    new zealands min wage is $17.70 nobody lost a job.....theory is if you cannot pay a decent wage should you really be in business?it obivous the business is not making profit or the ceo and managers are so greedy they take the big wages,then theres another idea if people have more money they spend more creating jobs....our verson of wal-mart in NZ pays $18/hour after 3 years employment gauranteeded....so really low wages is hurting your country and its people so they turn to drugs/alcohol or stealing which then really hurts your entire country,wake up greedy american ceo and managers...real businesses pay real living wages,fake business making no profit nneed to be shut down

    Minimum wage should not be increased. People need to get paid what they are worth and McDonald's employees who can't make a simple sandwich should not get paid $15/hr

    I don't have an issue with Seattle raising their wage to $15 an hour. I just don't believe in a blanket system. This isn't a "one size fits all" minimum wage that would not work across the state, nevermind the country.

    What difference does $15 an hour make in a city wear the cost living requires a 6 figure salary to live? When McDonalds has to pay $15 mins a Bigmac cost $10. When Walmart has to pay $15 mins it adds 10% to everything in the store. Big companies pass the buck to shoppers and small companies close their doors or lay off everyone till they go under......... Strange how that works!

    The reason things like this don't work in the USA is because there's no will to make it work. You don't even have free universal healthcare where every citizen is entitled to free basic healthcare.
    In Australia there is a minimum wage and an "award" system where an employer MUST pay the minimum wage. Places like Maccas (McDonalds to the USA) pay above the award wage which is $19 an hour. Most McDonald's employees are getting over $20 an hour and there are no McDonald's going out of business here. Many private restaurants don't go to the wall and out of business due to employee costs. If they offer good service they thrive and pay their employees the minimum hourly rate and most often above it for they want their valuable employees to stay. There are "enterprise agreements" worked out between employers and employees usually with a union speaking for the employees. The management states what they want from the employees and the employees state what they want from the management. Neither side gets everything they want and they don't go marching in the street with placards but they do compromise and come to an agreement that is beneficial to both of them. The "enterprise agreement" cannot pay lower than the "award system". Employers by law also have to pay into a superannuation fund. The employer pays a certain amount and the employee pays a certain amount too. The employer doesn't have any control over the superannuation fund. It's totally separate from the employers business. How much the employer pays is set by law. The employee can pay what ever amount they wish or they don't have to pay at all. If the employee doesn't want to contribute to a superannuation fund, the employer doesn't have to pay more only the set amount they pay for all employees. No more no less. There are two type of superannuation fund. Funds for profit and non profit funds. Funds for profit pay out less than non profit funds due to salespeople getting big commissions for selling packages which often include insurance. Not for profit funds pay out more because they're set up for the members and have no salespeople. These are what are known as "industry funds". People working at McDonald's would join an "industry fund" but it's not controlled by or only for McDonald's. It covers every person in the service sector who ever they work for.
    But you can't have it in the USA because there are so many people who are making a nice living out of the current system. Let employers pay their workers very low wages to maximize the profits of the employer. Employees need to have the public tipping them for if the public don't then they can't survive due to the minuscule wage they're paid. I think many employers in the USA are about to fall of the cliff business wise and paying employees a very low wage hides that fact. Up the wage and they fall off the cliff.

    This is the same with Obamacare. Businesses cut hours and got rid of full-time positions. They also went to high deductible insurance so they could comply with the regulations. In effect costing more employees the loss of jobs or the ability to be proactive about their health.

  • Raymond Kidwell
    Raymond Kidwell Month ago

    I'm all for raising the minimal wage but doubling it does seem extreme. In Seattle though its not that big a deal. Wages and cost of living is already high in the city. There were already a lot of entry level $15 an hour jobs before they raised it. Similar with New York or California given the high costs and high wages there its not too big of a deal. Nationally I think the minimal wage should be around $10 and adjust for inflation each year. This would bring us to about where the minimal wage was in the 50s,60s,70s before the Reagan administration stopped raising it. Actually maybe even be a bit lower because inflation adjusted it was around $10-$11 in today's dollars back then. And in most parts of the country while $10 an hour is still below the poverty line, you can at least scrape by on it until you find something better. If an employer can't afford to pay $10 an hour they might as well lay off people. What's the point of working full time and living homeless?

  • jslearner
    jslearner Month ago

    SUPPLY AND DEMAND: more money in everyone's pockets = more people buy goods = more demand. There is a positive correlation to demand and cost. When demand goes up, cost goes up. More money in everyone's pockets = more demand = inflation. Artificially increasing available money NEVER works. Prices increase to what the market will bare.
    -----------------------
    Take for instance student debt. Increasing student loan limits just caused inflation on tuition. There was a direct correlation to the increase of loan limits and an increase of tuition. The cost will increase to what the market will bear. Schools know students have higher loan limits available = Price shifts to what the market will bear = increased cause of classes.
    -----------------------
    Here is an article that talks about the correlation of student loans to tuition costs:
    www.forbes.com/sites/akelly/2015/10/08/does-federal-student-aid-cause-tuition-increases-it-certainly-enables-them/#7851e64121e0
    -----------------------
    IN SUMMARY:
    1. INCREASING MINIMUM WAGES WILL NOT WORK!!!
    2. If you settle for working at Walmart or McDonalds, DO NOT expect to live on that one job's wages, work 2 jobs. IF YOU DON'T WANT TO WORK 2 JOBS go to school or training to become specialized in an area. This will double your wages instantly once you are done. Invest in yourself and leave behind all those that don't want to do fore themselves.

      yes, you are right Randy, especially when they file their income taxes. Child Tax credit doubled and Earned Income is based on the lower the wages, the more EIC you get. Most wind up getting what they paid in taxes plus the credits. Some filers have gotten 7,000-$8000. dollars back. That is the disgrace of our Government.

    Not trying to be
    disrespectful in any way but the McDonalds argument is totally invalid. Let's
    look at some facts. I'm sure I'm going to get some major backlash for this but
    here goes. The average wage for a McDonalds employee is $9.00/hr
    (www.payscale.com/research/US/Employer=McDonald%27s_Corporation/Hourly_Rate)
    so that would mean a $6.00/hr increase. Multiply that by the 235,000 employees
    that McDonalds has. Then multiply that number (1,410,000) by 40 to represent a
    40 hour work week. That total comes to 56,400,000. But still, we have to
    multiply that by the number of weeks in a year. So take 56,400,000 and multiply
    it by 52. That comes out to a massive $2.93B. In 2017 (couldn't find anything
    more recent but I'm sure the numbers are still close) the combined total of all
    McDonalds executive's salaries is $44,944,532 with an average of roughly 35-50%
    of their salaries being paid in equity, not cash compensation
    (www1.salary.com/Mcdonald-S-Corp-Executive-Salaries.html). In 2018
    total sales/revenue for McDonalds was $21.03B, down by 7.87% from 2017. After
    COG, depreciation and ammortization, GROSS income is $10.79B, up by 1.56% from
    2017. Then you have to take out taxes, interest expenses, Selling, General and
    Administrative expenses, etc, that brings NET income down to $5.92B
    (www.marketwatch.com/investing/stock/mcd/financials). And still you
    have to take shareholders and investors into consideration and putting money
    back into the company. If stock goes down, so does the companies value. You
    also have to think about the fact that some McDonalds don't make as much as
    others making it harder for them to pay their employees $15. It has nothing to
    do with greed and everything to do with economics. It's not feasibly possible.
    The only way that it would work is to up the sales price on food or to
    unfortunately lay off employees, neither of which are ideal circumstances. When
    the minimum wage in Seattle was raised to $15.00, employers were forced to let
    some employees go or make them part time. If any kind of government subsidies
    were being collected, that would be stopped because you now make too much money
    to be able to pull from them for making too much money so you'd be in the same
    exact boat you're currently in. McDonalds started R&D on an automated
    machine to replace all or most employees. If anyone should be upset about
    minimum wage, it should be waitstaff at restaurants. The minimum wage for a
    restaurant waitstaff employee can be as low as $2.13/hr!!!!! The rest of their
    salary being dependent on tips. Now THAT is something to be upset about. If I’m
    wrong about this or maybe missed anything then let me! I never mind learning
    something new.

    If I have 8 employees making $7.50 an hour, and the government enforces $15 an hour. I will keep my 4 best employees and the other 4 will be out of a job. This is the way it works. Work doesn't get done with those 4 employees then my business fails and every employee is out of work. Either way a wage increase caused 4 people to lose their job right away, and hardship for the business owner.

      Why not allow slavery, and take away all job regulations? Afterall who needs wage rules? I say we let all businesses and CEOs do whatever they want and see what happens. Who needs rules right? OR maybe we should listen to economists who actually look at inflation, cost of living and come out with a REASONABLE minimum wage increase to $15. Of course that might be difficult to communicate to people who think in absolutes and extremes.

    I live in Missouri, our minimum wage is around $8/hr. If they slowly raise the minimum wage up to $15/hr over the course of 5 years or so, yes I think I could work. The economy would have ample time to adjust to the raise in pay. Now forcing companies to pay it right away not only scares small businessman but also the inflation would cripple the economy here. It would be as if nobody got a raise at all and the price of everything would rise. Look at what's already happened, small stores just close and run with their money or hours are cut so bad that people are making the same as before the raise, I've worked for 5 years at my job learned new things and became valuable to the company I work for I still dont make $15/hr, the owner of the company said if the $15/he wage is forced he is closing the company. We will all be without a job in stead of a lower paying job. I would rather make a little less than nothing at all. As for fastfood workers making more than me for dipping fry baskets or flipping a burger is in my opinion just not logical, I run an entire warehouse and dont make $15/hr have employees under me that know if this comes to us that they will be fired right along with me. All of us have job skills for more than just the jobs we do, but at $15/hr no one is going to hire us. There are already smaller companies in our industrial park that are burning off inventory and closing up. It's insane that people we have worked around for years and losing their lively hoods over the scare of a forced $15/hr minimum wage. I would rather work for less than $15/hr than to not work at all

    Increasing the minimum wage will cause everything to become more expensive of course, and all you partially employed on some government benefits will now be disqualified for those benefits because they will be slow to update the figures on those.

    $15 an hour in 2019? That is $600 a week before taxes of 38.5% How the hell would anyone be able to live on $15 an hour on the west coast? I earn prevailing wages ($37.52 an hour for those that do not know what prevailing wages are... it means livable wages based on your location) in the state of Nevada and it is almost too expensive here. If I was earning $15 or less an hour I would have to live in a tent. :/

      WE SHOULD MAKE minumum wage $1 an hour, or even allow slavery, and take away all safety rules. Afterall REGULATIONS ARE SOCIALISM!! Who cares if $15 was a REASONABLE wage though up by capitalist economists, I ONLY ARGUE IN EXTREMES AND RIDICULOUS ABSOLUTES TO MAKE MY POINT!!☝

    Anyone getting above $15 gets dragged down and the cost of living, rent, food and everything goes up. Eventually middle class will no longer exist and everyone will be making $20 an hour while the price of banana will be $3. This sounds like communism when everyone makes the same for all jobs

    I would like non compete policies to be abolish than increasing minimum wage to that much. Having a free market would allow employers to compete for talented workers. I mean if the restaurant dont provide better pay or benefits than you pretty much lose good workers to other companies like Amazon, Cheesecake Factory, TGI Fridays, Five Guys, The Home Depot, Lowies, Wal Mart, Target, and many other companies.

    I watched a video a long time ago, where a factory owner that baked bread shared his earnings with all his employees, they averaged $70,000 a year because of this. I don't agree with $15 an hour, but that man who shared his wealth was on to something.

    Massive inflation is what this will cause and then all of our savings will devalue thus making fixed income and retired people poor this tactic is intended to make older voters more receptive to socialism as they are one of the largest segment of active voters. The leftist doesn't care who they hurt whether it's babies not yet born, the poor working man, your grandparents, or children in school, they are the types who think that the ends justify the means! Not acceptable! Free market if people don't want to work for the price that the the employers are offering look elsewhere, don't use authoritarianism to force them to pay you it won't workout automation is on the rise.

    How about paying the workers the 1964 minimum wage of $1.25 an hour but paid in silver quarters . The value of the silver in those quarters is $16 in phoney fiat watered down Federal Reserve Notes ,
