Congress passed the minimum wage bill. Minimum wage will be going up from $ 7.25 to $9.00 an hour.

Don't spend it before it is received!

And all it's going to do is drive up prices. Just look at each time they've done this in the past.

So reducing it would make prices go down? rolleyes.gif blink.gif laugh.gif

I just had to go to Philadelphia to attend a legal proceeding at the request of my employer.

I had to park in a parking facility in center city Philadelphia.

$34 for the 3 hours my vehicle was at the facility.

More than even the proposed minimum wage for a vehicle to park for 3 hours!

That's why you are not supposed to be an uneducated schlub still working for minimum wage when you are 30. Yeah keep raising it. We've already topped 100 million people of working age who are no longer working. What's another 7 or 8 hundred thousand for the taxpayers to pay for? rolleyes.gif
