    The business owners used to pay decently not because they were good people but because they needed American workers to be able to make purchases. Now that we have a global market, this is no longer true and they are able to concentrate on pure profit.
    .
    That is one of the main reasons we had tariffs before the fatcats realized that, through “Free Trade,” they could eliminate any motivation for treating workers fairly. Of course, it began by exporting jobs to third world countries, but it also included a “let them eat cake” attitude here, where fast food companies and discount stores can get government assistance in the form of welfare to subsidize their lousy pay.

    Democrats are good at many other things, but not at math.

    The actual democrat’s scary goal is to have everyone dependent on the federal government from cradle to grave.

    Democrats are a lot better at math (and all science) than Republicans these days, the major reason why scientists and academics are fleeing the GOP. Have you checked out Kansas lately? Turns out if you cut taxes you get less revenue. Who knew? If only someone had told Brownback that math is real! He thought it was a liberal hoax.

    Agriculture used to employ close to half the population not is is a couple of percent. People then found jobs in manufacturing which employed nearly half the population. Manufacturing has become highly productive by restructuring, robots and computers. Soon a small percentage of the population will be able to produce all of the needed good and services. Now we have to figure out how to deal with the fall out.

    “The actual democrat’s scary goal is to have everyone dependent on the federal government from cradle to grave.”

    How right you are. Every democrat I know wants everyone to be paid—and very well— not to work. They don’t know where the money will come from, and they just don’t care. Government will provide the answers.

    You say that like you’ve discovered some secret. Everybody knows; as a matter of fact, the local democratic party has just adopted an official slogan: “There’s a government fund for that.” I’m sure it will garner many more votes from dead people, and the illegal immigrant children will also vote (several times each) for the democrats. Republicans are toast. Get used to it: I have.

    (Disclaimer: some of the words above have been used to show sarcasm. Extra credit for those who can pick them out.)

    What the Donkey is not telling you is that as soon as this wage hike is implemented, and everyone has become as rich as Bill Gates, the IRS will be tasked with increasing the tax rate up to 100%!

    Their ultimate goal is a world full of destitute third-world citizens, desperate for any sort of work- no matter how dangerous or humiliating- to put a meal on the table. Then they can inflate the economy of one nation or another, all the while skimming “their fair share” off the top until there’s nothing left to exploit, while lobbyist-guided governments stand back (with a little greasing of their palms as well) and say “the free market must decide”.

    I would respect Democratic arguments for raising the minimum wage more if they addressed the point raised in this cartoon.

    We need a law to guarantee everyone an above-average wage…/s

    THAT is the democratic ideal! I’m surprised they haven’t passed that one already.
