SLEIGHT OF HAND
(Political and economic fact)
Folks clamor that minimum wage
Be raised in level again…
The unions will have proportionally
Their entire pay scale raised then.
By contract, most union pay clauses,
Increase when the minimum does…
It’s not generally reported
Perhaps due to media flaws?
The unions who work at government pay
Have this clause and often will…
Regardless of financial state of the state
Take it from the public till.
Since borrowed money is money indeed,
No matter how much interest it cost…
The public till is the fount of greed
Until the whole nation is lost!
