Who asked you guys?

[Sarcasm ahead]

This is interesting: the Canadian Federation of Independent Businesses is hoping the Province does not increase the minimum wage.

Don't small business listen to the experts who have been continually pointing out that an economic downturn is the worst time to have low wages? And since cutting wages is economically devastating, it stands to reason that increasing wages would increase consumer spending. Because that's all there is to the economy: recycling money, and the more you get the more you spend.

That is why I propose the minimum wage be raised to $30/hour--so Working Families, Hardworking Canadians, and The Working Poor can better whether the economic storm.

Sometimes I really wish those slaves in independent businesses would stop whining, and let the experts do what's best for the economy.

And as you raise the Min wage to $30 an hour , watch the prices of everything rise as well.

The problem isn't wages , it's spending and how people are putting everything on credit. People need to stop spending and start saving again.

The reality is most small business people pay over the min wage. However, by raising the minimum wage you are alos putting pressure on other wages to go up on small business owners. For example, if I'm earning $10.00 /hr and the min wage is increased, then I want a raise and the person earning $15.00 wants one and the person earning $20.00 wants one and on it goes. Of course one solution to this is that as a business owners we just raise all the prices.... check
