raise the wage1

Let’s go to war and NOT raise taxes to pay for it.
Then in a year or two, Republicans can pass legislation cutting food stamps, planned Parenthood, Medicare, Medicaid, low income housing and say these are the cause of our raising debt.

‘If you worked a full-time job at $10 an hour all year long with two weeks off, you would make approximately $20,000. This should tell you something about the quality of the jobs that our economy is producing at this point’.

Business War On The Poor – ‘Portland businesses organize to fight $15 minimum wage’

raise the wage14

raise the wage15

It makes sense that business wouldn’t want to pay their employees more.

After all……the owner of the business ‘built that’, not the employees…….

PORTLAND, Maine — ‘A nonpartisan group of business owners has started raising money to defeat a local referendum that would raise the city’s minimum wage to $15 per hour by 2019′.

‘Chris Hall, CEO of the Portland Regional Chamber of Commerce, said the group mobilized partly in response to polling in late August showing popular support for Question 1’.

“And most [referenda] stay ahead unless they are opposed,” Hall said after a news conference Wednesday morning outside of Becky’s Diner on Commercial Street’.

‘The poll, by the Maine People’s Resource Center, showed 48.2 percent of likely voters supported the $15 minimum, which would take effect in 2017 for large employers and 2019 for small employers. About 39.7 percent were opposed with a possibly decisive 12.1 percent of voters undecided’.

Raise The Wage –

Day 16

‘The internet is a mighty tool’.

‘Occasionally, you come across a person’s perspective on an issue that is so spot on you just have to share it’.

‘A paramedic from New York who earns $15/hr. shared his views on New York’s decision to make the minimum wage for fast food workers $15/hr. and it most certainly spot on’.

‘Originally posted to Facebook, Jens Rushing wrote a response to all of those complaining about the raise that fast workers will be receiving’.

‘The post eventually made its way to Imgur. Above is what Rushing said’.

Being Poor In America – ‘Wealth Inequality in America’


A re post but well worth the 6 minutes if you want to really understand inequality.



Republicans 2016 – ‘Jeb Bush Wants To Fight Inequality But Also Eliminate The Minimum Wage’

The myth that it’s only teenagers and high school drop outs that get paid minimum wage.

‘At an event in South Carolina on Tuesday, Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush was asked whether he thinks the country should raise the minimum wage or whether the wage should be left up to private companies’.

We need to leave it to the private sector,” he responded. “I think state minimum wages are fine. The federal government shouldn’t be doing this.” He went on, “The federal government doing this will make it harder and harder for the first rung of the ladder to be reached, particularly for young people, particularly for people that have less education.”

raise taxes on the rich

Don’t be against the rich….be FOR the middle class.

That should be the will and the work of Congress.

‘America continues to move to the left as President Obama’s proposal to increase capital gains taxes on the wealthy was supported by a 56%-14% margin in a new AP/GfK poll’.

‘The poll found’:


‘According to the poll, 68 percent of those questioned said wealthy households pay too little in federal taxes; only 11 percent said the wealthy pay too much’.

‘Also, 60 percent said middle-class households pay too much in federal taxes while 7 percent said they paid too little’.

How Republicans Will Govern – ‘Jindal in Iowa: ‘Time to turn back to God’

“The reality is I’m here today because I genuinely, sincerely, passionately believe that America’s in desperate need of a spiritual revival,” Jindal said’.

Of course we could also try creating jobs by building and rebuilding our roads, bridges. We could try raising the minimum wage.

But let’s try your idea and put up a big tent and sing songs and pray whilke we eat oatmeal and mac and cheese…….

‘Some Iowa religious conservative leaders said Tuesday night that they’d never thought of Bobby Jindal as a faith-driven politician — the Louisiana governor is better known as an Ivy League-educated, policy-driven idea generator, they said’.

‘While Jindal’s seeming shift to a more Jesus-focused form of politics might cool enthusiasm for some business-minded Republicans, he was well received by a crowd of about 110 Christian and Jewish leaders at an invitation-only, closed-press event Tuesday night in Des Moines’.
