I've heard it all
I’ve heard it all. “If you raise the minimum wage you won’t help people to get out of poverty” according to a republican congressman. If they weren’t paid so little they might be able to get out of poverty. It doesn’t take much smarts I agree to flip a burger but I wouldn’t want a disgruntled employee doing things to the customer’s food. The congress gave itself 31,000 dollar raises over the past ten years. Inflation is at an all time high but that doesn’t find its way into the little people pockets. Seems inflation is a way of keeping people poor. Sure you get wages but it never keep up with inflation compared to the ratio of the extremely rich. The rich don’t gave to do anything but there worth more in time while a person work by the hours works until he dies.
