And you'll say, 'Well, that's nice, but what's the catch?' And the genie says, 'Here's the catch. You don't know if you're going to be born rich or poor, white or black, male or female, able-bodied or infirm, intelligent or retarded.'
    Oh lawd have mercy you sound like a left wing liberal democrat. Being an enabler makes a person a part of the problem and does not solve the issues. No one said poor people are bad. But there are a hell of a lot of poor people abusing the tax payers and although they may be friendly and neighborly people they are leeches and destroys a nation. And you said rich people are shady but then you quote one if the richest men in the world, go figure.

    Since the beginning of time, wages have gone up. The more money people make the more money they spend. If people are making more...Im charging more. Its just that simple.......

    Also, more people will come because they mske more money. Do you think alot of mininum wage earners can go to a 20.00 haunted house when they make 7 bucks an hour? They have to work over 3 hours to go to your house now.

    Since the beginning of time... we know when minimum wages are artificially raised... so the cost of all goods and services are raised to adsorb that cost increase. Minimum wage increase don't happen in a vacuum. So the $8 minimum wage earner who now earn $16 an hour will have to pay $45 to attend a haunted house... and you same people will argue the same thing... how can a person only earning $16 an hour attend a $45 dollar haunted house?

    Do you really think you can raise minimum wage and not have that increase be passed onto everything?

    Funny, the poorest folks out there, who live off the public like parasites, always seem to have the latest games and games systems, expensive coiffures and custom acrylic nails, and fist fight each other every year to buy the newest $300 tennis shoes at the malls. People somehow afford what they want to afford.

    The only reason government chooses to raise minimum wage is because union wages (whom certain political parties are beholden to) are raised relative to minimum wages rising... so to pay back all those good union members who fund certain political campaigns... minimum wages are raised.

    Beyond that, minimum wage is designed for people getting entry level jobs, people who have no skills and hope to gain them on the job... that said the economy has been destroyed the last 5-6 years, moreso the last 4, and more and more jobs are becoming minimum wage jobs so the business can continue to operate.

    Obamacare does have the potential to destroy haunts depending on how the IRS, etc. decides to determine seasonal employment. They have already ruled that 28 hours now is legally defined as full time.

    Read for yourself how government intends to deal with small business "whiners" like haunt owners....
