Obama’s economy is tanking. Hardworking, legal residents of the US are being taxed more than ever before in history. Corporations are making more sacrifices than ever—Walmart is even being forced to sell fake anti-capitalist prints by anarchist graffiti outlaw Banksy, just to get by. And not one, but two Walmarts in Ohio have been forced to take matters into their own hands, by going above and beyond with a food drive for their employees. All this grief and strife, with real working people trimming the fat to scrape by.
And now this is happening: today, fast food workers across the country will put the sickle to the hammer in a nationwide strike. From FastFoodForward.org:
We can’t survive on $7.25!
In America, people who work hard should be able to afford basic necessities like groceries, rent, childcare and transportation.
While fast food corporations reap the benefits of record profits, workers are barely getting by — many are forced to be on public assistance despite having a job.
Raising pay for fast food workers will benefit workers and strengthen the overall economy.
You read that right, folks. Not only are fast food workers unable to take care of themselves and each other, but now they’re demanding over twice as much pay for the same unskilled, freshman job. While making taxpayers pay their way in life.
Let’s be clear about something here: there’s not a whole lot of jobs out there, thanks to the Obama economy. But, that’s the thing about liberals—responsibility just ain’t their thang, baby.
Anyone who chooses to take a job is liable for the responsibilities they and their employer agreed to when entering into an employment contract. This includes the agreement of the employee to be paid at the behest of the employer, and what kind of benefits will come with the job.
If I went out and financed a Blu-Ray player, do I get to come back a week later and demand a reduction in my payments? Heck no, and anyone who suggests such a thing does not understand the free market.
You don’t get to make the rules, bub. You’re lucky to be getting payed at all for doing something a machine could do. And if the Big Labor thugs get their way, that’s exactly what’s going to happen.
Think about it for a minute. Why $15 an hour? Why not make it $30? Can I get $50?
So you basically want to be paid $30k a year for this unskilled job. Okay. Then we’ll just replace you with a machine that costs $10k a year to maintain. Don’t think it’ll happen? Think again. That’s capitalism, honey, and we should all be proud of it.
Here’s the thing, unskilled workers of America: there’s no such thing as a “living wage.” What does that even mean? How did Big Labor come up with that number? How much do we need to live? Why not let the market decide?
None of these questions will be answered by Big Labor, whose ultimate goal is to ensure that there will be no jobs for tomorrow’s willing workers. By raising the federal minimum wage, businesses will be forced under, jobs will shrivel up, and automatons and outsourcing will be a forced, but necessary, last resort for job creators.
The last thing we need right now as a country is to give handouts to a bunch of layabouts who can’t even be bothered to join the real world and get a better paying job. And a higher federal minimum wage is exactly the kind of thing the Obama voters spray the carpet over—putting more money into the pockets of low-information, minority voters is practically a giveaway to Democratic fundraisers.
If we want to stimulate the economy, we need to be thinking about the engines of that economy, and that engine is not composed of poor, barely hygienic liberals. That engine is composed of the job-creating wealth machines we like to call corporations. And while that may not be the hip thing to say right now, as Big Leftie Media and the Mainstream Culture Death Machine pillory the right to employer wage choice, it is the right thing to say.
Put plainly, a “living wage” is the wages of death. Rather than enforcing a “living wage,” we need to free job creators by abolishing wages altogether. I don’t just mean abandonment of the minimum wage. Let’s not be wishy-washy about this; that’s the liberal ethos. Let’s go full-bore, and shed the market of its fetters. Abolish the wage.
Because when liberalism is on the prowl, an inch is a mile, and I ain’t giving ’em any more of my space.
