-Remember Me - Fight For Living Wages!

Stepping out of the 47% and Picketing for Higher Wages.

Taking Personal Responsibility

"Fighting and Taking Responsibility is waking up every morning . Earning a Honest Days Wage"-Karla Jordan

by Karla Jordan-freelance writer/photographer/activist

The Republican national convention was held in Tampa, Florida for the Presidential Campaign 2012. 
 As a low wage earner and cashier. I held a sign that read, "Remember Me" Fight For Living Wages!"

At the time I was not sure if Big Money like Mitt Romney would win or Barack Obama would be re-elected. So, feeling as though the super wealthy magnet of the Staples empire would forget the little guy. I came up with picketing at the entrance to the Republican National Convention in front of the Bank of America. My belief was it would cause the delegates and law makers to remember us the little guy. The cashiers who put in 40 hour work weeks and sometimes are unable to meet our basic necessities in life. I want my co workers to know that it is right for us to fight for a wage that is a sustainable living. It is not a question of if the job is worth that much or asking the company we work for to pay a living wage. It is if it can afford us workers enough to pay for our bills and necessities. Some of us work and do not qualify for benefits of any kind and live right over the line of poverty.  America Fight For Living Wages!

It is a worthy cause to Fight For The Living Wage not just at Walmart but for every little guy from Taco Bell, KFC,  Dollar Stores,  Publix ,  Krogers,  Albertsons, Outlet Mall Stores, and many others that work at low wage earning jobs. 

The question is not is the job worth paying someone $15.00 an hour. The answer to the question is pay a man a wage that will support him. Do not ask a man to come to work everyday and the pay does not meet his obligations.

This fight has just begun!

Mitt Romney at a Private Fund Raiser

"There are 47 percent of the people who will  vote for the president no matter what..

who are dependent upon government, who believe  that they are victims. …

 These are people who pay no income tax. … and so my job is not to worry about those people.

 I’ll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”
