Let's see, I run a small business, and have to turn $120,000 a year, or $10,000 a month to survive, if the community spends that with me, where do they get the money to spend, if their minimum wage, is gone with rent, and groceries are from the food bank...the basis of our capitalistic workings is simple...when low income people have money, they will spend it, even when it means going without come things because they don't have expendable income. It strikes me it is the store owners and business community are cutting their own throats to a point, to hold to starvation, minimum income ....

Never ceases to amaze me that the GOP's biggest voter block are working class. Talk about a wildly successful disinformation campaign! They have fooled people by distractions of red-herring fear-based social issues. (sigh)


I say it's time for torches and broom sticks


And a good deal of these minimum wage workers will be people of color, and all the damn so called lawmakers are white. How the fuck can the sleep at night.


That should include their pay !

Good luck getting quality people to come work in Missouri.

Powers that Be been fighting $10 min wage ever since it passed here last fall. I think if you can't afford meal prices that factor in a decent living wage for restaurant workers you should just eat at home.


VOTE PAPER BALLOT Positive you have the chance this November to throw them out of owners, realize, they will have less income to spend with your businesses...

If only there were some way to vote them out of office...

Gee, I wonder how we can do that ? Let's see.....OH I KNOW...VOTE THEM OUT OF OFFICE...can't imagine no one there thought of that...


Immediately require that their salaries be decreased by the same percentage. They should also have the same benefits, which I think would mean they would have none. What is good for you is good for them.


All those men and one woman, all disgusting creatures which I bet call themselves Christians.
