MANDATORY KANSAS CITY $10 MINIMUM WAGE FOR ALL BIZ HIRED BY CITY HALL?!?

An opportunity for the denizens of 12th & Oak to live up to their advocacy or at least show themselves to be hypocrites. The reality is that this is probably an IMPORTANT LEGISLATIVE MEASURE that will provide a proving ground for fair wage fighters. You decide:

Ordinance would require businesses hired by Kansas City to comply with $10/hr minimum wage

As long as it leads to replacing hoodrats with kiosks that provide better customer service and no attitude.

This sounds nice for people, however, it can NOT be enforced as law!

Business should boom for illegals sitting outside the home depots.

Nothing more than Kathryn Shields running form Mayor. Seriously, do you think utility or construction workers are making less $10 an hour. Do you think any company who agrees to a contract with a city is paying their employees less than $10? Why, because none of those companies are employing 16-20 year olds with no experience. Bullshit symbolism.

Companies doing business with the city are usually controlled by political insiders and the contracts are generous. I doubt they would have a problem paying above market wages.

Great idea. Person making $8 an hour has to pay 1% e-tax so city hall can pay people $10 an hour. Genius!

"$10,000.00 to get the word out..."(per channel 5 report)
That money is a total slush headed directly to someones pocket.
The word is already out on the contract that any City contracted employer must sign before fulfilling deeds of contract.
This City is so crooked, I can't wait to get out of it.
Just as soon as I finish this $7.70 per hour last contract.
I can't make any money paying $10.00 per hour and the Mayor won't put me on his fav list for kickbacks. Bastard!

Just another way for the city to reach into YOUR pockets and give YOUR money to some lazy ass dreg who absolutely refuses to lift a finger to acquire any valid job skills. So it is back to boon logic. Why work when you can piss and moan to teh local libtards and get it for free. No sense in accomplishing or motivating in a system like that. Exactly how we got where we are.

^^^Idiot. Wrong on so many levels. Exactly where are we dweeb? Look, judging from your post, it's obvious you hate your life. Don't think for a second that everyone shares your worthless opinion.

"Why, because none of those companies are employing 16-20 year olds with no experience. "

It is a common misconception that minimum wage earners are just kids picking up some movie money. Many -- if not most -- are adults, often trying to support a family on more than one job. Some of them are employed by contractors with the City.

Katheryn Shields has been a consistent supporter of raising the minimum wage to provide a living wage -- and a strong supporter of unions -- since I met her at age 19. That was long before she ever ran for public office. As Jackson County Executive, she insisted on raising the wages of County workers to competitive levels (as well as instituting a merit-based system). She is neither hypocrite nor political opportunist. Just willing to do the right thing.

I agree with 12:14 Obama and their libtard thinking created a hand out society where people get money for doing nothing. All the Dem's want is your vote.

The real racists are in the democrat party no question about that.
