Target and K-Mart and the others will still be there to compete with WalMart. They are not mom and pop shops.

Yeah, the costs vary greatly from high to extremely high. The HC expenditure per capita is 11k per year. So how exactly the $7 per hour will pay for that?

Thatís a question for the parents.

Why should anybody else be forced to pay for their healthcare expenses?

The only thing K-Mart is competing with is bankruptcy.

What now?

I'm (the taxpayer) forced to pay right now. The employer should be paying instead. Questions?

And if you are implying that only school age kids work these jobs, there should be a separate minimum for that.

The increase, which would boost pay for some 30 million low-wage workers, is intended as one answer to income inequality. A longshot project of liberal advocates just a few years ago, the $15 minimum is standard practice at some leading U.S. corporations. But passage was assured only after centrist Democrats, reluctant to embrace the party's left flank, won adjustments, including a slower six-year phase-in of the wage. It was just the latest reminder of the sway moderates hold over the party's policy decisions.

Even though the bill's chances in the Republican-controlled Senate are slim, and President Donald Trump is unlikely to sign it into law, the outcome is important because it puts $15 into the campaigns as the new benchmark for debate.

Be interesting to see how this one plays out for companies like Walmart, etc. Iím sure they will be backing Trump.
Then again Trump might be for it Iíd be surprised if he wasnít after all if he did run on the idea of helping the American workers make more money.
last time the dims raised the min wage (07) it was the final nail for the economy

The nail was the idiotic deregulation.

That’s it, your witty comeback has convinced me, despite any other argument, that corporate welfare exists. You win.
