Than why do corporations pay more than the minimum wage in certain locals? And once again, I have to point out that if the American Consumer wasn't so damn cheap, stores wouldn't have to keep prices down (then we would all be complaining how everyone needs more money).

Noted & posted. This is just the tip of the coming trend. Get ready for slavery.

Too much greed by a few members of our society creates more poverty for the majority.

I believe we have a government run by corporations. I believe this condition exist because too many of our elected officials are indebted to corporations. I believe corporations have been given even more control by
SCOTUS and their unpopular decision concerning corporate donations to political campaigns.

Nothing like a free market economy, with all the corporate influence in what should be the people's government. How are they free-market if they're influencing policy? Isn't the market supposed to determine wages in a free-enterprise world, not bribes to government representatives? Thanks.

That's what happens when we elect Baggers that don't know how to read.

TomCat S., shouldn't that be "write"? Writing and reading are distinctly different activities. And wouldn't these corporate lobbyist be accurately described as experts?

What really amazes me is the ignorance of some "citizens." How can people who rely on minimum wage or low wages continue to support the Party of Red? The Party of Red is a grand champion of the 1% and business. Why is it that some continue their votes of support for Red when it is a vote against their own special interests? Amazing and stupid. You will continue to be the economic slaves of business and the 1%. They have you right where they want you: in a continued state of ignorance. Read about the real issues, stay the hell off Fox News and VOTE. Talk to people - get the scoop, make you mind up and do the right thing.
