Here is what you want to ignore
Minimum Wage Workers in Texas – 2013
Texas Labor force of 13 million and 400,000 make the Federal Minimum wage or less making that 3% of the labor force and you call that the worst in the country? Walt Disney would be extremely disappointed in your math skills.Of the 6.3 million workers paid hourly rates in Texas in 2013, 223,000 earned exactly the prevailing federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, while 177,000 earned less, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Regional Commissioner Stanley W. Suchman noted that the 400,000 workers earning the federal minimum wage or less made up 6.4 percent of all hourly-paid workers in the state. Nationwide, those earning the federal minimum or less accounted for 4.3 percent of the hourly-paid workforce. (The Texas minimum wage is equal to the prevailing federal minimum wage.)
California has more than 3 times the number of workers making California Minimum wage than the number of Texans but that fact and reality escapes you. Why?
Regarding minimum-wage workers, the Austin American-Statesman said in a July 17 news article that Texas and Mississippi led the nation last year with 9.5 percent of hourly workers earning at or less than the federal minimum hourly wage of $7.25
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
Do you even know how many people in the country are making an hourly wage and then the Federal Minimum wage? Read the article I posted from BLS and then apply your percentage to that total, compare it to the 13 million in the labor force and then apologize for making a dumbass claim. It really is sad that someone your age is so married to a failed ideology that you cannot admit you are wrong. I do feel sorry for people like you, guess that is the liberal in me.
