"He suggested that regardless of whether a $15 minimum wage is mandated through legislation, wages will rise on the strength of the economy." - Restaurant Dive
We've paid more than the federal min. wage for years. What's he talking about?
It's a political thing. He has no idea what goes on in the stores..
Have you ever wondered why very few Hawaiians are working when you visit those islands? All but a few States on the following list are strongholds ---so go figure!The Cato Institute released an updated 2016 study showing that welfare benefits pay more than a minimum wage job in 33 American states, and the District of Columbia.Even worse, welfare pays more than $15 per hour to stay home in 13 states.According to the study, welfare benefits have increased faster than minimum wage. It's now more profitable to sit at home and watch TV than it is to earn an honest day's pay.Hawaii is the biggest offender, where welfare recipients earn $29.13per hour, or a $60,590 yearly salary for doing nothing.Here is the list of the states where the pre-tax equivalent "salary" that welfare recipients receive is higher than having a job:1. Hawaii : $60,5902. District of Columbia :$50,820 l3. Massachusetts : $50,5404. Connecticut : $44,3705. New York : $43,7006. New Jersey : $43,4507. Rhode Island : $43,3308. Vermont : $42,3509. New Hampshire:39,75010. Maryland : $38,16011. California : $37,16012 Oregon : $34,30013. Wyoming : $32,62014. Nevada : $29,82015. Minnesota : $29,35016. Delaware : $29,22017. Washington : $28,84018. North Dakota : $28,83019. Pennsylvania : $28,67020. New Mexico : $27,90021. Montana : $26,93022. South Dakota : $26,61023. Kansas: $26,49024. Michigan : $26,43025. Alaska : $26,40026. Ohio : $26,20027. North Carolina : $25,76028. West Virginia : $24,90029. Alabama : $23,31030 Indiana : $22,90031. Missouri : $22,80032. Oklahoma : $22,48033. Louisiana : $22,25034. South Carolina : $21,910Hawaii, DC , and Massachusetts pay more in welfare than the average wage folks earn there.Is it any wonder that they stay home rather than look for a job.Time for a drastic change... Americans are not stupid.Note that California is $18.50 an hour. Are we Nuts or what? How do we un-do this type of stupidityNow if you think that's bad, read about these salaries:Salary of retired United States Presidents $180,000 FOR LIFE. Salary of House/Senate...$174,000 FOR LIFE.This is beyond stupid!Salary of Speaker of the House ..$223,500 FOR LIFE! This is really stupid.Salary of Majority/Minority Leader $193,400 FOR LIFE! Ditto last line.Average Salary of a teacher ... $40,065 Average Salary of Soldier DEPLOYED IN AFGHANISTAN.. $38,000 Think about this!Nancy Pelosi will retire as a Congress Person at $174,000 Dollars a year for LIFE.She will retire as SPEAKER at $223,500 a year Plus she will receive an additional $193,400 a year for when she was Minority Leader, the fact that she has become rich while in office notwithstanding. That's $803,700 Dollars a year for LIFE including FREE medical which is not available to us.... the taxpayers. She is just one of the hundreds of Senators and Congresspersons that float in and out of Congress every year!I think we found where the cuts should be made!AND, can you imagine paying “A.O.C.” these sums for life.
Once Politicians are elected they do everything they can to keep that power and get re-elected as they do only have to serve I believe it is five years to receive full benefits but there are certain age restrictions such 50 years old and 62 etc. So yes AOC will be doing everything she can, make every promise she can to big labor and unions so she can get their money and endorsements for re-election.One good thing Nancy P probably won't be with us much longer, she's 81 and the average US Woman's life expectancy is 79. So at this time, it's all about power and control for her.
Sadly representatives and Senators only need to serve one term to get full life time pensions and health care.
