A Thank You Note to the Republicans
I wish to personally thank Republican state Sen. Glenn Grothman, R-West Bend, and state Rep. Mark Born, R-Beaver Dam, for joining with Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce to introduce Assembly Bill 667 allowing a 7 day work week. My grandparents and their union buddies were totally out of line when they fought for a day off each week.
Thankfully, Grothman also authored Assembly Bill 611 which will get rid of overtime pay for working over 40 hours per week. Lazy socialists like my parents had no right to force decent corporations into these profit killing ideas.
Best of all, Assembly Bill 750 will eliminate efforts by local government to improve wages for working families. City councils and county boards should never be allowed to interfere with the free market. Frankly, these “government” people should be replaced with corporate leaders who know how to run a community.
Hopefully we can next get rid of socialist child labor laws. There’s no reason working class kids can’t leave school in the afternoon and go to work for four or six hours. Corporate CEO’s controlling Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce would probably be happy to give these kids a few bucks to scrub floors or clean toilets. Low class youth need to learn their place while they’re young.
With any luck there will also be legislation to get rid of the minimum wage. The free market knows what labor is worth. If workers don’t earn much, it’s because they’re not worth anything. They need to figure it out – – – they really do need to figure it out.
So again – thank you to the Republicans for making Wisconsin a great place to live – – – if you’re rich.
