$15 Minimum Wage Not Enough Says Tlaib - US Needs $20 Min. Wage!

"Odd Squad" Rep. Rashida Tlaib called for a Federal Minimum Wage of $20 per hour.

Tlaib's comment came during remarks to the Restaurant Opportunities Center of Michigan and the labor rights group One Fair Wage.

"They say all of this [$20 Minimum Wage] is going to raise the cost, but I can tell you, milk has gone up, eggs have gone up, everything has gone up. The cost of a lot of things that we need has gone up already."

That's right Tlaib.  That's how inflation works.    Get some education in taxes and economics.

Why stop at $20?  How about $30?  Or $40?      Put government in charge of wages, production, and distribution.  Everyone will be equally poor like in Venezuela.

So ignorant!   Angry
  

Governments will always devise ways to deprive an honest man of his money or property, and claim that it's legal.

Heres the thing I live good and always have enough to eat and air condishoning and it is because me and my mom are on assistance, we do not work.

I had friends who had parents that worked, they do not always have enough to eat they cant just run the air when their too hot.

how is that OK?

I think i am a good person who cares about people, i should not have more then them but i do. Libertarian will just say oh take it your good but what about the people who work then?

I think the people who work should have as much or more than the people on assistance is that really wrong to you?

It sounds like you're saying welfare is too generous. Smiley

So they get more from the government by not working?

And that's not fair, which is why the minimum wage needs to be raised, so an entry level unskilled worker can make more that a welfare recipient.

I can attest that this has always been true. I always worked, and when I didn't have enough, I'd dumpster dive in welfare neighbourhoods and have yard sales on the weekends. I've mentioned this before. Working people will pay good money for what welfare recipients throw out.

When a new kind of Game Boy came out, I knew I could find the old by the dozens in the welfare neighbourhood dumpsters. The kids of working parents scramble to buy the old ones used, while the kids of welfare parents always have the latest tech.

It's not fair.

But that's fine.

The minimum wage should be eliminated, not raised.

Life doesn't need to be fair.

If the working people aren't making enough, they can use their spare time to clean the welfare recipients' houses.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

I don't want government to dictate how much I pay my employees.

I want to pay them what I think they're worth to my business.

If they think what I pay them is not enough, they are free to work for someone who will pay them more.

That's pretty simple, I think.     Free Market.    Keep government out of hiring practices.

But, then they will make more, and be taxed more, to pay the welfare recipients more...

I don't see it ending well.

That's your goal, right?
