You are correct about that! The minimum wage has been a political football for decades. When I was in high school it was 75 cents and I had trouble getting my grocery store job because of it. When I finally landed it, I worked my fanny off to try to justify myself. Today it's viewed as an entitlement. There was no way I expected to be able to support myself on a minimum wage but now, lack of being able to do that is used as a reason to increase it. It's nonsense.


100% agree.

Why would that be a better option ?
If you consider, it isn’t about the benefits, it’s about getting money circulating in the private and public sectors, it isn’t so crazy.
How would you go about creating a thriving economy?
First you need demand for goods and services.
Next you need a way to pay for those goods and services.
Which once there is a demand for goods and services there will also be a demand for employees.
Reagan’s Voodoo economics has only destroyed most of what this country once was.
It didn’t work.
Or in your case , you think supply side economics is just peachy.

Did you think you could sneak your usual crap into this discussion and nobody would challenge you ? Well ?

" Reagan’s Voodoo economics has only destroyed most of what this country once was. "

Make your case, if you think you can.

ARE WE REALLY THIS SCREWED UP?


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.

I don’t wish Nancy or any of them a long life. Especially Maxine and AOC!
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 : $60,590
2. District of Columbia :$50,820 l
3. Massachusetts : $50,540
4. Connecticut : $44,370
5. New York : $43,700
6. New Jersey : $43,450
7. Rhode Island : $43,330
8. Vermont : $42,350
9. New Hampshire:39,750
10. Maryland : $38,160
11. California : $37,160
12 Oregon : $34,300
13. Wyoming : $32,620
14. Nevada : $29,820
15. Minnesota : $29,350
16. Delaware : $29,220
17. Washington : $28,840
18. North Dakota : $28,830
19. Pennsylvania : $28,670
20. New Mexico : $27,900
21. Montana : $26,930
22. South Dakota : $26,610
23. Kansas: $26,490
24. Michigan : $26,430
25. Alaska : $26,400
26. Ohio : $26,200
27. North Carolina : $25,760
28. West Virginia : $24,900
29. Alabama : $23,310
30. Indiana : $22,900
31. Missouri : $22,800
32. Oklahoma : $22,480
33. Louisiana : $22,250
34 South Carolina : $21,910


Hawaii, 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, or are we?


Note that California is $18.50 an hour. Are we Nuts or what? How do we un-do this type of stupidity?

Now 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!

AND, can you imagine paying AOC these sums for life, will we are!
