Re: California Legislature approves raising minimum wage to $10

When they say minimum wage they basically mean it's for extremely unskilled labor aka picking heavy shit up and putting it down, and even then you get paid a dollar or two more..office work is almost always a dollar or two more

you get paid more if you're a us citizen. my co worker af my old job started at 7.50 because he was an immigrant while i started at 9 dollars. (we did the same thing - moving heated glass to carts)

Re: California Legislature approves raising minimum wage to $10

I don't know how to feel about it. I'm afraid that it will make the unemployment rate more worse, and jeopardize the economic recovery in CA. As it is, business's and employee's are feeling it, thanks to obama care. Everything will increase.

while this will seem to help the people at the very bottom, it will hurt smaller businesses because now they're going to have to pay a lot more and since they have to pay more they may have to just not hire as much. and if a smaller business is already barely making due then that's just going to hurt them further. or something like that.

Re: California Legislature approves raising minimum wage to $10

didn't obamacare also raise how much businesses have to pay? not necessarily for paying the employees but for having to pay for it to cover employees or something. i remember papa john being like "im raising the cost of my pizza because of obama care"

Re: California Legislature approves raising minimum wage to $10

yea because papa john is a redneck fuck that doesnt understand how it even works

companies with over 50 full time workers need to give their employees health insurance or something like that

which means it won't affect 96% of companies in the us

Re: California Legislature approves raising minimum wage to $10

obamacare basically means if you work fulltime you have to get the benefits, so papa john's bitch ass basically set it up so all his store employees save a few have hours just under the fulltime hours so he gets the most work out of them without having to give them benefits

Re: California Legislature approves raising minimum wage to $10

(about healthcare) hue

but still here in quebec we had 10,25$ minimum for a while, and I know that the currencies differ it's still a small difference.
also the only jobs that pay that much is usually either doing nothing or something that requires no skill, precision, talking or anything
My job is heavy lifting in a warehouse/factory and my wage is 12 bucks and it's the immigrant wage they offer
people with experience get 16+ bucks and they do less intensive work than me (forklifters get like 19 and crane operators get even more)

not to mention that in alberta the wage is way higher and they have special programs where you get financial help for rent and food
I know a guy that over the course of that assistance made 25 g and then just moved here because it's cheaper to live.

anyways it just surprises me that in us 10 dollars minimal wage is so amazing and that only one state has that
and also that in quebec it's a cheaper place to live even with all the taxes and everything
like to get by alone you need to earn like 400 a month which is what I get in a week

Re: California Legislature approves raising minimum wage to $10

Honestly, I don't think it's a very good idea. I believe this will only serve to increase unemployment or decrease the amount of working hours each employee gets. $1.75 is a big jump in wages and when you shell that out to every minimum wage employee per hour, that adds up to quite a shit ton of money. Sure, lower wages means lower living conditions, but at least they can get consistent hours with consistent pay.

And consistently miss the payments on their home/electricity/associated costs of living because they needed just a few dollars more to feed their children or keep them in school. Never mind the fact all the money they earn goes right back to their employers anyway....

In Ontario, the minimum wage is 10.25 but they want to raise it again.

(Which i think is a fantastic idea)

Re: California Legislature approves raising minimum wage to $10

"You cannot make a man worth a given amount by making it illegal for anyone to offer him less. You merely deprive him of the right to earn the amount that his abilities and situation would permit him to earn, while you deprive the community even of the moderate services that he is capable of rendering. In brief, for a low wage you substitute unemployment. You do harm all around, with no comparable compensation." ~ Henry Hazlitt
