Posted on 01/29/2014 10:18:17 PM PST by Olog-hai
Fox News host Bill OReilly says the pinheads in the Republican Party should stop opposing the minimum wage.
The Republican Party should really wise up and stop opposing raising the minimum wage. It should be 10 bucks an hour to keep employers from exploiting workers, O'Reilly said Wednesday during his opening Talking Points Memo segment of his TV show.
OReilly said his proposed $10 an hour minimum wage would apply only to adults. Teenagers just beginning their careers should be paid on a lower scale, he said.
The GOP needs to stop working against working people, OReilly said.

folk off oreilly you are really an idiot
Shaadup Billy’O! Go Cut & Paste another one of those ‘Killing’ books which some say is essentially the same book, but with different people being taken out.
They won’t of course. If the pubbies raise the minimum wage, all the money the Chamber of Commerce is giving them to ensure the country is flooded with cheap immigrant labor would be wasted.
Shut your mouth, turkey neck. Are you saying this in exchange for getting that Obama interview or are you really as stupid as you seem?
Eh? How do you explain SEIU’s “fight for 15”?
What a fool
I prefer Rush’s plan - put up a ‘clean’ Bill to raise the minimum wage to, say, $25 per hour and let the Dems say why not.
So you’re with Obama on this?
How many people does Mr. O’Reilly have on his payroll? Not Fox News, his own personal payroll out of his own pocket...
” are you really as stupid as you seem?”
I dunno how stupid he is, but it IS obvious that he is a pompous ass.
I generally watch O’Reilly and not for Himself, but because has the best guest and most interesting debates, and just ignore his antics. But this was a new low, even for BOR, and I hope viewers really clobber him on it.
It will not matter however, because while O’Reilly will admit and correct factual errors, he has never and I suspect will never walk back any of his opinions. Once he puts forth and opinion, the only thing he will do is double-down on it.
Once illegals have their amnesty, why do they have to settle for being treated like dirt with the threat of deportation removed? No, we will need more illegals to come in to fill that bill - when will these Repub idiots figure it out? History has repeated itself in the last 30 years, so no excuse not to know the impact of Amnesty on our country.
0’Reilly is a dunce. And apparently a closet commie.
Republican strategist Kate Obenshain did not agree, telling OReilly hes taking on the imperialistic position.Now he is openly using Marxist rhetoric.
OReilly countered he is taking the working class position, having worked for minimum wage himself as a teenager.
Curious...does every person who helps make O’Reilly’s “Factor Gear” make $10.00 an hour (or more)?
Everyone who still has a job, that is.
“OReilly said his proposed $10 an hour minimum wage would apply only to adults. Teenagers just beginning their careers should be paid on a lower scale, he said.”
Would that even be legal? It seems to me that paying people below a certain age a lower wage simply because they are younger might open up an age discrimination lawsuit.
At any rate, I maintain that market forces remain the best method of determining wages. Besides, What we REALLY need is an actual economic recovery that will bring the kind of jobs that will pay good wages and put people back to work.
When he said he worked for MW as a teenager he was probably lying. He said it was $1.30 per hour. He’s several years older than I am and MW was $1.10 when I was 20.
