Swiss Vote Against Bizzaro World

Filed under: Uncategorized — ioconnor @ 10:17 pm

“The country [Switzerland] voted 66 percent against the so-called “1:12 initiative for fair pay” on Sunday that was brought forward by the youth wing of the Social Democrats (JUSO). The idea behind the proposal was that nobody should earn more in a month than others earn in a year.”

This is such a strange concept to me. Especially in the year 2013-11-24. It is as if it came from an alternate reality. What would this mean in America. Minimum wage is about 15K a year. So nobody could make more than 180K in a company that pays minimum wage. Or if an exec were to pay themselves 1.8 million a year then the lowest paid employee would have to make 150K a year.

This is what the “real left” looks like the next time somebody is confused and thinks a politician or media source is left wing!
