On the bright side the demand will be up for those willing to work under the table ---- win-win. Now you understand the open southern border. grin

"I noticed yesterday that more folks use the self-checkout than what use the live checkers. Personally I prefer the self-checkout as well."




I've never have a self-checkout be rude or have a bad attitude and look like it needed to wash it's hair. That's the part that I enjoy.

This is a "make you feel good, vote for me" strategy of the left, but this arbitrary raise in the minimum wage will be a disaster. Jobs will be lost and costs will be passed on to the consumer, thus nullifying this increase. And many retirees, while already on a fixed income, will have to absorb these increases with no increases to their retirement income.
biden/left are also doing away with jobs and fuel costs are increasing. Everything being moved by some kind of fuel, these costs will be passed on to the consumer putting us further and further behind the eight ball.

God please... bless America!

I agree, I too feel like increases will be passed on and they will most definitely affect retirees.

I find it odd that there is so much talk about the $15 minimum wage, but where is the talk about Social Security benefits being increased?

The Government will benefit from increased SS and tax revenue paid for by the businesses.

The left has been very vocal about their position that there are too many old people.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???

The issue needs to be left up to the States.
The cost of living is so different in one place versus another, it just doesn't make sense having a National minimum wage.

Iíve seen the argument that increased wages will give people more ďfun moneyĒ to spend. Itís not fun money when basic items to survive raise right along with the wage.

Our local Walmart just released a statement they plan to be self checkout only in the very near future. I forget the exact date. The big corporations are already planning for the fall out.

I donít shop at Walmart unless I have no other option in a pinch. I think thatís been three times in the last year. I donít eat McDonaldís mainly because itíll kill you. Lol.

Heard these stats on radio:

The lowest wages are in the SE
In three states, 50% of wage earners are paid less than $16.50/hr.
In 16:states, 50% of earners make less than $18/hr.

I donít know what the poverty line is or the national average. Other than farm work at .50 per hour, my first job was at $1.65/hr. I am 74.

There's the stimulus employers need to increase wages. That's all that's needed.

Us poverty line is just under 13k a year for a single person household. 1.90 a day is the world poverty line

Walmart has set the standard for marketing. Nobody has been more successful except maybe Amazon. They have their haters but it's still hard to find a parking spot at Walmart.
I like McDs but it is also a great laxative.

Ya, no kiddin'. I guess I've been in poverty all my life. Never made more than $15/hr ever.
Money can't buy happiness, but it makes misery more enjoyable.

They have been working at that for a while......covid restrictions imposed by states have done plenty of that.

Coonman, if the grocery store has to pay their workers $15 an hour instead of the $12 they used to, they will have to raise their prices to cover that. You will see all prices rise more. It's a circle, a vicious circle.

I do not make big money or have a huge savings account. I've developed a skill set that pays decent.

they need to keep buying votes somehow....it is a disgrace. Free market should determine prices/wages.

That didnt happen when Henry Ford raised the wages of all his assembly line workers so they could afford to buy one of his cars.
In fact quite the opposite.
In fact it created so much demand that he sold more at cheaper prices and increased his own profits in the long term.
