Tea For Two

If a government is large enough to give you everything what you want

it is large enough to take everything you have.

-Davy Crockett

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance,

and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

-Winston Churchill

Bucking a national trend, St. Louis is lowering its minimum wage Subscribe to comments to this posting

Regardless of the report, minimum wages in dozens of cities and local jurisdictions continue to be on the way up, with some areas (like Seattle) also phasing in increases towards $15 per hour. The exception is St. Louis, Mo, where the minimum wage – according to this report in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch – is set to go down: from $10 to $7.70 per hour.
“Disgusting,” was the response from Fight for $15, a national labor group.
Eric Greitens, Missouri’s governor, thinks differently. “This increase in the minimum wage might read pretty on paper, but it doesn’t work in practice,” he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “Government imposes an arbitrary wage, and small businesses either have to cut people’s hours or let them go.”
