TKC MUST READ!!! COUNCIL SEEKS TO UPHOLD KANSAS CITY MINIMUM WAGE HIKE AMID MISSOURI LEGISLATIVE PUSH BACK!!!



The bill to block at $10-Minimum wage spike in STL is on it's way to the Governor and this effort WILL impact Kansas City's very similar legislation.

With respect to the free market . . .

THE $7.70 MISSOURI MINIMUM WAGE IS A TRAGIC JOKE AND NEEDS TO BE RAISED!!!

How much is open to debate . . . And probably a statewide vote.

In the meantime . . . Here's a quote from the Council Leader on the topic . . .

Councilman Quinton Lucas: The state legislature took another step to reduce the rights of local citizens to make important decisions in their own communities. Kansas City will review the legislation and I will push us to pursue all available legal remedies to uphold our ordinances respecting the rights of our local workers. I continue to believe that enactment of a minimum wage ordinance passed prior to this state legislative action vested rights for workers immediately per ordinance and is lawful notwithstanding today's actions. I encourage Governor Greitens to consider a veto of this legislation that undermines local control in all Missouri communities."

You decide . . .

Given the terrible priorities and poor decisions that the locals in KCMO regularly make, Lucas should be happy that the state legislature doesn't curtail more of their abilities to screw the taxpayers and look out for their friends and campaign contributors.
It's amazing how Sly and the gang constantly make believe they have some ability to control issues like this, which they don't, and continue to ignore their most basic responsibilities like maintaining the streets and curbing the violence that continues to plague KCMO and is even expanding.
Bread and circuses.

$15 an hour just guarantees that there will be robots taking your order at McDonalds. Businesses pay more than minimum wage only when the worker provides more than the average worker provides in the same time period.

If we free the slaves, they will be unemployed?

I was working as a shipping clerk for $4.00 an hour, when the UPS driver told me that I wouldn't be seeing him for a while. He said they were going on strike. I asked him why. He said for higher wages. I said how much do you make now? He said $12 an hour. I said Fuck You, & walked away.

Every credible study establishes clearly that cities forcing higher minimum wages cause businesses to cut jobs. Do the damn math. Second, do we really want to continue regulating and telling employers how to spend their money. There is a free market and time tested factors including skill set, education, supply and demand and education where employment and wages are considered. Figures released just this week show that college graduate starting wages today are higher than they have been in 16 years. Instead of requiring these dregs to get and education and reaping the rewards our politicians want to continue disabling them with these fake hand outs and rewarding then for being non productive in both their lives and society. Perhaps we need to go back to 1776 where you either get off your ass and figure out how to survive or you just don't. Another century of public subsidized breast feeding of those who prefer to be helpless victims is not the answer.

7.70 an hour is good. For teens, the uneducated, felons and special needs people. You know the people who used to work at McDonald's.

How old are you Byron? They're hasn't been a $4 dollar an hour job in decades, jealousy of another person because he makes more than you shows what a cry baby loser you are. Just keep getting those government freebies that us law abiding tax paying citizens are paying for.

I'm sure Byron was paid all he was worth.

You know Byron. You would of made more then $4.00 if you valued education. If you worked hard and ambition. But because you haven't had a job since the Carter administration, we all know you had non of those things. That's why you made $4.00 an hour.

Byron, at $4 per hour, you were way overpaid. Even if that was last week. Retard.
