    I agree with the movement. Higher pay? Yes. $15 per hour. Ummm. No. I have a degree at my pay is equivalent to $18 an hour. Why should someone earn $15 to flip a burger? I could see $10-12, but they're pushing a little far with $15. That rate should be reserved for beginning managers.

    They're joking with $15/hr, right? I mean, the real tragedy here is that they can all be replaced with iPads in the next three years. IPads don't strike.

    As wages fall below the level necessary to raise a family, any reason for social cooperation vanishes.

    The little guy with less pay cannot afford to enjoy life like those who make 50k a year. And most likely the little guy is doing all the work but those at the higher end get more money.

    New Soldiers in the Military do not make $15 an hour. Why should someone in an entry level job in society make more money an hour, than someone who is willing to give their life for their country?

    So I own a lawn service and I am one of the few who does not hire illegals. My average fee per customer is $80.00 per month. Ask folks if they would like to increase that to $140.00 per month. What liberals will never understand is someone has to pay.
