15 Dollars An Hour, Right?

Pretty self explanatory.
While I agree that the minimum wage is way too low, at the same time, someone like myself who has over thirty years of experience in a skilled field can barely top out at twenty in a non union shop in the current market.

You burger flippers come follow me around for a couple days and then we'll talk.

  1. I hope they get it . . . then you can point this crap and say how you certainly need more than 20.

  3. This has always been a real world bad thing about raising the minimum wage. Everyone above that level gets screwed by employers which don't correspondingly raise the rest of us. One of the prime factors that wages for most trades people has been stagnant for the past thirty years !

  5. Between the current min wage and $15/hr there are complete industries that are suddenly going to get screwed out of existence. I can't think of a better recipe to get wide scale unrest and riots across the country. Of course, that's just ripe for the government to clamp down on everything and fix it for us.

    Employers not only "don't correspondingly raise" everyone else's pay; they can't. Where does that money come from? Suddenly every company's costs are going to skyrocket, layoffs will follow, and those people won't be able to buy things or survive on their EBT cards.

    1. Exactly, the problem is not minimum wage, it is the lack of technical jobs which pay more. If there were a shortage of workers, the wage rises.

  6. I do agree with author of a post. Maybe it is a little bit cruel, but it is absolutely reasonable. Guys on photos do not want to work but want to get $15 per hour. It cannot be like that.

Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one, some peoples stink more than others too. Remember, I can make your opinion disappear, you keep the stink.
