exick: Not that I necessarily agree with it and not that Chris Kapenga doesn't have a face that scores a 98% on the punchability scale, but it sounds like the proposed bill is designed to apply to jobs that are paid from state or federal money so as not to unfairly give more money to localities that have higher minimum wages.
Shryke: TimonC346: If by "Kissing your Che poster" you meant to inspire fear in people by equating fair wages to evil, evil communismI equated his proletariat, anti-capitalist screed to communism, you schmuck. Given your immediate misquote of what I said, I am guessing you didn't even read that part.
Shryke: whidbey: It really does make your objections here sound like Republican Party bootlicking.I don't get it. Which part? I am personally against it, but ok with states regulating it? You have some issue with this? This is unreasonable?
Shryke: sprawl15: whidbey: And you're obviously not going to concede that you're against living wages because you would majorly have your ass handed to you here.i am against living wages because the concept of a 'wage' is the prime enablement of capitalist control of the proletariatDid you salute your Che poster when you typed that? Tell me the truth
Shryke: whidbey: And you're obviously not going to concede that you're against living wagesAm I against federally mandated minimum wages? Yes. State mandated? No. Are they smart? No. Do they achieve what they are ostensibly designed to do? No.In reality, they are here to enrich unions because their labor contracts are based on multiplying the minimum wage to some degree.
TV's Vinnie: Why are republicans against everything good and are in favor of everything vile?
eagles95: someonelse: "Party of small government."Exactly
theorellior: As with NC, enjoy your elected government doing what you asked of them, Wisconsin voters. I know some of you tried to kick Walker out, and it didn't work. Sorry for your derpy neighbors, but them's the breaks.

Cities are mandated to pay prevailing wages on construction projects that use Federal CDBG (and other) money. The minimum wage is actually *much* lower than prevailing wages for a majority of construction trades.I mean, unless Kapenga is looking to shut off all federal funding to local municipalities. Oh, he's looking to shut off all federal funding to local municipalities, isn't he?
