Response to xchrom (Original post)

310. Christ, who let the Heritage/Cato stooges in?

Fucking ridiculous. Get them the hell off of our board.

Minimum wage has gone down in value and in buying power . . .



. . . we're seriously lagging behind other countries on this issue . . .



. . . real wages have flatlined since 1979 . . . .



. . . while CEOs made out like bandits and continue to raze this country to death . . .



. . . and the "differing point of view" we're now supposed to accept and embrace is fetid rhetoric from a bad Stephen Moore book? We're now the site that promotes "bootstrapper" bullshit?

How about this . . . please stop worrying about what a fast-food worker should or shouldn't be making and maybe . . . just MAYBE . . . . . ask YOURSELF why you aren't making more also. ALL of us should be getting paid better. It's disgusting that degreed professionals only make 12 to 14 dollars an hour.

But maybe the fast food workers just might DESERVE that 12 to 14 an hour, because they seem to be the only ones standing up and saying anything about their ridiculously low pay. It's not like any of our comfy asses are million-person-marching to DC or conducting sit-ins in corporate boardrooms like we SHOULD be doing.
