‘It will never stop’

Hawaii Tribune Herald - - COMMENTARY -

Re­gard­ing the pro­posal to in­crease the min­i­mum wage: You poor, stupid fools, you know not where you are di­rect­ing our great econ­omy.

This type of leg­is­la­tion heads us right to­ward com­mu­nism, de­creased in­cen­tive and bur­dens ev­ery cit­i­zens with in­creased liv­ing ex­penses and costs that will never stop.

When 2022 ar­rives and our min­i­mum wage is $22 per hour, they will be scream­ing for $25 per hour. IT WILL NEVER STOP.

What Mr. Nate Par­ris should be as­pir­ing to is be­com­ing his own boss, a cof­fee shop owner. Un­for­tu­nately, our ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem is not equip­ping our young peo­ple with the de­sire, knowl­edge, skills and strength of char­ac­ter nec­es­sary to be­come self-suf­fi­cient en­trepreneurs.

What our schools and dis­jointed fam­i­lies are pro­duc­ing are drones ca­pa­ble of pour­ing cof­fee and flip­ping burger pat­ties and de­mand­ing more in­come be­cause they can’t raise a fam­ily. Then comes EBT cards, Sec­tion 8 hous­ing and, yes, in­creased tax­a­tion. So much for a free and demo­cratic repub­lic. Mike Dick­er­son Keaau
