There has been no change in the minimum wage since 2000. During that same time, the premier of BC had his wage increased by 109% to something in the $260,000 range.
So... the view from the top is fine. Don't let the wailing and gnashing of teeth of the little people bother you. Heck, if they get noisy enough, lets bring back the days of the galley slaves and chain them to the benches with task masters with whips who can make them really put their shoulder to the oar. You know, those guys at the bottom of the heap are just a bunch of slackards. Not the upstanding members of society with high ethical ideals like a premier:
Drunk Driving in Hawaii
Everybody knows that if you give the poor more money they will simply throw it away on drink and drugs. Not like the premier who was judicious in his use of intoxicants and only used them to excess while on holidays in Hawaii where reckless driving would kill worthless Americans while keeping his driver's license in BC clear of any demerits. Yep, he's a smart cookie.
I guess that's why he feels his salary should be doubled while those who earn their living by their sweat of their brow deserve nothing. Not a cent.
