Re: “Fighting For a Higher Minimum Wage in Idaho

Why not a $40 minimum wage?

We all know Walmart and McDonalds would survive with a higher minimum wage. But what about the local bookstore or music store, struggling to make a profit? How do they increase their wages to low skilled workers when they're struggling to make a profit? This can break a business and put them under. Then when the local businesses go under, everybody works for big box stores and national franchises. Is that what y'all want?

The rising cost of living problem comes from inflation and easy money, a problem most of you do not address.

If these Walmart or McDonalds workers aren't making enough, why don't they find a new job? Because they're low skilled workers who aren't worth enough to the business. They are expendable. A $10/hr minimum wage worker at's called a touch screen ordering interface or automated machinery.

These legitimate points above got me promptly banned from the Raise the Minimum Wage in Idaho facebook group, as well as my comments deleted. Apparently this is another "AGREE WITH US OR ELSE" group. No discussion.

You mean McDonalds workers want to give themselves more money? Put their pay on par with construction workers and those who bust their asses? No way! If you can't get a better job, maybe your problem is you.
