Game show host Pat Sajak ruffled liberal feathers today when he tweeted his personal story and theory about the minimum wage controversy.
When I had minimum wage jobs, my goal was to better myself, not to better the minimum wage.
— Pat Sajak (@patsajak) April 10, 2015
Sajak, is becoming as well known for his political quips on Twitter as he is for being the long-term host of CBS’s “Wheel of Fortune.” His tweet was likely aimed at the liberal mindset that minimum wage should be a livable wage – be damned the economic consequences.
Fiscal conservatives argue the market can’t bear livable wages for entry-level positions without sacrificing jobs and raising the cost of products and services.
Besides, an entry level job is just that – a stepping stone in the right direction. It’s not the end-game.
When Sajak tweeted the obvious, it no doubt, brought about out a raucous social media debate:
It’s OK, Sajak can take it.
@patsajak “Better” paying jobs weren’t being massively outsourced way back when you earned minimum wage, Pat.

@patsajak many people work at capacity only to earn minimum wage. They deserve more than poverty and arrogant condescension.

@moohoggle Sure, but, don’t forget, I’ve been doing it over 30 years. 🙂 — Pat Sajak (@patsajak) April 10, 2015
See, I told you he could take it.
There were plenty of Tweeters who had his back too.
Well then, sounds like Pat did it right! Didn’t have kids until he was stable. Gee? There’s a thought! @bsage23 @tsmember

@patsajak Amen to that. Flipping burgers should NEVER be a career goal after college.

Nobody’s looking down. The point is to be looking up.
