Debunking The Republican Lies – Of Course There’s No Republican War On The Poor – ‘Governor Bans Minimum Wage Increases And Paid Sick Leave Laws’

 

minimum wage7

I can understand the right for someone to vote against raising the minimum wage…….but BANNING cities from passing higher wages?

BANNING cities from enacting PAID SICK days?

BANNING cities from VACATION REQUIREMENTS?

BANNING????

Did she BAN Corporations from giving out bonuses?

Did she BAN corporations from enacting sick day?

Did she BAN corporations from giving vacations?

  • No.

Just BANNING the middle class…….

‘At a time when many states and cities are working passing minimum wage increases, Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R) has gone in the opposite direction and signed a law banning cities from passing higher wages. The bill also bans them from enacting paid sick days or vacation requirements’.

(Bloggers Note : I live in Washington State where we have the highest minimum wage in the Nation. The legislation was passed in 1998 and the minimum wage raises with inflation. Strangely NOT ONE of the things Governor Fallin says will happen – has happened in Washington State – in 15 years……)

 

‘Fallin said she signed the bill out of the worry that higher local minimum wages’

  • “Would drive businesses to other communities and states’,
  • ‘And would raise prices for consumers.”
  • ‘She also argued that “most minimum wage workers are young, single people’
  • ‘Working part-time or entry level jobs”
  • ‘And that “many are high school or college students living with their parents in middle-class families.”

‘She warned that increasing the minimum wage “would require businesses to fire many of those part-time workers” and harm job creation’.
