Minimum Wage Bill defeated by Republican majority in Senate. This quote is priceless: "Wages do not cause sales. Sales are needed to provide wages. Wages do not cause revenue. Revenue drives wages," said Sen. Mike Enzi, R-Wyo.
If wages don't cause sales, what do the idiots think the middle & working classes will use to buy the tennis shoes and new cars and power tools that drive this economy? Oh yeah... credit cards. I forget. And I forget, too that *every* employer is just dying to raise the wages of their employees if they just made a few more million in sales. That's what shareholders demand as a return on their investment... higher wages for the working stiffs.
