As unemployment increases and the homeless become more desperate, instead of looking at the foolish suggestions provided by out of touch government, let’s use some common sense. Many services used to be provided, such as gas station attendance.

Middle aged well dressed women en route to a luncheon or other social gathering did not have to pump their own gasoline. Service was provided by young men who not only pumped the gas, checked your oil and coolant, washed your windshield, sometimes your rear window and took a quick look at your tires for proper inflation.

All this done with a smile. Increased employment and hope for the homeless can be obtained if we eliminate the stupid and unconstitutional minimum wage law. If two American citizens agree upon a task to be done and the price to be paid for the service, it is nobody’s business for the decisions that these free citizens make.

Many services would be immediately returned to the marketplace from which all citizens would benefit, as well as providing jobs for the unemployed and income and dignity for the homeless. Let’s get the government out of the way and off our backs.
