Multimillionaire Sean Hannity thinks that if people are guaranteed a minimum wage, they’ll just get in trouble and never aspire to anything higher.
In an Ask Sean segment with Fox’s Dagen McDowell last night, Hannity was asked about raising the minimum wage.
HANNITY: I don’t believe in a minimum wage and I’ll tell you why.
If I wasn’t working, I would have all that time. I worked all the time and that kept me away from my dopey friends and all the trouble that I was getting into in the free time that I had left.
In other words, Hannity thinks people working at low-paying jobs are losers and God only knows what they’d do if they had free time.
One percenter Hannity also apparently thinks that earning slave wages is the only thing that would propel those low-paying losers into the ranks of the decent.
HANNITY: Look, the experience that somebody gets working a job is invaluable. You learn to deal with people, a work environment. That experience will be able to be transferred to other aspects of your life. It is so important that you get along with people and learn to deal with people. I’m against the minimum wage!
…Listen, we’ve gotta aspire to something beyond the minimum wage. Developing marketable skills, an education and producing things that people want, need and desire, goods and services. That simple.
Yeah, simple. I’d love to know the last time Hannity actually talked to somebody earning minimum wage about what it’s like and how they live.
By the way, while Hannity thinks a guaranteed wage for other people is such a bad idea, he doesn’t have a problem with it for his own self. But no $15 an hour chump change is good enough for him. According to Bloomberg, Hannity’s speaking fee is $100,000, which I figure comes out to about $50,000 an hour. Not counting the private jet which is also part of the package.
See just how out of touch Hannity is, below, from the November 12 Hannity.
Then Kingston started whining when then Speaker Pelosi demanded that congressmen show up to work a grueling 3 days a week.
So…he’s against raising the minimum wage because he’s admittedly an asshole? That makes sense.
The Stop Hannity Express has words of wisdom for the suits.
Hannocchio is too old to draw young demographics. A majority of his audience are past the 25-54 demographics. He’s needs to be replaced by that new blond broad who could triple ratings in one month. He wants to leave New York. Let him go!
NOTE TO HANNITY
Does your “dopey friends” include John Gomez? Yeah, it does.
