Obama speaks on raising the minimum wage. Live video.
I won’t watch the pyle. Yet will follow this thread.
Who is she talking to today?
Minimum wage? The Emperor has no clothes.
CCSU Students. I want to be clear.
Fiddling while Rome burns
Is he standing on a brightly colored rug?
I wonder if he’ll mention the “folks.”
it’s no fun when TOTUS is present...it’s better to watch his “natural” speech...ah...ah...err...I...ah...I.....my...ahhh
They have zoomed in very close to avoid showing TOTUS as much as possible.
Apparently most Republicans what the increase, so do small business owners, according to a “report” Obama read.
“Well I work at Target, so it affects me directly,” said Brandon Baron, who is the junior Vice President of the NAACP at CCSU “(I hope they) get this bill passed and raise the minimum wage.”
In Connecticut, a Quinnipiac Poll released Tuesday showed that 71 percent of people polled support raising the state’s minimum wage. Gov. Dannel Malloy has been a supporter of that and has pushed to raise it.
In addition to Malloy, the president was expected to be joined by the governors of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Vermont.
Yeah, when I was solely supporting my wife and daughter with a 28K first year’s teacher salary, I got something called a “second job” Brandon.
The editorial board at the rag on Broad Street in Hartford ,aka the hartford courant, was so excited that obama was coming to ct that three of them wet their pants.
Un, uh, a pay stub, uh, paid minimum wage, uh, this is good for business, uh, I was talking to Doug, you know the point, that Doug, and his family...
And he’s done. Crazy rambling speech.
Why bother with making it a measley $10 per hour? Why not $100? Or better yet, make it a million dollars an hour. Everyone will be a millionaire, they will all be “rich,” and 0bama can soak the greedy rich people in bring in tons of new revenue.
There would be a great deal of entertainment value in that, and a real chance the democrats would lose a chunk of their base (low information voters).
Minimum Wage Control is essential to Soetoro-Obama’s desire to control and then destroy what is left of a free market in America.
I bet you a dollar that he will mention the “folks” AND “gettin stuff done.”
I would rather watch snakes shedding their skin than watch the imposter lie on TV.
Unfortunately, we have a brainless Boner. Even $20 an hour would put them on the hot seat.
CCCP State University?
The min wage is all about this. It will put millions out of work as companies automate and get rid of unskilled labor.
“...so they may nuke Baltimore, but at least you’ll be getting time and a half.”
They managed to let some unknown SUV with flashing lights onto the highway with the motorcade, per CSP radio traffic.
This is all a red herring distraction. All the blue states are free to set their minimum wage at whatever they want.
If they just got aggressive and reminded the public about that the GOP could shutdown this BS real quick.
Oh, and it had NY plates. Idiots.
“If they just got aggressive”
There’s the problem.
Drawing a line in Ukraine by raising min wage in the US.
I’m in the Horticulture Industry and was reading one of my trade magazines the other day which compared salaries/hourlies across the board for our industry.
EVERY job, from stock person and greenhouse workers and up starts at WELL above the current minimum wage (averaged) here in the Midwest.
This is another jobs killer. We’re going to be limping through the hectic spring season, understaffed and p*ssin’ off the customers left and right.
We’re already suffering under 0bamacare.
Life kinda sucks right now, but at least I’m paying those that DESERVE it, a decent starting wage with room for advancement.
I’m pretty sure Brandon’s getting paid exactly what he’s worth. If he spent a little less time NAACPEEING he might be able to learn a trade. As it appears he’s just polishing his grifter apple.
Also, he’ll jog up the steps to the stage to show folks how energetic and vigorous he is.
When you get down to the minimum wage. It’s a sign he has been neutered.
Brandon, when you get laid off or get you hours cut, let me know how that $10.10/hr works out for you. Ok?
Most LIVs will still vote for RATs, even after being laid off from their jobs because they “know” that “Republicans only stand for rich people”.
I was thinking more along the lines of Harry Reid killing a bill raising the minimum wage to $30, and the LIVs taking it out on the democrats for depriving them of living large. Your statement is true in any event, sadly.
I doubt the LIVs would blame the RATs even for that! They would blame whomever the media told them was responsible. And we know who that would be.
WFSB is the TV equivalent of the Courant. They report every liberal talking point, and if anyone dares to point that out or discuss the other side in the comments, they delete it.
was there a dead, i mean, deaf interpreter?
? - “Diaper Awareness Month” declared by CT Governor Malloy - ?
- that NAACP guy will need some diapers if he expects to join management at Target Stores
“Well, since I lost mt government job, I have been working at Walmart, so this affect me personally.”
