Actually, Steve, you need to try learning something we like to call "basic economics". The economic damage predicted when the minimum wage was raised in the early 1950s ... ACTUALLY HAPPENED. There was a little think called a recession if you'd care to look it up. And pricies are rising so fast because wgaes are A factor, not THE factor; the massive increas ein the money supply by government and profligate government spending are major factors as well.
Since the "stagnant wages" myth is only repeated by the ignorant (total real compensation - and overall worker living standards - have continually and substantially increased over that time, perhaps you might look into reality, rather than stake and ridiculous talking points.
