IOWA CONGRESSMAN STEVE KING IS EXPRESSING CONCERNS OVER PRESIDENT OBAMA’S TALK OF INCREASING THE COUNTRY’S MINIMUM WAGE BY EXECUTIVE ORDER.

PRESIDENT OBAMA EARLIER THIS MONTH ASKED CONGRESS TO RAISE THE MINIMUM WAGE FROM THE CURRENT $7.25 AN HOUR TO $10.10 AN HOUR.

KING SAYS STUDIES SHOW AN INCREASE IN THE MINIMUM WAGE, MAY ACTUALLY LEAD TO A HIGHER UNEMPLOYMENT RATE:


OC,,,,,500,000 JOBS. :16

KING SAYS THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT BE INVOLVED
WITH ESTABLISHING PAY AND WAGE SCALES:


OC…..STATE MINIMUM WAGE. :20

KING SAYS THE PRESIDENT IS MORE INTERESTED IN KEEPING PEOPLE UNEMPLOYED, RATHER THAN WORKING.
