The issue of the minimum wage has been in the news again and I have the feeling that if I were looking for the top 10 scandals today, the present minimum wage would be one of them.
The minimum wage needs to be doubled immediately if the right to live and the dignity of workers are going to be respected.
The lowest-paid workers have been slaves for far too long and the preposterous trend of the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer has dragged society down too far already.
Slavery and poverty are fast in the process of becoming a crime against humanity.
The selfishness and greed which have poisoned the politics and corporations of the day have held sway for far too long, and real democracy, with good morals and respect for others, needs to be re-inserted into the present system.
