Doofus Of The Day #714

Today’s award goes to the city government of Washington D.C.

“People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.”

Someone needs to carve those words onto a wall in the D.C. Council legislative chamber.

Last week, the Council approved a measure that would require Walmart and other large retailers doing business in the District to pay a “living wage” of $12.50 per hour.

But… uh oh. Hypocrisy alert.

District government pays less than $12.50 per hour.

. . .

Council members went to great lengths to criticize Walmart’s pay scale. They should have taken care of their own business first.

There’s more at the link.  (The current legal minimum wage in D.C. is apparently $8.25 per hour.)

Yeah . . . when the mainstream media begin to pick holes in your hypocrisy, maybe it’s time to try honesty instead?
