#1 You know that if you lock down the border and ship home much of the unskilled illegal 'imported' labor, the wages of the entry/low skill Americans would rise naturally. Of course, where's the graft and patronage in that approach?

#2 Might as well make it a $1,000/h. Everything will cost more to cover the increased salary so go for the fucking sky dudes. The net result will be the same. $1.29 "dollar" burger will cost $2 at $10.10. $100 at a grand an hour. It is just a simple math equation to see how much things will cost.

#3 The result will be fewer jobs, just as immediately came to pass after FDR signed the first minimum wage into law.

#5 No problem g(r)om. Following Champ's fake press conference yesterday, we now realize the sequester is to blame for the economic downturn which began last November 5th.

#6 I call my plan "50-50" (trademark applied for), that is, the 50% that don't pay income tax now get $50/hour. See it's a win-win situation. They get their money that they deserve and money flows from the unicorn's butt into the taxman's hands.
