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.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
