    How bout $0 an hour when these businesses shut down, because they can't afford their payroll or customers start complaining about about Big Macs that cost $15. These economic genius's like Bernie Sanders and this nutcase know NOTHING about economics and believe that the United States can just start printing more money or raise taxes to pay for all their nonsense. How bout we raise the minimum wage to $50 hour and then watch business cut hours from 40 hours a week to 15.

    Un-****ing-real... she's a member of Democratic Socialists of America, is she not? As such, of course she's eager to spend other people's money. Why does not she go and experiment with her policies elsewhere, like in Ramallah or in the Gaza City and if they work, bring them back home?

    She realizes that raising the minimum wage literally makes everything else even more expensive to compensate right? She knows how the economic system works right?

    My wife runs a non-profit summer day camp for underprivileged youth. If she's forced to pay $15 an hour, the camp goes under. They barely get enough donations to pay $10/$11 an hour to their employees (which is already above minimum wage in FL).

    Hmmmm.....that might be a little too high for me. How about $75/hour and an autograph picture of Betty White?

    This is just the latest 'ante' in a radical Democrat 'bidding war'. Whoever offers the underachiever slacker slobs the most 'free stuff', 'subsidies', and other low-hanging fruit, like a vastly inflated minimum wage will get to be the Democrat presidential nominee!

    And, during a Democrat regime, the slacker slobs won't even mind that much if they get fired because the company they worked for had to cut its workforce, or go out of business. Why? Because under another regime like that of "Messiah" Obama (or worse), the slacker slobs can all go on 'unemployment' for three years, and then move over to Social Security 'Disability', and be set for the rest of their worthless, useless lives! :banana:

    Well she better call Bernie, I'm certain his head is exploding reading that she wants $20 hour, hell he won't have a campaign left. He just had to cut hours by 30% to cover the $15 his campaign union that he created, demanded. This is getting good.

    Anybody can "propose" anything. Like a $20/Hr. Min. Wage.

    Tlaib could "propose" that Bigfoot be named Dictator for Life.

    ^Neither of the above things have any chance of actually happening and becoming law, so why would anybody get their panties in a twist?

    Over something that has ZERO Chance of actually happening?

    This Tlaib Obsession is just the Daily Dose of RW Manufactured Outrage.:bored:

    Here the view of another socialist:

    Appearing on Telemundo, President Donald Trump suggested he might be in favor of a federal minimum wage which is even higher than the $15 amount proposed by many progressives.

    “That’s a very low number, the $15,” Trump said. “And I am actually looking at that…I am looking at that.”

    Why does Trump hate your wife?

    Minimum wage laws are designed to idle the unskilled poor. They work.

    Well, Trump was a Democrat. He is always willing to compromise for unity and peace. :)
