$15 an Minimum Wage Hike?

So when in our sordid little world did flipping burgers become a career? Probably since when people stopped having ambitions I. Life to be better than they are now which coincides to the lack of innovation in this country and a piss poor public education system that churns out drones rather than innovators. Why is it that minimum wage earners feel they are more entitled to more pay while the rest of us have to live on less than what they are asking fondue to pay freezes? I went to college for my profession, graphic design at $10.75 an hour that includes a pay freeze AND furloughs, so why should a minimum wage worker make more than me? Minimum wage is around for a reason:

a). With workers being paid cheaply it also means cheaper goods for the consumer. Once you raise the wages of an employee, especially to $15 that means higher priced goods which in turn means less customers and then that means layoffs of employees

b). It’s a way to spurn an individual to achieve a better quality of life by thinking to themselves, ” Wow this job sucks, I can do better!” And thus pushing them to do elevate themselves out of a crappy job.

But people these days have been raised, with the help of government propaganda, to believe they are entitled to the fruits unearned by them. What they have no understanding of is simple economics and what a $15 wage will mean in the long run. If they had an inkling of economics they wouldn’t be asking for such a wage. Of course, you will have the race card bearers saying that anyone against this wage hike is racist. On the contrary it’s actually racist to assume that a majority of minimum wage earners are mostly minority. Minimum wage jobs aren’t just populated by minorities but by whites as well. So remember that when you speak against minimum wage hikes that you are dealing with veiled racists who will project their racism on you.

Such extreme wage hikes will spell doom for more workers rather than save them from the so-called capitalist doom that socialists try to fill their heads with. With today’s technology it’s possible to cut out human labor and replace it with automation. All you have to do is go look in your nearest grocery and see the self checkout aisle where automation has become a staple. This is the future of the overpaid, low skilled worker that the socialists want: automation.
