We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Minimum Wage Laws

One of our most silly human traits is our waiting on our duly elected representatives to decide on legislation that will harm his/her political future the least.

I suggest this simple solution: we ask our business owners to raise the pay of their workers. Seriously. Raise your wages. It will be cheaper for you. People will want to work for you, and they will want to stay with you.

The cost of labor is not only the hourly wage. It includes the cost of finding, training, firing, and finding and training again.

We don’t need to go to the ballot box every two, four, six years to make a change. Next week, we need only go down to Costcos or any other like-minded business, and buy what they have to sell.

At Costco, see that smiling face and hear that friendly attitude? He or she is making, on average, $16 per hour.

We don’t need no stinkin’ minimum wage laws. We just need good business practices.
