Hey! That looks suspicious!

The GOP in New Hampshire recently put several of the concerns of the state on hold to do something important.  They’re trying to remove the law that forces business owners to give employees a lunch break.

This is an unneeded law,” [Republican state Representative Kyle Jones] said. “If I was to deny one of my employees a break, I would be in a very bad position with the company’s human resources representative. If you consider that this is a very easy law to follow in that everyone already does it, then why do we need it? Our constituents have already proven that they have enough common sense to do this on their own.”

Yes, just like business owners have the common sense and compassion to not pay their employees slave wages, so why the need for a minimum wage?  I can’t help but wonder if these people have ever worked a shit job in their lives for people who pinch every penny at the expense of their workers.

And if people are already abiding by the law then why put all the time and effort into repealing it?  They’re not very good liars.
