I would say anyone who has ever worked a thirteen hour shift at a fast food joint would be justified in saying you haven't got a clue what you are talking about on that front sir.
And with regard to the detriment of businesses, I am willing to bet all the internets in the land, that the owners and shareholders of the businesses which have cut the most hours, are also fantastically overpaid for their low skilled positions, many of whom work by going to golf courses and spas and making the occasional phone call.
Many of the businesses with the most alarming cuts, are over paying their directors and executives, refusing to make those individuals take a pay cut, even though it is not the suits who are producing the products, or doing any hard labour at all.
It must never be the case that an individual has to work three jobs at a total of nearly twenty hours a day, just to make enough to be able to afford to live in their god damn automobile.
The profits are too damn high

I am really sick of stupid posters like you. I did not say "making a profit of any size is wrong". That mind manipulation is so out of date. People here are too smart for you. Bye.

Demand goes down when prices go up? Maybe in a textbook, but this is the real world, where the cost of houses, hell even renting an apartment keeps going up, year after year. Doesn't look like there's a lack of demand there.
I'm don't particularly feel raising the minimum wage is the answer, but something has to be addressed somewhere.
