Dumb Ron Johnson sabotages new Service Economy by blocking Minimum Wage Increase.

Now that the U.S. has gone from manufacturing to being a low wage service economy, it would be irresponsible to pretend service industry wages should stay at its current level.

But that's what Dumb Ron Johnson thinks. The cost of doing nothing, thanks to Johnson, would not only cost taxpayers money when it comes to food stamps and Medicaid, but it would also dramatically suffocate consumer demand.

It's cruel to not raise the hourly wage for tipped workers. Roll Call:
Johnson's inadvertent truth...
FEDERAL MINIMUM-WAGE INCREASE: The Senate failed to reach 60 votes needed to end Republican blockage of a Democratic-sponsored bill (S 2223) to raise the federal minimum wage from its present $7.25 per hour to $10.10 over two years. The bill also would raise the “tipped minimum wage” from its present $2.13 per hour to a level that is 70 percent of the regular minimum wage. The tipped minimum wage, which is received by restaurant workers, hotel valets and others who depend mainly on tips for their income, has not been raised since 1991.
Voting no because restaurant workers just don’t work hard enough; Dumb Ron Johnson. Would you serve this guy at your table?
