“I wonder how much getting paid $6 or $4/hr would negatively impact consumption because that’s not a livable wage ”
It’s not a livable wage, but, it is an opening for an entry level position, wherein the poor and young can gain experience. They can use that experience to move up and get a higher salary. Point is, the minimun wage puts up a barrier for entry level positions for the young and poor.
Why would a business hire someone who isn’t worth the mandatory minimum wage? The minimun wage essentially forces businesses to hire people who are worth less to them than the minimun wage. So, they don’t. Why train the young and poor for the minimun wage when you can just hire someone already more skilled? It just so happens that the young and poor are the least skilled, so, naturally, they are the ones who lose out on jobs. The very people the minimun wage is intended to help.
Cont’d Lastly,it’s not true that there’s “no incentive” for people to demand jobs/working opportunities;of course there’s an incentive, unless people like living in a 600 sq. ft. apartment or 1000 sq. ft. home for the rest of their lives on welfare, just barely getting by, there’s an incentive to get out of that house and succeed,which requires a desire for jobs and working opportunities. Probably 80-90% of people have this incentive, so it’s not so simple to say everyone’s demanding free money.
and perhaps increase debt because people can’t get by, so they’re forced to take out loans etc. It seems like a delicate balance to me that needs further thought: does having a minimum wage decrease the amount of jobs created and hence decrease consumption more than not having a minimum wage where you may ahve more jobs but less cumulative consumption/spending power from those jobs becuase the wages are so low? Basically, which hurts consumption more? I’m not sure of the answer.
I’m curious if you could explain your reasoning because I’m not sure I understand how that would help students? How does it make them “lose out” on jobs? Are you trying to say that forcing businesses to pay $8 or whatever in minimum wage means that they won’t make more jobs? I’m not sure that’s true, if $8/hr deters a businessman from making a new job compared to $6/hr. I wonder how much getting paid $6 or $4/hr would negatively impact consumption because that’s not a livable wage Cont…
Blow dealt to Rmoney over the weekend!
Ron Paul gains 44 more Delegates — Rmoney gets only 6 !!!
Rmoney’s camp Attempt TO DEFRAUD the Elections — by sending plants using FAKE delegate badges and circulating FAKE delegate slates, and even impersonating real delegates — BACKFIRES! It only helped to galvanize The People in further rejecting Perfidy Mitt!
As of May 7th:
More good news for Ron Paul — according to RNC rule #38, the Mitt has probably lost about 50 bound delegates to him; while Ron Paul has probably gained that number.
Therefore, it could be that the more accurate numbers are:
Fox New’s REALITY CHECK Show is the source for the above numbers. Watch this video and pay attention the explanation of Rule #38 (from minute 3:15 till end of video –4:23).
Rmoney = FRAUD…!
Caught on tape!
Fraudulent imposter with Fake Pass planted by Romney, passing around FRAUD ballots at Nevada state convention caught on camera in detail:
WA Ron fucking Paul 2012
Four easy steps to assure Ron Paul wins in 2012:
Ron Paul wins 22 out of 25 delegates in Nevada!
Lessons learned HOW TO ASSURE a GOP Convention is properly run (so Ron Paul is not cheated of TRUE delegates by the desperate frauds committed by Rmoney’s PLANTS!):
1) Have two or more patrolling the venue to CATCH Mitt’s goons trying to pass FAKE PAPER COPIES (as they did in Maine and Nevada) and have them removed from the premisses (making sure each one is photographed/ video taped/ live stream shown…so they can be identified later).
2) Make sure all Badges are legitimate (not ink-jet printed FAKES) before ANY are allowed to be heard at the Convention.
3) Tape ALL proceedings (from many angles!) — even better to have them live-streamed to thousands outside. See how to easily set up live-streaming by watching the last video — “my setup”.
4) Stay till the VERY END — make sure you (the Ron Paul supporters) are the LAST ones to leave the building (because, in the last few minutes, Mitt’s Goons will try to ANNUL the Actual Delegates Elected, and by subterfuge replace them with their own fake delegates)!
After spending about six hours watching eight videos from USTREAM (Nevada Convention) — the above are my conclusions!
See them for yourself below to form your own:
those are such lies Dont belive them Dr. Paul …. Romney has no Delegates ….
you got all the delegates !! you won all the states … !! RON PAUL WON ! who ever tells you otherwise , is lieing … those are not corekt numbers we see …
its very likely Ron Paul has already won ! not Romney . Paul is the winner !
One of the most helpful things to the young and the poor is getting rid of the minimun wage. Many people lose out on jobs they could have because of the min. wage. They could get low paying entry level jobs and get experience and training in order to move up. But, there is no incentive for people to demand jobs and working oppurtunities. Instead, they demand free money. It’s like a cat begging for food instead of hunting a rabbit. It has no incentive to hunt the rabbit.
I can remember an intelligent thing Newt Gingrich said one time. He said something along the lines that the poor should be demanding more jobs and a productive economy instead of demanding free money from the pockets of tax payers. This is true. And the reason why people don’t nowadays, is because the government has made all of these people dependent on handouts. They have no skills, and have few employment oppurtunities.
Canadians for Ron Paul!
MI for RON PAUL.
The choice is obvious; Mitt is a Salesman, Ron Paul is a TECHNICIAN! We need a TECHNICIAN right now to repair the cushions broken by the bushes!
Salesmen come only to sale us Debt!
Alex Jones has been selling Ron Paul short on his radio show for several weeks now. The mantra is “they stole the election early – too bad he can’t win”
That’s a bullshit, defeatist attitude and it’s having a very negative affect on his campaign.
Tell that idiot to stop saying Ron Paul can’t win!
It’s good to live in a Police State (for those controlling the dogs….”Animal Farm” by George Orwell).
Snatch and Grab, Arrests, and Tear Gas at Oakland 5-1-2012
Unless Ron Paul wins — we’ll truly become a Police State!

What did this young girl do, to get the Dogs-of-State to pursue and knock her of her bike brutally to the ground, and then maul her into painful submission?
Watch carefully the chronological order (FREEZE picture at the time count given below — to see why):
1) 0:32 — one of the Dogs-of-State signals the rest that he’s seen a cyclist taking a picture of “SOMETHING THAT MUST NOT BE SEEN”! So they run in pursuit.
2) 0:44 — she is dragged down by two Dogs-of-State
3) 0:51 — many more “Gang-of-Brothers” arrive surrounding their victim being mauled on the ground
4) 0:57 — see the hand taking her cell phone away from her
5) 1:10 — she manages to free one hand
6) 1:11 — she tries to pass it in desperation to the people outside the circle of about a dozen Dogs-of-State trampling her rights
7) 1:12 – 2:03 — she is still screaming in pain…but no-one can help her (since the AGGRESSORS, The Dogs-of-State are ARMED, and thus can inflict pain AT WILL on the disarmed, peaceful citizens)!
And more abuses follow!
This is the MOST DISTURBING VIDEO I’ve seen taped on American soil!
DISGUSTING is mild — words fail me to describe my feelings on this OUTRAGE — watching the ‘US KGB’ MAUL and ABUSE a young girl!
Don’t know what you’ll do about it — but I’m sending this to Judge Napolitano, the ACLU, News Media outlets, and even contacting my Lawyers to look into filing a civil case against these SS Troopers (hopefully pics can be enlarged so their badge numbers can be seen)!
China for Ron Paul!
