Flimsy Sanity: Wages

Wages

The new minimum wage won't become law until 2009, if Bushee doesn't veto it. What kind of bullshit is this, I would think it could be instituted in 07.

Speaking of wages, I was watching CSPAN and the head of the American Bar Association was crying about how federal judge wages need to keep up with CEO's and lawyers in private practice. Seems their pay is tied to and equal to the wages of our members of Congress and is now only a measly $165,200 a year. Now if they worked 40 hours a week, 52 weeks a year, the poor bastards are making only $79 an hour. If they cannot live on that, they are not wise enough to be a judge.

I want to see a maximum wage which would improve our economy and force something to trickle down.

    Aha! Try getting a maximum wage through Congress. Not until Hugo Chavez is majority leader!

    Maximum wage. I like that idea. I wonder if we could time their increases to the national average increase for common workers.

    If you are going to live in dreamland, I say, dream big.
