AOC: $15 Minimum Wage
a ‘Deep, Deep Compromise,’
Should Be $24

Original Article

Posted By: Ida Lou Pino, 3/2/2021 10:02:34 AM

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Monday criticized certain Democrats for failing to support progressive demands for a $15 minimum wage, contending they are living in a “dystopian capitalist nightmare” and adding that the minimum wage should actually be $24 an hour. The New York lawmaker defended the progressive push for a $15 minimum wage during an appearance on The Mehdi Hasan Show.


Actually - - the minimum wage shoud be $6,417 per hour. Thay way - - a person wotking 35 hours per week would earn $224,595. Just think of that - - $224,595 per week - - every week! We'll all be RICH!

I am not surprised that AOC is arithmetically challenged. $24 per hour works out to $48,480 per year which is only a bit less than the roughly $60,000 which is the AVERAGE salary in the US.

$24/hour for the Walmart greeter? $24/hour for the counter clerk at McDonalds? Welcome to $10 hamburgers and lots of unemployment. How about we base Congressional salaries on IQ? AOC would owe us money. . .

I am old enough to remember when minimum wage went from $1.65/hour to $2.00, and I thought of all the cool things I would be able to buy; unfortunately, all the cool things went up in price, and I was no better off than I had been before.

Somebody check AOC's stock portfolio. I am 100% confident you will find lots of stocks in companies that make robots (that do so many tasks that were previously done by minimum wage workers), self-serve kiosks (like you are seeing in more and more fast food restaurants in place of those former minimum wage employees), and self-checkout registers (that have taken the jobs of so many former minimum wage grocery store workers). A $24 minimum wage would probably put 3 - 4 times as many workers out of their jobs and on to the welfare plantation -- just the place the Demon-Rats like the peasants!!!

There should be no federal minimum wage. The States should each set their own minimum wage. Almost nobody but teenagers working part time and illegal aliens working “under the table” earn the current federal minimum wage anyway.

The Seattle City Council is ordering hazard pay of an extra $4 an hour to grocery store employees. Kroger has already closed two stores. They were paying the clerks $20 an hour plus full benefits. The employees are now making hazard pay of $0 an hour and no benefits. Frankly, I don't know how a city council can set what a company pays their employees. BTW...Poster #11, I've always thought AOC looks like Donkey from the movie Shrek, especially when her mouth is open. The resemblance is startling.

That creature graduated with an economics degree from a major university? She should know that there's an infinite supply of low-skilled laborers and a finite number of employers who would wish to pay them $24 per hour. If you have to pay someone $24 per hour plus benefits to clean the toilets and empty the trash in your office, you will save the money and do those tasks yourself. Kids who can get part-time jobs today will be able to sit at home and play video games because no one will employ a 16-year-old for the same money that the employer can get experienced help. Liberals ruin everything.

This has very little to do with those minimum wage workers, millions of whom will promptly be let go, when management determines that their wages vastly exceed their value to the company. No, I think it is mostly about the enrichment of workers (union particularly, but others) whose wage is a multiple of the Minimum Wage. I.E.---hey! if some entry level part-timer gets that, I must be worth WAY more. Plus, a high percent of these same higher wage earners can NOT be let go, without cause, if at all. BINGO! This hike is essential.

How did she get to be the House spokesperson ? Not one person sitting on Capitol Hill cares one iota that millions of disabled and elderly collect less than $1000 a month in benefits. So, what is in it for her ? A pimpled faced teen (living with their parents and doesn't need benefits) bagging groceries on their first job should not be able to earn $15 an hour. Someone who can't comprehend or speak English it shouldn't earn $15 an hour.

The vote was the closest of any of President Joe Biden’s Cabinet nominees so far due to near unanimous Republican objections, citing Becerra’s stance on abortion and alleging that his only health care experience came from suing to protect the Affordable Care Act.

The White House is bracing for a worsening situation at the U.S.-Mexico border as President Biden faces criticism from both political parties over the influx of migrant children. Biden's No. 1 priority remains the coronavirus pandemic. But the flow of asylum-seekers threatens to overwhelm the country's immigration system after it was overhauled by former President Donald Trump in ways that irritated Democrats. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was dispatched this week to brief reporters at the White House, repeatedly blaming Trump's administration for the country's immigration predicament and warning it would "take time" to undo its "cruelty."

University staff have argued that the current curriculum focuses on 'white European music from the slave period', according to The Telegraph.(Snip) It claimed that teaching musical notation had 'not shaken off its connection to its colonial past' and would be 'a slap in the face' to some students.

It has been more than two months since Kamala Harris was sworn in as vice president of the United States, a historic moment for the country, as Harris is the first woman and the first woman of color to hold the second highest office in the land. Yet, Harris -- along with her husband, Georgetown Law professor Douglas Emhoff -- is still, ostensibly, living out of suitcases, unable to move into the private residence reserved for the vice president because it's still undergoing renovations.
