Keith Ellison and his sort of social contract.

Politics: He can bring the pap to a political debate.

Democratic Congressman-elect Keith Ellison, a long-time proponent of a minimum wage increase, said in a statement that no one who works full-time should make less than $11,000 a year. "In America, there is a sort of social contract that says if you work hard and play by the rules, you can get ahead," Ellison said. "Raising the minimum wage makes sense."
Anyone can point out this social contract anywhere where it is guaranteed that if you work hard and play by the rules, everything will be clear sailing as a result? Working hard and following the rules only guarantees you have a better chance at a better life. You earn in this world, you are not given a damn thing because you think you deserved it by working hard. Only things set in stone are death and taxes. Ellison yapping about this sort of nonsense is why a segment in this country think the government should be their mommy and daddy to take of their needs.
