SMALL BUSINESS MADE AMERICA, FROM THE BEGINNING,, THATS WHY BIG STORES WERE OPEN DURING THE FAKE LIAR HOAX OF COVID,,,LIFE IN PRISON FOR THOSE BIG BUSINESS LIBERAL DERANGEMENT Dem Congressman Confesses ‘We [Democrats] Don’t Want’ Small Businesses …
In Case You Missed It … This is how the Democrats view American small businesses .. they don’t want us around & one rep even admitted it …
Democratic Rep Ro Khanna told Anchor Abby Phillip of CNN’s “Inside Politics”:
“I know that you feel very strongly like many progressives about the minimum wage issue. Right now, at the same time, businesses, both large and small, are struggling in this pandemic economy, more than 9 million jobs have been lost in the last year, and they still aren’t back, and the problem is particularly acute in industries like retail and foodservice, which are more likely to pay minimum wage.”
“I think the question that a lot of Republicans are posing and perhaps some moderate Democrats is timing. Is now the right time to increase it to $15? I should say the bill has stages, of course, but immediately it would go up about 30% right now. Is now the right time to do that?”
“Abby, it’s absolutely the right time to give working Americans a raise. Let’s look at the facts. Amazon raised their wage to $15 nationally, not regionally. They have more jobs today. It didn’t hurt job creation or business. Target followed. They also did it nationally, more jobs.”
You have got to be kidding me, AMAZON? Amazon increased jobs because you made it ILLEGAL for their competition to open. Now THAT is FASCISM as defined by Mussolini. Perhaps we should talk about all the other perks Congress and the USG has given Amazon.
In essence, Khanna and the Democrats promoting the minimum wage of $15 dollars an hour are murdering the American dream of owning your own business. Sure, Amazon can afford to pay $15 but look at how they can afford to do it. During the pandemic, people were not free to go out and shop, so they started ordering everything online. And when the $15 minimum wage closes all the mom and pop shops, the big boys will increase their business.
No longer will someone be able to open a small diner or a coffee shop if they are saddled with a $15 dollar minimum wage. And will the big companies continue to pay such high wages or will they turn to automation? Case in point. Two Walmart Neighborhood Markets near me closed all of their checkout lines. They installed a dozen small self-checkout stations. How many jobs will that cost nationwide?
