I don't share a lot of other things on the web but this guy from Denmark is so forth right and tells it like it is living under socialism and he also writes beautifully.
Maine has a publicly funded workforce training for targeted sector businesses, which is the sector of the economy served by the corporation of Maine. The University of Maine was declared to be a corporate instrumentality of the state in 1981 and today houses state manufacturing at the Advanced Manufacturing Center at the University of Maine Inc. Businesses in the UN-targeted sector , such as Andersen Design, have to pay to train our own employees, which in a job involving many different sorts of skills, means that one usually loses money on an employee while training them and so it is true that if minimum wage were raised to the rate that the socialists in this country are demanding, we would either have to radically increase the price of our product or hire only people already trained in our skills, which given the uniqueness of many parts of our process is impossible, or export production to global low wage labor markets. If the minimum wage is conflated into a "living wage" and is raised to the heights that some are advocating, then those workers currently already making a minimum wage would have to have their wages raised as well or else it would be like a communist country in which all workers get exactly the same thing and there is no relationship between the value that an employee provides to the employer and what that worker is paid. This is a system which historically does not work.
Below is another mini-timeline which is included in A Maine Citizen's Journey Through The Statutes of Transformation, which can be had by sending a contribution ( min $10.00 suggested but whatever you can afford) to email@example.com via PayPal. All the links are active in that doc. What I am presenting here is a screen shot taken from the timeline: This shot shows that Maine is headed to become another Denmark as described by Mikkel Clair Nissen
