Why are people so greedy ? I'm approaching 60 and I made $4.50 an hour working part time jobs after school and during the summer. Over 40 years later some teens and people on minimum wage are not making much more than this. They use the excuse that teens and people won't work hard. I don't blame them for these chicken feed wages. I hire teens in the summer sometimes and have never paid less than $10.00 an hour and I dont expect a lot for that. I've learned that 9 times out of 10 you get what you pay for. I brand new Z28 Camero loaded was less than $13000 and a new truck even cheaper. Younger people can't even dream of purchases like this anymore unless parent pay for it. Stop being greedy companies!!!

It;s a Republican thing. The Camber of Commerce is ran by Republicans and part of their job is to help and keep wages low. Democrats want fair wages and Republicans want starving wages. Remember that when you VOTE! Democrats for higher wages.

Then all the prices go up to pay for those wages and the whole thing becomes pointless.

You know whose wages have increased the most? CEOs and officers of the big companies. Politicians... the people who have the power to dictate their own compensation. And what do they do with their extra money-- the money they don't have to spend to buy a vehicle, or pay rent and utilities or afford food and health care? They bank it offshore so they don't have to pay taxes on it. It is not longer in our economy.

When you raise the wages of the lower and middle class, the teenagers and lower skilled workers, our teachers and law enforcement, our factory workers? They spend nearly every penny of it improving their lives. They put that money right back in the economy.
