We Need Equality in Pay!
Jesse Ventura Off The Grid - Ora TV



















Jesse Ventura, is an American politician, actor, author, veteran, and former professional wrestler who served as the 38th Governor of Minnesota from 1999 to 2003.

I believe the viewer who posted this comment hit the nail on the head...

I've heard Mr. Ventura speak on this topic more than once, so I know that he is not proposing a "one size fits all" paycheck here.  I think what he is trying to say here, and please forgive me Jesse if I get it wrong, is that every employed individual is important to their employer in so much as the task they do needs to be done.  Sure, there may be many many people capable of digging ditches, but it still needs to be done.

Since there are so many people who need work there will be many applicants.  This lets employers know that they can offer a very low wage and people will still take the job.  In this day and age when so many of our nation's jobs have been outsourced to other nations where workers can be had even more cheaply.  This tends to devalue the jobs that remain, not because they are any less important, but because we have a very large pool of unemployed to draw from.

Have you seen the signs, "WILL WORK FOR FOOD?"  Some are scams, yes, but some are not.  This shows you how desperate some people are to feed themselves and their families.  If the jobs that have been lost ever return then a minimum wage won't be necessary, but as long as our government keeps allowing big corporations to skirt around child labor, safety, and a slew of other laws meant to protect workers by shipping jobs overseas then we need some kind of protection here so laborers are assured of a living wage at the very minimum.

It shouldn't be in the united states that a person who works for a company full time still has to beg for food stamps just to make it through the month.

Now watch what the media does with Jesse's statements.
