Don’t know if there is a correlation to this or not, but since the federal minimum wage went up this past week, it has been reported the 51,000 people lost there jobs and many more have had their hours curtailed.  While I certenately feel for those that are now seeking employment elsewhere, I have to wonder how many of them were making minimum wage and the company they were working for decided that they couldn’t afford to pay them any longer?

    Good question Sarge. I have believed for years that labor is a commodity..just as is crude oil and soy beans. Minimum wage laws establish an artificial cost of labor…and when that happens labor is sure to suffer..and I figure that is what is happening now
