Workers should be paid what they are worth. To many people in those low paying jobs are not even worth what they are being paid now.

Obama ignores his own family and then puts them on welfare, even though they are both here illegally.

You should pay people who earn a certain amount. Most of those entry level people have to be trained from the beginning. They used to be for High Schools students. Now they are for illegals too stupid to find the bathrooms by themselves.

If the government enforced immigration laws and DEPORTED people who broke our immigration laws, there would be LESS PEOPLE available to push that broom and flip that burger.

A job NATURALLY commands more money when there aren't dozens of people waiting in line FOR that job.

Obama should first CLEAN UP THE COUNTRY of border jumpers and THEN and only THEN, come to us about any need to increase the minimum wage.

Obama should leave the arrests, and deportation of illegal aliens to the states. I am sure the border states would be the first to clean up their borders.

Interesting because Obama has no real identity. He is half-white, which he rejects. The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides but is disclosed by his non-African Arabic surname and his Arabic first and middle names as a way to triply proclaim his Arabic parentage to people in Kenya . Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo grandmother, which he pretends he is exclusively.

What he isn't, not a genetic drop of, is 'African-American,' the descendant of enslaved Africans brought to America chained in slave ships. He hasn't a single ancestor who was a slave. Instead, his Arab ancestors were slave owners. Slave-trading was the main Arab business in East Africa for centuries until the British ended it.

So, He must help the 'poor'.

Obama stood on the shore of Lake Michigan and fed the loafers fishes.

In his wake he left the Israeli occupation forced of e rham and co welcome to the occupied west bank, of lake Michigan,a city run by into the ground by Democrats and other scumbags

Actually he is almost as popular as Obama whose poll numbers are dropping like rocks. Once you are a proven liar your word is never any good. Obama cannot overcome his lying past.
