This may be considered off topic, but since most LCO's are small business. I am wondering what kind of effect you think John Kerry's proposal to raise minimum wage to $7/hr over a 2 year period. I know that minimum wage is low, and it is hard for people to raise a family on minimum wage. But I feel that a raise in minimum wage will just raise the cost of living that much more. I for one think that minimum wage jobs are more temporary work then career jobs. A lot of LCO's in my area start workers out at $8/hr. I think they are worth $10/hr. But either way, with a raise in minimum wage. Do you think employees will want a slightly higher starting pay because of the hard work? I know some lazy people would rather take a easy job at Wal Mart then to labor in the heat. If this is true, do you think the industry can handle more cost. I mean cost are climbing at every angle, but prices are the same as 15 years ago. I'm not sure what to expect. Maybe this is what we need to put the undesirables out of business. Maybe it will effect the low pricers, but they will still pop up long enough to keep prices down. Lets hear it, do you think this will effect a lot of LCO's? I'm not wanting any arguing going on in this thread. Civil debating only please.
