Try this report by Burkhauser, Couch, and Wittenburg. They are from Cornell, U. of Connecticut, and The Urban Institute.
This is a link to a government site on minimum wage. You will see here that most minimum wage workers are under 24 and entry level workers.
And here is a report on the long term negative effects of raising the minimum wage. It's quite an interesting read, imo.
you must have mistakenly forgotten to provide the links to your sources.

honestly with all the negative posts by jaime, its a wonder why the mods have to post threads telling us to settle down. I have not seen one positive post from jaime. It is allllllll posted to try and tear down Obama.
Lets face it. Both candidates have done more for our country than anyone on this forum. Cept for anyone in the armed forces. These are TWO great Americans. They are putting themselves out there to be torn down by people like jaime, because they BOTH want to help our country back to a better path.
Im so sick of seeing posts describing one of the candidates like they are from the third riche
I love how Jamie pops up constantly in your whining, but none of the other constant McCain/Palin bashers come to mind. You guys have no problem when the poop is flying at Republicans, but cry the second it comes back at you.
Believe it or not Jamie doesn't support Obama. Why in the world would he post positive threads about him? Are we here to debate or post threads about how much we love the opposing candidate?
At least Jamie post coherent, readable posts. Unlike posters like Mental Modulator, that have no sentence structure or correct spelling.

You've made a potentially incendiary statement and conclusion in your opening post, when questioned, it is incumbent upon you to substantiate your claims.

JAMIE what you and John Mccain fail to recognize is the AMERICAN voter is hurting financially.

One word for you, neither Obama or McCain can fight corporate greed and the take over of America politics by private agendas.
It doesn't matter what any of they preach or lie about what they can do or plan to do, our government doesn't belong to the people anymore.
Lobbyist for private interest rules Congress, our president and our nation.
The booming mortgage business, fueled by low interest rates and soaring home values, was starting to attract shady operators and billions in losses were possible.
