    I am reasonably educated and still made that statement. As Boner pointed out - you didn't refute my statement - just made another statement. That is like you saying the sky is blue and me arguing you by saying dirt is brown.

    I think it gives most companies the opportunity to increase their profit margins under the guise of the min. wage hike.

    They have a small population.

    Look at their gdp per capita. That's all that matters.

    Loved it when I was washing dishes. But raising the min wage when you have so many unemployed and a major tax bill about to be crammed down the throat of business(Obama Care), is crazy.

    When they are proven irresponsible with such a magnituse of wealth and show they cant be trusted then maybe it is time to look at the 'greed is good' mantra...

    If a country like Poland can go after the people responsible for the bankruptcy of their system, only to bounce back and within 5 years be one of the fastest growing economies in the world then why arent you lot able to do something similar??

    Its like the upper echelon in your country wouldnt know what accountability even meant...

    If you mean breaking laws then that is what the DOJ is for... if you mean some unwritten moral code then you must be asked - Do you want to pass laws based on YOUR moral code

    Complexity difference in the two is important. Still waiting to hear someone on the pro-hike side inform us as to where exactly the extra $$ is supposed to come from in order to increase payrolls. Today's hike by Obama is simple, he'll just borrow it - meaning probably a net loss once interest payment on updated debt is accounted for- something the rest of the private sector can't do when planning.

    It's just a negative plan of action all the way around except for the political ploy. This is the insanity of govt operations vs private sector...no incentive to have a net gain on the govt side with anything. Doesn't add up so what, sounds like a fun thing to do, lets go for it! That will never win in the long run.

    I'm all for targeting the politicians, pay based on accomplishments not votes. And the 'powerless' are the morons who keep voting in this crowd. I say we have voters pass a basic test to prove competency of issues and govt before allowing their vote to go forward. Too much at stake to allow idiots to choose who gets to call the shots. Harsh but accurate.
