Wrong Way Walker: Minimum Wage Serves No Purpose


Thank you Scott Walker.

It's a tough task activating younger, poorer folks who tend to make up the majority of people working for minimum wage.

They are super busy, working a couple of crappy jobs. They have kids to schlep and meals to get made. They don't have time to surf in internet to discover how you have fucked up the state's economy. They don't know every nuance of the WEDC debacle or the latest John Doe email discovery. They don't get the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel to keep up with Politifact debates.

However, since you just yesterday, uttered these words on the minimum wage:
"I'm not going to repeal it," Walker said. "But I don't think it serves a purpose because we're debating then about what the lowest levels are at."
You got a whole bunch of people - who know without a doubt, the guy they work for would totally pay them LESS if he could - to just start paying attention to the race, motivating them to vote in a way Rock-the-Vote never could.

So again, thank you Scott Walker.
