Incredible you guys are crying about min. wage increasing. I know, I know...there will be a deep recession, the market is going to crash, jobs will crumble, our society as a whole is doomed for failure and ultimate anihlation

Min.wage always has and always will suck. But for pete's sake min. wage has only increased $FIVE DOLLARS$ in the past 30 years! You all want to talk your gloom and doom go and talk about the travasty of that.

Minimum wage was never designed for families to sustain themselves forever but rather as a transitional, motivational mode to get to the next level. It was not intended for people who have 5 kids and 2 acres and a $200,000 home. Y'all are just ticked you may have to cut back on your fuel expenses by not running the A/C constantly at full blast to meet or exceed what you have now. Boo Hoo

The biggest problem with making decent $$$ is that the people who are making it just don't appreciate it but come more to think they desrve it. And greed, contrary to popular belief, is NOT good. Being hungry is good. Being hungry keeps you humble. Being hungry keeps you a step ahead of the game. Being hungry makes you more $$$ than greed ever will.
