Redneck’s last words: “Hey y’all, watch this!”

Swiss to vote for $50,000 annual minimum wage. I’ve always wondered why the Dollar Bill’s of this world stopped short at ten bucks an hour when pressing for an increased minimum wage. If $10 made people wealthier, it would seem that $150,000 would make them positively rich! Switzerland isn’t going that far, yet, but $50,000 is a good start. I hope DB and his pals are watching.

    Hmm, let me see now? Salaried workers that I now have to pay twice what they’re worth; what do I do? I know, I fire half of them, and force the remainders to work twice as long, no overtime — they are salaried. Anyone who doesn’t like it can take a hike because the guys who just got fired have obligations and would probably like their job back. Redneck motto: F**k with me and I’ll f**k you back.

    Everyone will be in a union, and you can’t fire union people. Gotcha.

    Many, many 1000s of government and nonprofit workers in NY, NJ, CA, DC, etc are paid >$100K/yr despite dubious skills or productivity in providing any useful services to taxpayer (unless affirmative action’s value to society is in easing racial/wealth guilt)

    Government “jobs” are a far more costly form of welfare than food stamps, public housing, mass transit, Medicaid, etc
