Interesting article on Think Progress about one of our very own Rep. Carl McGuire (R – Merrimack 08) and her fight to end the working class, this time specifically mentioning young people.
State Rep. Carol McGuire (R-NH), the sponsor of the law, still believes the federal minimum wage is too high. In a statement to reporters, she said she would like to repeal all minimum wage laws and have corporations pay workers whatever rate they desire. She also said the $7.25 minimum is overly generous to young people who are “not worth the minimum”:
”It’s very discriminatory, particularly for young people. They’re not worth the minimum,” she said. She believes there are young people who would get a job if they could be paid $5 an hour instead of the minimum.
I guess she forgets, or simply doesn’t care to know, that there are other people out there who are working minimum wage jobs just trying to survive.
Once again folks, They. Don’t. Care.
