Wise state spending? Gov. Inslee?

Gov. Jay Inslee says he is considering to unilaterally raise the minimum wage for state employees to whatever level he wants. Why can he be dictator over state pay? Because the Legislature allowed him to in 2002. HB 1268 allowed government employees to unionize and took away the Legislature’s role in overseeing employee pay and benefits and gave it to the governor.

Is Inslee concerned about the state’s costs? Is he concerned that taxpayers get maximum benefit for the spending of their tax dollars?

He is not acting like it. He is very generous with other people’s money - yours. He can throw your money at entry-level state employees and receive their adulation. You? Heh...

Re: "62. None of the trolls addressed my quote this morning of Kshama Sawant that jobs will be lost due to her increased minimum wage. Don't they consider her to be a good source?

You asked: "Jobs lost when the minimum wage is increased?"

Yes. Jobs will be lost if one raises, decreases or keeps the minimum wage the same. Complicated for you?

And you've got some nerve pouting that a commenter on your post doesn't answer your trolling questions.
