$15.00/an hour to work at Mickey D's?
And you wonder why the chamber of commerce is looking forward to immigrant workers flooding the market? It's basic economics. Mickey D can let the $15.00 hour strikers go and hire immigrants who would be perfectly happy with the current minimum wage...probably more than they could ever make in their native lands.
As far as claiming that raising the minimum wage is the right thing to do without qualifications or certification...is not economically sound or claiming that immigrants are taking jobs that Americans will not do is also false. The truth is that many Americans feel that it's beneath them to accept these menial, low-paying jobs, but refuse to improve their earning qualifications for something more profitable...thus, why we seek entrepreneurs as opposed to employees...for you determine your financial goals with the products and services offered.
