“I do not support a livable wage,” she said. “What I support is making sure we have an economy that is robust with low taxes and less regulation so that those small businesses that would be dramatically hurt if you imposed higher minimum wages on them are able to do what they do best: grow jobs and create good-paying jobs for the people of the 6th District.”
FAT BASTARDO'S OP ED: What this crazy cunt is talking about is legalized slavery and as we know slavery was legal in Georgia from 1619 - 1865 when it was officially ended. Clearly, Karen Handel is an evil tool of the oligarchs and kleptocrats.
Georgia’s minimum wage is $5.15 per hour, but the federal minimum wage of $7.25 applies in most cases. The minimum livable wage for a single adult in the three counties that make up Georgia’s 6th District is $12.01 per hour, according to MIT’s Living Wage Calculator.
Handel repeatedly linked Ossoff to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), saying his “values are nearly 3,000 miles away in San Francisco.” Ossoff described Handel as “another career politician” and grilled her with questions related to her 2012 resignation from the nonprofit Susan G. Komen for the Cure in fallout over efforts to stop grants to Planned Parenthood.
