OH, THE HUMANITY… – Proposed Wage Hike May Force New Jersey Residents to Pump Our Own Gas
Sorry Jersey Girls…
According to New Jersey Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno, “If we pass the $15 minimum wage, you’re pumping your own gas.”
The Republican was speaking to the New Jersey Gasoline – Convenience Store – Automotive Association (NJGCA) regarding the proposed $15 minimum wage.
“Minimum wage was never intended, in my mind, to provide a living wage,” Guadagno said, according to NorthJersey.com. “It won’t, not in New Jersey. So let’s make minimum wage what it’s supposed to be, and that is a stepping stone up.”
According to NJGCA Vice President Joe Ocello, “Fifteen dollar-an-hour minimum wage, if it does go that route, we’re going to be forced to go self-service because we can’t afford to keep doing what we’re doing.”
First they hike our gas tax… now they want us to pump it ourselves?
What the hell do you think this is—New York?!?!
