Everybody has their price.
We have this local sandwich/coffee shop where the owners are tried and true Liberal Democrats. Maine has been under Democrat ‘leadership’ in all 3 branches of govt for 30 years. We’re consistently in the top 5 for highest tax burden, worst state economy (2nd only to Louisiana only because they had Katrina), and worst place to do business.
Anyway, the State has introduced a bill to raise minimum wage to $9.50. Even these folks are cringing. Why? Because now THEIR bottom line is being affected.
Serves them right, I hope it passes.
Also, if someone wants to volunteer and McDonald’s for 4 bucks an hour, so be it.[/quote]
But they couldn’t do that. It’s illegal. That’s the whole point.
