Lisa Crownover Whatley: When employees don't make a living wage and CEOs make millions, there is the problem.
User from MD: Horse crap. Lousy food, high prices and lousy service probably did it
User from FL: Slavery was abolished a long time ago. If you can’t afford to pay your hardworking employees a living wage, you don’t deserve to be in business.
User from PA: Why is the government dictating what employees get paid? You took the job at a salary. None of the governments business. You want socialism move to Venezuela.
Amanda Michelle: ya when you expand to that level you have to consider how many people you will need to hire. high minimum wage or not laborers are expensive and keeping your business small means less employees and more money in your pockets. As far as the government dictating pay...workers rights were created for a reason....go back in history and look at what the industrial revolution was all about and why the labor unions were created in the first place. we as workers need someone to advocate. doctors are getting 250,000 dollar a year salaries because people fought for a right to a liveable wage. it has nothing to do with socialism. how spoiled an entitled are you to believe people arent entitled to fair pay for the work they do.
