  •  Well I suspect we could change that (0+ / 0-)

    it seems that people are starting to fear the unwashed masses. We now have several populist movements taking place in the United States.

    If you do not believe me have a gander at the change in same sex marriage laws, medical and recreational marijuana laws, and yes a small beginning to minimum wage laws.

    I don't think most people realize that most jobs are tied to minimum wage of their state. For instance my state minamum is $9.20 my former multinational corp. paid my state minamum wage plus $5.00 per hour and .25 more for each year worked. When minimum wage was raised and tied to the cost of living my raise the first year after was $1.10 (raise in min. plus .25) the next year was .75 (cost of living plus .25) made a difference in my $15.00 and hour life over a short time.
