Everything Will Cost More In Ohio In 2014

Everybody knows...if they don't know, they're pretty naive or plain ignorant, that increasing the minimum wage has no affect other than creating higher costs for labor and services that has an end result of higher costs for everything...that's EVERYTHING!  Everything manufactured, transported, bought and sold; nothing is exempt.  ~ Norman E.

Ohio minimum wage rising 10 cents in 2014
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio's minimum wage is going up 10 cents to $7.95 starting on Jan. 1.  The Ohio Department of Commerce on Thursday also said the new minimum for tipped employees will be $3.98 - a 5-cent per hour increase.
The state minimum wage is adjusted annually because of a 2006 voter-approved amendment to the Ohio Constitution. Increases are linked to inflation. The minimum wage jumped 15 cents at the beginning of 2013.
The Consumer Price Index for urban wage earners and clerical workers rose 1.5 percent during the period used to calculate wage increases.
The 2006 changes require wages for non-tipped employees be rounded to the nearest five cents.
The state wage for employees at small companies and 14- and 15-year-olds is tied to the federal minimum wage, which is $7.25.
A wise man once said:
It is surely undeniable that, when a man engages in remunerative labor, the impelling reason and motive of his work is to obtain property, and thereafter to hold it as his very own. If one man hires out to another his strength or skill, he does so for the purpose of receiving in return what is necessary for the satisfaction of his needs; he therefore expressly intends to acquire a right full and real, not only to the remuneration, but also to the disposal of such remuneration, just as he pleases. Thus, if he lives sparingly, saves money, and, for greater security, invests his savings in land, the land, in such case, is only his wages under another form; and, consequently, a working man's little estate thus purchased should be as completely at his full disposal as are the wages he receives for his labor. But it is precisely in such power of disposal that ownership obtains, whether the property consist of land or chattels.
Socialists, therefore, by endeavoring to transfer the possessions of individuals to the community at large, strike at the interests of every wage-earner, since they would deprive him of the liberty of disposing of his wages, and thereby of all hope and possibility of increasing his resources and of bettering his condition in life. (circa 1891)

When the powers to be see that its in their power to control the masses they make very good use of that power.  One powerful way to restrict those under their control is to limit the successful climb to a better life by making the peons think they are increasing their lot in life by dictating the wages the peons recieve...and also, preventing those that provide the wages from advancing and or expanding their business as they would like to.  Generally, or I should say, one-hundred percent of the dictataors (aka politicians) that propose (dictate) wage increases are ideologically, go back and re-read what the wise man said. ~ Norman E. Hooben

ps: When are the peons going to wake up?
