It should be pointed out that letting workers earn more money via a higher minimum wage would increase the demand for goods and services, thereby spurring job and wage growth. Demand is the only ingredient that grows jobs and the economy. When money is redistributed to the rich via legislation, such as free trade and privatization scams, or via tax cuts, they simply use their money to purchase more politicians and have them pass legislation that redistributes more income from the 99 to the 1 percent, weakening the demand for goods and services and the economy in the process.

This has been going on for thirty-four years now, and yet Wall Street Senators Ron Wyden, Mitch McConnell and Orrin Hatch, Wall Street President Barack Obama, and Wall Street Congressman John Boehner, want to do more of the same via the Trans Pacific Partnership, another one of those freely trading your income to the one percent treaties, which the Guardian newspaper calls “Nafta on steroids.” Look at the mess these Wall Street toadies have gotten us into during the last three decades, yet they want to do more of the same.
