The Kodel Administration
Does NOT support a $15hr minimum wage!
An entry level wage ought to be what the market will bear!
If you are a 16 year old high school student, $8hr is plenty. This writer started at $1.40hr!
If you are a 40+ year old man or woman trying to support your family on MINIMUM WAGE this means either you lack ambition, education or were not afforded opportuities for advancement. Nobody expects you to feed your family on an entry level wage. This is precisely why The Kodel Party will eliminate ALL your taxes. Federal, State and even those stupid fees on your utility bills, cell phone bills, gas taxes, etc.
INSTEAD, YOU WILL KEEP EVERY DIME YOU EARN!

(National Transactional Surcharge)
Here's why. It’s about you, as an employee, taking your power back and it’s about employers understanding and appreciating your value. An employer can’t exist without you! You have to understand this concept. They do. Employers risk their entire livelihoods in deciding to start a business. If you don’t appreciate this, you should. To force them with unrealistic financial constraints before they’ve even earned their first dollar is an unfair and unnecessary burden that puts their enterprise and family in peril.
Nobody wins if this business goes under. Our objective is for everyone to not only strive for success but to succeed. Existing businesses, those with sales, profits, budgets, etc., will know exactly how to establish their payroll structure and not risk their businesses. If they don’t offer a fair wage, it’s up to you to take responsibility and not to apply for work. Eventually, equilibrium will be established.
Income inequality is a flawed concept. Nobody is 'entitled.' Nowhere is it written where everyone should earn the same wage. We are all individuals. We are all unique. We all possess different intellectual levels. We all make choices, rightly or wrongly. We all have different interests. We all have different levels of ambition, inspiration, dedication. We all demonstrate different levels of effort. We all have different experiences, training, education, etc. People have to drop this entitlement mindset once and for all. You are not entitled. What you do deserve is equal opportunity. No barriers whatsoever. This is our mandate.
Under the Kodel Administration workers and businesses will no longer have to pay taxes. This will allow you to earn and keep a pure wage. Having more disposal income will empower you as never before. It gives you 100% control of the money you earn. That’s how you take back your power. The government is no longer going to pull money from your checks. This goes far beyond the scope of this $15 minimum wage discussion but suffice it to say, the government will get lean and be prevented from wasting trillions of hard earned tax dollars funding foreign regimes; because, frankly, that’s where your money goes and that stops now.
State and Federal government must exit this debate at all levels and leave it to the free market.
If for example, a franchise hamburger chain wants to thrive in the burger business, they require employees to make and sell those burgers. If they don't pay enough, it's up to you "the employee" to walk away. Better yet, don't even apply if the pay is so little or not to your liking. You could negotiate for a higher wage at this particular establishment. The responsibility for low wages rests solely on the workforce. They won't sell even one burger without you. You need to take back YOUR POWER.
As a collective body (workforce) you have to make them see your value.
A business has made a huge investment in starting their business. It makes sense for them to budget that investment into their wages. If they can't pay a healthy wage, they ought not be in business and
would do better working for someone else themselves.
Another example. Hotels and motels need their rooms made up. Otherwise, no traveler would stay in their establishment. If they don't pay a wage you accept, don't apply. Eventually, they will come around as few managers want to make beds or clean rooms. DEMAND a higher wage by letting the marketplace dictate the fair wage. We have to let the capital markets work they way they are supposed to.
Supply and demand. This goes for labor too.
This is exactly what happens with companies. It's competition that lowers prices.
Also, it is not businesses responsibility to provide for you and your family. That falls on your shoulders. It is your responsibility to improve your worth through education, job skills, etc., for better paying jobs. High School students need entry level jobs to learn responsibilities and earn some money. Not $15hr.
Besides, waiting for many years to reach the $15hr level doesn't solve today's economic problem!
A possible work-around for small businesses against the wave of $15hr implementation is to stop offering wage positions altogether and only offer salaried ones. The unintended consequences of this $15hr movement has yet to be realized. The 'entitled' generation believes everyone should cater to their every whim on demand. It's the wrong mindset.
Socialist supporters are of this generation. They feel entitled and want everything for free.
That's not how the world works and never will. It's lazy.
Ideally, a winning working business model is where employees are stakeholders in the company.
WINCO is a great example. Many employees are millionaires. It fosters incredible loyalty; lower loss prevention and fully compensated employees (all who own the company).
WINCO = Washington, Idaho, Nevada, California, Oregon.
The burden on small businesses is not being understood by those seeking a minimum wage increase. It's imperative to look at the big picture from both sides. Under the Kodel Administration, we end ALL taxes as you know them. Paychecks will be fat as a result. Workers will have total control over the money they earn. If it's not enough at a particular job, find another higher paying one. Employers will also no longer have to withhold from your paycheck and pay for your entitlements. We are shifting responsibilities where they belong. Businesses will no longer pay taxes, so they will have more money.
Employers no longer having to pay taxes lightens their financial burden dramatically. The days of just getting by are over under the Kodel Administration. Employees will pay for their own dental, healthcare, or like incentives such as 401(k) matching. This is an extreme burden (expense) for employers.
The entire USA minimum wage workforce nearly doubles their income under our policies
and aren't taxed either, improving their quality of life, self-esteem, pride and most importantly,
they earn respect for themselves. This is the American Dream.
Unions protect its members. We need the entire union body to support the Kodel Party. But now unions can focus on workplace safety not income. Nobody but you belongs in your wallet!
This isn't only about food services. It's about the entire minimum wage workforce. Doubling their income is a good thing for the U.S. economy. Rising from poverty actually creates new pathways for advancement and quality of life, lifting morale and improving self-esteem, giving real hope to millions of loyal Americans. What business wouldn't want more affluent and abundant customers? Demand for goods and services will create more jobs and more importantly reduce social service programs, lifting the burden from communities, states and federal governments. Make sense? It's called common sense and fiscal responsibility. Look, the government is a horrible steward of public funds. We endeavor to put the money back into your pocket once and for all giving you complete control of your hard work.
During 'my' time as an Air Force sergeant on a special duty assignment with the Commander-in-Chief, Pacific (CINCPAC) at Camp H.M. Smith, Hawaii, I had Navy & Marine enlisted friends on 'food stamps' and this never made sense to me--how lower ranking enlisted personnel were working/living below minimum wage. How does a government permit this? The same thing is happening to a vast majority of the civilian workforce. The Kodel Party would fix this once and for all. In fact, the entire mission of the Kodel Party is meant to champion the working, middle class. This is our premise. We will also make it better for the upper middle classes. They also should not be misrepresented. Prosperity for everyone is our mission. We have to clear pathways for you to succeed but it is you who has to walk the path.
One way we accomplish this is to stop using your hard-earned money to fund other dictators, foreign regimes and wasted programs. Let's repeat what you already know: The federal government is not a good steward of the national wealth. The Kodel Party would rather you control your own money! All of it.
People working at low paying jobs deserve more respect than they get, more than we give them. You no longer have to pay taxes under our platform so you will have more money. It's your money. We're just giving it back to you. Want more money, find a higher paying job. When you climb the ladder of success, you empty the rungs below you giving more opportunities for those just starting out. More discretionary income will improve your quality of life. The critical message here is to put all Americans in charge of their own money. What a concept. You are not going to be arbitrarily taxed; you can spend your money any way YOU choose. If you waste your own money, that's on you.
Ending the complete tax structure by implementing the National Transaction Surcharge (NTS) of only 7 cents on the dollar is meant to replace the entire IRS (Federal/State) taxes. Basically it's a consumption surcharge. Better you decide where and how your money goes than some bureaucratic tax code/tables.
Homeowners, imagine paying a property sales surcharge only once when you buy your house and not for the next 30+ years! Imagine what you could do with your saved 29+ years of property taxes. Common sense says you'll spend your money going to more monthly movies, dinners, shopping, trips, etc.
People will have full and complete access to their hard-earned paychecks. When they spend their money on goods & services this will create an enduring cycle of prosperity. There will actually be MORE jobs not less.
When people have more buying power many positive things happen. Prices actually go down. When you have more money, more disposable income, you have options. That gives you more freedoms.
Consumers vote with their dollars every single day. Those who want to trade their products and services for your dollars or bitcoins will compete for your business. This lowers prices. The Kodel Party wants you to keep your entire paycheck. You will have 100% say where to spend it. Every working person will be able to afford better automobiles; homes; education; groceries; clothing; entertainment; appliances; services, vacations, etc. This stimulates an economy.
Why can't the leadership of this country figure this out?
