ISIS can wait. What we need to deal with right now is raising the minimum wage:

In the 2014 State of the Union address, President Obama called on Congress to raise the national minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10 an hour, and soon after signed an Executive Order to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 for the individuals working on new federal service contracts.

Raising the minimum wage nationwide will increase earnings for millions of workers, and boost the bottom lines of businesses across the country. While Republicans in Congress continue to block the President’s proposal, a number of state legislatures and governors, mayors and city councils, and business owners have answered the President’s call and raised wages for their residents and employees. Read a report on the progress that’s been made so far across the country.

Women especially are depending on that minimum wage hike:

Hmmm. Maybe the White House should think this through a little more:

@WhiteHouse That bag of groceries will cost 30% more and she'll still be struggling. Math.

.@WhiteHouse You know it would make that bag of groceries 30% more expensive…don't you?

@laurakfillault @instapundit @WhiteHouse Nope…she'll be out of a job.

@WhiteHouse It will increase prices every where. This will not help

@WhiteHouse Let's make millions of women unemployed by raising the minimum wage.

— Robert Dietrich (@RobertDietrich4) October 8, 2014

@WhiteHouse Let's raise the cost of goods and services everywhere ensuring more poverty and reliance on welfare by raising the minimum wage.

— Robert Dietrich (@RobertDietrich4) October 8, 2014

@WhiteHouse Let's drive more women from the labor force because that's the best way to make unemployment lower.

— Robert Dietrich (@RobertDietrich4) October 8, 2014

.@WhiteHouse You realize those groceries will have been checked out at a kiosk and not by a cashier right? Dummies. #RaiseTheWage

While the White House is chewing on that food for thought, here’s something for the rest of us to ponder:

This picture, but with a Republican in the White House. https://t.co/OPgNOqbCKn How would the Left react?

— RB (@RBPundit) October 8, 2014

@GilesMcK You forgot "Wow. Holding a grocery bag? How sexist!" 😉

— RB (@RBPundit) October 8, 2014

Bingo The Feminist Outrage Brigade would surely be all over this. But this is the Obama White House’s work, so … nothing to see here!
