Minimium wage hikes by cities getting rolled back, blocked by state lawmakers

Minimum Wage HikesAs some large U.S. cities raise, or consider raising, their minimum wages, state lawmakers are pushing back with laws that void or block the local efforts.

Preemption bills, as they are known, are growing more common, mainly in states where Republicans control the legislature and governorship. They are being drafted and passed in response to moves by city officials – most of them Democrats – to raise the minimum wage and expand paid sick leave, among other things.

St. Louis city officials passed a city ordinance in 2015 raising the minimum wage to $10 an hour and Birmingham, Ala., approved a $10.10 base wage.

But in both cases, state legislators put a stop to the moves through preemption measures that prohibit county and municipal governments from setting their own minimum wages.

    FINALLY, SOMEONE WITH BRAINS. I AM 86 AND NEVER ASK FOR A RAISE IN MY LIFE AND I HAVE WORKED FOR 50C A DAY, YES I SAID FIFTY CENTS. I WAS ALWAYS LOOKING FOR ANOTHER JOB TO IMPROVE MYSELF.

    SHARE THIS WITH EVERYONE YOU CAN.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, A KOREAN WAR VET, AND A CHRISTIAN. I AM AN AMERICAN AND PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND HAVE NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON TO BE PRESIDENT.

    TRUMP NEEDS TO FIRE EVERYONE CONNECTED TO THE DEMOCRATS AND REALLY INVESTIGATE THE REAL MUSLIM PROBLEM WE ARE FACING.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212 WAS PASSED IN 1952 AND THIS LAW SHOULD BE ENFORCED. IT BANS ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE TRYING TO DESTROY US, THAT INCLUDE A MUSLIMS.

    5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON, A MINIMUM OF 31 MORE CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES, AND A FEMA CAMP, (SOME STATES MORE), IN EVERY STATE. BUILT WITH TAX PAYER $. TO HOUSE MUSLIMS???

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE. IF THE CAMPS IN N. VA. ARE TO TAKE DC. WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA ALONG WITH HILLIARY AND THE NEWS MEDIA, HAVE SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    WHY ARE ALL MUSLIM CAMPS CLOSE TO OUR MILITARY BASES?

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    THIS COUNTRY HAD BETTER WAKE UP QUICK.

    If these city leaders feel their communities need this wage hike then why do they not place this on a city wide election. This would be all they would need to convince the state to increase their minimum wage. The city does not want to go through this effort because they know the people would not vote for it. You raise the part time wages at McDonald’s to $10 and the Big Mac becomes $10. Everyone knows that entry level jobs are the only positions requiring minimum wages. Anyone with the training and skill levels to work anything but an entry level position will make much more than minimum wages. Educate yourself and show ambition, give a fare days work for a fare days pay and this problem will go away.
