$26 minimum wage?

$26 minimum wage?

minimum wage, taylor jones, cagle, May 8, 2014California’s minimum wage rises to $9 an hour from $8 on July 1. Then in 2015, it rises to $10.

That’s still pretty low for this expensive state. So Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., is proposing $26 an hour.

That still seems pretty chintsy. Members of Congress make $174,000 a year. Assuming a 40 hour work week (not including schmoozing at parties, campaigning, calling donors for cash, etc.), that’s $181 an hour.

A local burger flipper adds more to the economy than any member of Congress — especially the “small government” Republicans who keep increasing government.

So let’s boost the minimum wage to $181 an hour.

    Don’t even go there about Poodle’s wages.

    Corn dog dippers who wear beanies and knee cap high patin leather boots are truly scarce in Adelanto!
