I have no problem with since they are raising the pay scale on their own and not based on a government mandate. In addition they can pick and choose the best employees to work for the higher wages rather than settle for unmotivated workers sucking up high mandated wages while also sucking at their job.

The Ikea in metro Detroit is expanding-it's already a huge store. They are taking over a vacant store next to them in the same strip mall.
They have pretty stuff for low prices. Their furniture is very affordable, but you generally have to assemble most of it yourself. I like their prices on kitchen utensils-I bought an awesome cheese grater there (like the kind Olive Garden uses) for $6. Everywhere else I looked (Target, BBB, Pier One) was charging about twice that. It is what Crate and Barrel used to be before they went all upscale in the late 80s and early 90s.

That's the problem with a federal minimum wage. Say they made the minimum be a living wage in NYC, then a person living where I live would be considered well off.

The minimum wage is destructive to the free market and needs to be eliminated.

They're raising the federal minimum to 10.10, but that's only on government contracts.Obama isn't the problem. The problem is an electorate that would vote a man like him into office.

IKEA does have to buy the silence of their employees, so that the public won't know what kind of meat they are using in their meatballs.
