On today’s Mobile DailySkew Podcast, Tony Vahl tackles the controversial topic of public sector wages vs. private sector wages:
– Is the Daily Caller a prostitution site that runs occasional news articles, kinda like Playboy?
- Is Vahl’s life a “Sominex special”? [NAH]
- The story Vahl is referring to, titled “Yes, they’re overpaid,” was originally published by the Weekly Standard before being borrowed by the Daily Caller.
- Comparing public sector wages to private sector wages should be a statistical matter, not political.
- Tangent Time: Black-Eyed Peas sounded like Kim from Atlanta Housewives on the fast dance songs. You can’t sing like you’re an excited audience member; the artists have to maintain their composure, even when doing the hyped-up energetic songs.
- Tangent Time: Vahl felt bad for Christina Aguilera. “Hey, it was a song written in the 1800′s, and half the country doesn’t know it, so I forgive Christina.”
- From the Weekly Standard article: “Federal pay premium is very large for lower and middle-skilled employees, shrinks for best-qualified federal workers.” This sentence inspired this podcast.
– This one sentence is what poor and middle class people want — higher wages for them, and lower wages for the people in charge. What — the rabble rousers at the Daily Caller may try to divide us poor and middle class folks into “Private Sector” and “Public Sector,” but the real question is WHY ™ do private sector corporations pay their employees so little, and pay their executives so much?
– We the people don’t want Wall Street Execs living like Nero while Rome is burning.
– Remember Tyco’s Dennis Kozlowski throwing a $3 million toga party for his wife’s birthday?
- Middle Class and poor people, whether they work for the private sector or government, are on the same side. Don’t let the rabble rousers on the right-wing divide and conquer! Let’s remember the bonuses for bank executives after THEY received a Government TARP bailout! THEY (Wall Street Fat Cats) deserve the criticism, not your local Postal Worker!
