Tom Harkin is a moron
Craven democrat Tom Harkin has introduced a senate bill that would raise the federal minimum wage to $9.80 in two years.
The very existence of a minimum wage in the first place is sheer economic lunacy. As you can see in this graph, millions of jobs will be lost if they pass this. But then that's the idea for democrats...to get as many people on the government unemployment dole as possible.
How miserable and incompetent of a stinking employee do you have to be to still be making minimum wage after 6 months on the job? If you can't impress your boss enough after 6 months to earn a raise, then he should probably fire you and hire somebody who's worth a damn.
Here are the 4 indicators of staying far above poverty in America even if you are temporarily in a minimum wage job: finish high school, stay off drugs, get married and stay married, do not have kids you cannot afford. But I guess that's too much to ask of an entitled generation that idolizes Jersey Shore and the Kardashians, and got a trophy for graduating 5-K.
