    You and your fear of losing all the part time seasonal fruit picking and lawn care jobs....

    They're maybe wanting to but they're not, they're paying the minimum wage or more and it ain't working. And it'll never work.

    What does one thing have to do with the other.

    The OP claims the number of people making minimum wage is small. His source says people who make EXACTLY the minimum wage...$7.25 an hour is a small number of Americans.

    Anyone with half a brain knows there are tons of people making within 50 cents of the mw. The OP and others pushing this moronic meme can not admit there are a whole more Americans on the cusp.

    Your push is just another attempt not to admit.

    Why are low wage legal workers such a threat to you and the OP?
    The OP is addressing minimum wage but as always you have to take things out of context

    Also, 4.3% of WORKERS (your 1% of everyone in America is misleading) are at or below minimum wage. Here's the kicker: about 30% of workers in this country are CLOSE to min. wage.

    Explain how the government can say opposite figures. I stand by my OP. You have proven nothing of substance. My OP is still fact
