    Of course, some of the Trump Haters will still complain that they are not going up fast enough...
    Based on info provided by Trump's WH!

    Currently over a third of American workers earn less than a 1968 minimum wage, thank you GOP.

    Call me anything thing you want, this is America.

    It's just words on a screen.

    It won't affect my paycheck or my love life, so it really won't bother me.

    I am neither Republican nor Democrat, I long ago stopped being associated with either of those corrupt organizations.

    I always support my president, though.

    When the president does good, it's good for the country.

    Some people hate Trump more than they love America so they want things to go bad for the country right now.

    Not me...

    Who is bragging his ass off about a wage increase of 3.2% over a wage increase of 3%? That would be you.

    Do you REALLY think the Republicans have been in charge of the House for 8 years?

    Of course, you thought Hillary was going to "crush his nuts", too.

    Rising wages and bonuses are good for working Americans.

    Surely you agree with that, right?

    Or does your hatred for Trump make you want things to go bad for working people?

    Jan of 2011 until Jan of 2019 will be 8 years. So 7 years to date, but that begs the question does it not? What have they done for the working poor in those 7 years? Does nothing sound about right? Other than try to strip them of healthcare, of course.

    A worker getting a 1.50 a week more is Republican largesse for the working poor, own it Miller.

    "will be 8 years".

    Now you are getting it!

    Make sure and tell HayJenn, because she was confused, too, post #26.

    It will be 8 years in Jan of 2019, but we aren't quite there yet, now are we?
