Seattle Socialist Party Wants $20 Per Hour Minimum Wage, Offers $13 Per Hour

A socialist party that wants to raise the federal minimum wage to $20 per hour is currently advertising a job for an experienced web developer paying $13 per hour.

This month, the Freedom Socialist Party placed an ad on both Indeed.com and Craigslist seeking a part-time web content manager in Seattle. The job pays $13 per hour (or more, maybe, if you are really good).

In 2012, the Freedom Socialist Party’s national platform championed “full employment” — not part-time — and an increase in the minimum wage “to $20 an hour” for all employees in all jobs.

If you are interested in applying for the $13-per-hour web content manager job, it won’t be easy. For starters, you’ll need to be “familiarity with HTML/CSS” and Photoshop. The latter is a graphics editor developed by Adobe Systems, an $18 billion private company. You’ll also need “ability to self-manage and problem-solve independently.” Proficiency in Spanish and social media as well as “an interest in ongoing political events” are desirable. And absolutely no telecommuting!

The Freedom Socialist Party’s 2012 political platform was nothing if not ambitious. Among much else, it demanded a 70 percent tax rate for “the top 1 percent;” “unilateral U.S. nuclear disarmament;” “free multi-lingual public education, including ethnic studies, through college and trade school;” free abortions; bank nationalization; and the cancellation of all free-trade treaties.

I'm okay with $13 per hour for women.

(Men should get $20)

I'm not okay with $13 dollar per hour for women.

I'm only okay with $0 dollars per hour for women.

With Socialist/Communists you have pure play hippocrasy all the time.

In fact when I traveled to Hungary I noticed the double standards all around.

We would not have this problem if it weren't for the unConstitutional 13th fucking amendment!

Now that we have $15.00 minimum wage in California, I wonder how many inner city teens will get hired?
Unemployment among teens will increase.
The crime rate will increase.
The cost to jail them will increase.
Our taxes will increase.
Jerry Brown is an idiot.
