Being Sick Sucks

So it’s a good thing that we can still find things to cheer us up while we let our poor website languish (again, our apologies for that).

The $15 minimum wage hike in California has sent financially troubled UC Berkeley into decision making mode, and “the people who clean buildings, who work in food services or health clinics,” says Todd Stenhouse, will be the ones without a job.

Because of course they will be. The lowest shlubs on the totem pole are always the first to go in socialist run “for the little guy” societies. Because socialists care. They care a LOT!

Also, the only alternative would be to *gasp*, *horror!*, let somebody go who provides, say, priceless services through lectures on transgendered basket weaving or womyn’s studies for a modest quarter mil a year, and how would society possibly survive without that?

We’re sure that the former workers who had to slave mindlessly for less than $15/hr will be much happier now that they’ll be living the life on $0/hr!

Thatisall.

If they have professors who teach womyn’s studies, they are wasting their money.

And since UC Berzerkley’s money is taxpayer money, they are wasting our money.

Chinese troops moving into Mecca?

Seeing as the Chinese does not like muzzies, it will be some interesting times.

I don’t know whether to laugh or take cover!

Minimum wage laws do not “extract more wages from greedy capitalist pigs” like the mouthbreathers who advocate for them believe. Instead, they make all labor that is worth less than the new minimum wage illegal. By definition, this affects only those unskilled and semiskilled laborers whose time cannot create more value than the new minimum wage. It also alters the… Read more »
