Sorry, but I think its funny that this made news, and even more comical that it’s seen as a big deal. Let’s cut the crap and get real here, nothing short of setting the minimum wage at 10.00 will really help workers and their families. I know the news and employers like to pain the false image that people can survive off 7-8 an hour, but in the REAL world you would need a 2nd job just to make ends meet. And the argument that companies couldn’t afford it is beyond BS, because we all know darn well that its not a matter of if they can afford it, but how much it would take out of the pockets of the rich owners.
