obviously those 200,000 jobs weren`t necessary,i`m not seeing a shortage of automobiles,or hamburgers,or coffee, or anything.
why would an employer eliminate a job position that was necessary just because the minimum wage went up?
if it takes 3 people to run a starbucks coffee shop and they eliminated one of them then coffee wouldn`t get made or supplies wouldn`t get reorder etc.so obviously the jobs that were eliminated weren`t necessary to keep the business going.

I don't think you understand what you're talking about, sorry.
The reason why young CEOs are rare is partially because of the lack of experience, but significantly more so the lack of connections. Reliable success in this day and age is only tangentially related to actual talent.
Anyway, who needs something like "talent" where, if you win the birth lottery, you stand to inherit as much money as a reasonable well-paid (50K a year, after taxes) can hope to amass after 1000 years of work.
It's probably also worth mentioning that saying "I hope they starve" doesn't tend to engender you to other people.
Life is not easy. I was in debt for 25 years paying off my original school loans. Now, I will need to do it again. Whomever told you that was not the reality was lying or selling you something.
It's corporations and wall street that are the issue, not unskilled labor.

Corporations and wall street set the wages, manipulate markets, and go unpunished when they F up. You and I pay for that, or did you forget 07'-08'. How are they NOT the problem?
