A vision of the future...not mine

It looks like WV Republicans really want to permanently kill WV's prevailing wage laws. Talk about a sea change; once upon a time, state politicians at least pretended to believe it was a good thing for West Virginians to earn living wages and have a shot at being in the middle class. That's all gone. It's all about doing whatever they can do to cheapen the price of human labor.With any luck, maybe they'll bring back the plantation system.

They seem to be dedicated to the dark vision of George Orwell's 1984: "If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever."
