US Socialist Party Proposes Hike in Minimum Wage to $20...

Post  News Hawk on Fri Nov 28, 2014 8:34 pm

Earlier this month, the nonprofit posted listings on Craigslist to advertise an opening for a part-time web designer. It offered to pay $13 an hour or more, depending on the designer's experience. That's well below the $20 minimum wage the party pushes for in its platform, and lower than the $15 wage it helped pass this year in Seattle. Right-leaning sites promptly seized on what they saw as hypocrisy.

But Doug Barnes, the party's national secretary, told The Huffington Post on Saturday that the group relies heavily on donations from low-wage workers and could not afford to pay much to an inexperienced designer.

Typical liberal for ya'. They tell others what to do but don't do it themselves. Their "business" can't AFFORD it, but they would love to force other businesses to pay it. Why are all liberals hypocrites? They don't want to pay it themselves, but they want others to.
