Dean, please tell us you work there. Please explain to us how we're to expect this company to take their 100k and reinvest into their employee training only to have to pay them more. Yes, that sounds so realistic. Ten and a half bucks an hour is not competitive and an indicator that they have no desire to pay fair wages. It's the bare minimum to qualify for the tax credit. The bare minimum. It's the lowest of standards because it is an employer's work market. People will be more interested in companies who are willing to go beyond the bare minimum. This place is doing the minimum, yet will expect their working-poor employees to go beyond the bare minimum to get a raise, yet stay in the working-poor class. Dean, you are one helluva kool-aid drinker. I would love to hear you explain to us why giving the public sector pay cuts and shifting that money to the rich is a good thing. You really believe this Koch puppet is working for you??? HAHAHA... Where I come from there are words to describe people like you, we call them suckers.

Ten and a half bucks an hour? Those are "good paying jobs" Dean? "Good paying" does not equal just over minimum wage. In my opinion, for metal fabrication, those are slave wages. People make that much working at McDonalds. You cannot house and raise a family with a quality lifestyle on ten and a half bucks an hour. It's a farce, and it's a farce there are people like yourself who think that jobs like these are quality jobs. The people who take these jobs will be over worked and under paid. They will be temp jobs for kids until they get sick of it and leave. They are not careers. We need careers...
