Who are the largest groups of unemployed? Minorities and those under 25. If the minimum wage is increased who will be the hardest hurt? If you don't get it you are dumber than I thought.

I applaud McKinley and Capito for voting against this issue! They need to look at the impact on the small businesses because it could easily shut them down. If people are working in a small business setting and making minimum wage, if that business has to shut down because of the increased wages, taxes, etc. then those employees are making $0! Can you not see what Obama is doing to our country?? He wants to spend, spend, spend, without bringing in enough revenue to pay for that spending so he has to borrow from other countries until we're totally indebted to them. The increased wage is the same money to pay for increased wages and taxes so the business shuts down and the employees and employers go from a small income to none at all. What sense does that make??

Artifactman, do you really expect a Right Wing / Tea Bagging Republican to do anything beneficial for the working class of this country. Their allegiance & loyalty is with big business. In total opposition to the UNEDUCATED, ILLITERATE WORKING CLASS, that continue to return them to office.... You don't believe this??? Just ask the Coal Miners that are NOW fighting for their Pensions and Medical Benefits with McKinley's Buddies in BIG COAL... These same dumb*** coal miners voted to return McKinley to office...

Shame on you McKinley and Capito for not voting on this issue. These are the people that serve you everyday in society. People that work hard in their lives should be rewarded for it. Get Real! They certainly deserve better than this...
