Career Fields of Opportunity?
Our business leaders spend two million dollars on a birthday party for the CEO's wife, the President wants to permanently ban any taxes on multimillion dollar estates, and our healthcare workers live at the poverty level. Is that the kind of society we want?
What is even scarier is that this wage level is more than TWICE the minimum wage that the really poor laborers receive. Perhaps we should change the name to 'poverty" wage - except it doesn't even reach that designated level.
We can't raise it because those fast food franchise owners would lose part of their quarter million dollar annual profits (and they are such reliable political contributors)!
