Show-Me The Losing Fair Wage Fight

Think piece worth checking proposes that a minimum wage crackdown is part of a Conservative sneak attack against workers while everybody else is talking TrumpCare. Checkit:

Republicans in several states are lowering the minimum wage - yes, you read that right

While journalists and political junkies are focused on the latest implosion of the GOP effort to repeal Obamacare and gut Medicaid, conservatives in several states have been working to decrease the minimum wage that businesses can pay to their workers. In Missouri, Republicans just passed a law overturning a local measure passed by the city of St.

Imagine that. Politicians who actually believe your should EARN your wages rather than mooch them. Boy I bet that concept is just fucking incomprehensible to the libtard pick pockets.

Legally It's been $7.70, the dummocrats illegally raised it and broke the law.

If you have a job that you go to every day and work at then you have already earned more than 770 an hour the fact that 770 is the minimum wage is sad. Like I said if you're showing up and working any job you're worth more than 770 an hour so stick it up your greedy tight assholes you fucking criminal Republicans, Republican criminals. Same thing

If your over 23 and still working for minimum wage it is sad. Because you did something in your life where you can only get a job that a middle school drop out can do. It's sad because you didn't value your education, hard work and you don't have the want to to better your situation in life. It's sad because more likely you had run in's with the law or got a girl your not married to pregnant. So suck it up your greedy assholes, you fucking criminal Democrats, Democrat criminals, Communist Democrats. Same thing.

I was actually not speaking for myself, me being not a self-centered all about me type guy I care about people and I do think it is Despicable the minimum wage that is paid to people, totally unacceptable. I on the other hand do not make no money I do quite well for myself and my family. Fact is you can smear lipstick all over a turd but you can't hide the fact that you're Republican. From one you still look like a turd with lipstick on and you smell like a turd just like a republican does. Everyone's catching on dude your time is limited. Enjoy the next few years because then you're Audi 5000 bitches

It takes the same energy to make $90.00 AN HOUR AS IT DOES TO MAKE 9.00,AN HOUR. ASK J.B.NUTTER.

Retro ROCKER said...

I'm sorry you can't ask him. But you can ask me .If you are not making enough money go find a better opportunity. And A company is only as good as its products or services. Or The PRESIDENT OR OWNERS.

Retro rocker I'm not quite sure who you are addressing. Maybe none of my business but you're obviously addressing someone so I figured I'd just ask, so here goes. Who in the hell are you talking to? Thank you in advance. Something tells me your wheels are really spinning but they're spending in the wrong direction. That is why I asked this question of you, whom are you speaking to?

Retro ROCKER said...

I'm speaking to any questions one that would like to better themselves or would Like more earnings and don't want to rely on Government Hand out Because there employer will not pay a living wage.

Retro ROCKER said...

You probably are a employer that don't pay a living wage. If you can't you should not be in business. I'm sure you're employees are struggling.

Retro ROCKER said...

Employees are free agents,they can go out and find better opportunities. There are many Internet millionaire's That Have there own enterprises with few if any employees.

Retro ROCKER said...

Hay it's common sense if you think you are worth more then find you A better opportunity. And that keeps the economy going when people have more money to spend. They can live the American Dream. Not Be one paycheck from disaster. A study came out last week 30,000 Johnson COUNTY KS. ARE ONE PAYCHECK FROM DISASTER. YOU TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS AND STAY OUT OF DEBT. AND YOUR LIVES WILL BE LESS STRESSFUL.

Dude you are hopelessly misunderstanding me. Listen to the words that I am typing out read them and listen and think about them. I don't fit the criteria of person that you should be preaching to. I don't give a damn about anything you're preaching about.to me ,you have proven yourself to be full of shit. at first I thought you weren't but as with so many people, the longer they talk the bigger hole they dig for themselves and that's what you did. Now like I said, hopefully someone who needs advice doesn't take yours, because as far as I can tell you're just a fucking windbag and I wouldn't recommend that anyone take advice from you and so,in short, shut the fuck up,won't you please. If you don't want to do that, at least change the person who you are addressing. Good day sir

Retro ROCKER said...

4:59 If everyone settled for minimum wage there will be no Economy. Most intelligent people have taken that advice, they are not working for minimum wage. THEY ARE VACATIONING in the Gulf of Mexico.

I don't know if it's been fun but it's been something else with you I tell you that much I don't believe you're from the United States you're from a different country for sure maybe a whole different universe. This whole minimum wage thing you keep talking about I don't make minimum wage mister. Can you understand that? Do you have the capability of understanding that? I'm sorry for your troubles now I asked you politely to please address your comments and questions to someone who gives a flying fuck because I'm not the one okay. Now you go have yourself a good day sir

11:49 You are exactly what is wrong with America. By God when it is your money, your company, your benefits, your fortitude, your sacrifice that builds and owns the company you can spend your money any way you wish and declare what a job ought to pay. Until you work and build your little pot to piss in you are not in a position to tell anyone what the jobs in his/her business ought to be paying. Don't like it; Then get an education, work until you are in charge and show us all how it is done. Until then you not only don't have a pot, but you don't have the power.

No matter what the dumb ass libtards told you life has downs with the ups. You don't learn to beat those odds pissing and moaning about what your minimum wage should be. Motivate and make damn sure you never work for minimum wage again. If that is too much of a challenge you are just taking up good air 'cause no one gave a free pass to the folks making the good bucks.

^^^ well suck me sideways, would you. You must be the most ignorant son-of-a-bitch I've heard talk all fucking day long and I've been talking to ignorance sumbitches all fucking day long, so that makes you one ignorant son of a bitch. Do you understand what I'm saying?

You Trump loving fucking moron assuming shit get you nowhere in life except made to look stupid as fuk just like your president. I hope you learned a lesson from this dude, the lesson being you're sitting here lecturing me on how I don't have a pot to piss in and that you think I make minimum wage, when in reality you have no fucking clue the kind of money I make minimum wage, are you fucking kidding me 35 years ago maybe dude and that only lasted about a month I own my own business asshat I employed 12 people you're around no am I je Dunn no but I do have a successful business that I own and that I run and I do have 12 families who depend on me and they get paid a hell of a lot better minimum wage even just starting out the fact of the matter is you goddamn idiot you couldn't cut it one day in my world. You would be the one guy who would make be paid minimum wage and then I'd still have to let you go. Go research some shit get an ID on shit before you comment. I swear to God that fucking dope has been scrotus for 4 or 5 months and he's emboldening already stupid fucking idiots to make bigger asses out of themselves just like he does. Just somebody smack you in the fucking head with a two before really hard? you involved in industrial accident? Car accident? Stroke? Do you have seizures?
