KissTheSky saidMore Republican lies to support their policies that harm working people.
Republican politicians want to do away with minimum wages altogether. Their reasoning: If a billionaire wants to pay you $1.00/hour, he should be able to. After all, how is he supposed to afford his third yacht and his 9th vacation home?
The GOP is the party for making wages even lower, and making the working poor even worse off.
Another reason to vote every last one of them out of office.
Their other nefarious tactic is to union bust as some kind of infringement on "personal liberty." What liberty? The liberty to work for 2 dollars an hour (minimum wage), suffer injuries on the job (OSHA), and get fired simply because you're gay, or black, or female (Title VII/local LGBT protections)?
Yeah, some liberty. If you can't afford to pay your workers, close up shop. Let the market correct itself. Trust me, another company will take over market share, expand, and post "help wanted" signs paying a REAL living wage.
