“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

B'ham joins the minimum-wage madness

So B'ham is about to raise the minimum wage to $8.50 this week, despite the state legislature trying to fast-track a bill to prevent it.
The plan is to raise it again to $10.10 by Jan 1.
I'm guessing the morons on the city council are unaware of the increase in unemployment that always goes with a minimum wage hike.
I've said it before, if you're making minimum wage for longer than 6 months and haven't earned a raise or you're trying to support a family on a job designed for teenagers, then you've made many horrible life decisions already.
Perhaps you could benefit from the leadership of a life coach more than you would forcing employers to pay you far more than washing lettuce is worth to them.
