From The Thom Hartmann Show, Koch brothers-funded Reason Magazine's Vice President of Policy, Adrian Moore doesn't think too much of the people who need a shower at the end of the work day, instead of the beginning.

The conversation started out discussing California's proposal to raise the minimum wage, and devolved into this:

MOORE: But, why should every job pay enough to live on? The whole idea of a diverse economy is that there are many, many, many jobs on which you can make a living, and there are many jobs which are not intended -- they're at the bottom of the scale -- they're not jobs you're supposed to be able to live on.

HARTMANN: Every job should make enough to live on, because every human being is worth living.

MOORE: No. When you're unskilled, you should not expect to be able to make a living off of your ordinary day's labor.

If only the same could be said for overpaid, bloviating propagandists who are making their living keeping the rubes squabbling amongst themselves, while their billionaire buddies laugh all the way to the bank.
