Some conservatives and/or libertarians mock liberals.... And, I must admit I have done the same on occasion. Nevertheless, in many cases, I believe that their intentions are good ... they either are ignorant as to the underlying factors or too idealistic about human nature.

If you think forcing employers to spend X dollars more than necessary to employ labor for entry-level jobs will stimulate the economy. If you believe this, you must think the workers receiving the extra dollars will put the money to more stimulative uses than their employers would have. If so, why not a minimum wage of $50.50 rather than the $10.10? Because this might discourage hiring? What makes you sure you know the threshold where job destruction begins?
