minimum wage


Newsflash: America has a homeless problem. Actually, many are calling it a crisis or an epidemic. No matter which superlative one cares to use, I think we can all agree it’s a large problem, and each year liberals are in charge of government, the numbers of homeless increase. Every major city in the country has seen a …

I remember my first minimum wage job came with the whopping pay rate of around $3.35 an hour. At the time, that actually seemed like some decent money to a high schooler, and after a lot of hard work, I got my first raise of 25 cents an hour. It wasn’t a lot, but it …

There’s a liberal meme gong around that list the cost of college in a number of countries. It’s been put together by Occupy Democrats. Occupy Democrats was founded in 2012 as an advocacy group created to counterbalance the Republican tea party, and to “give President Obama and other progressive (liberal) Democrats a Congress that will …

One of the many rallying cries of liberal Democrats is the need to raise the minimum wage from $7.25 per hour to $15.00 per hours. On the surface it sounds great. After all, who wouldn’t like a 107% increase in pay? I know I would, wouldn’t you? Many conservatives have warned the liberals that raising …

Ever since labor unions came on the scene well over a century ago, they have fought for higher wages, more benefits and better working conditions. For many years, they were very successful in helping millions of Americans to better support and provide for their families. However, like many other good things, unions have become more …

Barack Obama and many other liberals have been advocating raising the federal minimum wage to $15/hour. They claim that raising the minimum wage that high would help millions of Americans to make enough money to better support their families. What they fail to mention that raising the minimum wage to $15/hour would also raise the …

Lawmakers believe they can create economic opportunity and prosperity by law. If they really believe this, then why not pass a law that says that everybody should get paid $40.00 per hour? If $15.00 is good, the $30.00 should be better. Many companies live on thin profit margins. They are usually sole proprietorships with few employees. …

The minimum wage controversy has been in the news a lot in the past year as liberals are calling for it to be more than doubled. But who really has the right to establish minimum wages, the states or the federal government? The Tenth Amendment to the US Constitution reads: “The powers not delegated to …

Once again liberals have demonstrated that they just don’t get how the economy works. They are so utterly ignorant. When purchasing an item, do you ever comparison shop? Of course you do. Most everyone has or does. And you want to get the most for your dollar. Again, of course — otherwise, why comparison shop? …

Fast food workers across the United States went on strike to protest minimum wage pay. They want their salaries doubled to $15 per hour — twice the federal minimum wage rate. If the $15-wage-rate goes into effect, business will drop off and layoffs will take place. Some of the people who went on strike will …

In the movie “Blazing Saddles,” there’s a great scene where the sheriff, to save himself from a town full of gun-wielding bigots, pulls out his gun and points it at his own head, using two different voices to convince the townsfolk to drop their weapons or “I’ll blow this n—–‘s head all over this town!” …

Crazy leftists want Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren to run for president in 2016. She’s described as a “liberal superstar.” Many are dumping Hillary for Warren. It could be the battle of the sexless in 2016. What were the people of Massachusetts thinking? She’s not only a plague on Massachusetts, but she’s a plague on the …
