$7.25 (2011 TX min wage) x 26 (hrs per day) x 7 (days per week) x 52 (wks per year) = $68,614

It is obviously the lazy poorz fault if they only earn the $15,080 (40 hours per week...we won't talk about nonsense like sick days) doing some lay-about job like providing home health care. Honestly, you'd think folks would be jumping at the opportunity to spend every waking (and sleeping) moment wiping the behinds of the more fortunate and getting paid for it! Ingrates.

I bet the Koch brothers came in their pants when they saw this. Soon, brothers Koch, soon my precious. The rebirth of the gilded age is nigh.

Around the corner pulling up from behind it’s Welfare Queen followed by Shiftless Bum. Trying to hold the lead is Goodwill Shopper with a very close second by Deserves To Be Poor and Sold Her Children to Science Experiments!!!.

This is some race David! Right you are Chuck. I haven’t seen running like this since that two for one Wal-Mart special on baby formula.

But I thought that Texas created more jobs than the whole US last year! Did they forget to mention these jobs were mostly minimum wage?

Just think how many more jobs Texas could create if they got rid of that minimum wage socialist scrap.
