Liberals Claim to Stand for Higher Minimum Wage But This Picture COMPLETELY Blows Their Cover!


Aside from the fact that liberals struggle mightily to understand concepts of cause and effect when it comes to raising the minimum wage to $15/hr – mainly that doing so will cause companies to make less profit, and affect their employees by reducing hours or eliminating jobs – they are noted hypocrites when it comes to their own demands.

Such is the case of Working Families, an organization dedicated to ‘fighting’ for ‘fair wages.’ They stand up for a $15/hr wage, but don’t necessarily want to pay that rate.

Observe the hypocrisy (H/T Save Jersey):


Via Save Jersey:

No, that’s not a joke or a photo-shopped image. Yes, that is a real screenshot of a real discussion (on Facebook) that I had with a real Democrat/Union-backed organization about the state of the job market for a paid promoter of the #15NOW movement.

Let that sink in for a moment… I’ll wait.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I think that at best it is ironic that a person should be asked to accept “less than a livable wage” to talk publicly about how terrible that wage is.

At worst, it is a glaring example of hypocrisy and holier-than-thou obstructionism (with the added bonus of union compression wage hikes).

If anything less than $15 per hour is unlivable and amounts to being paid ‘poverty wages,’ why is a liberal organization like this paying their new employees less?
