This soldier has been thru Survival School & learned his lessons well. He’s giving the sign of “coercion” with his left hand. These hand signs are taught in survival school to be used by POW’s as a method of posing messages back to our intelligence services who may view the photo or video. He was obviously being coerced into shaking hands with her. It’s ironic how little she knew that he would so inform us about the photo-perhaps because she’s never understood our military to begin with.

A higher minimum wage means the working class has more money to spend, which means more demand for consumption and therefore more jobs. A higher minimum wage also means fewer people would need to work multiple jobs. Studies have actually shown that in states with a higher minimum wage, there is less unemployment.
Yes, the old broken window fallacy that by forcing an employer to spend more on wages, you’re somehow boosting the economy by giving a handful of people making low wages a raise.
This assumes many things:
- That all the employees will remain hired.
- That all the employees will continue working the same amount of hours.
- That any new employees will be hired.
- That all companies will be able to stay open with such a large cost increase.
- That the higher wage expense will not offset expenditures that were dedicated elsewhere in the business and in turn in the economy.
- That higher wages will not result in higher prices…especially for businesses that can’t absorb the costs. This is essentially artificially moving up the price floor, which means we’ve essentially moved the price scale solving nothing.
- That increases in the small section of low paying jobs magically increases demands in consumption.
- That states with a slightly higher minimum wage actually have that big of an advantage over states with the federally mandated minimum wage. (Those states generally have a +.01-.03% higher minimum wage, while Obama is proposing a +39.31% increase and nutjobs like Elizabeth Warren are proposing an increase of +106.8%.)
- That raising the minimum wage doesn’t negatively affect those unskilled, young workers that hold those positions.
- That you wouldn’t hurt millions of workers who currently work for wages above the proposed increases…especially if prices are raised in response.
If a company is making billions a year they can afford to pay their employees more simple as that!
Yes, and the few companies that do make a billion or more a year, such as Walmart, do pay their employees more than minimum wage. The problem is that an increase in the federal minimum wage affects all companies big and small. Some of these smaller companies don’t have a profit margin like McDonalds or Walmart, and won’t be able to take on the added wage expenses.
Not only does it affect all businesses, but all consumers as well. Wage costs affect the manufacturing, production, transport, support, and even marketing of products and services. We’re not just talking about the fry cooks or cashiers. This would cause a ripple of economic repercussions across all sorts of businesses which in turn are traded back in the cost to the consumer.
This isn’t about a big CEO making millions of dollars while the scrub at the bottom of the chain is slaving over a hot stove. Very few companies in the grand scheme of things have CEOs that make millions let alone a million dollar salary. That’s all progressive propaganda. The majority of corporate executives are good, hard-working individuals that put in a lot of time, work and stress to keep their companies profitable and make sure that those workers on the bottom have the opportunity to earn a paycheck.
