    But, you are not smart enough to know that you are going to vote for one no matter what Party you vote for:

    http://www.latinpost.com/articles/7...nimum-wage-gop-candidate-opposes-increase.htm

    "Donald Trump would not support an increase in the U.S. minimum wage if he were to move into the White House in 2017, the Republican presidential frontrunner told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Thursday.

    "It's such a nasty question because the answer has to be nasty," the candidate noted, according to Mediaite. "We can't have a situation where our labor is so much more expensive than other countries that we can no longer compete."

    Trump, whose net worth is estimated at $4 billion, argued that his promise to "make America great again" would eventually render the debate about the minimum wage superfluous."

    Now the liar says:

    http://www.businessinsider.com/donald-trump-federal-minimum-wage-2016-7

    "Reversing a position that he took just two months ago, Donald Trump told Fox News on Tuesday that he would like to see the federal minimum wage raised to $10 per hour.

    Trump slammed former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders for saying, in his Monday speech at the Democratic National Convention, that Trump doesn't support raising the federal minimum wage."

    Well I would stick to the simple fact that he was right, we don't need wages to really increase like that. It doesn't matter if we increase it to $50 dollars an hour, if the value of the dollar continues to decrease, $50 dollars an hour will not provide a livable wage because we won't be able to buy as much as we could with it like we can now.

    We need to increase the value of the dollar so that the current wages we have now can buy us more. If the dollar had more value, people who make $7 dollars an hour could buy enough good and services at the same level as someone who was making $14 dollar an hour only because we can buy more with our money.

    We don't want an incompetent slave to the establishment. Tried that for 8 years and all we got was double the debt and foreign policy that had made the world far worse than it was.

    LOL, as if Trump will not cave in to the "establishment". As to the "foreign policy", it is true that Obama has made mistakes. However, we are still paying for the Bush fiasco not only militarly, but economically. And your Repugnants plan of lack of cooperation to gain more control is coming to light.

    As to the debt, the day Ronald Reagan was sworn in the national debt was 934 billion. The day he left office the debt was 2. 697 trillion. Almost TRIPLE. Bush 41 added over 80% and Bush 43 added 110%.

    Of course, if it had been McCain, or Romney, it would have been much worse.

    Isn't this telling people what they wish to hear? Federal laws versus state laws on the issue of wages is a tough one as states all vary with living costs and taxes. Then there are always loopholes employers use to get around it in any case. No one will report them because they don't wish to lose their jobs, so how effective would that law be?

    In the UK we have a minimum wage, but employers still exploit that and it is up to the employee to report companies that do this, but few do.
