What Does $11.53 Per Hour Mean

Do you have friends or relations who work full time and earn $11.53 per hour? Do you know people who work really hard full time and make less than $11.53 per hour? Do you feel that’s a reasonable full time hourly rate? Is it livable rate?

Now, why am I picking on $11.53 per hour? Because it essentially comes out to $24,000 per year…at 40 hours a week per 52 weeks a year…$24,000. Does that number sound familiar? It’s the salary that the ‘landed gentry’ of Representative Joe Sanfelippo, Senator Alberta Darling, County Executive Chris Abele, etal are touting as a PART TIME SALARY for the Milwaukee County Board.

$24,000 is part time money…shouldn’t those making $11.53 or less be a little bit angry when they work full time for part time wages?

So once they are finished ‘reforming’ Milwaukee County, they are going back to the GMC brain trust and come up with a bill that will provide the rest of us a minimum wage that is a FULL TIME RATE! Right?

    The problem with habitual lying is the associated need for flawless recall of every lie, lest one contradict oneself sooner rather than later. Huge surprise here, no?

    Ed, you seem to be implying that the board should make less than $24,000 because they are part time. What figure do you think they should make? How did they arrive at that amount? Don’t you think regular working folks are more upset that a part time board are making more than $50,000 now?

      Um…just the opposite! Bring the rest of us up to full time!
