The Minimum Wages soars to $15 in North Dakota

IN SOME PLACES IN THE STATE OF NORTH DAKOTA BUSINESSES  LIKE McDONALD'S ARE PAYING UP TO $15 MINIMUM WAGE.  I SHOULD ADD NO THANKS TO OBAMA, BUT RATHER IN SPITE OF HIM.  BECAUSE OIL AND GAS EXPLORATION IS ON PRIVATE LANDS, LANDS WHERE THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS NO CONTROL.   THE PRESIDENT IS CONSTANTLY HARPING ON THE NEED TO RAISE THE MINIMUM WAGE, WHILE AT THE SAME TIME PUSHING GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS THAT STIFLE JOB GROWTH AND KEEP WAGES DOWN.  HE ANSWER TO THESE LOW WAGES IS SIMPLY TO MANDATE AN INCREASE, A MANDATE THAT WOULD CREATE EVEN FEWER JOBS IN THE LONG RUN.  A MANDATE THAT WOULD HELP A FEW, WHILE HURTING MANY MORE.  OH WELL, WHAT ELSE SHOULD ONE EXPECT FROM A COMMUNITY ORGANIZER WHO HAS NEVER RUN A BUSINESS AND SURROUNDS HIMSELF WITH LIKE MINDED ADVISERS.
