It has just started, when the shortages hit it will really go up in price.

The government giving away huge amounts of money causes inflation of the price of everything being bought with the huge amount of money. Money is only worth what you can purchase with it. It's better to make a small amount of money and be able to buy all you need then to make a huge amount of money and still not afford what you need. The democrats excited about the rise in minimum wage can't grasp that. Resources are limited.

Morons support $15 hr minimum wage and can't figure out why a cheese burger is $18

The democrats idea is to print more money. We canít borrow anymore. We are twenty some trillion in debt. Inflation is going to be unbearable. Wait until a can of soup is 20 bucks and a can of beans is 50. Or even if you have a huge amount of money and could pay those prices but there is nothing to buy.
The governments job is not to force employers to pay a certain wage. The governments job is not to stimulate the economy with stolen or printed money. It is to limit its involvement in our lives, get out of the way and let the economy do its job.

You are responsible for your outcome in life. Not the government. Not other people, you.

If you need more income, you need to find a way to make yourself more valuable. This can be thru education and experience or starting your own business. Not by the government forcing employers to pay you more. This will only lead to a lot of layoffs and people not worth 15$ an hour losing their jobs.

Life ainít easy but it is what it is. Trust me I know.

I'm far from rich but if someone is not doing $15 worth of work an hour then they shouldn't be paid $15 an hour.

The more money they give away the less money is worth.

supply chain issues , fuel costs going up significantly. a lot of uncertainty in the economy and taxes.


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

Whatís between 85-115? Whatís below 70? Figure out where 15$ an hr fits into that....most I encounter arnt worth 10$ an hr.
I manage a team comprised of mostly young folks....they all complain about how life sucks cuz they got no money...so I ask ďwhat marketable skills do u have?Ē The answer, a question ďwhat is a marketable skill?Ē My answer to that ďthatís why u work for meĒ
I know your upset about your wages and how much things cost but everyone is the master of their own destiny. Iím sure u must have some skills, why donít u start a side gig?

10.50?? Thatís ridiculous by today societal standards and economies. I would assume she had to be educated and trained as well as possessing an ability to tolerate the job. 10.50?? How much is a gallon of milk there?

Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

Higher energy cost. Higher food costs. Hurt the poorest the most. All socialist policies. Their answer is to raise taxes. And redistribute the wealth. The higher the population they can get dependent on the government the more control they have. Democrats like big powerful government. Conservatives believe in freedom of the individual. That's how this country got to be the best and most powerful Nation the world has ever seen.
