President Cuts Military Pay & Raises Pay for Union Workers

By: Erick Erickson (Diary)  |  January 28th, 2014 at 09:17 AM  |


The President is going to raise the minimum wage for federal contractors to $10.10 per hour. This increase will only apply to new workers on government contracts and will happen over time.

He is doing it by Executive Order.

This will affect other workers whose pay is set through union contracts based on the prevailing wage for federal contracts. It’ll be slow, but it will happen all without Congress.

Contrast with what the President and a bipartisan coalition in Congress just supported — cutting pensions of retired military servicemen and women. Even Paul Ryan defended the cuts. Congress and the President were both willing to renege on promises to those who risked their lives for the country.

But federal contractors within the leviathan will get a pay raise as the President tries to make a minimum wage a living wage.

Pay raise to government workers = Obamaphones.
Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago
