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.
