Ed Gillespie - Minimum Wage Job "where you play on a softball league...go for a beer after work"

by: lowkell

Wed Jul 09, 2014 at 11:06:11 AM EDT

Speaking in Virginia Beach, Ed Gillespie says, "A minimum wage job is where you learn to get to work on time....Its where you learn the social aspect of work, where you play on a softball league and go for a beer after work." Absolutely. Clueless. In fact, most people earning a minimum wage don't have enough time or money to be playing in softball leagues and going out for beers after work. Instead, they're too busy trying to keep a roof over their heads, food on the table, and health care coverage (again, no thanks to cold-hearted and clueless Republicans like Ed Gillespie). In short, Ed Gillespie's as out of touch as Mitt "47 percent' Romney, his former boss.
