RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
In response to the business owner who claimed we are targeting small groups of people with these taxes, such as smokers and business owners. The gentleman claimed these measures create inequality by singling out small groups.
I wholeheartedly agree, and think we need to take this mode of thinking one step further -
I agree that all Oregonians are created equal, and should not be pigeonholed into small groups based on fiscal qualifiers.
Therefore, by creating a "maximum wage", we can ensure that no Oregonian, such as the 3% of individual taxpayers affected by these measures (that are so obscenely wealthy and privileged as to be separated against their will from their average wage-earning compatriots.)
Let's remove the unfortunate inequality that rich people are constantly forced to suffer with.
MAXIMUM WAGE NOW, EQUALITY FOREVER!
