King Obama To Unilaterally Raise Minimum Wage

It has been widely reported that a key aspect of Barack Obama’s upcoming State of the Union address will be income inequality. By stoking animosity among the various economic classes, fewer eyes will be on the fiscal disaster his administration has caused.

Building on his established reputation as an imperial president, Obama is expected to announce his latest decree during Tuesday night’s speech: a nearly 40 percent spike in the minimum wage for federal contract employees.

The current hourly floor of $7.25 will soon jump to $10.10, according to White House sources.

A recent statement indicates the goal is to “lower turnover and increase morale,” though no mention was made of the financial impact such an unwarranted, universal raise would cause among the taxpayers forced to foot the bill.

Obama intends this announcement to be a sign of things to come throughout the private sector, as well.

White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough cited “a proposal in both the House and Senate to do that … not just for contractors but for the federal minimum wage across the board.”

The action comes after a mere 32 legislators – out of 535 – signed a letter asking Obama to usurp even more power by issuing another fiat proclamation.

“We think $10.10 is the way to go,” McDonough said. “Nobody who works full-time and works hard at their job should live in poverty.”

Obama has made it painfully clear that he has no intention of compromising with Congress throughout the remainder of his second term. This unilateral move will further cement that promise.

With his eyes toward imposing the same minimum wage requirements throughout the private sector, it is obvious to almost everyone except Obama that such an increase will result in an unsustainable rise in operation costs for any business relying on unskilled labor.

Disregarding the fact that the vast majority of minimum-wage workers are not the sole providers in a household, Obama wants to saddle the poor with higher retail costs by ensuring high school kids make more than $10 per hour flipping burgers.

If the leftist mindset refuses to acknowledge the obvious result of such a policy, one wonders why Obama doesn’t set the minimum wage at $15, $20, or $100 an hour. After all, it’s just money.

  1. He is no king just an idiot

    • Evermyrtle says:

      He is King, "King Of Evil!" Remember this Bible Verse.
      Daniel 11:36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvelous things against the GOD OF GODS and shall proper til the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.

  2. Sure. Raise th minimum wage and put more people out of work so they can collect welfare. Thereby, increase the national debt some more. Good job Obama. Keep up the good work. Destroy the economy some more.

    • Edwardkoziol says:

      He is raising only those who will work for the Federal Government or are under contract for the Feds.But this isn't the only thing this dicktator has done to wreck the economy

  3. Please stop calling him "King" — he is NOT a king!!! Why don't our congressmen challenge him on this? Where are they???

  4. Evermyrtle says:

    He is completely insane, and corrupt with great evil knowledge, if you can imagine such a thing. This is how he has destroyed the economy and morals of the USA and has enslaved 90% of the Senate and the Congress. My Representative votes overall, 4% conservative.

  5. Edwardkoziol says:

    This all sounds so good until wee have to raise taxes to pay for what this dickheadtator is doing to our country with a pen and phone.He thinks that everything he does is the greatest thing since the invention of the rubber.The son of a bitch hates the Constitution and with them democraps in congress he will destroy it.When you graduate from college you shouldn't look for a job at Mickey Ds for a career those job should be for high schoolers and retired people looking to make a few extra bucks

  6. Linda From NY says:

    Obama's failed policies has made gas prices double which in turn has made the cost of living higher, by making the minimum 10.00 it will cost jobs and more people on welfare. This is another way for Obama to destroy the economy while he tries to make himself look like a hero to the people.

    Only the fools will fall for this and it is a dirty sneaky attempt to make these democrats look good for Nov 2014.

    If Obama wanted to do the right then destroy Obamacare and that will help to bring back many jobs.

  7. Democrats just do not understand raising the minimum wage that job's will be lost. Minimum wage is NOT MEANT to be a living wage. It's meant as a starting point for folks to start out and advance to the point where they can do well and is further for young people to work their summer and save for college.

  8. Seeks_the_truth says:

    This means nothing. Absolutely nothing. Maybe except that it allows obama to believe he's more than what he is.
    The reality of this E.O is this, very FEW people will be impacted by this overreach. It only applies to Federal Government Contractor employees. How many government workers make minimum wage?
    Not even the janitor makes minimum wage.
    The 10 or 15 people this will effect will be happy. The Contractors will just pad their bids with an extra million to cover this 'raise' for a couple of people that may, or may not, have a raise in pay.
    It may 'sound' good, but just more Corporate Welfare from this 'administration'.

    I usually troll shit like this. But you're all just so dumb that I can't… like I can't even get jazzed up to do it. I mean, I don't know whether to laugh or cry here. You're just so so stupid. Oh wow.

    • Linda From NY says:

      Hey Tom, this goes way beyond, it is much more and we Americans are tired of this clown's stupidity.

      If anybody is stupid it is you, do you NOT see what this fraudulent Obama is doing to our Country, his failed polices have contributed greatly to the high cost of living.

      You are so stupid that it doesn't matter that in 5 years he has made the deficit worst stealing from the tax payers and the future our children but of course a dimwit like you does NOT see this and chances are you voted for this loser.

      Obozo has wasted in 5 years Trillions of dollars and he has Nothing To Show For IT, do you understand That? You Moron!!!

      This raising of the minimum wage will cause more joblessness, if Obozo wanted to make a real difference he would repeal this nasty healthcare and he would stop and wasting billions of tax payer's money and giving billions to Countries that do NOT like nor respect us. He has given billions to the muslim brotherhood and these people hate us.

      Obozo is giving Africa 8 Billions of taxpayer's money to Africa's infrastructure, isn't that nice while our own infrastructure is falling apart.

      In the mean time Americans are jobless, Obozo and his ugly wife needs to stop wasting hundreds of millions on vacations, if anybody is stupid it is you and you should cry, it is your Country too You Dimwit

      Get Your Head Out of Your Azz and Wake UP!!!

    • I normally don't waste time putting trolls like you in their proper place, but you're just so Kool-Aid inebriated that I simply can't resist. I mean, you're sooo Kool-Aid inebriated that you're beyond help.

      • Linda From NY says:

        Well said RacerJim

      • Tom Ballard says:

        Well, of course you don't anything about me. I didn't even vote for Obama in 2012. I protest-voted a write-in candidate. The operative word here is "protest." I'm sharply critical of several of the administration's policies. Which suggests that I'm not "sooo Kool-Aid inebriated that [I'm] beyond help."

        But what I like even less is a bunch of idiots, who lack even a basic understanding of the policy their condemning, getting together and hurling insults.

        • Linda From NY says:

          Hey Tom you are the one that started with the insults first calling us idiots, if anybody is an idiot it is you who don't seem to get it. Obama's failed policies have hurt job growth and this minimum wage will do more harm then good, this will hurt businesses and it will cost jobs.

          Obama can choose other ways to help the American people by cutting back on waste and stop the reckless spending and ditching this Healthcare from Hell

          What is it that you do NOT get? You must not be very intelligent to figure this out,
          It is simple pinhead

  10. MuslimLuvChrist says:

    I just had a drink for every time nigga said I, me, mine, pen, phone, and I am waisted.

  11. All you newbeees to the world of jobs, don't count on getting one next year if the minimum raise threat goes thru, there won't be any new hires but don't you worry the fed government will grow some more and the illegal union workers will get a raise and the congress will vote themselves and the POtuS another raise for the great jobs they do and you will have to go pound salt….you just might want to yell,"Repeal the Unaffordable HC Scam Care Act"

Speak Your Mind
