Raising the Minimum Wage

Recommended Posts

Guest slamminshaun

There's a proposal in the Senate to raise the federal minimum wage to $7.25 per hour....Democrats are against it because there's some tax cuts for money that's inherited when you die. Do you think a few rich people getting a tax cut is worth not giving poor people an extra $2.10 per hour?? This is the largest min. wage increase ever. This bill will also cut tuition taxes on college students. What say you?

Crock of shit or not, they ARE against the proposal in the Senate to raise the minimum wage to $7.25. I posted a link...use it. They don't want a few thousand people in the country to get a tax cut even though MILLIONS would get a wage increase.

"More than 6 million Americans would gain directly from the higher wage. About 8,200 heirs would gain $1.4 million each from the estate-tax cut." In other words, Democrats HATE those 8,200 people so much, they are willing to let 6 million people suffer for it.

It doesn't matter now....Democrats shot the bill down. There will be no minimum wage increase for poor people this year.

Why was it a combination bill in the first place?

All bills in Congress are combination bills in some fashion.

And that is exactly the tactic used by republicans in this administration.

Do you have any idea the amount of revenue to the federal government generated by Estate Taxes??? The richer you are, the more taxes you pay when you die... one of the few fair clauses left as opposed to many other loopholes in the tax system today that benefit the rich and continue to widen the gap between the uber rich, the rich and the not so rich.

"Oh, look, we want to raise the minimum wage! we're with you people, not the rich!" showing it off, on the cover, but what they dont show is the myriad of hidden agenda issues shoved into the proposed bill. Look at how many times they tried to include the proposal to open the ANWR in budget bills, iraq releif bills, etc etc etc.

It's a game of politics shaun. You are eating up the propaganda....

I thought politics was give and take? The GOP gave the Demz a HUGE min. wage increase for 6 million people, but wanted less then 0.000004% of the population to get a tax cut. Talk about not meeting in the middle...who the fuck cares if a few rich white dudes gets a tax cut. Is it worth slamming the door on 6 million people over it? Talk about steppin' over a dollar to pick up a nickel. Personally, I am GLAD this didn't pass. A Quarter-Pounder w/ Cheese is expensive enough....

I don't think we would really need this wage spike if gas were under a buck fifty. And if we hadn't gone to war indescrimately. Just my 2 cents.

No shit. A lot of people who live around the poverty line spend an hours wage just getting to and from work everyday. So say you are making minimum wage you are pretty much working a half day to pay for your gas to and from work for the whole week if you live a moderate disatnce from your job...

I imagine the Democrats have done the same thing in the past. It blows, but its politics.
