I watched the video above and grappled before I could believe it. People who just got their salaries bumped by the minimum wage hike in Seattle, WA are now gripping because higher wages kick them off of the dole. Kshama Sawant didn’t see that one coming. But then again, why not?
What do the Kshama Sawants of the world encourage people to do? The video below gives us a bit of a hint.
Yes indeed. Seattle’s best only work to supplement their dole. If they get paid too well, income ceilings on HUD programs and other such nuisances kick in. They have to work less hard if they want someone else to make both of their ends meet. Barack Obama must be so proud. This is exactly the America he has been working so hard to create.
