While corporate profits soar, workers employed in the food, retail and service industries cannot meet the basic standard of living. All to often, parents working within the ever increasing low wage sector wrestle between taking their sick child to the doctor's or buying food. Walmart racks in $35,000 per minute in profit and had annual sales of $405 billion, while a Walmart Associate doesn't even make $35,000 a year working full-time. In fact, it would take a Walmart Associate 786 years to earn the salary of Walmarrt's CEO Michael Duke's salary of 2012 of 20.7 million. We hear continually about the "economic recovery", but the divide between the "haves" and "have nots" has significantly widened. In recent weeks fast-food workers employed by fast food restaurants, such as McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's and KFC staged one-day strikes in cities across the country, demanding a living wage. In the 1980's Wendy's Clara Peller became an overnight sensation in the 1980s asking the quessential question, "where's the beef, those employed in the fast food industry now look at the meagre pay, asking, "where's the beef?".

DC Mayor Vincent C. Gray said no to a living wage bill that would have required big box retail stores to pay employees $12.50 hr. Mayor Gray says he supports a living wage bill, but calls this one"fundamentally flawed".

On Tuesday, November 5th, NJ voters will be asked to vote on a minimum wage increase, which will not only become law but a NJ State Constitutional Amendment.
While proponents of the minimum wage increase profess to be helping out those most in need, they refuse to look to the facts and figures that point to the completely opposite direction.
Joining us as we discuss the implications of an amendment to our NJ State Constitution and the harsh economic realities of a mandated wage increase is Matt Rooney founder of the Save Jersey blog.
We will also expose the myth of who the minimum wage earner really is; who will be hit the hardest by this increase; how the job market will be affected; how poverty will be affected and impact on the economic competitiveness of NJ.
