Skip to comments.Cuomo shuts down de Blasio’s minimum wage plan (Socialist schooled on constitution)
Posted on 02/11/2014 3:33:45 PM PST by Libloather
One day after Mayor de Blasio suggested New York City be allowed to set its own minimum wage, Gov. Cuomo shot down the idea as economically damaging to the entire state.
Cuomo told a radio interviewer that having municipalities set their own, competing wage rates would create a chaotic situation and negatively cannibalize New York.
The mayor needs Albanys approval to increase the minimum wage, now set at $8 an hour.

Andrew should call Hussein.
Im in favor in something called the constitution of the State of New York. Cuomo said.
Unless it applies to gun ownership apparently.
“..Gov. Cuomo shot down the idea as economically damaging to the entire state.”
Yes. I wonder if the residents of NYC are learning something about what they did in the voting booth? Probably not. This is interesting.
So, the gov-hole thinks that localities will be competing for workers by offering higher minimun wages, but as people move towards the higher wage areas, business will move the other way. These people are truly clueless.
New York city voters deserve whatever happens to them.
This is who Ted Cruz will be running against in ‘16.

Favoring “the constitution of the State of New York” is not the same as favoring the Constitution of the United States of America.
>>New York city voters deserve whatever happens to them.<<
The worse the better.
Let diblasio make it another detroit.
Agreed, Barry Goldwater said it would be best if we sawed New York city off from the rest of the country and let it float out to sea. Obviously we can’t literally do this. The next best thing would be if this screwball Mayor could do to the big cesspool what Coleman Young did to Detroit. It’s influence on the rest of us would go way down.
Two commies arguing over spoils.
I completely don’t get Cuomo’s position. Why shouldn’t one city be able to compete with another on tax rates or minimum wage? Oh well, not my concern.
Bill of rights is incorporated against the states, he has to apply and obey/observe the bill of rights as well.

Only kicking and screaming if they are liberals...
Or smacked upside the head with a battleship sized cluebyfour.
I stole it from somewhere else, and they stole it from someone else.
So it’s a cycle!
