Min wage raise has no effect on businesses

Contrary to what Republicans say, people are hired by businesses because they are needed, and let go when they are no longer needed, and once the worker learns all the factors and features of his job, laying him off because the business is forced to raise the minimum wages to $10.10 makes no sense because his job is still needed.

“Government and co-operation are in all things the laws of life. Anarchy and competition, the laws of death.” John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

Guess you have never been laid off, or ever had a job.

You are right. To think the cost will not come down to the consumer is fantasy.

Obama’s new overtime decree



Here comes a more regimented, polarized, lawsuit-ridden workplace with less upward mobility — at least if the President gets his way. I deplore some of the likely effects, unintended or otherwise, in a new Cato post: “Increasingly, Obama’s binge of executive orders and unilateral decrees to bypass Congress is coming to resemble a toddler’s destructive tantrum.

Only government workers have permanent jobs. Other workers are lucky to have six months of work and are laid off when they are no longer needed many times over the years, myself included.

@Rickoshay75,
I'm inclined to agree, Rick. At whatever wage prevails, I would be surprised if many businesses hired more people than they needed. In any event, social security is indexed to inflation; why not wages.

I don't think I eat those fancy, high end pizzas you do. My pizzas cost about $10 each, of which around $1.50 is direct labor of the minimum wage variety. (It's probably less, but let's just keep it there.) If the minimum wage increases 33%, my pizza goes up by $0.50 to $10.50.

The effect of the present minimum wage is poor service. Because the present minimum wage is not livable, minimum wage employees see no reason to provide service.

If you want a good example compare Micky Dees to Five Guys Burgers. Mickey Dee's pays minimum and the service generally sucks. Five Guys pays$10 per hour and the service is wonderful.

The same can be said when you compare Wal-Mart to Target.

The nonlivable minimum wage has consequence. Minimum wage employees pretend to work. It becomes their best interest to do the minimum work possible.

So a point can be argued the raising minimum wage to something livable would lover production costs by improved service and efficiency.
