California’s Workers Now Want $30 Minimum Wage

In a recent report by the Market Gains channel, the host shared about the issue of minimum wage in California. Just a month ago, the state implemented a $20 minimum wage, a move celebrated by many workers. However, the initial optimism has given way to concerns as massive layoffs sweep through various industries.

Why not just set the minimum wage equal to the highest income reported by any state resident, divided by 2,000?

This is what follows when you slavenly devote yourself to some false childlike cult ideology and try to remake society according to it. We in the normal world call it - reality.

Or that prices went up? I tell you what, if the morons in California ever make that happen and there is nothing that will keep me in this state once my mother passes...no matter what my wife says about not leaving our kids and grandkids because there won't be any choice, it'll be leave or live in the car and circle starvation.

I seem to recall that French dude from the 19th century who visited the US, said we would last until we realized we could vote ourselves money from the treasury?

Romans 12:16-21

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Best be gitting while the gitting is good... Bring your mamma and drag your kids out by the lip... Your grands and great-grands will talk of you in reverent tones as the great Moses of your family - As my whole clan does about my dad. Or Lot... Imagine standing in the mountains afar off overlooking the burning rising up over the cities of the plain...

Or imagine trying to sell your real estate after the fact in Sodom or Gomorrah...  :whistle:

I display the Confederate Battle Flag in honor of my great great great grandfathers who spilled blood at Wilson's Creek and Shiloh.  5 others served in the WBTS with honor too.

I don't think they are very popular at their current price point, you can bet that every fast food location that has been forced to pay the current $20 minimum is fast tracking robotics, order kiosks as well as AI or remote, as in India, order taking and I can see a location get down to less than five employees a shift, especially if they completely eliminate their dining areas and go full take out. This is the result of forcing a $20 minimum on chains with 60 or more locations in California...for now, you know the socialists won't stop until they can kill every mom and pop business in the state and drive every possible employer out that remains.
