Thanks for the comments from out of state. Good to have people checking this out from Pomona! (My home town) and from Las Vegas. Very nice.
So I think if we all got a dollar raise - $40 a week gross - each working person would have between $35 on the high end, and $13 on the low end, to spend. And a majority of people would spend it. This would create income tax, sales tax, and new spending. Likely it would get us more than much of the unstimulating package. Some things like Universal Health Care and full employment are a way off, but we gotta try.
