Keep selling the wage collusion in town

I will at least give Mr. Nasser props for trying to encourage professional careers but the argument is lost with Kiley and the Chamber with the constant push for affordable housing instead of higher wages.

They suffer from a “My Lord” enjoyment and/or a Pullman town mentality.

Even Federal Reserve Banker, Neel Kashkari, who told City fathers in recent months to raise wages and quit complaining about there not being enough workers, could not put an end to this sick enjoyment or mentality.

If Kashkari’s comments to the DWTN Rotary Club, along with wage scales no longer being mentioned in employment ads, are not proof of wage collusion in this town, then I do not know what is.

This enjoyment or mentality by our City fathers speaks of an elitism and self-righteousness, which must be challenged and exposed. And it needs to be an issue in the 2018 mayoral race. But where are the candidates on this issue? They are probably too busy attending Chamber mixers….. You know the Chamber, they are the ones who help fund a study on affordable housing, while at the same time fight every minimum wage increase for workers in this country. Such a mentality, however, can only be understood if one is self-righteous and of an elitist mind of great self enjoyment and mentality….

Perhaps the new tax bill will put extra bucks into the poor working man’s pocket. From early insight it seems to also benefit the wealthy. What’s disturbing is there’s a vanishing middle class.
