Yeah sidney we are just making different points. I don't disagree with anything you said except "raising the minimum wage isn't going to solve anything". It needs to be raised to adjust for inflation and cost of living. This is something that should and has in the past happened regularly. I'm in no way saying it's a magic cure for all that ails us. I am saying it is one step that must be taken to improve our economy overall.
The fact that we are so behind on catching up right now is decreasing the purchasing power of low and middle classes and only serving to line the pockets of the rich who rely on a complacent workforce and middlemen who stifle cries for wage adjustments by referring to those who call for adjustments "pussies" with "tampons" like the stooge whiskeyx likes to do to me. They are unwitting pawns being used to suppress the rights and needs of a workforce who deserve better if we are to call ourselves the greatest country on earth. They are the true "pussies" with "tampons" of our time.
