The CEO of Exxon Mobile has very few minimum wage earners on his payroll.

You do understand that the immigrants, both legal and illegal, who come to America without an education, are typically the ones who need these entry level jobs to get started? Or do you consider, out of sight, picking your vegetables to be a good enough opportunity for them?

BTW, Farm workers are not protected by minimum wage laws.
not an attack ye old paranoid person you

you can't relate that when the businesses did well the country's citizenry did too, from the forties till around 1985.
a few booms in the 90s, economy did not die under bush elder cause he raised taxes
then gw lowered em again and all this time save clinton and obama minimum wage did not increase and unions were torn apart.
now it doesn't matter that corporations saw their best two years last year and year before. . we are still talking about giving people a minimum amount of money to step up the ladder with their efforts. hell we even screwed college up for them. to where a lot of them couldn't even afford a doctor till obamacare and that had to be a corporate payoff too.

That's about the truest statement I've ever seen you make.

You do realize that applies to ALL taxes, right? Reasons why inflation is not a good thing... it jacks the prices of goods, and you get to pay more in sales taxes. The only winner is the taxing authority, always is, always will be.

And, you are still talking about creating inflation on purpose, raising revenues for the government, and blaming then big corporations for the burden such policies actually put on small businesses and entry level workers.

An artificial minimum wage hurts, and adds costs, to everyone but big corporations and the government. The proof is right there in your own words.

A lot of places just multi-task their employees. I can't see why a restaurant would have someone who is just a dedicated busboy unless they are so busy that they can't spare any of the waitresses/waiters to removed used dishes and clean those tables. I know at Golden Corral and a bunch of other restaurants I been to the waiters/waitresses removed those dirty dishes and clean the tables.

The Busboy job is different in different places. Generally they back up the waitress or waiter in clean up and set up as well as sometimes serving coffee or bringing an extra plate or entree'.

It is a good position for learning the waiter's job and dealing with people in the service industry. Most waiters and waitresses began as bus boy/girls. Given the expansion of restaurant eating in the American life style, it is a growing industry with lots of room for new employment. Taking this lowest rung out of the system is going to improve neither the service or the bottom line.

This is just one more example of people who never had to start at the bottom having no appreciation, much less understanding, of how their ignorance negatively impacts the people they are supposed to serve.

I guarantee MS. Pelosi, Barack Obama, Hilary Clinton or Chuck, Schumer never bussed tables. Neither did Trump but somehow he does seem to understand the little people. Perhaps his father's work ethic and his mother's coaching instilled an appreciation for those who work for a living.
