I can't even look at this a$$hole any more (metaphorically speaking). He's continually running down blue collar workers and suggesting the kind of jobs they do should be outsourced to 3rd world wage slaves (SWTD #165). It makes me sick. But this is the worldview of Libertarians. Libertarians like those who hang out at the Contra O'Reilly blog.
|Dennis Marks: It's like the McDonald's workers doing work worth about $8 an hour and oinking for a handout of $15 an hour without doing a single thing to earn this amount. Other than oink for more money. (1/6/2015 AT 3:58pm).|
This would be in stark contrast to those who believe that there is dignity in ALL work. People like Martin Luther King Jr. (SWTD #276).
|MLK: So often we overlook the work and the significance of those who are not in professional jobs, of those who are not in the so-called big jobs. But let me say to you tonight that whenever you are engaged in work that serves humanity and is for the building of humanity, it has dignity and it has worth. (AFSCME Memphis Sanitation Strike 4/3/1968).|
So, fast food workers are "oinking" for an increase in the minimum wage? But we used to pay a lot more (when inflation is taken into account). According to Wikipedia, the minimum wage "peaked at about $10 in 1968" (in 2014 dollars).
MLK lead a march on Washington that same year demanding $2 an hour, which would be $15.27 an hour adjusted for inflation.
Yeah, MLK (according to the likes of Willis and Dennis) was one of the worst "oinkers" ever. Or perhaps it is people like Willis and Dennis who are the real oinkers. They're oinking for more money to go to the plutocrats while running down Blue collar workers by referring to the work they do as "chimpanzee jobs" and they're reading books by authors who believe those who protest against inequality (caused by the plutocrats stealing from us) are talentless losers ("talentless" according to "The True Believer" by Eric Hoffer and "losers" according to a recent WTNPH post about yours truly).
God, how pathetic and unAmerican.
