And from mchalesarmy pg #4:
Most unions pay scales are DIRECTLY tied to the national minimum wage.
Make no mistake. When the minimum wage is increased, the "minimum wage" in nearly every union also increases.
Furthermore, and which is why if you dig deep enough you'll find that EVERY attempt to raise the minimum wage is HEAVILY supported by Unions, UNLIKE the real world, where after two years Timmy and Tommy are now making the same wage again, unions will increase EVERY members pay, precisely to avoid the Tommy/Timmy issue.
Now put your thinking cap on and ask yourself "why the overwhelming support for a hike in minimum wage from unions who make far more than minimum wage"?
AND THERE YOU GO: This is not a crisis or even a debate. It is politics meant to buy votes. When you can't win in the arena of ideas…..spend other peoples money.
