    This was addressed yesterday when it was pointed out to him that Texas leads the nation with minimum wage workers among hourly paid workers.


    Among hourly-paid workers in Texas, 550,000 had earnings at or below the prevailing Federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour in 2010, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. (See chart 1.) Nearly 5.8 million workers were paid at hourly rates, representing 55.7 percent of all Texas wage and salary workers.1. Regional Commissioner Stanley W. Suchman noted that the number of Texans paid at or below the Federal minimum wage increased as the number of workers earning the exact Federal minimum wage rose, while the number of Texans paid below the minimum wage declined. Combined, these workers accounted for 9.5 percent of all hourly-paid workers in Texas.2. (See chart 2 and table 1.)

    Minimum Wage Workers in Texas - 2010


    Now he seeks to change the parameters of the BLS report because he doesn't like the results.

    The $4 billion was cut directly from the school budget. This budget is part of what the district uses, so the districts are short that $4 billion. So, your squirrel effort is simply inaccurate.

    Good grief

    The 4 billion is deducted from the amount the state sends to ALL The school districts in the state and has nothing to do with the District funds paid from property taxes which go directly to the school District. You seem very confused. Now what does that have to do with the thread topic.

    For 2 1/2 years we have seen the actions of a leftwing liberal who was incompetent and an empty suit. That "hope and change" message created the results I have posted which of course you ignore. Enough of liberalism, time for real hope and change meaning "Barack Obama, You're fired!"

    I thought one of your arguments for Perry was that he kept the cost of business low in the state of TX, but your own source ranks TX at 33 for that particular metric by itself. It is the other things that actually put the state at the top for doing business, such as transportation and infrastructure, where it is ranked first (which makes since, since TX has a coast and several major international airports and, apparently, really good roads), tech and innovation and access to capital (which TX actually ranks below CA, NY, and MA in these areas), and the cost of living. Now, I guess you could give Perry credit for not increasing the cost of living, although he didn't enact anything that is keeping it low, or allowing TX transportation and infrastructure to go to crap, although those things were there before Perry took office. In fact, according to your source, MA is more business friendly than TX, and this is based on government legalities and regulations.

    Squirrel!!!!

    Yes, from all the school districts. Let that sink in. The money comes from all the school districts, effecting all their budgets. No one claims it effects their property taxes. But that's just another squirrel moment for you, as is the rest of your post.

    Sorry, Boo, but you just don't have a clue. I know where my tax dollars go, why don't you?

    Has nothing to do with anything. The fact is $4 billion is being cut from school budgets.

    TX has no State income taxes and very favorable regulations, that lowers business expenses. Perry has been a very good ambassador for TX by going out and selling TX to businesses across the country. Seems to be working. What has Obama done to improve the national economy. He ought to be happy with TX as the numbers here are making him look better than the total national numbers.
