What’s going on is humans are becoming obsolete.Makes u think that maybe the ones we call our leaders are not human
that’s not what the commerce clause is for. people like to use that excuse to get their political agenda into law. they use the commerce clause for everything the federal government does. read the Federalist papers and you’ll understand the constitution better.Like most issues, there are good arguments on both sides of whether to raise the minimum wage. I worry about mom and pop businesses. But I'd like to see workers able to make enough money to live.
The federal government has authority under the commerce clause of the constitution and has set the minimum wage for a long time. If that were unconstitutional, we would have known that a long time ago.
Robots are coming regardless of the minimum wage, and as pointed out, maybe faster due to increases in the minimum wage. But robots will take more than just minimum wage jobs. In another 10 years you'll see automation of almost every profession, and in 40 years, robots will do most of the work. A much bigger problem than whether to raise the minimum wage. If you want to rebell about something, that's something that will probably be worth rebelling over.
The commerce clause has been so utterly abused and is one of the top agenda items to fix on the Constitutional Convention drive.that’s not what the commerce clause is for. people like to use that excuse to get their political agenda into law. they use the commerce clause for everything the federal government does. read the Federalist papers and you’ll understand the constitution better.
The government isn’t supposed to own people and put a price on their labor. that’s oppressive.
Are you in Cali? lol, maybe I worked for the same company...hah hah hah!Its best to make yourself worth more pay than it is to have the gov require your employer to pay you more. as stated above increasing min wage ultimately drives wage inflation which increases cost of goods and services so it becomes a wash to min wage employees. Min wage jobs were never intended to be careers. example. I serve on the board of directors for a non profit ( I donate my time) As my state has been increasing min wage our costs to operate have been drastically increased as many of our employees are students and payroll is our largest expense. We serve a lot of low income families, as our payroll costs go up we are now faced with 2 possibilities... 1. Increase the cost of services. Or 2. reduce services and lay ppl off. Daycare is a big part of services provided. lots of single parent and low income families that we serve. We provide "scholarship" $ to really low income families... I hate to see that expense increase for them which effectively lowers their take home pay so we can pay students more $$
