That's OK. We will put them to work building fishing boats, tractors, and reasonable accomodations to replace hovels. The pool of money is the pool of money. Split it differently and it will be spent differently....but it will still be spent.

/m69467 $7.25/hr. is a ridiculously low wage for anyone in America. Especially when you consider that low-wage earners typically are expected to "Hop To" on the job. On their feet all day, must ask permission to use the bathroom, etc. and frequently denied breaks. $7.25 per hour today is truly the Equivalent of my 1st job in 1966 at a grocery store...$1.25 per hour it was then, and no - no one could live on $1.25 per hour, not even back then. After tax, SSDI etc. I only took home about $34.50 a week. But I could live better back then on $34.50/wk., than I could today on $7.25/hr. I might have been able to live in a Boarding House for $17.00 per week. Today it's hard to find ANY apartment for less than $900.00 a month. To sum up, in 1966 I would have had HALF my paycheck to live on, after paying Rent. Today it takes 100% of someone's Take-Home (at $7.25/hr), to pay the rent.

/m69469 Yeppers, if Bernie gets his way yacht builders, jet builders, mansion builders, and all the associated jobs that go with them will be out of work.

The GOP could really make Bernie look bad by voting to raise the minimum wage to $15. But I bet that Grover Norquist would take them out if his will.

82%, it seems as if Bernie had to be exposed - otherwise he wouldn't have upped his staff's wages. His staffed ought to be disgusted.

Pardon me sir but you have obviously mistaken me for someone who gives a shit what you have to say. What we have here is a failure to communicate so let be be crystal clear with you. I do not give the slightest shit if Cadet Bonespurs had his feelings hurt by the truths told by McCain or Kahn. I care even less that you got yours hurt Tater. 4F Trump should be ashamed of every word he said against either. Your failure to understand that takes away any claim to honor you ever earned in spite of the words on your discharge papers.

/m69474
There is no comparison in either the numbers, the conditions under which these people are being detained, or the way they are being villified between Trump and Obama. You lose again.

/m69473
I spoke of two Silver Star winners that I had the privilege of counting among my friends one of whom died in combat. They were continually attacked by you good veterans. First as non existent, then after I posted links to their commendations as gay men in my shed by you REMF trash assed bitches. I have no respect for your service as a result and would happily put a boot in your potato peeling ass given the sliggtest opportunity for medicinal purposes.

It was good of you however Sybil/Kono to provide proof that your Bawshit persona and muffdiverdan persona are both the same trash.

/m69459 I told you before the issue with McCain is not that he is a Veteran but that after he lost the 2004 election he became a rino.

There was one loon gold star member loon that verbally attacked Trump and Trump defending himself blasted him with both barrels. He deserved it.
What else you got douche?

instead of "sir/madam", consider "traveller"

- gender neutral
- fun to say
- acknowledges the endless journey of the soul
- makes you feel like a medieval tavernkeep
- you absolutely can't risk misgendering a wandering swordmaster

If it was about people coming here illegally, why are they only going after the brown skinned people? There are thousands of WHITE illegal immigrants. Why aren't they separating them? Why are we only seeing brown skinned children, men & women in cages? Why not THEM?

Exactly. How cruel of the Democrats to pass a minimum wage bill for low-paid workers.

Walmart will likely go out of bidness as the Waltons give up caviar breakfasts now. The Koch brothers may be required to forgo a few of their superyacht upgrades and, God forbid, a Lear or three. All so some friggin peasant can feed his kids.
Will the suffering never end??

Yes, Uncle Bernie has started to deal with that issue now. He has cut staff and hours for his campaign staff.

So the Federal minimum wage has been at $7.25 an hour for at least 10 years until the Dems (House) raised it to $15 by 2025? That is 6 years away, and businesses crying about it have that much time to figure out their strategy. Good for the Dems, bad showing for the GOP. ***Even though the Senate won't pass it and small businesses would probably let some folks go if passed, the GOP still stinks to a lot of the low wage earners.
