    The government needs to get out of people's lives.
    Wages and bennies are between the employer and employee. 
    The first time the government demands certain things is the first step of controlling people's lives.
    Humans have the right to freedom of control by others. That's it. It's up to us to better ourselves. 
    When the government starts dictating what a human is worth it starts the slippery slope of prejudice against certain people.

    Didnt last week Biden say there are enough jobs where you dont need an Associates or Bachelor's degree?  If that's the case people should be responsible for their own financing of college. Not government. But that requires work. Today people dont want to work.  If Iwas interviewing people after September when unemployment runs out for a job, Id ask them why they were out of work for 12-15 months.

    Like before I have asked what will happen to the wages of skilled, semi-skilled labor under this increase? No one wants to address this. If I  currently make (whatever amount above minimum) will I see an increase in my wages or will my wages stay the same? A paramedic makes less than or equal to $15/hr. so what about them? Do their wages increase equally?

    God Bless you. You did it the right way.  SSD was for people like you worked your butt off. But, the problem is what I have been saying here for years, the illegals get SSI.   That is what is draining Social security.  Social security was for people who had disabilities and to suppliment Seniors retirement. Not Illegals, and teenage pregnancies.

    Minimum wage IS for minimum skills! 1st I'll say I absolutely agree that servers/bartenders wages should be increased to the same minimum wage as everyone else, plus their tips - they work their a*ses off every day - I used to be one & yes, some days the tips are great, but other days they are terrible. 2nd, I have been the single mother of 3 most of my childrens' lives. Minimum wage wasn't cutting it, so what did I do? I got an Associate Degree, then got a CAREER that paid me HIGHER THAN MINIMUM WAGE, plus bonuses, commissions, & benefits because when your paycheck isn't cutting it, that's what you do! I had 5 licenses through the state & was Certified in Banking. Doing that as a single mom wasn't easy by any means, but it was what I needed to do for us! When things are hard financially, you don't sit on your a*s because that's easier, you try harder! 3rd to be completely transparent & honest, I will say that I am now on Social Security Disability. I have tons of severe health issues which make it so I cannot work anymore. I LOVED my career & wish that I COULD still work! If there were a way, medically, I'd go back IN A HEARTBEAT! It upsets me that I know people who say they "can't find a job" when I KNOW there are SO MANY available, & then here I am, wanting to work again SO BADLY & I truly can't!

    Hubby said this afternoon that a friend who has a business got a letter stating that any former employees who do not come back to work when offered will soon be losing their benefits.  THAT will immediately solve the employee problem.
    BINGO!!

    And many of them don't all report those tips--so they don't have to pay taxes on them.  Then they qualify for "bennies" that those of us that can't hide income pay for.

    I personally know one person here locally that told me they only worked one day a week at a small locally owned restaurant and made $200 or more that one day in tips.

    I've been hearing this slogan a lot on social media.  Obviously, one side is using this as their only defense.  I wonder, what is "a living wage"?  I know people who cannot live off anything less than $150k/year and I know some who live comfortably off of $28k/yr.  Also, this slogan is was apparently drummed up by someone who has never owned a business.  A business is not created to make it's employees rich.  A business is created to make money for it's own survival, while making it's creator/owner money.

    If they cant pay a living wage, they shouldn't be in business.

    So this piece of Liberal scum used his brother's sickness as an excuse to be crooked. Then he started boinking his dead brothers wife while boinking a stripper and getting her pregnant.

    People did notice but yes, putting it in a truck and just driving it away would be the logical choice if they were trying to hide it, which it appears they were. 
    The neighbor tried watching with binoculars, would you have risked walking in the woods to snoop?
