So what is wrong with letting businesses decide how much to pay those under eighteen? Listen to totalitarian New Age Theocrat Cory Heidelberger:
I would say Senator David Novstrup (R-3/Aberdeen) is pushing hard for the youth minimum wage, but that might exaggerate the forcefulness with which David Novstrup legislates. When David talks about Senate Bill 177, he sounds less like a man speaking from conviction and more like a boy told by his dad Al, "Son, here's a bill to keep our profits up at Thunder Road. Get everyone to vote for it, and I'll raise your allowance."
Really Cory, your disrespect for the parents of children is showing. He even plans to use them as political crusaders to destroy South Dakota's conservative culture:
But you know, Democrats, if we're looking for a way to engage young voters and soon-to-be voters, maybe we should use Senator Novstrup's attack on young workers' rights as our number-one organizing tool. If we can't stop the Republican supermajorities from passing SB 177, maybe we refer the youth minimum wage to a public vote. We get moms and dads to circulate petitions with their working teenage sons and daughters
Typical attitude of a New Age Theocratic teacher: get the kids to tell their parents what is right and what is wrong. Now we understand why Democrats have little political power in South Dakota. They think they can dictate what businesses pay their employees and what values parent must agree to. Has any of the Democrats considered moving to the rational right? I know Cory and his gang of Madville New Age Theocrats haven't. I got banned by trying to talk common sense to those radicals.
