Site Selection Magazine: “North Carolina ranks second, as it did the previous three years…”
An everyday North Carolinian would see those headlines and think we’re doing something right here in North Carolina.
But not Rep. Pricey Harrison and Rep. Susan Fisher.
Like 2017’s bill, House Bill 46 would let unions run North Carolina’s government. Let’s be clear about what collective bargaining for state employees means: a government-created monopoly forcing employees to pay dues to an organization that turns those dollars into lobbying efforts that only protect their own interests and keeps the government from ever being cut.
On top of creating a self-perpetuating, never-dying government union Rep. Fisher’s and Rep. Harrison’s offering to the Altar of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would raise minimum wage all but one year between now and 2024 to the Progressive Poll Tested but Not Basic Economics Tested $15 an hour.
Never mind that a $15 an hour minimum wage means closing small businesses down.
Forget that a $15 an hour minimum wage leads to pushing low skill workers out of work.
While Progressives talk out of one side of their mouth about their distaste for corporations and supporting individual workers, their Fantasy Wishlist will tear down all of the strides we’ve made as a state, destroy small businesses, and price entry-level workers out of the job market.
