Labor Secretary Thomas Perez: The Bible demands we increase minimum wage

Can any of our readers please point out to me which books of the Bible were written by Karl Marx?

Speaking at the AFL-CIO’s “Raising Wages” summit, Obama Labor Secretary Thomas Perez claimed that the Bible and other religious text demand that we increase the minimum wage.

“This is really about biblical teachings. This is about what is taught in the Quran and what is in the Torah and what we learn about making sure we ‘do unto others.’

“Take the Bible and rip up every page that has a reference to the need to help the poor and the underserved, and the Bible turns into, like, a Newsweek magazine.

”And that’s what this is about. This is about who we are as a nation," Perez said.



  1. I think the bible he is reading is the Koran.

  2. What an idiot! How do these people get appointed to their positions. Oh, Obama appoints them. Well, that explains it. Forget it.
