I see you are choosing to make things up, who is joyous over soldiers getting a 1% raise? Obviously you think they should get a much larger chunk of American tax dollars.

Just making it harder and harder for hi skool kids or old folks who want to supplement their income with a part time job to find one and the folks who got that huge bump in pay will start beeching because they will have work even harder to make up the difference of having less employees to help them out. Hey good for them. lol

Inflation is in fact flat. It has been hovering between 1-2.5% for a while.

Keep watching. Add in to that this Ocare mess, you just keep watching.

I'm sure, however, that when you do see it, you'll just keep on blaming the elite rich 1%ers, because it's easier to blame someone else than yourself for voting unwisely.

Only if the labor participation rate stayed the same.

I am watching, you guys say this every time minimum wage goes up and nothing happens. So when is this gonna actually happen? Also, what does people having better access have to do with minimum wage?

Yes, that was an exaggeration, I figured that would be obvious.

The labor pool isn't shrinking because of minimum wage increases.

You were provided facts by me.

Walmart decrease in employees per store and retail store decrease in employee per store over time.
But you are waiting for some MSM outlet to talk about "mass layoffs" which aren't going t happen.

So stick your head back in the sand and think nothing of this.

Speaking of being smug, your sand comment is unnecessary.

You are correct, Walmart has decreased its employee size, the issue with trying to connect it to minimum wage seeing they are the Welfare Queen of minimum wage jobs, the federal minimum wage hasn't been raised since 2009, and the majority of their stores are located in states that function at a federal minimum wage level.

**The median annual salary for a pharmacist was $116,670, or $56.09 per hour, in 2012. The best-paid 10 percent made $145,910 in 2012, while the lowest-paid made $89,280.**

I'm sure the potential of an increase in minimum wage is quite the issue there.
