President Obama has finally shown his true colors and is raising the minimum wage of federal contractors to a disgustingly high $10.10/hour. Reports indicate that the re-distributor-in-chief will enacting the policy via executive order, making sure workers could keep a family with an entire childjust above the federal poverty threshold, instead of family of none (the current minimum wage is $7.25/hour – enough to keep 1 person from starving).
For further proof of Obama’s insidious intentions, Bernie Sanders, the Senates only bonafide socialist, had the following to say about Obama’s proposed hike:
“I applaud President Obama for issuing this executive order which will raise wages for hundreds of thousands of low-wage workers. The president has made it clear that employees working for government contractors should not be paid starvation wages. This executive order also gives us momentum for raising the minimum wage for every worker in this country to at least $10.10 an hour.”
With Obama having paved the way for Sharia law in America, we will soon be living in a Caliphate where workers pray 5 times a day and make more than their CEOs. Speaking of which, CEO pay has only increased by a miniscule 725% over the past 30 years, 127 times faster than worker pay over the same time period of time.
