    I am one of the people getting that extra 15 cents an hour in Oregon. It's much better than a stick in the eye.

    And what's the commentors in this diary claiming a $15/hr minimum wage will destroy our economy?

    I worked at McDs.  It was darned hard and a crime they only paid min. wages.

    •  Remember what Chris Rock said... (0+ / 0-)

      He was doing his standup act and mentioned that employers are required to pay minimum wage...because they can't/shouldn't legally pay you less. The moral of the story...McD's and others would use slave labor if they could get away with it.
