Tie Company's Workers' Highest Earnings To Lowest Salaries

To all my family and friends on any side of the political spectrum. This is not a Democratic nor a Republican issue. It is a poor workers versus the rich who can afford to have a business. The Republicans like to claim that the trickle down theory works and that a rising tide will lift all boats. I can tell you that some of us are too poor to have a boat to be lifted. Contrary to what the rich like to claim, us poor folks have worked like slaves all of our lives. Some of us have worked so hard that our bodies break down long before they should have. We were barely paid enough to get by from one paycheck to the next. If Wage Ratio Legislation were passed that would mean that the profits a company made would be shared in a fairer manner with everyone who is doing the work to create those profits. It would make the trickle down theory actually work rather than be a lie told by the rich to justify their own greed. This legislation would make Capitalism fairer to everyone. Capitalism with no controls or regulations allows the rich to feed off the poor like parasites. This legislation would be good for everyone and would encourage job growth as the rich would be forced to hire more people in order to keep more profits for themselves. Small businesses would be exempt. At least I hope that is how they would write up the legislation. The only people it would hurt would be the people whose profits are so huge that it really would not create harm for them, it would just hurt their feelings because their desire to hoard profits while harming their workers, would be curbed. Please vote in your own best interest. Your own best interest is more jobs and fairer pay. Free Will and Harm Not!

Why passing this wage ratio legislation is important to me? Seems like to me everybody in this world is in a big race? People that I know who are poor like me, sorry to use the term loosely, but I am trying to make a point? We are basically trying to survive everyday and if I and I did work at McDonald's? The pay was very low, I could barely feed myself leave out the fact I was expecting a baby so I should not be lifting heavy boxes? But my job in insisted that I did it? After about a week I question my supervisor as to weather I was going to be allowed move up front and work up their, So I just quit? The basic concept I wanted you to understand was I applied for a job for min wage in 1982? No money hardly at all and I did not get anywhere near the top of the whole we called life. All my life I see people who make a lot of money at their job? I always "Must be Nice"? They have houses, kids have more than mine did? You wonder? Maybe it who you know or what your education is? I don't Know We just want a fair shake, a better life for our children and maybe be to pay 2 bills instead of one? Now that is bad when your pay is so low? Is this India and are we being uses for slaves, I would like to know?
