[QUOTE]Originally posted by Relentless.: [QB] [QUOTE]Originally posted by Upside: [qb] Ray, for just one minute put yourself in the shoes of a small business owner. Your business provides you with a decent but modest lifestyle and you try to provide for your employees as best you can. Now a 15 dollar per hour minimum wage comes into play and it raises the wage rate of all of your employees from the top to the bottom. If you don't do something the new wage structure will put you out of business. What are you going to do? Seriously, what do you do? Do you risk everything and hope that you can turn up new business knowing that if you fail you're going to go under? Or do you immediately slash costs down to business survival level? Yes, you're preserving your lifestyle while damaging those of your employees but it's your blood sweat and tears that built the business. Are you really going to throw it all away so your employees don't suffer while you do? [/qb][/QUOTE]Give them a clue. How long do you pay minimum wage for a good employee? How long before said good employee learns enough and is capable enough to truly benefit the company such that his reward surpasses the stated goal of $15/HR? That's the real issue here. Idiots languishing on minimum wage. Some idiotic notion that people earn minimum wage their entire lives and it's not their efn fault. If someone is so stupid that they can't, in this country, rise above the lowest of the low? Then fm. [/QB][/QUOTE]
