In the progressive war against the poor, progressives win when they’re able to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour across the country because it sounds like they care!
After all, the national hourly wage for an entry-level trained paralegal is $14.45 per hour.
A dental assistant is $13.64 per hour.
And a paramedic is $15.70 per hour.
Progressives make a great argument that too many Americans believe: why shouldn’t Americans start at the same wage?
But what liberals do not tell unskilled Americans who try to reach for the bottom rung of the socio-economic ladder is that minimum wage laws keep them from even reaching that bottom rung. And blacks suffer the most.
This week, the city of Seattle released a study after they increased the minimum wage. They discovered that 5,000 jobs for unskilled employees were LOST! And employers were forced to reduce the hours of employees, forcing workers to earn $125 LESS per month! It wasn’t supposed to work like this! But progressives will not stop. Just yesterday, San Francisco implemented a $14 minimum wage.
Plain and simple, progressives don’t want minorities to have jobs. They want Americans dependent on Uncle Sam’s Plantation and to vote for more laws that sound great and keep progressives in power!
Friend, America’s cities set the tone of politics in our country. We will NOT win if we don’t appeal to the hearts AND minds of ALL Americans.
That’s why I started BlackCommunityNews.com. This website sends information about policies from Americans like me, Walter Williams, Ben Carson, and Thomas Sowell to our pastors who read, print, and forward their information to Americans who have never heard our ideas who sit in their pews. My show “CURE America with Star Parker” will also soon be featured on this website.
Right now, I want to create a new section of this website that focuses on news and data about the minimum wage. I want to send this site to our pastors and readers so they can share it with thousands of Americans who believe the lie that a $15 minimum wage actually helps unskilled Americans start a path to prosperity.
