Speaking of minimum wage, one of my golfing buddies put this up on his facebook page. I had not looked at this issue from his standpoint before, but he is right on. Low wages constitute another form of welfare to big business that results in the taxpayer taking up the slack.
"It's hard to believe that many employers are making the government support their employees by paying them so little they qualify for food stamps (SNAP) or other programs. Now they're cutting back 401(k) contributions so that the government will have to pick the costs of supporting them in their retirement too. At what point does someone say "STOP"?"
