  1. When most places fire employees, a retailer that hire them should be thanked for, not attacked.
    Most NY retailers hire lots of part time, in between jobs etc. employees, and will not survive if offered more than the minimum wage.
    Minimum wage is not for the working adult that support his family, but for a young person that starts his first jobs, and would not have one without the minimum wage option.
    The whole minimum wage idea is to support the employee from abuse, and is bound by law by legistlators.
    Do not attack the retailers, by this act you'll drive them out of our neighborhood, and than we will have no jobs at all.
