I don’t care whether your democrat or republic.
I don’t care if your black, white, brown, yellow, or red.
I could care less about what you thoughts are on illegal immigrants or whether we should build the Keystone pipeline.
While I typically hate writing about politics, I had to share this thought with you
What I do care about is employers doing their job to run this country in the right direction, and what impacts fools in Washington have on small business as a whole.
This leads me to something very pressing on my mind and something I actually have a very strong feeling about.
I’m going to express those feelings and I’d like to have constructive feedback from you… someone who also operates or plans on operating a successful business
The Minimum Wage Increase 2014…
Obama has never been one to shy away from flexing his power. Executive order after executive order has led us to a nation of trolls following our President’s words as if they were written from a golden scribe.
Again we have another executive order coming forth. President Barack Hussein Obama is scheduled to unilaterally increase the minimum wage for new workers from $7.25 an hour to $10.10 an hour. Democratic lawmakers have pushed this bill (like so many others) applying directly to employees performing services for the federal government and would affect more than 2 million employees.
Is This A Good Thing?
Depends on what you believe in…
What do you think the minimum wage was intended to do? What is it’s purpose for the economy?
Is the purpose of the minimum wage for middle aged adults and parents to survive on?
Is the purpose of the minimum wage for young people to grow their working experience while being compensated fairly?
I’ll let you decide but I personally believe the latter.
Critics believe it will have an adverse affect on hiring as employee costs with healthcare, now minimum wage have literally put thousands of businesses out of business.
You’ve got to be asking yourself… “How will I have the capital to grow?”
Let’s Add To The Mayhem!
Obama likes to keep business owners on their toes. I mean let’s be honest right.
Does he really care about us, the business owner.
If you don’t believe me, go read the papers.
You know the only reason he hasn’t increase minimum wage in the private sector is because that executive order is not complete.
Believe me. It’s coming
So what are we to do?
Whenever we have a president in power who believes in social equality, income equality, spreading the wealth, and adhering to the lower-middle class, business owners are always faced with a rough few years. As business owners, we are faced to adapt, cut expenses, and re-position our business to thrive in an environment where there’s no water to feed us.
The Only Thing That Feeds Us Is Our Ability To Market
I don’t care whether you live in Texas, Alabama, Louisiana
California, Massachusetts or Connecticut
The minimum wage increase 2014 will affect you.
Your ability to market better than your competition will allow you to keep your marketing expenses down while everything, every expense you don’t have control of skyrockets.
It Will Be Critical To Your Survival
So tell me what are your thoughts on this new minimum wage increase 2014. What affects will it have on your business?
Will you have to cut back on employees?
Maybe have a hiring freeze?
Will you be able to grow as you wanted?
Does it affect your thoughts on our current president and what his agenda is?
I’d really like your feed back and again… I’m apologizing for the politics.
You’ve seen a rare side of me today
Have a great day
