Of course he voted no. Raising the minimum wage would end life as we know it in east TN. Every single business in the area would be impacted and half of them would probably go under.
I mean imagine how you would feel if the company that you have been working for five years, at 25 cents above minimum wage, had to pay its new employees more than they were paying you.
Heck he was probably pressured by the Greeneville Partnership to keep wages low, so as not to let the natives to get too far ahead. We have to keep our grunt labor downtrodden around here.

Are you people actually stupid enough to want the minimum wage raised? OK, I will give a short class on trickle down economics.
1. Minimum rage is raised 5 percent.
2. Companies must raise price of goods produced to pay a 5 percent wage increase for employees.
3. Logistics (big trucks and or trains) raise the cost of shipping 10 percent to cover the wage and commodities increase.
4. The person that received the 5 percent wage increase is now paying 10 percent more for goods.

This concludes the basic economic class for all you retarded Democratic liberals!
