Frequently I read stories portraying the Republicans as the enablers of corporate America, blaming the Republicans for letting corporate America relocate jobs to right to work states or overseas.
Anyone who investigates who the Democrats received their campaign contributions from in the recent elections will notice that corporate America has been contributing heavily to both parties and those executives are not loyal to either party.
In today's political world the Republican candidates come mostly from the small business community who create 60 percent of the new jobs for our workers.
With maybe the exception of Mitt Romney, you would be hard- pressed to find any of those candidates who were executives for large corporations. The executives of the biggest corporations in our country would be taking a huge pay cut to work in public service and they would have to give up their day job.
Most of the Republican candidates, and I did say most, are people who own their own business.
People who think that voting out the Republicans is going against corporate America are wrong. Voting out the Republicans is going against small businesses and hurting the people who work for them.
How many people working for minimum wage work for corporate America? The fast food industry is not corporate America. Those are usually individually owned franchises. Even the people who start out at minimum wage at department stores don't stay at minimum wage long, unless they are incompetent, in which case they eventually quit or get fired anyway.
