King Barack will announce tonight at his SOTU address that he is raising the minimum wage FOR GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES to $10.10 by Executive Order.
But let's look a little closer.... first of all, only CONGRESS can change the minimum wage for the private sector. Secondly, name anyone who works for the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT who makes only $10.10 an hour.
So what group of people is the president 'granting' this wage increase? Are you ready for this?
Answer: Any CONTRACTOR, that gets a NEW GOVERNMENT CONTRACT AFTER 1/28/14 (that would be today) must pay any NEW HIRE $10.10
Damn! Thanks, Mr. President!!! That should get the economy in high gear!
As for tonight's entire speech, all I have to add is......
