RE: SICK PROFESSION

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
99% of those who make minimum wage are high school kids.

This is one of those silly, vapid issues akin to hand-wringing about women
needing abortions for reasons of health when such abortions make up about
one-half of one percent of all abortions.

The Federal minimum wage laws are patently unconstitutional and have been
shown to be an economic DETRIMENT to "poor workers," rather than a help,
because they assure a limit on hiring on the part of employers.

Bill:

What I wonder is how does someone who is paid
minimum wage (which is essentially below poverty, as I understand things)
really have "life"...
