View Full Version : Speaking of minimum wage . . .

Florida has stepped up to the plate and raised the minimum wage from $7.79 per hr to $7.93 effective January 1st 2014.

The 2% increase is supposed to help folks keep pace with the rate of inflation, allegedly. A whopping 14 cents per hour, $5.06 for those lucky enough to work a full 40 hour week, is the republican answer to our states rampant poverty. Beautiful, eh?

Starvation wages will create jobs!

Grave diggers, and those who pull wagons, chanting "Bring out your dead!"

And more police will have to be hired to cope with those of the poor who are forced into a life of crime.
