$15 is pretty reasonable in places like DC, California, New York, Maryland, and Maine. But if you're looking at cheap places like Virginia, Alabama, Texas, and Georgia, it should be closer to $10. And everywhere else on a sliding scale. The government knows what the cost of living is basically everywhere, military housing allowance is based on it. Just set Minimum wage on the same trend. Easy.

Okay yeah doctors make a lot, that is common knowledge... What does that have to do with what I said?

You should read it again. No, they don't make nearly as much as you think after you consider education and cost
User avatar
#143 - twiceasfun (02/12/2016) [-]
Yeah they have education costs to pay, but they are way better off than most, especially those that make minimum wage, and they do make plety to live off of and then some. And I'm still wondering what that had to do with my point? Because I was just saying that minimum should be liveable and some other people also deserve more

Sorry, I guess I wasn't explicit. I agree that minimum wage should be livable. Absolutely. Problem is, bernie wants to pay for his programs by taxing people in the "doctor" tax bracket when really, a better solution would be to simply cut spending.

Increased taxes, when the money is allocated properly and put back into the community unlike the government is currently doing has historically proven to be a positive thing, but yeah, there are other ways to fund shit

It won't solve shit genius, do you think if the minimum wage is raised, that the the price of everything will stay the same? No, it will double, so it will be the same shit...

The minimum has been raised to over $10 in several states and has had no negative effect. By your logic, prices would be raised 25%

They aren't. Everything is going to be just fine.

#118 - desmondaltairezio (02/11/2016) [-]
the problem i am having is that there must be a limit to how high you can raise the minimum wage before there are adverse effects and i do not know where that limit is. To me $15 seems excessive. I could be wrong but i really idk

Yes, in sates where the ccost of living is higher than average already, nation wide it will cause nothing but problems...

You don't have to read the whole thing. But here's some research done by professionals. I'm not going to cite properly, because idgaf. But here's some quotes. It's a meta-study. So most of my quotes are quoted from other people in the study. I have homework to do. Why am I wasting my time on this?

goo.gl/PTXMJB

"Their summary of the theoretical and empirical research through the late 1970s suggested that any "disemployment" effects of the minimum wage were small and almost exclusively limited to teenagers and possibly other younger workers."

"The resulting estimates varied, but revealed no statistically significant negative employment effects of the minimum wage: "The largest in magnitude are... positive [and] statistically significant... Several are economically irrelevant though statistically significant and several others [are] slightly larger but...statistically insignificant.""

" "[t]he main policy recommendation deriving from such findings is that policy makers can use the minimum wage to increase the wages of the poor, without destroying too many jobs or causing too much inflation." "

"A higher minimum wage may also motivate workers to work harder, independently of any actions by employers to increase productivity. According to "efficiency wage" theory, wages above the competitive-market rate may elicit greater work effort for several reasons. As Carl Shapiroand Joseph Stiglitz (1984) have argued, higher pay increases the cost to workers of losing their job, potentially inducing greater effort from workers in order to reduce their chances of being fired."

"Particularly when the economy is in a recession or operating below full employment, a minimum-wage increase may also increase demand for firms' goods and services, offsetting the increase in employer costs. Since the minimum wage transfers income from employers (who generally have a high savings rate) to low-wage workers (who generally have a low savings rate), a minimum-wage rise could spur consumer spending. This increase in spending could potentially compensate firms for the direct increase in wage costs."

That's not how inflation works.

most likely people will just be let go and theyll work with less

Then more people will be on government programs, and their lives will be 100% dependent on the government, that is until they run out of money to give...

pretty much. i find it funny how most people seem to think that these big super corrupt uncaring (in there words) corporations will see a new law and just go ok and hang their heads and do as theyre told
