In typical fashion, President Barack Obama’s, in the State of the Union address, reached out to his supporters with the idea of raising the minimum wage to $9. Democrats were supposedly caught off guard with this one. As well they should be. While this idea pretends to help the country, in reality it will hurt the country and the very people Obama pretends to help.
While Obama is out and about, traveling the country, predetermining legislation by promoting this idea, businesses are speaking out against this plan. On his inflation creating promotional tour, Obama points out, ‘19 states and the District of Columbia already have minimum wages set above the federal rate of $7.25, creating a vast wage disparity across the country.'
What’s good for Texas, may not be good for Louisiana.
Most important here is a simple fact,. this administration’s word is worthless. After four years of supposedly returning the country back to it’s greatness, the country has only gave way to high unemployment, inflationary prices on every corner and continued claims that everything is just fine.
If Obama’s educated populace were indeed educated and not walking around showcasing a piece of paper that claims they are educated, they would realize with ease, raising the minimum wage during this economy would be devastating.
One would have factor in taxes associated with Obama care, which have employers completely doing away with full time employment and embarking upon the concept of only part time employment. When you add this additional cost of an increasing minimum wage to the scenario, part time employment will become unemployment for more than a few and that’s just common sense.
Obama claims, "because if you work full time, you shouldn't be in poverty." While that may be true, it’s as such, only on the surface. Poverty in this country has always been around, but with this administration, policies have greatly improved the chances for poverty and that’s goes to the deep core of this administration’s concept of greatness, which has only created, or added to their support base by attacking businesses and Republicans.
One only need to look back to 2007 and the effects of raising the minimum wage in American Samoa, which still haven’t recovered from House Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi’s political correctness.
