Your state government [has a Minimum Wage], doesn't it?
Yes. It is currently $12/hr.  (except for tipped employees)

Some municipalities have a $15/hr Minimum Wage

Sunnyvale has a Minimum wage of $15.65/hr!   (that's the highest I could find)
  

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

My state doesn't have a mandated minimum wage.

Is there a way I can help you get rid of your state's minimum wage?

I wish there were.

California is the most progressive state in the nation, and we have the most powerful State government in the nation.

We tried to split up the state to de-centralize the uber-powerful government, and we got the necessary signatures to put it on the ballot last November.

But the corrupt California Supreme Court yanked it off the ballot because they knew it would weaken the stranglehold Democrats have on the State!

This went unchallenged because the 9th circuit Apellate Court would undoubtedly sustain the ruling.

The once-beautiful cities of Los Angeles and San Francisco are turning into hell-holes because of progressive policy - heavy taxation, crime, homeless encampments, drugs,  feces in the streets, etc...

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?


There's only one goal that I have: To respect rights.

I would like to see the minimum wage ended.
  

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

I'm happy to hear this, but I was shocked and had to think about it...

Does your opposition extend to central economic control in general, or is it limited specifically to wage controls?

I know this is the wrong thread, but, who cares?

Chief, is this always a result of eliminating taxes on incomes?

The bottom line is, only rich people can afford to live in Monaco. The "elites"... And they like it that way.

If I were rich, I'd escape to Monaco or the Bahamas.   These are the happiest people on the planet.

Keeping away from progressive/socialists has a price.   It would be worth it, I think.

I'll let you know when the shells are lifted and I can see which shell the nut was under. I pick that one.

Probably it's easier to be happy if you're rich, but don't be surprised if you discover that Monaco and the Bahamas are full of rich progressives.

You did notice they have "social welfare" programs, right?

It's a straightforward question lizard:

"Does your opposition extend to central economic control in general, or is it limited specifically to wage controls?"
