A sermon from the wadded panties of Reverend JR "Lou" Dobbs,
on how workers who refuse to improve their productivity enough to merit a pay raise got shafted.
Here's a scenario for you, Reverend Dobbs:
You employ two workers and can only budget $20 an hour combined for the two of them.
One is a diligent worker and is easily worth the $13 an hour you give him.
The other struggles to be worth even half of the $7 an hour you pay him.
Suddenly, the government steps in and declares a minimum wage of $9 an hour. You, as the employer must either close the business or, in order to give the unproductive worker a $2.00 an hour raise, cut the productive worker's pay $2.00 an hour to stay afloat.
Who's getting stiffed in that scenario?
