Who got the better deal?
Raising the mini-wage was contested by Republican's because it would create an undo burden on small businesses and raise prices of consumer goods as well as in the food industry, which in turn would cause unemployment to increase.
The new Democrat majority promised a mini-wage increase as part of their campaign to take control over congress.
With an 87-10 vote in the Democrat-led senate, $8.3 Billion in tax breaks was won by the Republican's while granting the mini-wage hike over two years to $7.25 per hour from $5.15 per hour to offset the costs to small businesses.
But some companies are already laying off workers because the tax cuts will come too-little too-late to offset the immediate wage hike.
So who won and who lost?
What good can come of a mini-wage hike if employers have to pay for the same work that is being done now below this increase? As wages increase due to government regulation instead of market influence, prices across the board must also rise to offset it, thus making it a deceptive wash for lower paid workers who lose even more, without realizing it. Thus are the ways of deceitful democrats.
Most people making minimum wage are very young, just entering into the work force and a small percentage at that. Democrats are attempting to con these youngsters for their votes in the future, preying on their inexperience and naivety like vultures. All this while promoting abortion, homosexuality and group consensus, causes democrats to lie constantly in a desperate attempt to keep their party competitive, using the liberal media to tear down traditional conservative moral values that have made America the best hope for the world.
Is it any wonder why terrorism increases with liberalization (not freedom) of society?
