8 Comments on St. Louis Leaders Agree to Minimum Wage Increase to $11/hour
Instead of refusing to work for $7.65 an hour, now they will refuse to work for $11.00 an hour.
My starting pay is $25.00 an hour. Course you have to have an
electrical engineering degree.
Minimum wage is for the lazy and/or stupid.
QuikTrip starts 16 year old part timers off at over $8/hr here in the Fort Worth area of Texas.
Unlike 7-11, they seem to weed out the drooling morons too.
I make $30 something an hour.
Strong work ethic, punctual and reliable, excellent people skills (sometimes have to use on very difficult people), talent as a writer, multilingual, Ivy League college, 38 years in the full-time workforce. Also SERIOUSLY good at what I do–supervisors think the sun shines out my ass.
I course, I work in the civil service, so I make the same as undereducated, incompetent, loserinos with the people skills of mosquitoes.
So now, businesses will move out of the city to . . . Ferguson?
My aunt made 65 cents yesterday picking up aluminum cans along the road . . . so can YOU!
Stupid is as stupid does.
The denizens of St. Louis wouldn’t work biting holes in doughnuts for $50 per hour, much less for $11.
That’s ~23,000 per year, and they can get ~$28,000 on welfare.
