SHOCK!!! KANSAS CITY FAIR WAGE FIGHT UNDER FIRE AS STL MINIMUM WAGE INCREASE SHOT DOWN UNDER GUV GREITENS WATCH!!!



The new Guv didn't sign it but he didn't stop it . . . And now STL workers who mistakenly believed they won a victory are ultimately disappointed again.

To wit . . .

LIKE IT OR NOT THE STL MINIMUM WAGE INCREASE SMACKDOWN IS A POLITICAL WARNING SHOT FOR KANSAS CITY!!!

Technically, the issue is up for a vote on Aug. 8th but this fight has already been decided and the GOP hegemony in Jeff City has no mercy for workers attempting raise their standard of living by way of legislation . . . Which was how the minimum wage was created in the first place . . . Because if corporations could get away with paying people pennies a day, they would . . . Just as one of the Chinese toddlers who make some of the finest goods sold in American box stores.

We're not talking about $15 an hour. Just 10.

And the truth is that corporations don't want it raised at all.

It's not capitalism, it's theft. Anybody paying a $7.70 wage deserves nothing in return for it. It's an insult, not an opportunity.

^^^ Typical 1st world entitlement liberal snowflake mentality.

A job is a job.

An opportunity is what you make of it. Nobody owes you anything and if you can find better work, take it.

Why should the government have to to play the role of your career councilor?

The minimum wage effort in KC is dead in the water, the state is not going to allow it. Sorry.

"attempting to raise their standard of living by legislation." Atta-go, dutch bag: Far be it from those slugs to raise their standard of living by finishing school, sticking with a job long enough to rise up the ranks, and succeed through self-reliance. Make the government do it for 'em. You're fucking priceless.

^^^^ Hey shit bird. How do you think we got the minimum wage to begin with. Without unions, you'd be stuck shoveling shit for pennies. You should be thankful that we live in a great country that doesn't allow exploitation like some Mexican 3rd world hell hole.

I guess Missouri has learned nothing from watching the idiot next door in Kansas. How much failure do you need to see to understand those economic policies don't work? Yet this douchebag wants to emulate Kansas. And the laws he's wanting to pass regarding birth control and such are beyond insane.

I'm all for raising the minimum wage as long as it doesn't apply to Mexicans. I would say negroes as well but they don't work

And 9:20 sums up the typical liberal thought process.

If you have time to whine, bitch and protest you have time to get your lazy ass into a job training program to qualify for a job that pays $15.00. To not have a pot to piss in, no skills and then demand a handout from the man who gives you a job is ridiculous as long as you have the life in you to gains the skills that will get you the pay you want. If you want to be paid like a computer tech then become a computer tech. Making a bed, flipping a burger or sacking groceries does not require a fucking associates degree and an employer nor the public should be required to pay you like you have one. It is your ass that needs to do something not everyone else..

Greitens will be a one term governor--he's too extreme, too mean. Owned by the Kochs and the NRA--bad for Missouri.

Correct and why? Not to benefit the majority of hard working citizens. These liberal pricks want to take your money and promote their agenda - which seems to have little to do with having any fiduciary responsibility. Problem is the ol' dumb fuck, numb nuts, peckerwoods will sit on their asses and let these libtards run the show while scratching their butts trying to figure out what happened.
