Minimum Wages should be set by the economy and not fictitiously set on the discretion of the Politicians. Because in doing so, prices on products go up (ex: a simple hamburger) and worker layoff increase/unemployment. Again, this is Econ 101.
Pushed my (University) 1968 beater car up and into the parking lot of the bank. The year: 1971) Went inside, using that car as collateral (!!!) , got a $5,000 loan. Purchased machine and a new van. Knocked on doors..........

When was the last time you cleaned your office?
My gosh. We just did a through cleaning; throwing this and that away----you know, all those articles, bits and pieces "you just had to save!" I mean it had some value, right?

They came out great!
