It seems the Democratic Party wants to push forward with the idea of the fifteen dollar minimum wage as part of their platform going forward. We already have hundreds of thousands of jobs going to illegal aliens because they can be hired for 1/3rd or less what it would cost to pay and insure an American... and we also have service jobs being replaced with touch screens and automated registers, etc. wouldn't forcing the minimum wage up just make companies replace the American worker with automation or illegals even more? Maybe the problem is lack of healthcare and the new 32 hour FT standard.

I feel the same way, and it boggles the mind why the Dems want to push this, I would love for it to be $15.00, but the loss of jobs would be substantial, maybe that's why they want to push it, it would make things look worse for the Trump Presidency
The dems were pushing this before because they were hoping for the votes of the people that work for minimum wage.
Thanks for the reply... yes IMO this is the typical, good intentioned but seemingly clueless about the consequences of one's actions Dem Party move... like Obamacare, helps some people, but it hurts even more, people who didn't have problems before.
