Smart business models like McDonals are already prepared for higher minimum wages... people will be replaced with machines to keep margins and cost down.. They will delete 10 people from a crew and replace them with 8 machines and one guy or to opperati the machines. (You know how Walmart has self service now ) Order your own meal etc.

Do you think that if minimum wage went up, wages (already) above minimum would too?

People who are against raising minimum wage often complain that it will just raise the prices for consumers. However, this is ONLY if the egotistical, selfish corporations won't cut their profits. They DO NOT NEED to make as much money as they do, trust me I know some folk who OWN a couple McDonalds and it's ridiculous how much they make. When I told the owner he should raise minimum wage to $15 he said they'd just push that cost off to the customers. Well that's why we're in the situation we're in, selfishness. IT'S ABOUT TIME WE PUT PEOPLE BEFORE PROFITS !

So because you know someone that worked hard to become store owners (trust me, you don't jump from flipping burgers to owning stores) then you think they deserve to suffer? That just sounds like jealousy.

CEOs are not going to be taking pay cuts; it's going to be the working-class middle-man that does. This only hurts the middle class that is already struggling to survive. Prices WILL go up, whether people think they should or not, thus negating the extra pay. Oh, this will affect groceries as well. How will the middle-class pay for that? They aren't getting a pay raise out of this.

What about the elderly, of which I'm one. I have a limited amount of money. No more coming in EVER. So prices go up and the years I did without so my retirement money would last my lifetime...suddenly my "lifetime" becomes shorter and shorter because my money runs out. I applaud people who work for low paying jobs to begin with, but they are able to make choices and work their way up to higher wages like I did. It might take more work, to make more money..but that's your choice. Also, if employers could reward good workers with decent raises, then those who deserve better pay could work harder and receive better pay. Life just isn't easy and nobody is "entitled" to receive more than they're worth.

Sadly, people feel entitled to more than the job they might be in is worth. What's going to happen to warehouse & other workers who are paid above minimum wage but not $15 per hour? Are they then going to be the low wage workers? Stop and think

if the minimum wage is raised above their current wage, their wage will go up. Hence calling it minimum wage. It's the least you can pay someone. So if a person is currently getting 11.25 an hour, that's 4 bucks above minimum wage. A decent employer would raise their wage to $19, keeping it $4 above minimum wage. More likely, though, their wage would go up to the bare minimum.

Are you living in the real world? Every time minimum wage goes up the rest DON'T...I worked at a job that was 7.35 an hr when min wage went up to 7.25...wanna know how much my pay went up?? NONE...I was then basically a min wage worker trying to afford the same stuff that the prices went up on...raises were then also stalled due to the impact of the increase of costs. That was a .70 raise they got for DOING NOTHING and my work went to being pointless...if minimum wage goes up to 15$ an hour I may just give up and go on disability-which I would qualify for as stress adds to issues with one of my disabilities-making min wage what I make now would kill me-so why try anymore?

I'm sorry, I know there are some workers who are honestly underpaid and this would be a good thing, but to raise the overall minimum wage is a joke. Just 2 weeks ago, McDonalds couldn't make my son a simple hamburger with no pickles and they added cheese. It's on the receipt properly but people are just too lazy and shouldn't be paid for it.

It would hurt small buisness owners such as mom and pop ect. Bigger corporations should pay more so that people are able to suport their familys. We have people working 40 or more hours and they still live in poverty.Still don't have enough money for bills and enough food.That's a shame!

People need to realize that some businesses only make money hand-over-fist because they make nickels and dimes on /thousands/ of transactions. If I got a penny from everyone in the world, I'm rich, but I cant help everyone even a little bit, and even if i gave that entire fortune away equally to just the poor it still wouldnt help much. Its smarter and more helpful long term to invest profits in R&D for tech and medicine, and some charities, than to try to help everyone all at once.

There is something to be said for a little hard work and determination. Handouts are needed at times, but are not meant as a permanent means to living. People need to realize that wealth does not just happen in a day. It takes a lot of man hours, physical and mental labor. The jobs that are paying minimum wage are necessary for our economy but are usually not meant to be held as a career. If they were, what reason would anyone have for wanting to better themselves and the world around them?

Well, it's a good idea for now--but the rest of the economy will adjust quickly (rent will go higher, for example, to compensate for the increase), and it won't matter.

Minimum wage doesn't go very far at all, though.

In a scenario where I had a small business and had lets say 4 employees. In pennsylvania minimum wage is 7.25 an hour. So taking out any possible benefits every single employee is making that. If my theoretical business had to raise this wage to $15 an hour, if we were barely getting by as is, i have a few options. I can either cut the benefits of the employees who are working for me, which may cause them to leave. I can fire atleast one of them, but in this situation may need to fire two of them, to afford to pay the others. Or I can sacrifice my own families well being to continue to pay for the employees, and instead of having any income myself, be losing money to the business. This situation is a shitty situation and there is no actual gain to the economy, it leads to people losing money or maybe even being jobless.

I could see something like 10/11 being a more reasonable push to help companies adjust. Instead of nearly doubling it.

I think it depends on how the company increasing the wage would do it. Would they increase prices or make other adjustments to compensate or would they cut their workforce to raise the wage to $15.00. I think an increase is necessary though, even if it isn't to $15.00.

What about all the raises CEOs give themselves? your paying more for products because of those raises or bonuses. I don't see any trolls crying about the millionaires paying themselves more. People cry about food stamps and now people are crying about a wage increase. Must be nice to be be in a position to talk badly about a minimum wage worker being given a living wage. Wages at certain burger place were increased here where I live, a burger went up a whole whopping 39 cents wow. Prices will always be on the rise. If people can not afford to buy things then they either end up on assistance or end up stealing. Using the excuse well maybe they should make better choices or get a better paying job isn't as easy as you think. People fall on hard times and they should be able to easily get a minimum wage job that pays a living wage.

I did live on minimum wage when it was 5.15/hr and still managed to support 4 other people ON IT. I lived...I just had to make choices like not getting a cell phone, not going to the movies all the time, cooking at home, eating at work where I got a discount. It is more than liveable, you just have to make smart or at least necessary choices.

ok think about it...wages went up in your area 2 bucks...and things went up 39cents...however...you make it nationwide...then lets say like mcdonalds...the cost of the beef they buy goes up, the cost of the lettuce, soda, tomatoes, etc all go up. They will not take the hit for that...so your 1.00 burger becomes a 4.00 burger...and then you wonder why did it go up so much...because they don't get their supplies from just one area-so the cost in your area only went up .39 but you do that everywhere then the cost of everything goes up and it snowballs.

Both my mom and I would agree that it would be a good idea. Ever since I have been out of school, the wage has been stagnant while the costs have increasingly gone up. Did you know that the minimum wage established minimum wage to be a livable wage? Cut the lawmakers down to the minimum wage that everyone else gets. It is sad when the minimum wage calculator shows that the wage needed to no longer be in poverty for someone working full time is twice what the current minimum wage is!

The source of the funds are irrelevant. A CEO is the closest private sector comparison to the President and they will always get paid more than the President regardless if the President is good or bad. You could always move to another country and not buy his product.

Go do the math. The president makes $400,000 a year. He receives a pension upon leaving office of $193K per year. Say he earns that for 30 years (varies depending on how long they live). That is $5.8M total. Here is some random CEOs and how much they make in a single year: Office Depot ($19.6M), Coca-Cola ($20.4M), Disney ($46.7M), Microsoft ($84.3M).

Members of congress make $174,000 per year. Considering their level of responsibility, that isn't that much and their aren't that many of them to begin with. Also, they don't get their full pay for life. They have to serve for at least 5 years to be eligible for government pension. Their pensions are somewhat similar to the pensions of the military.

Because the person working in McDonald's serves the nurse and the office worker the food they do not have time to make for themselves or are too busy to make for themselves. And they put up with a lot more boneheads than anyone else and often with no breaks. They risk slips and falls. They have to multitask and think on their feet. If you think it is so easy, go do it for a couple of days. Then you might actually be more empathetic toward them.

There definitely needs to be a raise, but it'd be a better idea to have it be a state to state thing rather than a flat rate.

$15 an hr is asking a lot in my area, but $9 is certainly not enough. We'd probably settle for $11 or $12 and that would be neither too high or too low and quite do-able considering available funds at most of these places.

It is a good idea. That and leveling the wage so that the disabled actually get paid minimum wage. If it only helps a few get out of poverty so they no longer need to fall back on the social safety net programs while working full time, then it only helps a few, but that is a few more that no longer need the safety net. It is actually criminal that anyone can be working full time but still be making less than the poverty level. Better yet, cut the salaries of the lawmakers to minimum wage. They certainly don't deserve what they are being paid.

Minimum pay was designed for "starter" type jobs. If all employers raise the minimum wage to $15, the cost of goods & services will also go up & they still will not be able to afford anything. By the way, my husband & I started working as teens and made minimum wage for years until we had the skills & education to make more money. We didn't have to have a new SUV, smart phones didn't exist and we rarely went out to eat or to a movie - but we survived and learned to appreciate what we had & what we could afford.

If only the world really worked like that still, hmm?

84% of fast food workers are adults. 25% have some college education. I doubt any of them work in fast food because it's easy, I lasted about a month in high school before I got so disgusted by the environment and customers I quit. I have a college degree, and still don't have work in my field. Every single person at the Starbucks my sister works at has a bachelor's degree. There aren't a lot of better jobs available.

These jobs used to be kid jobs. Now, the majority of fast food workers are 25-54 years old, and a third of them have kids.

Companies with minimum wage employees will raise prices a LOT, plus a LOT of people will get laid off and taxes will increase because a lot of the people who got laid off will go on unemployment. So even the people who get paid more won't benefit that much because they'll have to pay for things and pay in taxes and they'll have a more stressful working environment because the company won't be able to afford to pay as many people. Trust me when I say that working in a fast food place is WAY harder when you don't have workers. I've been there. And then there's the fact that service will decrease because we have to rush to get your food and are more likely to mess it up because there isn't time to check the order before going on to the next one. Or we do check the orders but then you have to wait in line WAY longer than you should at a fast-food place. In conclusion, raising the minimum wage that much will cause a lot more harm than good.

The reason prices have gone up (thereby depressing the buying power of the minimum wage) is that the Federal government has for years been devaluing the dollar as a tactic to close the trade deficit, mostly due to Chinese exports. This policy started early on in the Bush presidency and was continued by Barack Obama (not a partisan issue). The dollar is currently worth about 40% of what it was twelve years ago, while real world inflation has been flat. Remember how over the last eight years inflation has been near zero, but prices still went up? This is why. Instead of breaking the minimum wage we need to value the dollar properly.

minimum wage used to be for high school kids trying to earn some cash and get some work experience. the jobs were for those who lacked higher education or a professional skill/trade. you want a higher wage obtain one of the before mentioned.

TBH, Guaranteed Minimum Income is really what's needed, not just a minimum wage raise, but that's a hard thing to convince people of in the US.

raising the minimum wage would be ideal if it weren't for corporate greed. it would most likely result in mass layoffs

I chose bad idea, however I am sort of neutral, just more so against. Because once we raise the minimum wage, everything else increases. It decreases the value of the dollar. Though if everything else stayed the same price, I'd definitely be for it raising, maybe not to $15 though. Everyone deserves a living wage.

If you raise the minimum wage, then jobs requiring degrees and experience would need higher wages. That would all lead to housing and food costs increasing.
