Minimum wage was NEVER intended to be a so-called living wage. Let’s start with that basic fact. The intent of the minimum wage was ALWAYS to prevent exploitation of the least of our society: teenagers (it is a FACT that most minimum wage earners are between the ages of 16-24, most often full time students working part time jobs and living with their parents), newly arrived [legal] immigrants, seniors seeking to supplement their retirement income or a parent who works part time to supplement family income. In fact, studies have shown that the average family income of minimum wage earners is OVER $60,000.00.

But in their never-ending promulgation of class-warfare in this country the Democratic Party is attempting to paint opposition to this extremely foolish Issue 2 and others like it in other states as some kind of war on poor people.

Let’s get one thing straight. If you are poor, the Democratic Party is not your friend. They may attempt to present themselves as such but the reality is that there are considerably MORE BILLIONAIRES IN THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY than in the Republican Party. And unlike the Democrats, Republicans understand that the best government for any working man or woman is the government that keeps its big fat nose out of the employer-employee relationship as much as possible. And a raise in the minimum wage will mean that the people who most often employ the minimum wage earner will be less able to employ as many minimum wage earners as they do now.

Democrats are at it again – smoke and mirrors and trying to convince people who normally have a great deal of common sense (that would be you and me) that what they think and believe isn’t nearly as good for them as the airy fairy pie-in-the-sky nonsense being pumped out in DNC talking points.

VOTE NOVEMBER 7th and VOTE REPUBLICAN! Let’s shock the socks off of them!
