Why raising the federal minimum wage is a joke! You have probably read or seen the idea of raising the minimum wage to $15 dollars and hour, why is this a joke? Well, let think about this for a minute or two if you make the employer pay more at the base pay what is he likely to do? Raise prices on the products they make or sell and there goes the raise that the minimum wage was supposed to help . in other words it’s a game of numbers and the people being paid minimum wage are not making any headway no matter how media or Washington spin it .
When OBAMA said’s “I believe we reward effort and determination with wages that allow working families to raise their kids and get ahead. And that’s part of the reason I said last night that it’s time for an increase in the minimum wage because if you work full-time, you shouldn’t be in poverty.”It’s a feel-good moment for him and the uninformed but that about it.there is no getting ahead! prices will just go up to cover it, It won’t pull anyone out of poverty all it is. Is just spin!
