New Soopervideo! Bernie the MathMan Sanders Militant Class Warfare Math Lessons!!
Ever since Obama has decided to “pivot” away from gun control which was a huge loser for him towards the economy, there have been more and more “grassroots” events ginned up by OFA. This week it was a dim-witted protest against fast food jobs – apparently the unemployment rate isn’t high enough so they thought they’d demand $15 an hour for unskilled labor!
Bernie Sanders went up to bat for this one, as he launched into some class warfare tirade to to make it seem like CEO pay is completely out of hand. Except… if you actually do a little simple math, it’s surprising just how little difference it would make if some gangly old Marxist fired CEOs from these companies, stole their salaries, and re-distributed to the employees:
- Fire McDonald’s CEO: Employees make $.007 more per hour.
- Fire Burger King CEO: Employees make $.016 more per hour.
- Fire Yum! Corp CEO: Employees make $.045 more per hour.
So shove it, Senator Sanders. Obama takes more out of these employees’ pockets than the CEOs do.
UPDATE: Am I the only one who noticed this?
