Trickle Down πŸ‚πŸ’©!

Let’s talk Economics.

Walmart pays most of it’s employees minimum wage. $7.25
Walnart receives Billions in tax breaks along with billions in profits.
Instead of raising minimum wage standard in all states to $15, they pay out billions of dividends to their investors.
As a result a major portion of their employees can’ t afford, childcare and are forced to go on food stamps, to feed their children, because, childcare takes all the food money. So while Walmart and their investors make billions, tax payers have to help their employees eat.
From 1948 to 1979 wages and cost of living were inline with each other. Food shelter went up, wages went up to compensate.
Then in 1980 Reagan a Republican, was elected president and started his “Trickle Down” economics.
The middle class has been shrinking ever since.
In 1982 minimum wage was $4.25. Today it’s $7.25. $3 dollar increase in 39 years.
In 1982 I paid $200 a month for a 2 bedroom apartment. $76 for a car note, and $40 bought 5 bags of groceries.
Today I pay more than $1500 for 1 bedroom apt. $308 for car note and $40 will by me 8 big Macs!
“WHAT HAPPEN WAS” Trickle down economics was trickle down πŸ‚πŸ’©.
Every time Dems try and raise mimnimum wage Republicans call it “Socalism”. To help a family with child care, same thing. IT’S A LIE!
Dems are trying to help the common man. GOP are trying to help corporations.
This nation was built on slave labor.
Republicans and corporations are trying to keep it as close slave labor as they can get.
A honest wage, for an honest dollar isn’t socalism. It’s called being fair.
