I decided to add a second part on this topic, because there were some other things I wanted to add that I didn't in part one that needed to be have been said. It's no secret that progressives need a villain in order justify their shortcomings in life. Taking personal responsibility is not an option.
This is what this whole $15 dollars an hour mess is truly about. It's the underlying issue they don't want to address. The one thing the burger flippers and people who work at low paying jobs never want to talk about is that "they agreed to work for their employers knowing what the job would pay
". The way they try to frame this is almost as if their employers did some sort of bait and switch on them, and they were shocked and angered , when they looked at their first paycheck. Burger flippers and any other employees are known as "at will employee". In other words, they are not slaves. They can end their employment anytime they want with their employer, and the employer has the same right to end the employment of an employee at anytime as well. So with that being said, there is nothing holding back burger flippers from seeking out jobs which pay more money right
? Again with that being said.
1.Why do they chose to accept jobs that are low pay but then later complain about pay they accepted?
2. How is it their employer fault for them choosing to apply for the low paying job in the first place?
3.What is stopping them from going out and finding a job that pays "a living wage"?
They simply chose not to
. People who are making $15 dollars an hour, $20, $50 dollars an hour or more obviously knew what they had to do in the marketplace to get paid their salary
. It wasn't simply handed to them on a silver platter. The progressive malcontents don't want to do what others have done to earn a living wage.
1.Why do you think that skilled and highly skilled people don't work as burger flippers?
2. Why do you think these people will more then likely always have jobs paying them a "living wage"?
Progressives have their logic on this issue all screwed up. Working hard at a dead end job isn't gong to lead to living wage
. The goal should be for them to
"work hard at acquiring the skills necessary so they can be qualified to make a living wage
But I forgot, that requires dedication, sacrifice and hard work. In other words, it's all on the individual
to achieve that. Can't blame the employers, Republicans, conservatives or the Tea Party for their life choices. My favorite talk show hosts is Dave Ramsey. He's a financial consultant and expert on helping people budget money and getting out of debt. He's an insanely down to earth person. He went on an epic rant a few months ago about who he calls "whopper floppers" wanting $15 an hour and why people are paid what they are paid which also includes CEO's and sports athletes. Highly recommend watching!
