Under the orders from their plutocratic masters, the GOP has helped created a system in which corporations have legally shipped a great many (millions actually!) of high quality jobs overseas, forcing Americans downward in the job quality spectrum, which displaces other workers downward, etc. until we have “entry-level” jobs that used to be the jobs teenagers cut their working teeth on filled by thirty-somethings with families to support. So, fast food workers are now people with families instead of kids with zits.
Next, you blame those “low wage” workers for their lot in life, in that they didn’t prepare better for the jobs that no longer exist unless they moved to a foreign (low wage) country. You oppose minimum wage increases even though inflation has reduced the last min wage to have a real value of about one-third of its nominal value. Why, because it is “bad for business!” But you don’t say that, you say “raising the minimum wage will reduce jobs” all of the evidence to the contrary be damned.
Businesses are more important that the people making them up.
And this is their electoral strategy, designed to win them elections far into the future.
Amazing, effing amazing!
