Ontario Vineyard Village Association Proposes Lowering the Minimum Wage 


Pity the fools at the Ontario Mountain Village Association. They merely oppose a Wal Mart in northwest Ontario, California. The Ontario Vineyard Village Association opposes everything about Wal Mart.

Why? Because it's the trendy thing to do.

It stands to reason that because Wal Mart is evil, anything that Wal Mart likes should be opposed by progressive, reasonable people.

Take a gander at this news from a couple of months back:


Wal-Mart calls for minimum wage hike
CEO Lee Scott tells executives he's urging congressional action in a bid to help 'working families.'
October 25, 2005: 12:47 PM EDT

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Wal-Mart CEO Lee Scott said he's urging Congress to consider raising the minimum wage so that Wal-Mart customers don't have to struggle paycheck to paycheck.

Scott told Wal-Mart directors and executives in a speech Monday that he believes "it is time for Congress to take a look at the minimum wage and other legislation that can help working families."

"The U.S. minimum wage of $5.15 an hour has not been raised in nearly a decade and we believe it is out of date with the times," Scott said. "We can see first-hand at Wal-Mart how many of our customers are struggling to get by. Our customers simply don't have the money to buy basic necessities between pay checks."

Given increasing gas prices and other economic pressures on Wal-Mart customers, Scott went on to say that Wal-Mart shoppers will further be challenged to "support themselves and their families."

"While it is unusual for us to take a public position on a public policy issue of this kind, we simply believe it is time for Congress to take a responsible look at the minimum wage and other legislation that may help working families," he said....

Wal-Mart maintains that it pays above the current $5.15 an hour minimum wage to its employees....



At the Ontario Vineyard Village Association, it's highly obvious why Wal Mart would propose such a thing. Such a move would be a final nail in the coffin for the mom and pop owned businesses that are the backbone of this nation.

For this reason, the Ontario Vineyard Village Association opposes Wal Mart's proposal to raise the minimum wage. In fact, we believe that it should be lowered...to four dollars and fifty six cents.

A day.
