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.

What moron thinks you can raise a family on 7.85$ ? Last I saw 9 .00$ is a lot better than 7.85$ !Only here would a "person" whine about getting a raise !

ONCE AGAIN Munster displays his grasp of all things economic. Munster just where do you think that raise is coming from?? Do you think that the employer is just going to pay them the extra buck fifteen? what about those who have been there a while and earned more than minimum" do you think they should also receive a raise to maintain the delta with a new hire??? I realize in your little UNION DOGMA world that money just appears like magic but the TRUTH is, we will all pay higher prices including the guy who got the raise. The market will adjust and he will have NO MORE BUYING power than he did before. We will all just pay more.

The president should be fair to all Americans and say what was just send in an early post: "If you would like to raise a family, you should develop a skill set that can earn you more than minimum wage".

let me remind you that the president took time in his SOTU address to talk about min wage going to $9. He also believes that $9 will get you out of poverty. That is what he said, not me. I think he is full of @@@@!

Perhaps you should not be attempting to raise a family on minimum wage. If you would like to raise a family, you should develop a skill set that can earn you more than minimum wage. Then you can think about raising a family.

This is what he said when he announced the $9 an hour: “no one who works full-time should have to live in poverty”. I don’t know for sure but he seems to think $9 per hour is a big deal. It is the president saying this, not me.

Nobody ever EXPECTED anyone to raise a family on minimum wage! That wage was set as a standard wage for entry jobs in the workforce, for workers with NO experience. For part-time workers, like high school kids, or for those just entering the workforce.

That's why they called it MINIMUM WAGE!

Cause $9.00 will put them in the middle class & pay for everything themselves.... right?

They won't qualify for HUD, food assistance, the medical card, WIC or any other governmental assistance.... right?

Course I'm sure the $9.00 Whopper or Big Mac will be fantastic...

Really thought that one out.

You can raise a family on $360 a week? Why not make the min wage the same as a pipefitter, school teacher, Fireman, Police man etc. $9. What a joke. This man talks in billions and billions but want a person to survive on $9? He never had a real job so he does not know the struggle of the middle class.
