probably dont know is that there is already a prevailing wage for every county in the country for each type of labor job. Its based off of economic data from each area to arrive at those rates. Doesnt seem all that difficult to tie MW to that.

Excellent point and one I've made numerous times in here however I think even by county it can get tough.   For example Iowa City where the U of I is can likely support a higher MW than say the little town of Lone Tree or Oxford.   This actually came up when Johnson County was looking into MW.  

What about the people who worked to earn the higher MW?   What increase do they deserve?   Straight dollar increase or a equal % increase?   Where should it stop?

Well its already being done, i deal with it everyday. Prevailing wages in chicago are at LEAST $10/hour higher than they are just 60 miles to the south and they drop off more from there the further out you get. 

Its not about what they deserve, we are talking about minimums which most agree are too low. They can build from there if they want to put in the work.
