Council Wants Kansas City Minimum Wage But Won't Really Do Anything To Make It Happen

Legislative tap dancing and fun declarations at 12th & Oak today . . . Non-binding of course:

KC Council urges higher local minimum wage

The Kansas City Council approved a resolution Thursday calling on city government and local businesses to voluntarily implement a higher minimum wage than the state-set minimum. The resolution follows a local election Aug. 8 in which 69 percent of Kansas City voters supported a petition initiative to raise the city's minimum wage to $10 an hour by Aug.

LOL, so don't makes us force you because we can't force yo to raise the minimum wage rate but if you all want to commit business suicide then you go right ahead and do so but remember we didn't say you had to.

Oh the is some priceless leadership there.

Sure is easy to give out raises with our tax dollars. Just to bring current part time city employees (21) up to $10, let alone $15, will cost an estimated $6500 per year. Yet, they are OK asking a small business owner to take that out of their pocket.

Why not one cent per hour. I think that would make you very happy.
