    If they are getting $1.50 a week more than under Obama, then that is a good thing.

    It will make a down payment on a Happy Meal!

    Unlike you, I like American workers making more money cause it's good for the country!

    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?
    Why don't you address the point, a third of American workers earn less than a 1968 minimum wage and in 7 years Republicans have not raised the minimum wage one red cent. And will not before they finish their 8 year run, and if they control the House for the next 50 years, the minimum wage will still be 7.25, and we both know it, but you don't care because you are one of them.

    And raising the minimum wage to 11 bucks would give them a hell of a lot more than a buck fifty a week.

    Very good of you to acknowledge that you were wrong about the "8 years".

    Some people will NEVER admit when they are wrong.

    The point is that the economy is doing great, now that we finally have a pro business president.

    When Bush senior left office the poverty rate was 15%, when Clinton left office it was 11%, when Bush junior left office it was 15%, when Obama left office it was 12%, when Trump leaves office it will be back at 15% or higher, count on it, it is your GOP legacy.

    And if the NYT reports it, even the Trump Haters might possibly believe it.

    Maybe.

    They will try to ignore it as much as possible, of course...
    Dude, get a grip. That rate sounds like inflation.
