The Living Wage Act has been proposed in the WA. I see this act as somewhat socialist, but I have still not developed a definite opinion on it. Is it worth voting for?

Of course, WE recognize the desire to do good in this proposed legislation.  However, it is fundamentally flawed.
OUR concerns are:
01.  Starter Small Businesses will not be able to hire as many employees, resulting in fewer people getting any money.
02.  Youth Jobs and Entry Level Jobs would be paid the same as skilled laborers.
03.  The elimination of Youth Jobs and Entry Level Jobs.
04.  The value of the work produced and sevices rendered may not be competative with market forces.
05.  Little incentive for workers to produce or increase productivity.
06.  The elimination of some small businesses and starter businesses.
07.  No limit regarding how much government can tax to provide for new services.

Despite the fact that I'm a communist, I don't like this. I need that money, you can't have all the pay the same, it just doesn't work.

Well, citizens, it seems that you are against this resolution as a whole. I see serious problems in it, especially how it dictates how a nation must run its economic system. The WA should definitely help fight poverty and the suppression of rights, but I do not feel this is the proper way to go about it.
Therefore, I am deciding to place my 21 votes against this resolution, unless of course someone seriously changes my mind.

I did vote against the resolution.
As for having 21 votes, the WA Delegate gets one vote plus the number of endorsements he or she has. Seeing that I have 20 endorsements, I get 21 votes in the WA.

The WA Delegate is the WA nation in the region with the most endorsements. The WA Delegate of the Meritocratic Isles prior to me was Valle de Mexico. I had the second most endorsements in the region at that time, so when Valle de Mexico ceased to exist, I took his place as WA Delegate.

Yes. The WA Delegate position cannot be held by a nation that has ceased to exist.
