THE WORKMAN IS WORTHY OF HIS HIRE
By newsie 9/15/04
1. Matthew 10:9-10 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, (v.10)Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat
2. Luke 10:7 And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.
3. 1 Timothy 5:18 For the scripture sayeth, Thou shall not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And the labourer is worthy of his reward.
4. Deuteronomy 25:4 Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn
5. Malachi 3:5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me saith the Lord of hosts.
6. Refer also to 1 Corinthians 9:4-15
All scripture given is King James version unless otherwise noted.
In 1992 when I worked for a local limousine company here in Pinellas county, I had the oppertunity to pick up one gentelman at the airport in Tampa, and take him to a local hotel, where I dropped him off. At 8:00 am. the next day I picked the man up and took him to a business
meeting, and several other stops along the way, one such stop, was at
his parents house in St. Petersburg. Now mind you I'm driving one man
around all day long approximately 10 hours total, in an eight passenger limousine at a rate of around $55.00 per hour, of course the bill was
put on the company expense account. Now this in itself is just a common everyday occurrance, and is in no way noteworthy, except for one stop
we made in Clearwater Fl. at the Burger King restaurant on U.S. Highway 19, where the man called the manager of the local branch of the company
that they worked for, and told her that he was ready to be picked up. Now I thought to myself that's odd, why would he want to be picked up by another company employee to ride over to the plant in that employee's sedan, when he is riding in an eight passenger limousine driven by a well experienced driver, in fact I was a little miffed over
the situation. So upon his return I asked the gentleman why he chose to ride over there with the plant's manager instead of the limousine, his
response was a little shockig to me. He said he did not want the employee's to see him riding around in a limousine, because they would want a raise in pay, saying if the company could afford to hire a limousine for a mid level manager of the company to ride around in all day, they could certainly afford to give us a raise in pay.
Then there is the story of my ex brother inlaw, we'll call him Berry.
Berry is a mechanic, who was trying to start his own business fixing cars. But then a friend of his recriuted him to be the supervisor of
the mechanics department of a local car dealership, he did not really
want this new responsibility, because his own business was doing pretty well at the time. He was satisfied with his situation. But the dealership offered him a very large salary, I think it was $50,000 per
year, so he was convinced to take the job. But it was not long before
the dealership upper management learned of Berry's good fortune, so they hired two new mechanics for Berry to train, I believe that Berry said these two, were recent immigrant's to this country. Well long story short Berry was, unbeknownst to himself at the time, training his own replacements. He was on unempolyment after that for a long time.
The same thing happened at another company here in Pinellas county, a few years back, employees had to train the mexican workers that would eventually take their jobs away from them.
Big business dirty tricks to cut labor costs will go down in our history certainly as embarrassing and sordid as the Lynchburg eugenics

The L.S.D. experimentations on military personell in the 1960's http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MKULTRA
And the Tuskegee syphillis experimentations on black men. http://www.cdc.gov/nchstp/od/tuskegee/time.htm
This country has plenty in our history to be ashamed of we certainly do not need any more.
Now, this is the attitude of all too many employers today. You say what is wrong with that? Well to start with, America used to be the place where an honest day's work got you an honest day's pay, but not in 2005 America. Subterfuge and chicanery to keep wages low rules the day now.
Secondly this violates Judaeic/Christian principals, lets take a look at the bible. Malachi 3:5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me saith the Lord of hosts. it is this, And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, I wish to focus on now. you don't need a P.H.D. to figure that one out. but let's analyze it just a bit, judgement (Strongs 4941) verdict, a sentence, formal decree, determination. I don't know about you brother, but if I had my druther's I'druther not have the Lord be a judge and a swift witness against me. Also there is Luke 10:7 And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.
Why? well I can think of at least two reasons right off the top of my head #1 Hebrews 10:31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Especially if he is mad at you, I should imagine. #2 Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but rather fear him which is able to destroy both body and soul in hell. As if these emlpoyers(we are talking big busineess here, smaller companies for the most part treat their employees better though they are certainly not exempt, at least that has been my experiences) Shenanigans were not enough, we now have the problem of outsourcing. But the president said that outsourcing was good for the country what is your problem with that. Well it is just not me that has a problem with it so does the governor of Michigan "I can say is that if you're going to compete for Michigan work, you should be here" Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, Michigan has lost 100,000 jobs to outsourcing.

Well let's see if we can figure out just why Mr.Bush did say that outsourcing is good for the country. First of all before he was a politician, he was an excutive of a major corporation, (again big business) so what do you think Mr.Bush had in mind? When he made that statement, big business America (his buddies, especially big oil) or middle class America (not his buddies) remember big business America his buddies, especially big oil, make huge campaign contributions to his relection. So where do you think his loyalties lie? I choose the former not the latter, I am sure you do too. Simply put it is unfair international trade,
and costs American workers their jobs, as a limousine driver I depend on Americans having jobs, and good paying jobs too, not just the minimum wage service sector jobs the current administration is bragging about creating the past several years. If they don't have a job they don't hire the limousine. By the way Macdonald's employees also do not hire the limousine either, even though they do have a job. They also don't buy fifty inch televisions, they pay the rent, buy some groceries, and maby buy a gallon of gas for their car, that's about it. In a couple of years we'll all be flipping hamburgers, or delivering pizza's to one another, if this alarming trend continues, and it certainly will continue with Mr. Bush's attitude. A friend of mine knows a gentleman that used to be a computer tech. that made $60,000 per year he now drives a van and makes $8.00 per hour I don't think Mr.Bush's out sourcing policies wash too well with him. Offshore outsourcing may
be popular among big American business in 2004, but then slavery was also popular in 1858. I say lets outsource our government, there is a constitutional prohibition from foreign born persons being president, but congress enjoys no such protections. And after all they are certainly complicit in this reprehensible and disgusting attack being permitted, yeah being perpetrated by congress on the American Middle class. Those that support outsourcing usually say that it creates jobs in other areas
our economy, but I say to them prove it, of course they never do. Bottom line is 12,000 to 15,000 American middle class jobs per month are being lost to places like India, and the Philippines.
The American worker makes on average $12.00 per hour, The Indian worker makes on average $2.00 per hour. I defy anyone to prove how this is good for the American middleclass. Coming soon part two, the further destruction of the American middle class from
Well see there is a God after all, the jobs that Costa Rica stole from the U.S.A. are being stolen from them by the Chi coms.

However I find it impossible to rejoice over the matter because the jobs have still left America.
And where does all of this cheap labor lead to, well just look at the riots going on in France today and you have your answer. The businesses in Paris are shut down and are not making a dime, well actually in France it is a Euro, well whatever you can bet your bottom dollar or yen the great men of the earth are crying their eyes out over lost profits that can never be recovered. This is an excellent warning to America to start treating your workers better and paying them a decent living wage otherwise the same things loom on the horizon for you here in this country, While we here do not advocate violence in anywise, we also can see the proverbial writing on the wall, not to mention the internet.

And you can also bet these things were prophesied in the Holy Writ thousands of years ago,
Revelation 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more shine at all in thee, and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the
GREAT MEN OF THE EARTH; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived
Also Revlation 6:6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, a measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barly for a penny…
Now the above scripture means this. A penny when this was written was the average daily pay for unskilled workers, so what it say’s is this, workers in the last day’s, as this is an end times prophecy will work all day and receive as their pay, only enough money to buy a couple of loaves of bread. This can play out two or three different ways, one hyperinflation as we seen in the 1970’s under the Jimmy Carter administration. Two or extremely low wages to workers, we see today with all the cheap labor being imported into the United Steates, by your congress and outsourcing American jobs to third world countries. Three or more likely, a combination of the two. So you had better learn how to live on the cheap now.
America's Educational and Job Nightmare.
