Economics, minimum wage, Opinion Pieces

A Rickety Rackety Recovery…

economic recoveryWhat the establishment have ostensibly been saying over the past few days is this:  “It’s okay to raise the price of everything – we need to generate extra taxes, and extra profits create jobs – but we dare not increase the minimum wage!  Sure, don’t we all wish we could have higher wages, but for some (unfortunately in this case it’s the poorest, again), it’s just not possible.  This is a very delicate recovery.  Any slight alteration from the programme could ruin it! (at least a little bit for the wealthy).  All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others”
