I was listening to Warren Buffet on NPR this morning and he chimed in on his opinion on the topic. Buffett: "That’s the toughest question you’ve asked me because I’ve thought about it for 50 years, and I don’t know the answer on it."

He also mentions, "The ratio of CEO-to-worker pay in the United States has climbed rapidly over the last 30 years. In 2012, S&P 500 companies on average paid their CEOs 354 times as much as they paid their workers."

One economist said (not Buffet) "that if minimum wage kept up with CEOs that it would be $100.00/hr." I don't know if that's true.

In the interview he does suggest that minimum wage is more of a local issue than federal because of "unique local conditions."

I'm sure the conservative radio "blow holes" are selling a lot of advertising to make their listeners think this is a slam dunk "No", but that's just not the case.

Couldn't agree more and I think the real world evidence on what's happening on the ground in SF and Santa Fe proves that point. $15 an hour minimum wage in some small town in BF Alabama would sink the place.

Yeah that's funny as hell . There has been a solid block of people who share similar thoughts debating against me alone for years on here. Now someone educated and reasonable shows up with similar thoughts to mine and he/we get mocked because of it. Typical

A friend of Patrick's is stationed in Minot, ND - they pay the fast food workers there $15 per hour because they cannot get anyone to work fast food. It is an oil drilling and military town. They didn't mandate a change in the minimum wage, it is just what they have to pay to get workers.

Plenty of guys doing trade jobs for less than $15 and hour.

If I were busting my back $17 - I would quit and flip burgers for $15.
