"In America we can either have maximum opportunity or we can have minimum wages. We cannot have both," said Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas.Apparently the saying "the rich get richer as the poor get poorer" is sound economics. I guess we'll know which side members of congress are on by how they vote on the Democratic bill to raise the minimum wage and by what amendments they try to add to minimum wage bills.
Inflation has eroded the minimum wage's buying power to the lowest level in about 50 years.That means opportunity is at its highest level in about 50 years. So if you are an opportunist, contact your senator and your representative and tell them to keep the opportunists going strong.
So remember the slogan: No opportunist left behind.
