The problem of the minimum dwelling is that of establishing the elementary minimum of space, air, light, and heat required by man in order that he be able to fully develop his life functions without experiencing limitations due to his dwelling, i.e. a minimum modus vivendi in place of a modus non moriendi.
Walter Gropius
In the lead up to the Iraq war and its later conduct, I saw at a minimum, true dereliction, negligence and irresponsibility, at worse, lying, incompetence and corruption.
Anthony Zinni
I think that more and more Americans are insistent that, at a minimum, gay couples should be treated with respect and when they see a political party trying to stigmatize a group of people who are hardworking, who play by the rules, who raise decent families, they’re troubled by it.
Steve Schmidt
I don’t think there’s a date minimum or maximum. I don’t get the whole ‘All right, you’ve got to wait three days to call after the date.’ If I got a number from a girl, I’d call that night. There’s no science to it for me. You just do what it is that you feel like doing.
Channing Tatum
I was always on set, I was always working, so my study was down to the bare minimum required. So I am one of the few who didn’t study ‘Lord of the Flies.’
Eliza Taylor
I believe the Palestinians have never indicated a willingness to meet our minimum requirements, which are recognition of Israel’s permanence and legitimacy as a Jewish state and end of claims and end of conflict.
Michael Oren

Paul Craig Roberts
If the only way you can build an emergency fund is to pay the minimum due on your credit card, that is what you need to do.

Nicolas Anelka

Morgan Freeman
Misclassification means workers are denied not just minimum wage and overtime but other social safety net protections like workers’ compensation and unemployment insurance.

David Lynch
I do not support raising the minimum wage, and the reason is as follows. When the minimum wage is raised, workers are priced out of the market. That is the economic reality that seems, at least so far, to be missing from this discussion.
John Sununu
Certainly other things we can do, we gotta promote after-school employment, give kids an opportunity, raising the minimum wage was part of that, we can’t expect that young people are going to feel they can make a living out there for such low wages.
Matt Gonzalez
The minimum wage can play a vital role in lifting hard-working families above the poverty line.
Adam Cohen

Before the government decides to raise the minimum wage, it must consider the effects of the tax and benefits merry-go-round that affects the low-paid.
Jacob Rees-Mogg
We’d certainly have paid leave already by now, we’d have equal pay, we’d have a living minimum wage – a lot of things would change having that diversity of opinion in Washington. We certainly wouldn’t be debating whether women should have access to birth control.
Kirsten Gillibrand
Social Security, which transformed life for the elderly in this country, was ‘socialist.’ The concept of the ‘minimum wage’ was seen as a radical intrusion into the marketplace and was described as ‘socialist.’
Bernie Sanders
Regardless of what the minimum wage is, you really have the market wage. And if we’re not taking care of our people, then we’re going to lose good talent, at every level.
John Schnatter
I eat excellent bread, clean meat, good crisp veggies, organic fruits and nice wine and cheese. It is one of the things I am truly grateful for. I’m not kidding. You can’t ask a single mother of three working two jobs for minimum wage to eat that way. I am lucky.
Rachael Taylor
The transgender community has always been a part of Hawaiian society, where people who don’t conform to the binary system of man/woman, masculine/feminine are accepted or, at minimum, tolerated.
Janet Mock
Well, I mean, Congress did originally set the formula for the state grants, and they guaranteed every state a minimum formula. So that was a congressional decision.
Michael Chertoff
Minimum wage law is the ‘People’s Fed.’ Tie minimum wage to money supply. If there is pushback against this idea, then shut down the Fed and its ability to distort the economy, penalizing labor, or make the Fed’s distortions available to all businesses and all workers.
Max Keiser
Without going to what I think is my limit. I always say that my ideal is to get pole with the minimum effort, and to win the race at the slowest speed possible.
Alain Prost
I set myself 600 words a day as a minimum output, regardless of the weather, my state of mind or if I’m sick or well. There must be 600 finished words-not almost right words.
Arthur Hailey
Our minimum wage is too low. So we need to raise it.
Michelle Lujan Grisham

Thom Tillis
I take a lean-startup approach: creating agile, interdisciplinary teams that get the minimum viable product to market as soon as possible. It’s my job to be entrepreneur-in-residence, an internal change agent.
Todd Park
Expanding the EITC can get us close to a universal basic minimum income.
Ro Khanna
The impact of a minimum wage depends on how high it is to average wages. If you have too high a minimum wage, it will hurt job creation, and you will have negative job effects.
Zanny Minton Beddoes
High-quality health care is not available to millions of Americans who don’t have health insurance, or whose substandard plans provide minimum coverage. That’s why the Affordable Care Act is so important. It provides quality health insurance to both the uninsured and underinsured.
Bob Beckel

I completely believe in the lean startup and minimum viable product; I just I think that people are setting the threshold for minimum viable too low.

Miriam Defensor-Santiago
I don’t know of a single economist who disagrees that when you raise the minimum wage, you kill jobs for the poor.
Newt Gingrich
Adulthood is the ever-shrinking period between childhood and old age. It is the apparent aim of modern industrial societies to reduce this period to a minimum.
Thomas Szasz
I used to have hamburgers coming and going, especially when I was on the road. Now, occasionally I will still have that quarter pounder because I love fast food, but you have to keep it to a minimum. I am now opting for salads and just healthier lunches.
Aretha Franklin
I have this exercise that I propose to everybody: Hug a tree and complain for a minimum 15 minutes. Be yourself, and do something that you really feel deeply.
Marina Abramovic
My sister and I had a lemonade stand – with a two-drink minimum.
Wendy Liebman
If the price of a burger goes up 5 cents, and the minimum wage that you have received is going up from $7.25 to $15 an hour – and there have been a number of studies that document just how much the price of a burger might go up if you increase the minimum wage. You match the costs, and the benefits far outweigh the costs.
Tom Perez
The national minimum wage has not been increased in 9 years. By year’s end, 21 States across America will have a minimum wage exceeding the Federal minimum wage.
Sherwood Boehlert
In the general economy, you get government involved in making market decisions – first of all, they’re going to get it wrong. For a minimum wage, you will actually reduce the number of jobs available.

The minimum wage in Denmark is about twice that of the United States, and people who are totally out of the labor market or unable to care for themselves have a basic income guarantee of about $100 per day.
Bernie Sanders
I think we’ve got to be competitive here in Illinois. It’s critical we’re competitive. We’re hurting our economy by having the minimum wage above the national. We’ve got to move back to the national.
Bruce Rauner
You can’t expect a woman who’s holding down a part-time job to train for the biggest race in the world. She has to have a minimum wage, and I think it’s something that is pretty crazy that we don’t have that.
Lizzie Armitstead
Congress has not raised the minimum wage since 1997. The minimum wage is now at its lowest level in 50 years adjusted for inflation.
Russ Carnahan
Those of us in the Congress must confront and overcome Republican intransigence to increasing the minimum wage, extending unemployment insurance and protecting food stamps.
Charles B. Rangel
When America’s early pioneers first turned their eyes toward the West, they did not demand that somebody take care of them if they got ill or got old. They did not demand maximum pay for minimum work, and even pay for no work at all.
Paul Harvey
Statistical studies are all over the lot about the pluses and minuses of raising the minimum wage.

Philip Baker Hall
You can’t take a coal miner making $95,000 a year, the only work in these parts where you can support a family without having to hold down three jobs at once… and tell them, ‘You can make minimum wage,’ or, ‘We can give you job training for jobs that don’t exist in West Virginia.’
Richard Ojeda
Anyone who’s tried to pay a heating bill, fill a prescription, or simply buy groceries knows all too well that the current minimum wage does not cut the mustard.
Sherrod Brown
The most important lesson to take away from allowing the minimum wage and unemployment benefit data to talk is that abstract notions of what is right, good and just should be examined from a concrete, operational point of view. A dose of reality is most edifying.
Steve Hanke
Twitter was like a poem. It was rich, real and spontaneous. It really fit my style. In a year and a half, I tweeted 60,000 tweets, over 100,000 words. I spent a minimum eight hours a day on it, sometimes 24 hours.
Ai Weiwei
I like to keep it bare minimum, be it make-up or accessories.

Jason Kander
I can tell you what people on minimum wage want: They want a career. They don’t want a minimum wage.

Laws protecting this right – whatever the level of the minimum wage, and whatever the Government chooses to call it – are only as strong as the threat of enforcement is both real and feared.
Emily Thornberry
People used to respect royalty to an insane extent that doesn’t exist nowadays. These people never shouted. They never moved, really. Their effort was minimum. They were the most powerful people, but they were just calm.

Mae Jemison
A people numerically large may attain to ways of thought and enterprise that no political censure can reduce to a minimum; but under narrower conditions, it may easily come about that the whole people will fall asleep.
Bjornstjerne Bjornson
I know that I make technical mistakes from time to time. It’s one of the aspects of my game that I’ve been working on for years. I think I’ve managed to reduce the number of those technical mistakes to a minimum, but occasionally, they happen. On the other hand, I do have moments of technical brilliance.
Thomas Muller
A newspaper should be the maximum of information, and the minimum of comment.
Richard Cobden
To reward work, to grow the middle class and strengthen the economy, to give millions of Americans the respect they deserve… It’s time to raise the minimum wage.

I’d be 100 percent supportive of a minimum wage – kind of industry specific, maybe regionally specific – for guest workers, so that we’re not creating incentives for employers to bring in immigrants to lower the price of labor.
Ron Johnson
I walk in hotel halls late at night while listening to audiobooks if I haven’t yet achieved a minimum of 12,000 steps that day.
Shari Redstone
The typical minimum wage earner is a provider and a breadwinner – most likely a woman – responsible for paying bills, running a household and raising children.
Tom Perez
If you are different, or you have minimum possibilities, you can still succeed. I am living proof of that.

Marcus Samuelsson
At a minimum, in explaining evolutionary pathways through time, the constraints imposed by history rise to equal prominence with the immediate advantages of adaptation.
Stephen Jay Gould
Literally, if we took away the minimum wage – if conceivably it was gone – we could potentially virtually wipe out unemployment completely because we would be able to offer jobs at whatever level.
Michele Bachmann
Whether it’s raising the minimum wage, fixing our broken immigration system or supporting an economic climate that gives our businesses that chance to succeed, I hope to continue to fight these important battles on behalf of my constituents.

Bruce Rauner
The role of a comedian is to make the audience laugh, at a minimum of once every fifteen seconds.

Doug Ducey
I have said, on a number of occasions, that we could have a lower minimum wage or no minimum wage.
Bruce Rauner
Consistency of performance is essential. You don’t have to be exceptional every week but as a minimum you need to be at a level that even on a bad day you get points on the board.
Sean Dyche
Presumptuous for me to say, but at least – at a minimum – I’ve been able to influence the direction of the Democratic Party on foreign policy. And I’ve been relatively – presumptuous to say – relatively successful legislatively in the Senate, being able to win a lot of Republican friends, and being able to cross the aisle.
Joe Biden
Whenever I’ve had to tamper with history for plot purposes, I make sure to mention that in my author’s note, and I try to keep such tampering to a bare minimum. I also attempt to keep my characters true to their historical counterparts. This is not always possible, of course.
Sharon Kay Penman
Let me announce this to the American people tonight one of the best things about this debate, as a Democrat from Massachusetts, I have proposed eliminating, getting rid of the alternative minimum tax.
Richard Neal
While Donald Trump believes in huge tax breaks for billionaires, he believes that states should actually have the right to lower the minimum wage below $7.25. What an outrage!
Bernie Sanders
I was captain and should have set the example. I would lift a minimum of weights. Mine was natural physical strength. I always thought quickness and agility were much more important.
Merlin Olsen
The minimum wage was due for an increase, but it was important that we offset its cost to small businesses.
J. D. Hayworth
By raising the minimum wage in California, 700,000 people are going to lose their jobs. There are a lot of opportunities for companies to prosper in Florida and compete here, and that’s what I’m going after.
Rick Scott
The minimum I need is six months to allow for dithering, procrastination and the research. The research times varies from book to book; some are faster because they’re based off resources I have at my disposal.
Lauren Willig
European centralism, European statism, the communitization of sovereign debt, a Europeanization of social systems and of the minimum wage would be the wrong way.

The conditions which now exist in Germany make it impossible for industrial production to reach the levels which the occupying powers agreed were essential for a minimum German peacetime economy.
James F. Byrnes

Rene Redzepi
We’ve led the way in the $15 minimum wage.

At a family’s most difficult time, I want to make sure at a minimum that they have the very basic of comforts: the ability to grieve their loss privately and the knowledge that their country is grateful for their loved one’s sacrifice and service.
Dave Reichert
The minimum wage is the black teenage unemployment act. It is the guaranteed way of holding the poor, the minorities and the disenfranchised out of the mainstream is if you price their original services too high.
Arthur Laffer
I would be open to a proposal that would have some minimum tax level for everyone.
Tim Kaine
I think it’s important for people to believe their elections are on the up and up and they aren’t being tampered with by anyone, and in this particular instance there’s a large body of evidence that at a minimum Russia tried to tamper with our election.
Charlie Baker
Ohio is one of only two states that have a minimum wage below the federal level of $5.15 an hour.
Sherrod Brown
I spend most of my time thinking about – whether I am making the minimum or a big number, salary-wise – how can I be competitive as long as I have an opportunity to play.
Joey Votto
I know people like myself where we’ve got resorts, or we’re in the hospitality business, and we just can’t make money because you’re paying someone minimum $42 per hour or something on a Sunday.
Gerry Harvey
All my teammates, whether they’ve been playing with me or sitting on the bench and not dressing, they’ve supported me. I don’t think I’d be too good a person if I didn’t do at least the bare minimum of the same.
Robin Lopez
Now that I look back, I realize that a life predicated on being obedient and taking orders is a very comfortable life indeed. Living in such a way reduces to a minimum one’s need to think.
Adolf Eichmann
At minimum, we must recognize that there are legitimate, unanswered questions about whether the Obama Justice Department involved themselves in a political project targeting then-candidate Donald Trump – a suggestion that has far more evidence behind it than the directionless investigation into Trump/Russian collusion.
Mark Meadows
I like to believe that science is becoming mainstream. It should have never been something that sort of geeky people do and no one else thinks about. Whether or not, it will always be what geeky people do. It should, as a minimum, be what everybody thinks about because science is all around us.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
The rationale for eliminating the alternative minimum tax is that such a backup system should not be necessary if the tax code is fundamentally fair and eliminates all the loopholes that made it possible for high-income taxpayers to escape taxation in the first place.
James B. Stewart
I always layer my vocals a lot. I sing a minimum of three layers of the same line every time, and then it’s always one or two or sometimes even more harmonies.
Tobias Forge
When coffee prices fall below production costs, farmers are often forced off their land, and they lose their homes, everything. With fair trade, farmers get a fair price for their harvest with a guaranteed minimum, so they can invest in their crops.
Nell Newman
Steve Jobs didn’t seek solace among minimum wage workers. He sought it from highly educated men and women who understood and shared his focus on growth, technology, and company-building.
Michael Gerber
There are three kinds of people in this world: 1) People who make lists, 2) People who don’t make lists, and 3) People who carve tiny Nativity scenes out of pecan hulls. I’m sorry, there isn’t really a third category; it’s just that a workable list needs a minimum of three items, I feel.
Mary Roach
Raising the minimum wage seems to all economists to, at the very least, fail to ‘raise’ employment, and we’d all like to see better inclusion of low-skilled workers into good-paying jobs.
Edmund Phelps
I try to be mindful of snacking, but salty chips sometimes sneak in. I tend to avoid sugars – luckily, I am more of a ‘salty tooth’ – but I try to keep my sugar intake to a minimum and find some healthy alternatives when a craving hits.
Tamara Taylor
I was making almost minimum wage on ‘The Young and the Restless.’ But it was my first job, so I accepted my first quote. I had a great time on it, and it obviously led me to better things.
Eva Longoria
One of the biggest disagreements between Sen. Hagan and I – I don’t believe we should be building an economy that’s founded on making ends meet on minimum wage. It’s impossible; it’s a stepping stone.
Thom Tillis
I do meet-and-greets at every show and meet a minimum of 20-35 fans at each.
Bret Michaels
At the current $5.15 an hour, the federal minimum wage has become a poverty wage. A full-time worker with one child lives below the official poverty line.
Bernie Sanders
I am intrigued with the shapes people choose as their symbols to create a language. There is within all forms a basic structure, an indication of the entire object with a minimum of lines that becomes a symbol. This is common to all languages, all people, all times.
Keith Haring
6.6 million people will benefit from a rise in the minimum wage.
Russ Carnahan
In a world where the latest app can sell for billions of dollars, there are plenty of ways to provide a minimum of humanity for those caught in conflict, who never had the opportunity to reach their potential in the first place.
Antonio Guterres
There is a minimum requirement of morality, of moral compass, of decency, of moral empathy. And if you are incapable of meeting that minimum requirement, you can’t even talk to me about policy.
Ana Navarro
The minimum I run each day is 2 1/2 miles. I’ll get to the weekend, and sometimes I’ll run 10 miles. I’ve gotten up to 16 miles on the weekend. Running keeps me locked in.
Ray Allen
I think three-to-five years ahead minimum. I have a short-term plan, a five-year plan and a decade plan.
Steve Garvey
When I come off stage, I just shut up. I try as best I can not to use my voice at all. You know I love to talk, but I try when I come off stage to have the minimum amount of vocal interaction because I need at least a good 10 hours to just recover from my form of extreme singing.
Rob Halford
There should be a minimum on the air pressure but not a maximum. Every game, they’re taking air out of the footballs I’m throwing, and I think that’s a disadvantage for the way that I like them prepped.
Aaron Rodgers
I will advocate moving the Illinois minimum wage back to the national minimum wage.
Bruce Rauner
It takes so long for the folks who are earning minimum wage to finally see a little bit of a rise… that it takes a little nudge, I think, from government.
J. B. Pritzker
And I love a bath. I’ve had weeks where I’ve had a minimum of two a day.
Jonathan Bailey
I want minimum information given with maximum politeness.
Jackie Kennedy
No person can maximize the American Dream on the minimum wage.
Benjamin Todd Jealous
The best way to lift people out of poverty and boost wages is to grow our GDP faster. While Trump is open to raising the minimum wage, the best approach is to grow faster.
Peter Navarro
On the campaign, I’ve had the privilege of advocating for important issues that affect all women, like demanding equal pay for equal work, pushing to raise our minimum wage, and promoting the idea of paid family leave.
Ann Callis
I do not support a federal minimum wage. I think every state has a different economy, a different cost of living. I don’t believe that’s the role of the federal government.
Joni Ernst
I can spend a minimum of $4,000 a month on makeup.
Huda Kattan
Once again, the Republicans in the Senate have rejected an increase in the minimum wage. They support tax breaks for multi-millionaires, but they oppose helping the working poor to earn a decent income.
Mark Dayton
The UCI have to make the decision to put in rules into women’s cycling that they have in men’s cycling: you know, like a minimum budget to run a women’s team and that sort of thing so that it becomes more professional.
Lizzie Armitstead
Among other things, the Real ID Act sets minimum security criteria that states would have to meet to have their driver’s licenses accepted as identification to board a commercial flight or enter federal facilities.
Elton Gallegly
For every gardener there is a minimum level of engagement that is needed to sustain and develop the relationship. There is no magic figure to this and it will vary from person to person and season to season, but it is there.
Monty Don
I would not waste time, as Senator Gillibrand does, on things such as dictating a national minimum driving age and sponsoring a ‘National Day of Play.’ I’d help New Yorkers understand that we get less in value from Washington than what we send there in taxes.
Wendy Long
No adviser to a president is going to get his way all of the time, but at a minimum, that adviser should be able to defend the tilt of an administration’s policy as if it were his own. If not, he should make room for those who can.
Bret Stephens
I have no issue with raising minimum wage, but then the customer can’t say to us, ‘Why are you raising your prices?’
Tilman J. Fertitta
Racism is man’s gravest threat to man – the maximum of hatred for a minimum of reason.
Abraham Joshua Heschel
On balance, I am a supporter of the minimum wage going up. We’ve got to be very careful what we wish for because some employers – and there could be a lot of them – will be scared away from hiring new people or creating incremental hours for part-time people as a result of that wage going up.
Howard Schultz
Raising the minimum wage is the right thing to do, but it’s a popular thing to do as well.
Nancy Pelosi
Housework has been reduced to a minimum. Even without servants, there is scarcely enough to do to keep women occupied eight hours a day. Moreover, girls are now trained to handle jobs in high school. They graduate from school and college prepared to take over places in the business world.
Van Heflin
You can refi your car loan just like you can refi your mortgage. It’s even easier and less expensive. There’s no appraisal process, and fees are minimal for a new car title. A couple of caveats: Most lenders require that the car be less than five years old and have a minimum loan balance of $7,500.
Jean Chatzky
The Davis Cup should be home and away from the semi-finals as a minimum, I would say even the quarters.
Mats Wilander
We have to raise the minimum wage.
Martin O’Malley
Through the centuries, men of law have been persistently concerned with the resolution of disputes in ways that enable society to achieve its goals with a minimum of force and maximum of reason.
Archibald Cox
I sit in places like Costa Coffee in Banstead and write rubbish. I need a deadline. I think about the 44 tour dates and keep imagining standing in front of all these people. Then every day I write 15 jokes minimum.
Tim Vine
If the opponents of an increase in the minimum wage were correct, then every time you fly to Seattle, you’ve got to bring a bagged lunch because there shouldn’t be any restaurants because they should have all have gone out of business as a result of raising the minimum wage.
Tom Perez
Groupon’s model: Getting the group discount rate first, finding the group second. The daily deal goes out and, if a minimum number of people sign up, they can all share in the group rate. Vendor gets customers, customers get a discount, Groupon gets a cut.
Rachel Sklar
Raising the minimum wage isn’t just pro-worker; it’s pro-economic growth.
Tom Perez
The first job I ever had was at a pool-liner-manufacturing plant. Minimum wage was $4.25, and that’s what I was making. It was this huge, hot, un-air-conditioned factory staffed with all women and me. This is in Georgia, during the summertime, so it was pretty ridiculous.
Jack McBrayer
Raising the minimum wage means we have workers paying more in to support the Social Security system.
Elizabeth Warren
The only thing I didn’t like as a kid was I was required to do a minimum of 3 hours of schoolwork every day, and there was a tutor on set.
Jonathan Ke Quan
Illinois will only get economically healthy if we stop focusing on growing minimum wages and start focusing on growing everyone’s wages.
Bruce Rauner
Twenty-six miles is now my daily minimum.
Terry Fox
Despite trying to keep luggage to minimum, I do like to have all my cleansers and my hair and nail things to hand.
Carol Drinkwater
I’ve been very outspoken that the minimum wage needs to rise.
Brad Schneider
Therefore coercion of the non-invasive, when justifiable at all, is to be justified on the ground that it secures, not a minimum of ‘ invasion, but a minimum of pain.
Benjamin Tucker
What I want to do is create jobs that make the minimum wage irrelevant.
Thom Tillis
Raising the minimum wage means raising the living wage – and that’s good news for Ohio.
Sherrod Brown
When I travel around the country and talk about the need to raise the minimum wage or expand access to paid leave, I often talk about the need for us to reject false choices.
Tom Perez
You get paid more at McDonald’s than you do under the existing minimum wage.
Norm Coleman
Most arguments for instituting or raising a minimum wage are based on fairness and redistribution. Even if workers are getting a competitive wage, many of us are deeply disturbed that some hard-working families still have very little.
Christina Romer
When I was young, my dad, a veteran who attended college on the GI Bill, lost his job at age 55 when the company he worked for was sold. My entire family pitched in – my mom took in sewing, and I got a minimum wage job after school.
Tammy Duckworth
Hedge funds try to produce above-average investment returns using tactics ranging from traditional stock-picking to complex derivative and arbitrage plays. High minimum investments, redemption restrictions and aggressive strategies make them suitable mainly for more sophisticated and well-heeled investors.
Alex Berenson
Many unions have contracts with employers that are based on a multiple of the prevailing minimum wage. If the minimum wage goes up, union salaries go up by a similar percentage.
Neal Boortz
One decision I made in writing ‘Henry and Clara’ was that I would keep Lincoln’s appearances and any dialogue by him to an absolute minimum, because I think readers don’t quite believe it when novelists have Lincoln walking around and saying things. They just know they’re in the presence of stage machinery.
Thomas Mallon
When I start a book, I write a minimum of five pages every day, except weekends. If I’m going on a ski trip, I take my computer with me, get up at six, do my five pages, and then go skiing.
Elizabeth George
I’ve been told I’m a good guest. I don’t take up much space, I don’t eat a lot, and I keep my complaints to a minimum.
Carole Radziwill
Free educational materials will, at minimum, prepare more people for college and allow them to be more successful once they get there. Most students want credentials that employers respect, and free educational materials alone will not do this.
Sal Khan
I am changing the culture in this Pakistan environment and I am not interested in players doing just the bare minimum. I want players winning us games of cricket and pushing themselves to be the best they can be.
Mickey Arthur
Now the main areas of higher education that still enjoy considerable financial support from government are subjects like engineering and science and the research ringfence which is the basic minimum to protect Britain’s scientific competitiveness.
Vince Cable
Businesses operating in fragile or conflict-affected environments bear a responsibility to, at the very minimum, do no harm and avoid fuelling conflict or reinforcing fragility.
Peter Maurer
When I was a rebellious teenager, I wanted minimum government and maximum freedom, which is really just maximum fun. Somewhere down the road, that went from being a liberal thing to being a conservative thing.
Gavin McInnes
Open all the debates that you want, but I think that the players that I select, and in whom I have total confidence, deserve a minimum amount of respect.
Didier Deschamps
The minimum wage is something that F.D.R. put in place a long time ago during the Great Depression. I don’t think it worked then. It didn’t solve any problems then and it hasn’t solved any problems in 50 years.
John Raese
We have to make a determination of what the minimum standards are for police, fire and emergency services in all of America’s major cities. Once we determine that, then we can decide what the funding is.
Warren Rudman
If Donald Trump wants to raise the minimum wage to $15, yes, I will work with Donald Trump.
Tom Perez
I support raising the federal minimum wage. What I’ve said is I don’t want San Diego to be at a competitive disadvantage, particularly for our small businesses and our entrepreneurs to have one set of wages for San Diego and a different set of wages for surrounding cities.
Kevin Faulconer
The beauty of our democracy lies in the American value of equality: if you vote, you have a seat at the table. If you speak, you have a chance to persuade others. A billionaire and a minimum wage earner have the same power at the ballot box.
Christine Pelosi
If I can create the minimum of my plans and desires, there shall be no regrets.
Bessie Coleman
Incremental increases in the minimum wage won’t address the underlying skills and investment gaps in Illinois.
Bruce Rauner
It has now been over 7 years since Congress last raised the minimum wage to its current level of $5.15 per hour. Since that last increase, Congress’s failure to adjust the wage for inflation has reduced the purchasing power of the minimum wage to record low levels.
Jon Corzine
One of the great constraints on economic growth and employment is that the tax and benefits system has grown up over generations and does not give the right incentives. Increasing the minimum wage does not solve this problem.
Jacob Rees-Mogg
I’m more convinced than when I accepted this job that we can create a viable Ford Motor Co. that makes cars and trucks that people really do prefer. And we can make them using minimum resources and minimum time and be competitive with our competition.
Alan Mulally
We focus sometimes too much on the minimum wage, and we should be talking about living wages and middle class wages and pensions and benefits and the kind of thing that people in the industrial Midwest talk about all the time.
Tim Ryan
The minimum we should hope for with any display technology is that it should do no harm.
Edward Tufte
Garnishments tend to happen when people hide from their debts and stop making even minimum payments. Eventually, creditors sell the debt to a collection agency.
Jean Chatzky
I think they need to expand the playoff system. I think the minimum should be 16 teams, but they could easily go with more than that… in other words, I want to see more football. Everybody from rec league softball on down can figure out how to put together a tournament and yet Division I can’t.
Mike Leach
Mandatory minimum sentencing has disproportionately affected blacks, Hispanics and others who often don’t have the financial means to fight back.
Rand Paul
I was a waitress at a local pub. I was really bad with money and it taught me the value of it as I was on minimum wage.
Francesca Hayward
On my first day in office as President Quavo, I’d move my whole family into the White House. Second, I’d pull all the troops back. Third, I’d raise the minimum wage to a good, nice amount so people get paid.
I wrote a script – a script about a guy working on the automobile assembly line; I never could get money for that. I did a pilot about minimum wage workers for HBO that didn’t get picked up; they thought it was depressing, even though it was a comedy.
Richard Linklater
When you’re working with a smaller budget I suppose one of the things that has to be in your mind when you are writing is that you have to keep the characters down to a minimum.
Atom Egoyan
I thought in this country, the best social program was a job. Yet minimum wage jobs aren’t paying enough to keep families out of poverty.
Barbara Mikulski
It is Trump who plays with the tax code to pay no taxes; it is Trump whose Trump-brand products are made overseas by cheap labor; it is Trump who hires undocumented workers from Poland to work on his projects, then refuses to pay them minimum wages.
Bob Beckel
By tying minimum wage to money supply, the poor’s income would rise and fall with the rise and fall in money supply.
Max Keiser
I was a huge rereader, so I’ve read all the Chronicles of Narnia, at minimum, 13 times each. In reading that series, I realized that someone had written those books, and that was that person’s job. And I thought, ‘That is the job for me. That is the job I’m going to have when I grow up.’
Lisa Papademetriou
I’m not sure there’s another way to help move more people out of poverty than to raise the minimum wage.
John Hickenlooper
Despite broad public support, raising the minimum wage is always difficult owing to the disproportionate influence that wealthy firms and donors have in Congress.
Angus Deaton
Raising the minimum wage would be a positive step in reducing poverty, the humiliation of living in poverty, and dependence on public assistance.
Ron Crumpton
I’ve been out of work myself and hated it. Any work, even on a minimum wage, is better than none.
Kemi Badenoch
I don’t want to put words in Geithner’s mouth, but I think he is generally against the revolving door of government officials taking jobs with companies that they have overseen or in roles that involve lobbying. At minimum, I’m pretty sure he felt that way about himself.
Andrew Ross Sorkin
I was such a lazy teenager: I didn’t read or play the piano beyond the bare minimum.
Stephen Hough
Taxes on capital, taxes on labor, inflation, bureaucratic regulation, minimum wage laws, are all – to different degrees – unnecessary slices of the wedge that stand between an individual’s effort and reward for that effort.
Jack Kemp
My priorities are a fair trade policy in this country, increasing the minimum wage, going after the drug companies for the way that they charge and their whole pricing structure that have put absolutely amazing drugs out of reach for so many Americans.
Sherrod Brown
Reparations – not just aid – should be provided by those responsible for devastating Iraqi civilian society by cruel sanctions and military actions, and – together with other criminal states – for supporting Saddam Hussein through his worst atrocities and beyond. That is the minimum that honesty requires.
Noam Chomsky
Raising the minimum wage does not take from growth, it adds to growth.
Phil Murphy
I went to Ohio University studying arts and history, and playing football. But I was only interested in girls, my pals and sports. I only did the minimum for school.
Ed O’Neill
I believe that it is girls’ human rights to go to school to be educated, minimum, until they are 18.
Guler Sabanci
I recommend limiting one’s involvement in other people’s lives to a pleasantly scant minimum.
Quentin Crisp
You cannot be against a raise in the minimum wage and for cutting government assistance and still say that you are worried about the people living in poverty.
Ron Crumpton
The sad fact is that the same terrorist scenarios, if they occurred in five different States, there could be five different sets of responses to the American people. We need, at a minimum, a level of coordination on communicating threats to the public.
Vito Fossella
Corporate greed, corporate bullying cannot be tolerated – it’s time for a global rule of law to guarantee fair trade, rights, minimum wages on which people can live with dignity, and safe and secure work.
Sharan Burrow
My mom worked at McDonald’s, and she decided she wanted to make more money, so she got into the management program at McDonald’s. And that’s how you move up the chain. It’s not by demanding that minimum wage is raised; it’s by actually acquiring the skills. That’s the way that people get ahead in life.
Raul Labrador
At a minimum the majority of search dollars will flow to a social media model because people care most about what their peers think and the technology is there for that information to be quickly shared on products and services.
Erik Qualman
My wife and I decided to try and kick start our kitchens to a $15 minimum wage for cooks. I’ve probably had to go through and raise every menu price now by 50 cents because it took away my profit. I just underestimated what it was going to cost.
Tom Douglas
Money is like poetry because both involve learning to communicate in a compressed language that packs a lot of meaning and consequence into the minimum semantic space.
John Lanchester
Throughout the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s, federal mandatory minimum laws were implemented that forced judges to deliver sentences far lengthier than they would have if allowed to use their own discretion. The result has been decades of damage, particularly to young people.
Rand Paul
To have a personal life is the minimum freedom you have to give to a human being.
Audrey Tautou
People will say ‘how can you have a plane when your workers are on minimum wage?’ I said ‘but I don’t set the minimum wage.’ If the minimum wage would be the living wage, then the Government who set the rules should set it at the living wage. That’s how I look at it.
Mike Ashley
The Japanese have a wonderful sense of design and a refinement in their art. They try to produce beautiful paintings with the minimum number of strokes.
David Rockefeller
Public appearances are a headache. I hold mine down to a minimum.
Jack Nicklaus
If we reduce the minimum voting age to 16, as we should, then people could be auto-registered when they are issued with a national insurance card.
Jess Phillips
My bare minimum for going out is lipstick and curled eyelashes.
Riley Keough
You’ll get the biggest bang for each buck by paying off the highest interest rate debt in your portfolio first, while making minimum payments on the remainder. It’s called the avalanche method, and it gets you out of debt cheapest and fastest.
Jean Chatzky
The minimum wage is not something that you want to stay on as a permanent basis. For example, if you have a minimum wage job, you don’t stay there 20 or 30 years. You don’t put your children through college working on minimum wage.
John Raese
The minimum wage should be a living wage.
Jon Ossoff
Data do not indicate that mandatory minimum sentences keep our communities safer. Instead, mandatory minimums are disproportionately harming people and communities of color.
Ralph Northam
I’m more concerned about maximum wages, not minimum wages.
Greg Gianforte
I wash and moisturize my face in the morning and at night. If I have a show, I may even wash before and after the show. I never go to sleep with makeup on my face. At the minimum, I’m at least going to use makeup wipes to take my makeup off.
Instead of focusing on this sort of defeatist mentality where we’ve gotta up the minimum wage, why don’t we focus on creating better-paying jobs?
Thom Tillis
I believe in a balanced government. I don’t believe in minimum or maximum. Balance is always the best way.
Sonia Gandhi
My mother raised me herself, along with my six younger siblings, in Cleveland, and life wasn’t easy even in the best of times. At age 42, she died, and it fell on me, then aged 22 and working minimum wage, to take care of all of us. At the time, I was newly married with a baby son. And I was deeply afraid for our future.
Nina Turner
Raising the minimum wage, as President Obama proposed in his State of the Union address, tends to be more popular with the general public than with economists.
Christina Romer
A minimum precaution: keep your anti-malware protections up to date, and install security updates for all your software as soon as they arrive.
Barton Gellman
If you’re going to nap, make sure you have a proper chunk of time blocked out. I’m not one of these guys that does the 15-20 minute nap. I don’t play those games. I’m, like, an hour minimum. I’m not gonna lay down unless I know I have at least an hour.
J. J. Watt
Good generalship is a realization that… you’ve got to try and figure out how to accomplish your mission with a minimum loss of human life.
Norman Schwarzkopf
I envisage there being absolutely no regulation whatsoever – no minimum wage, no maternity or paternity rights, no unfair dismissal rights, no pension rights – for the smallest companies that are trying to get off the ground, in order to give them a chance.
Andrea Leadsom
The only area that I would agree with minimum wage is in immigration reform, the guest worker program.
Ron Johnson
Being unemployed – or working at minimum wage – is rough in the best of circumstances.
Adam Cohen
Interestingly enough, on every team there’s usually a minimum of two and a maximum of seven knuckleheads on a roster.
Howie Long
For restaurants that have a minimum gratuity charge on large groups, the IRS will now count those tips as regular wages rather than traditional tips that we are all familiar with when we dine out. Ask any server, and they will tell you that this will directly affect their day-to-day lifestyle.
Kevin McCarthy
I don’t leave my house – I don’t care if it’s raining or scorching hot out – without a face cream with a minimum of SPF 15, if not more.
Tiffany Dupont
As we move beyond Women’s History Month, I am committed to advancing legislation to raise the minimum wage and ensure women are paid equally for equal work.
Colleen Hanabusa
Someday I hope Americans will not believe that anyone had to spend his or her days fighting for limited government because everyone they know wants maximum freedom and minimum statism.
Grover Norquist
When minimum living wages, bargaining for fair wages, pensions, and job security are denied in too many countries, it is not rocket science to understand the drivers of inequality.
Sharan Burrow
No evidence compels the conclusion that the minimum required intake of any vitamin comes close to the optimum intake that sustains good health.
Linus Pauling
No family gets rich from earning the minimum wage. In fact, the current minimum wage does not even lift a family out of poverty.
Jon Corzine
President Obama believes that income inequality is one of the most pressing matters facing the nation. If we are going to be a country that provides ladders of opportunity and believes in a thriving middle class, then we have to raise the minimum wage.
Tom Perez
Home Depot has never hired one human being for minimum wage, not one. We have always paid a premium over minimum wage.
Kenneth Langone
I have the mindset of a mid-level guy or a minimum guy. My path here wasn’t expected: my path wasn’t that I was going to the NBA and making $16 million a year. So I identify more with those guys, and I want to be a voice for them. I want to help them elevate their status in the league. That’s my goal.
Draymond Green
I feel the need of attaining the maximum of intensity with the minimum of means. It is this which has led me to give my painting a character of even greater bareness.
Joan Miro
I try to keep the theatrics to a minimum and let the music do the talking.
Billy Squier
The concept of minimum wage is crazy, if you really stop to think about it. If $8 an hour seems right, why not $20 an hour? If it’s coming by order of the government, why stop at any level? Why not just say everyone should get what Gates gets?
Malcolm Wallop
The people who support Mr. Curbelo’s campaign are people who oppose Medicare and Social Security, want to reform it to take it away from our seniors, and oppose a minimum wage.
Joe Garcia
The term ‘psychological thriller’ is an elastic one these days, tagged liberally on to any story of suspense that explores motivations while keeping blood and chainsaws to a minimum.
Susie Dent
