Just heard that the President's daughter, Ivanka, is quoted as saying, "Most Americans don't support a minimum wage because they don't want to be 'given' something." Really? I wonder if she's ever worked a job paying only minimum wage? Lord, Almighty.....

How would she know? She never seems to converse with "most Americans".

Here is a partial quote of an interview that will air on Sunday. I saw somewhere on KP today she was called "The Plastic Princess". Appropriate. She is a right twit. She has never had a real job. How in hell would she know what real people want and need?

I would like to see her survive on the amounts the people she 'knows so well' survive on, even just for one week.
We had a Politician once who took up the challenge, with great gusto and media coverage- she lasted two days- her daughter was asthmatic- and apparently got ill- so the mother caved in- and accessed her usual bank accounts.

I would like to see Congress survive on minimum wage and pay for their own health care. Something has to give,but not 🇺🇸 us.

I did not mention the source of her quote was public radio's afternoon news broadcast. Not a fly by night operation. A comment above provides a link to her interview. And my cynicism may be showing when I say, IMO, she has had more than her share of breaks in life. If she hadn't been born a Trump she may well have found herself trying to make her mark in NYC while fending off the entitled advances of wealthy men like, say, her Father. Grabbing her you know what & kissing her because he could. And not even get minimum wage for her trouble.

I think you people misunderstand what she said, she feels most people would rather work then be given handouts. What is the problem with working for your money. I know aoc. wants to give everyone $10,000 just for doing nothing but where is that money going to be coming from except the middle class. Is that what you want. Do you notice that since minimum has gone to $15.00 there are less people working and more kiosks. I see it in my bank less tellers you see it in fast food. So instead of 20 people working you now have 2 people working. Yes they are making $15 an hour but what about the 18 people no longer working. I know everyones idea is tax the rich, but the rich will leave the country and there will be only the poor and the middle class. The country will not survive that way

She's like her father and doesn't know enough to keep her mouth shut.
