The President is supposed to sign an Executive Order mandating the raising of the minimum wage with Federal contractors. That's probably within the gray area of his powers, but it has consequences.
Contractors are paid due to contract stipulations. If the contract is a good contract, the demand for higher wages gives means for the contractor to recoup costs. If not, the contractor can only use legal channels to make the effort to be reimbursed.
The additional cost source is the sticky area. If the money is already allocated, the costs will be taken from other sources to make up the difference. That's were you'll probably see this money come from, but you'll not find out where money was cut, until the harm is done.
I'm thinking the military will bear the brunt of the differences in costs. They're the least favorite of Obama's least favorites and he doesn't care how much it affects the people that serve this country.
I don't know how those in the military, or any agency that is faced with budget shortages due to the whims of an out of control President, will react, but I'm willing to bet their wishes for the health of the President aren't good.
In Case You've Wondered
My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.
If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com
One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.
I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.
