Democrats' Immoral Approach to Minimum Wage

Thank God Obama and the Democrats' attempt to raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 per hour stalled in the Senate. 

Raising the minimum wage destroys jobs.  Democrats pushing for a higher minimum wage has nothing to do with improving peoples' lives and everything to do with playing two cards, class envy and fairness, from their deck of hate inspiring cards to win votes.

How much can Mr Joe American grocery store owner afford to pay an unskilled worker just entering the work force? When government pulls an amount out of the air that it believes is a fair hourly wage and forces it on business owners, business owners are forced to make real world economic decisions.

So, rather than Mr Joe American grocery store owner hiring 5 kids for the summer to stack boxes and gather shopping carts in the parking lot, he only hires two kids or none and gathers the carts himself. Traditionally, as one's knowledge, skills and value to a business increases, so does their pay.

Liberals argue that a family can not survive on minimum wage. News flash, a family is not suppose to survive on minimum wage.

My pet peeve with liberal's and Democrats' vision for America is that they always appeal to our lower nature. They gin-up hatred for people who have more than you. As a matter of fact, you have too little because others have too much. Therefore, it is only fair that we empower government to take their stuff and redistribute it to you.

Democrats and liberals say, hey, you want to kill your baby in the final month before birth, no problem. Shame on hateful Republicans and conservatives for trying to change your mind.

Democrats say do not be a sucker like those immigrants who follow the process, assimilate and become U.S. Citizens legally. Just sneak across our borders and we will roll out the red carpet for you.

In their tradition of lowered expectations and standards of behavior, Democrats are not concerned with encouraging employees to better themselves to increase their value to the business beyond minimum wage pay. Instead, with main stream media support, Dems sell the message that employers are mean greedy SOBs. Dems vow to force them to pay employees more money simply for showing up. After all, it is only fair.

Do you see the pattern? Democrats and liberals always encourage a lower behavioral standard and gin-up class envy, division and hate.

Democrats have the audacity to frame the minimum wage as a moral issue. I submit that the Democrats' approach to minimum wage is immoral; totally based on a “gimme” mindset without giving a hoot about the employer or the business.

Remember the biblical tale of the talents (money)? Before leaving on a business trip, a master gave various amounts of money to three servants to invest. To one servant he gave 5 talents. The second he gave 2 and to the third he gave one talent. Both servants with 5 and 2 talents invested their master's money, made a profit and were rewarded. The third servant who chose to remain at “minimum wage level”, buried his master's money for safe keeping, earning nothing for his master. The master was extremely angry with him.

As a proud conservative, I wish to offer a powerful proven truth to young people entering the work force. Reject the Democrats' low-rent manipulative you're-a-victim class envy rhetoric regarding the minimum wage. You are so much better than who the Democrats think you are.

When you apply at Mr Joe American's grocery store for a job, tell him you want to help make his store the most popular in town. Yes, I realize that may sound corny today. But, it works.

When you come to the business with an attitude of how can I be a blessing to Mr. Joe, you get blessed, promoted and paid. Perform on a level that there is a noticeable void when you are not there.

Several years ago, I worked in the art department of a TV station; a crew of six artists. Whenever our boss was unavailable, young Jeff voluntarily stepped up to deal with whatever. When Jeff was first to be promoted, jealous fellow artists murmured. They accused Jeff of being a butt kisser. The reality was Jeff earned his promotion; the difference between winners and whiny entitlement minded losers.

The secret to success is bringing an attitude of “how can I be a blessing” to every situation. Successful people provide or create goods and services that people want and or need. I am not suggesting that you will never encounter an abusive unappreciative boss. I am saying that bringing an attitude of how can I assist my employer to increase his bottom line and make his day a little easier will ultimately reap an employee great rewards.

Have you ever heard liberals and Democrats speak of giving to ones employer? I think not.

As is the case in most of what they advocate, the Democrats and liberals mantra is you're-a-victim and you're entitled. Now, gimme!

Seriously  ???  No one is going to point out that eliminating income tax and the IRS is much more beneficial than increasing the Minimum wage laws.   How  about we keep it simple.   Give every one their pay check with NO FEDERAL deductions.  No IRS, no need to keep records of what you make.  A cost savings for every one.  There's a raise for every one and a huge benefit to the country. Cut spending and pass the FarTax. H.R 25 and S 122.  I've written and spoken to my Congress man, have you?

As Michael Savage has stated for decades . . . "Liberalism is a Mental Disorder".

The Left, at least those of the Wacko Left, suffer from a mental disease called Cognitive Dissonance, which can be described as believing in something that's not couched in Reality.

This dissonance, over decades and compounded by constant kool-aide overdoses, compliments of their lame-stream-media, seems to cause a physical change in their brain and how, when and why various synapses fire.

Evidence is building, that this malady can be genetically passed on to their off-spring and, if not, many Public Schools will soon be based on a re-education camp model, if Rotten-to-the-Core is adopted in your State.

Mr Joe American grocery store owner is not going to hire anyone because he can not afford to and if he does it will be illegal at below minimum wage.  This way he can try to keep his overhead down if he does not need to pay all of the taxes that go along in hiring someone to work he is that much ahead.  The illegals do not pay taxes or worry about the cost of Medical, Food because the government (us you & me) take care of them.  Housing if they do not get reduced rent through the government then you will find 10 to 15 or more living in the same house!  This makes the Democrats very happy.  They will tell you no American wanted to work for Mr Joe American grocery store owner and the illegals are just doing the jobs American's do not want to do! A little funny I heard of a farm in Colorado that ICE raided and 15 workers were just told do not come back because we will arrest you.  The story hit the news media the next day they had over 200 people wanting those jobs.I can not say how many were Americans but I will bet it was a good percentages.  The same thing happen when they raided the Swift Food plants.  They were over whelmed with people wanting those jobs. But the Democrats keep playing the same old song.  "They (Illegals are only taking jobs Americans do not want"!

They never make any sense, yet enough people believe them and keep the same old flakes in power.

I can't figure it out.  The Democrats want to raise minumum wage, yet, the Dems and  Chamber of Commerce want the immigrants to help corporate with cheaper labor, then if that is so are they going to pay the millions of  illegal immigrants less?  Then an article came out today that organiztion of Manufacturers in the US can supply 600,000 jobs for skilled immigrants.  Why not train Americans if necessary?  Americans first.

The Federal Government operates at a loss which has been greatly amplified by the current inhabitants of our White House.

They seem to think that Private Enterprise can operate on the same model.

Only very few White House occupants have ever held a real job; i.e., where a product or service of value must be produced in order to stay in business and provide employment for citizen who want to work to better their lives.

Mr. Curtin . . . 100% correct!  When the draft ended (1973), it was the beginning of he end for our Republic.

There is two points of this push and they are for more taxes and the companies that close and lay off that more people will be relying on government. Like I said so many times that there are very few people in government that have any common sense. By the way there were dems that stopped this push for minimum wage increase, otherwise it would have passed as they hold the majority.

It pleases their union supporters.  It puts more people out of work and dependent, which they like.  It gets them votes which they love.  In the end it hurts more than it helps and it encourages under the table work.  It also makes a market for sweat shops and slavery.
