    On the other side of the coin though, to think it won't have positive effects is also make believe I think. You are increasing the standard of living for a lot, lot, of people.

    Barely. They still won't be able to survive without assistance or a second job.

    Yes, unemployment increases until business raise prices...or unemployment stay increased with increased labor efficiency to get by with 2 workers instead of 3.

    For me I'm against a national min. wage. I think the states should be the one's to determine min wage and not the federal government. 10 dollars an hour sounds great an all but really doesn't change anything really. Even at 40 hours a week (which is being too generous because most places that have min. wage workers don't give you 40 hours a week. They always try to cut your hours long before that) after taxes you're making around 350 a week. Which still is a drop in the bucket when compared to the cost of living.

    Or at the very least have the national state adjusted.

    I hear you, I know it's not going to move any of these people into the burbs, it's still better than nothing though. I think we're 1 or 2 bad presidential terms away from revolution though anyway, so why not throw the poor a bone. Like I said, extended Bush tax cuts, low federal taxes for the wealthy, low corporate tax, time to give back a little imo. I think this helps a lot more people than it hurts.

    At 40 hours a week though, a 100$ weekly raise to someone who works 50+ weeks is around 5,000$.

    They're magically gonna get more production? Were all the employees slacking off beforehand because times were so good?
