PART. IV. JOBS and COMPENSATION
Section. 3. A minimum wage of $20 by 2024:
Taxpayers now give welfare to minimum wage workers so they can survive. The Valentine Constitution instead requires companies like Walmart to pay its workers a living wage so that taxpayers no longer have to make up the shortfall in the form of welfare payments, food stamps, low income housing, health care, etc.
Minimum wage workers are CHEAPER THAN SLAVES. If you offered a Wall Street CEO slaves, the CEO would refuse, because the cost of housing, feeding, clothing, transporting and keeping slaves healthy is far higher than the minimum wage.
Our current constitution allows the kings and queens of Wall Street to pay workers less than slaves. The Walton children who own Walmart are the only ones who benefit from these taxpayer welfare subsidies. These soulless greedy addicts already have more money than they can spend in 100 lifetimes! Allowing heartless hoarders to rule our country destroys hope and dignity and engenders superficial values, just so billionaires can have another 100 feet on yachts they never use. Our current constitution allows billionaires to lord over us with impunity, paying workers less than they would slaves. This practice has undermined the middle class at the heart of our democracy to create a whole new class of oppressed Citizens we call “the working poor“.
