This is the Socialist dialogue in America today: "I am uneducated, unmotivated and a mindless consumer. I don't produce anything but sewer effluents, carbon monoxide and parent-less children. The Boy Messiah says that he'll give me a free cellphone and high wages if I get off my fat ass to pick up the phone and the paycheck. He's my man!"<quoted text>
Everyone who begins as a trainee gets a minimum wage. If someone is still relying on minimum wage after being in the workforce for a short period of time, that's all they are worth - if that.
Why should employers be forced to pay more for the same worthless employee?
This is just another Marxist idea from the Democrats to spread the wealth around to people who do nothing to earn it.
how about we get rid of the minimum wage entirely? That would motivate people to become worth something in the economy.
A person is paid according to their worth. If you want to be paid more, make the choices that will increase your worth.
Alternatively, you can choose to be poor. The choice is yours. The money is out there for you if you just make the choices to earn it.
