View Diary: Paul Ryan opposes raising the minimum wage out of concern for young people, he claims (68 comments)

  •  Paul Ryan knows very well that (7+ / 0-)

    minimum wage jobs are not held by teenagers.  He is signaling that anyone past the teen years is lazy for not working their way up the ladder if they are still in that minimum wage job.
    No one can support themselves on a minimum wage job.  And certainly cannot afford college or any other schooling on a minimum wage job.
    To make matters worse, Paul Ryan wants to take away Pell grants and low rate school loans.  Which means those in minimum wage jobs stay there.  Which allows those at the top to stay at the top.  As planned.

    1. What does it mean? 2. And then what?
