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“.

SUMMARY

Encourages learning new skills and getting and keeping a job

Stimulates growth, entrepreneurship and innovation.

Stabilizes families, reduces both welfare and crime.

A living wage instead encourages workers to acquire more skills to merit the higher pay grade. Small businesses will not pay $20 per hour for the second rate workers that America’s schools and immigration policies now put into our market place. Workers will be forced to up their game.

The Valentine Constitution’s K-12 school curriculum does just that, by identifying the gifts and aptitudes of its students and developing them for commerce. Many of our children will know by grade school what they wish to do and be gainfully employed in their field by high school. K-12 schools will teach real world skills and allow students to mentor and apprentice safely in their communities. Our children will be able to practice their God-given gifts and achieve their destinies, and later mentor and teach as adults. Adults will learn real world skills in free classes taught by retirees on nights and weekends, and in mentoring and apprenticing programs.

A living wage is the backbone of the middle class. It brings stability to the family unit, and reduces both welfare and crime. A $20 minimum wage creates an incentive to get and keep a job, acquire more skills, and find and practice one’s gifts. In another provision, 75% of the products sold in America must be made in America by Citizens. A built in customer base of Americans who can afford to purchase the products they make here at home creates a more competitive marketplace, encourages Citizen and small business entrepreneurship, and stimulates economic growth and innovation.

SPEAK POWER to POWER

Nonprofits, protests, parties, candidates, Presidents with 2 house majorities, none have solved our persistent problems. Instead, polarized sides concern themselves and us in the petty details of their competing investigations. Valentine puts the solutions we need into written legislation we can demand by reserving our votes for candidates who support ratification.

Women and LGBTs want equal rights and pay. Parents want schools that develop children’s gifts into profitable skills. Un(der)employed adults want similar free after school classes. Workers prefer a $20 minimum wage to welfare. Blacks want a fair policing and court system. Fiscal conservatives want accountable, deficit free government and a single 5% tax. Environmentalists, fishermen, etc want sustainable energy, farming, fishing and forestry practices. Celebrities want an end to the paparazzi; and gun owners would agree to background checks. Our current Constitution fails on these issues. This constitution includes them all, and our foundations and rights.

With inclusive legislation to team up behind, this coalition of left and right voters is powerful enough to dictate the outcome of any election. Add sports, music and movie celebrities, and nonprofits dedicated to these provisions, and this constitution will be easily ratified. Polling will force candidates to vote FOR RATIFICATION or not be (re)elected. Recommend ratification, in person, on social media, post a selfie or selfeo saying “Ratify The Valentine Constitution”, join one of our Facebook groups …
