On That Asshole Bernie Sanders Continually Advocating For A Living Wage

How dare he! In regards to Bernie Sanders wanting to increase the wages for the hapless $9 an hour auto detailer who irresponsibly had kids that he couldn't provide for and who seemingly doesn't have a desire to improve his human capital, skill set, etc? Fuck both Sanders and the auto detailer!

BTW, what exactly is Bernie Sanders going to do for this fellow when we raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour and the hapless auto-detailer is likely priced out of the market? Add yet another federal entitlement program to the 126 that currently exist? And to which he is probably already eligible for? Hold a gun to his head and make him get additional training?

I mean, I know that the Left constantly thinks that it can fix things and all, but this hapless dude absolutely deserves zero compassion. People who refuse to take personal responsibility deserve to be taken advantage of by our wealthy overlords. Yes, wages are a very small percentage of the final cost of goods, so they could be increased for everyone across the board and it wouldn't add much to the Industrialists' bottom line.

But I object to paying people fairly when it would impact the plutocrat's obscene profits. Even if just a little. Perhaps their profits would go from obscene to just healthy. Question is, is this acceptable? I say NO WAY! This is an idea the Left can stuff, IMO. And wouldn't it be nice if these folks occasionally came up with something original (a la Charles Murray's negative income tax proposal, John Breaux's premium support plan, etc)? Just to change things up, I'm saying. Even if a negative income tax is totally Communist (and it is).

P.S. And anybody who tells you that they can't improve their human capital is bonkers. I just got a course-listing in the mail from my local community college and these folks offer certificate programs for Certified Nurse's Aide, Hospital Patient Care Technician, Emergency Medical Technician, Pharmacy Technician, Security Officer, Real Estate Principles and Practices, Principles of Lean Manufacturing, Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc.), Therapeutic Recreation, and Bookkeeping and Quickbooks. And this is just one venue, folks. Multiply it by X.

All these low wage workers should get skilled up and get new higher paying jobs. Then auto detailing can be done by black youths for super low wages.
