Did you . . . . did anyone, know . . . . our legislators, here in Oregon, had tied the minimum wage to inflation?
I didn’t, but then, I could be behind on some of the news; ya see, I don’t take the local rag . . . er . . . newspaper – we call it the Red Guard, it’s so liberal!
What incredible wisdom – tieing it to inflation . . . . er . . . rather lack thereof, . . . of wisdom, I mean! Yes; in case you didn’t recognize it, that’s sarcasm!
Anyone who doubted that minimum wage was what was at the root of the cause of unskilled workers being laid off work (therefore, more cost to the state – er . . . taxpayers) will soon, have to realize and admit it!
How brilliant! Why didn’t conservatives think of this a long time ago? What better way to prove a point?!?! This should have been done years ago! Sometimes, those of us who don’t understand how the world works, need to learn by example!
Now that Oregon leads the nation in the unemployment rate – 12.1%, and capitalism here, is dying even faster than before, (Eugene is known to be very anti-business) how long do you think it’ll take, for them to figure it out ? ? ? (Other than Peurto Rico, the only states near us are California w/ 11.2%, and N.C. and R.I. Facts are from the Bureau of Labor and Statistics for March 2009 – don’t bother with CNN’s facts – they have no reason to tell us . . . .)
Whaddya mean, our legislature flunkies won’t figure it out? What? Are you calling them STUPID?
Ah . . . . crap! . . . ya know, . . . . ya just might be right there . . . . good thing we have all that bailout money coming . . . . whoever gave it to the government, . . . . we sure owe them a big “THANK YOU”! We’ll all be OK soon, now . . . .
Whaddya mean it was us that gave it to us? Are you stupid too?
