The culture of corruption appears alive and well in Speaker Nancy Pelosi's House.
After years of caterwalling about the minimum wage, the Democrats recently rushed the 40% increase in the minimum wage through the House. The new MW applied to all American territory, even the Northern Marianas Islands, except American Samoa.
Starquist employs roughly two-thirds of the people, mostly at minimum wage, in American Samoa, where the minimum wage is $3.62-40% lower than the current minimum wage and about half of the new MW that the Dems thought necessary to save the children of America.
One might ask why the Democrats, who care so much for the children, would allow the children of American Samoa to suffer under a minimum wage that is half of the rest of the Ameican family? Here's an answer-Starquist has its corporate headquarters-in San Francisco, Nancy Pelosi's home town.
Charlie's smiling today.
