Obama and his cronies have gotten richer, but the people who most strongly supported Obama and his ‘crats — Blacks — have gotten poorer.
- The unemployment rate for Blacks is DOUBLE the national average.
- The labor force participation rate for Blacks is at its lowest since December of 1977.
- The labor force rate for Black MALES is at its lowest ever.
The so-called “Dream Act” is another of those Obamacrat moves that is resulting in real harm to our most vulnerable citizens. In order to provide college assistance to illegal aliens, Florida is being forced to take that aid away from legal citizens.
Planners estimate that approximately 5,000 illegal aliens will qualify under the federally-mandated, state-funded program and that about that same number of legal citizen students will be deprived of tuition assistance they would have otherwise received.
President Obama issued one of his “I can do whatever I want” executive orders in February to raise the minimum wage for new federal contract workers from $7.25 to $10.10 an hour.
Nursing homes that receive subsidized care from the Veterans Administration have two choices: raise their minimum wage workers nearly $3 per hour each OR throw their military veterans out on the streets.
At least one nursing home company has done the math and figured out the additional labor expenses are impossible. They have no choice but to go with door number two.
