Nine Bucks an Hour? A Call for a Living Wage at $10.50 or More
By Ralph Nader / February 16, 2013 / http://tinyurl.com/cuskgkt
How could Barack Obama say, in his State of the Union speech,“let’s declare that in the wealthiest nation on earth no one who works full-time should have to live in poverty, and raise the federal minimum wage to $9.00 an hour”?

Back in 2008, Obama campaigned to have a $9.50 per hour minimum wage by 2011. Now he’s settling for $9.00 by 2015! Going backward into the future is the price that poverty groups and labor unions are paying by giving Mr. Obama a free ride last year on this moral imperative. How can leaders of poverty groups and unions accept this back-of-the-hand response to the plight of thirty million workers who make less today than what workers made 45 years ago in 1968, inflation adjusted?

It didn’t matter that the U.S. had the lowest minimum wage of any major western country (Australia is over $15, France over $11, and the province of Ontario in Canada is $10.25 – all of these countries also have health insurance for all).

you libs are remarkable, oblamer forces this situation and you respond with 'could she not pick up ten hours somewhere else', you low life scum need to go hungry, you need to be homeless, but even then your greed and arrogance is so engrained that you wouldn't learn the lesson, but staying home on welfare is acceptable to you, unbelievable just how far you have sunk to get anything you can from the government, baaaaaaaaaa
All it takes is a little hard work. Isn't it republicans who go on and on about how if you work hard you can become one of the 1%??

She just needs to work a little harder and yes.... Pick up 10 more hours somewhere else.

At least she's working and not sucking the government teet like you and the other not so bright Repubs here.

Quit crying and grow a pair.

You're going to make republicans stroke out and die with raising minimum wage.

I think the 10 to 12 hour minimum wage with come with Hillary in 2016 with a New New Deal. Sweeping changes in taxes and unions and such. With Obama and Hillary the country will get closer to back on track.

$15.00 an hour? Take a look at a JOBS posting from Sydney (there are only 8 in the "Labor" category:

now take a look at Houston, Tx (General Labor):

That minimum wage is a dumbass idea, it just another way to artificially inflate a workers value.
A quality worker demands what they are worth, been there done that!

Uncle Tab my friend,

The New, New Deal, should have come after 2008 with the greatest financial meltdown since the Depression.

Obama continued over 90% of all Bush/Cheney policy and passing a Republican Health Care plan with all Democrats voting for it.

Obama had the opportunity to become the next FDR, instead he chose business as usual.

Looks like Hillary Clinton vs Jeb Bush in 2016.

We will all lose again in 2016, while Wall Street and the corporate media laughs all the way to the bank.

They're All Against Jobs
by Sen. Fritz Hollings / December 20, 2009 / http://tinyurl.com/ydr27ze
Who is against jobs in the United States? The big banks, Wall Street, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Business Roundtable, the United States Chamber of Commerce, the National Retail Federation, Corporate America, the President of the United States, Congress of the United States. Everyone is crying for jobs, but no one seems to understand why there aren't any. And the reason for those opposing jobs is money.
Beginning in 1973, big banks made most of their profit outside of the United States. Industries off-shoring, investing, banks financing the investments, transfer fees, fees and interest on the loans made for bigger profits. Long since, the big banks under the leadership of David Rockefeller have led the way to off-shore and make a bigger profit. Goldman Sachs, AIG, Citicorp and Wall Street, conspiring for a bailout and now using it for bonuses, make more money from the off-shored operations.

George W. Obama
January 12th 2010 / http://tinyurl.com/yjyz645
Before President Obama, it was grimly accurate to write, as I often did in the Voice, that George W. Bush came into the presidency with no discernible background in constitutional civil liberties or any acquaintance with the Constitution itself. Accordingly, he turned the "war on terror" over to Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld—ardent believers that the Constitution presents grave obstacles in a time of global jihad.
But now, Bush's successor—who actually taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago—is continuing much of the Bush-Cheney parallel government and, in some cases, is going much further in disregarding our laws and the international treaties we've signed./ http://www.villagevoice.com/2010-01-12/column...

<quoted text>
Please let us in on all these stories about people who were left to die in the streets because they couldn't get medical help because insurance companies turned them down. You can claim all kinds of fairy tales to make your story sound better but when people actually research the facts they find your fairy tales to be silly.
First,Mrs. know it all, I'm no lady! Second please point out what you think is a lie?
My nephew had cancer in every lymph node in his body and spots in his lungs, everywhere but his brain. I lost count of the surgeries it took to remove these "SPOTS" and Chemo is devastating to your body.
I have no reason to lie!
And yes your beloved insurance companies will and have rejected payment for people with pre-existing illness, and in 2014 under the affordable care act, that practice will in.
I never said anything about people dying in the streets, my point was the hopelessness you (well I ) encountered in the treatment centers.
in 94 and 95 my father received chemo for multiple-myeloma, in 2007 and 2008 ,my mother received chemo for lung cancer, then came my nephew his cancer was testicular unfortunately it wasn't detected early enough to keep it from spreading through his body and causing lots of
surgeries and chemo treatment, out of the three he survived.
So please tell me where I lied? And though I have many faults, I'll tell you not that you deserve to know, because with what attitude you've expressed in this forum, you seem to begrudge people the very air they breath.
But I have values which I place in a higher regard perhaps than some others, I detest people that steal, I believe in Loyalty, if i give someone my loyalty I expect it in return, And there's lying of which you have accused me of such on several occasions! I have absolutely nothing to gain nor does it give me any kind of enjoyment to create a falsehood or make up a story especially concerning the health of the people I love dearest. So you are beyond any line reasonable objection in saying I'm a liar! It's simply not true!
I don't know what problem you have with the world, but I'll tell you, everyone that holds a different political view than you, is not mean, lying, lowlife scum, And if you are capable of feeling shame then you should!

and thus the significant difference between conservatives and libotards, standing for principle is not politics - but you libs see it as such, thus, libs despise and even hate conservatives because they stand for something more than killing babies, fagg marriage, confiscation of earnings to subsidize lazy union thugs who sit on the couch and smoke pot, the reason our country is in this situation is because dems have been farming low intellect votes since the early 1960s (by their own admission - not mine), good luck libboy, enjoy the ride, every mathematical model in existence adds up to bubble burst because of gimme gimme gimme,

Let me elaborate on something that seems to worry people a great deal!
When a new President, be it whoever, sits down behind the desk in the oval office, he is handed file of the utmost confidentiality, top secret info!
Now these files are not submitted to anyone under any circumstance, unless the FBI, and CIA, Have throughly
investigated the persons background to the farthest extreme, to make certain beyond any doubt that not one hint or possible of impropriety of the possibility that a National Security Breech could occur,that would devastate this Country.
So after the newly elected president has time to grasp
the knowledge of how things truly are in the world.
All the promises and rainbow wishes made as a candidate are eaten and crow tastes terrible!
Now this president must govern according to reality!
Without seeming like a total fraud!
How is accomplished? I would imagine foreign policy, with the best diplomatic front one can put forward.
Without indicating how we the (U.S.) can most certainly annihilate any country we choose!
The Domestic Policy, Trying as you may to get public support for initiatives that, have popularity in the polls.
Difficult as opposition, often controls one chamber of congress, sometimes two!
So parties banter about ideas, and every once in awhile
a compromise is attained.
And the beat goes on!
PEACE
