If we're going to raise minimum wage by $2/hr, we need to determine the rate of income the average, able-bodied homeless person generates via bottle deposits, and increase the deposit amount proportionately.

Think of the economic impact!  Bush's debts will finally be erased and we'll be back on track to prosperity!

wildcardjack: At least you have deposit redemption to work with. Here in Texas there are people fishing for the cans for weight value and it's about 30 cans to the pound.
