Portland's rabble rousers are at it again.
SALEM, Ore. (AP) — A Portland-based activist group has filed paperwork for a ballot measure boosting the statewide minimum wage to $15.
"It's just not right that, you know, a single mother is working two jobs, getting up at four in the morning and getting home late at night, not seeing her kids, because she has to pay the rent," he said.
You're supposed to pay for her bad decisions. Because fairness. If she chose to have kids, then they have "fathers". So go after them to pay child support, but don't expect me to feel sorry for her because she chose to have "baby daddies" instead of a husband and father.
Minimum wage was never intended to be a living wage; it was how you developed skills and moved yourself up. If people made bad choices, that's their problem - they made them; nobody made them for her.
You have to love idiots like the guy in the above photo: he's shouting with his "fight for $15 sign", while waving a bottle of water that costs far more than water from a tap. They make dumb choices, then expect us to pay for them.
March on, kiddies, march on.
