Rep. Steve King [R] To Workers: Your "Labor Is A Commodity Just Like Corn Or Beans"

Post by Guest on Fri Jun 03, 2011 12:59 am

KING: If you wanna do as many Democrats have said on this floor, and that is that any relationship between two consenting adults the federal government shouldn't be involved in, well this is a relationship the federal government should not be involved in. For the federal government to tell me that I can't say to my own son, I'd like to climb in the seat of your excavator and sit there for $10 an hour, federal government says I can't, he's gotta pay me some $28 rate or whatever that is. But the government has no business interfering and no business driving up these costs. And we must go through this period of austerity. That requires that we not impose federal union scale on federal construction projects. [...] And I think the free market should set the wages. Labor is a commodity just like corn or beans or oil or gold, and the value of it needs to be determined by the competition, supply and demand in the workplace.

Wrong, Mr. Senator. Strange to force austerity on US when your corporate masters have lower taxes than ever.

We the workers are CITIZENS, not commodities. You have responsibilities towards us, and if you do not do right by us you will be removed. If you cannot comprehend that, then you are not doing YOUR job and should be removed. no

Austerity is fine, slavery is not. Union wages -yes should be a person's business-but let's not drop below at least minimum wage.
