Once again my fellow American friends, neighbors, brothers and sisters, we have been handed the short stick on this absolute insane minimum wage that has been spewed around for the several last years. Don’t get me wrong, I am not for minimum wage hikes at all. We wrote articles on the fact that it couldn’t be true, that sooner or later they will need to get to slave labor levels in order to make this economy work. It was still a mystery, we didn’t have any idea they would do what they did, but one thing learned real quick after 2008 is the fact that you will get hit with anti middle class and anti American surprises day in and day out.
Here we are still with people arguing that the minimum wage is too low and we have several bills out to make that minimum wage $15.00 an hour. In fact we have had several restaurants close down in areas where the minimum wage has been made into law. Bottom line is if you have minimum wage employees and you have to change that to the 15 per hour, there is a good chance you will close and I think this is their ultimate goal.
This week while i’m driving I hear on the radio that just before the minimum wage approval comes into effect in each state, that the labor unions file an exemption from it. I immediately thought ahhhhhhhh, this is the scam moving forward. I believe that the TPP deal also allows for companies to pay the labor rates from their own countries which can be way below our current very generous minimum wages already set in place for unskilled workers. These exemptions allow the labor unions to not only be exempt from the higher minimum wage, it allows them to be exempt from the current minimum wages as well.
In essence it’s business as usual with a big screwing to the middle class, the small businesses and the American people as they will be the only ones who must abide by the horrendous minimum wage hikes out there. Yes folks, the fantasy gets better everyday.
Mama’s pizza down the street will have to pay the higher min wage at 15.00 per hour and most likely close down, where a multi national will have the ability to pay wages from its local currency and minimum wages perhaps coming to under $4.00 or less per hour. Truly slave labor is to come.
The labor unions are filing exemptions based on the fact they have the ability to negotiate their own labor contracts but we the American people do not have that ability. I wonder if we too can file these very same exemptions. Just when you though the last treaty was bad enough, it gets sicker folks. America is turning into a side show with fake rioting and fake protesting at every corner.
