President Obama calls for the minimum wage to be set at $9 dollars an hour. What moron beside this president thinks you can raise a family on $9 an hour?

Where are the unions on this? $9 an hour? What a joke.

if that was your original intent, why would you not have deducted the taxes prior to your claim? in addition, it is rare that an employer would honor the no deduction request by any employee. now if you were an independent contractor then the employer would not deduct your required taxes. however, you would not be an employee and it would not matter whether you were part-time or full-time. bottom line is that although you earn more money, you do not neccessarily keep all of it as you implied. that was what you originally implied wasn't it or maybe in your pocket has another meaning. either way i am just messing with you. it is not all that important. enjoy your day.

does all of it end up in your pocket like you first claimed? i mean all of it...if not then you neglected to reveal the truth of what will end up in your pocket. your math was not complete from employer to pocket. you were wrong!

with or without intent, you gave false information. one thing is true. employers would see a loss of the whole $46.00 but the employee would not see the "in the pocket benefit" of the whole $46.00. for any sticklers out there, yes the employer and employee through filing of annual income taxes may get a refund or tax credit to recoup some of the money but in most instances not the full amount.

is a tax increase a cut in wages? tell obama you did not appreciate his recent tax increase resulting in a cut in wages. your fuzzy math unfortunately leads to the term dumb-masses in the dissemination of false information.

munster, you may gross an additional $46.00 per 40 hour pay period, but that amount will not end up in your pocket as you put it. you neglected to consider the deductions that are applied to your gross income. while this is a minor point, it does indicate that the initial joy of any increase in salary is quickly soured by the actual "in-pocket" amount. it may be beneficial to either look at a friends paystub or actually cut a payroll check these days for this to become painfully true.

Munster: maybe my point is getting lost. You say $7.85 is something to be grateful for. You sound like a minimum wage person should come over to your house and kiss your ring. Dem and libs brag about raising the min wage. You think going to $9 an hour should make me c r a p my pants. Miller and Harkin, Democrats, will introduce a bill that would raise the minimum wage by 39%. The math shows that is better than your $9. per hour . $15 Would even better than Harkin's proposal. When you get in the business of setting wages you better make that level something you can live on or stay the heck out of the business of setting wages.

A 39% raise in the minumum raise is better than your $7.85

You can't raise a family on $9 an hour. The president's proposal is gutless and HEARTLESS.

Senators Miller and Harkin, Democrats, will introduce a bill that would raise the minimum wage by 39%, not the gutless increase that Obama proposed during a SOTU speech.

Why didn't you just title this topic "stiffminded Insults Anyone Who Disagrees With Him and then pollutes on and on ? It would at least be "truth in advertising."

And with all the B.S. that surrounds rand and her followers like Lyin Ryan, she used S.S.I, and Ryan has benefited most of his life from Social Security Insurance. Uber acheivers are all around, some were created on the 8th day, some learn how to tie their shoes when they are 25 years old, some see the joy on a childs face when they get the answer to a math equation. And some try to force their failed political beliefs on others, and one was killed Friday morning in Taylor County WV. May you rest in peace and the lamb lay at your feet. You will be missed Mr. Brian Thomas Hopkins.

Ayn Rand`s philosophy works better under tyrannical fed plutocracy, than a small d democracy( elected representative republic), yea like Billyboy reps the masses of S.E. Ohio.

Henry Ford inflated his workers wages past their so called skill level, so he could sell cars, thats not going to happen in Ayn Rands world.

Edison had many creative minds under contract and held patent rights of such people as Nikola Tesla, we still use his inventions.

oneill: no. I am speaking from personal experience. My father moved our family to find work. Your comment about “them thar folks who live in trailers in W.Va. or S.E” is insulting and shameful. People who live like you describe should not be insulted. But I should not feel sorry for them either if that is how they choose to live. How typical lib.

But I had an asset, what is the answer for those who have nothing to sell, or any type of equity. also what would be a skill in one part of this nation, may not be a skill in another part. Such is life. To me a consumer and service economy has proven to be the downgrading of the American Dream.

Be Right: Dont feel sorry for those that wont help themselves. But how about those that get up in rural Morgan and drive two hours to Columbus, work 8 to 10 hours and drive back, most of these people would NEVER live or move close to Columbus. If they are making 15-20 bucks and hour, figure in the cost of gas, wear and tear on vehicles and themselves, not to mention strain on trying to hold family together. I mean price of gas went up .80 cents a gallon for what? Why I even did as you suggest sold my piece of Creation moved to better pay, and a higher cost of living.
