How about a maximum wage bill?

Wednesday February 14th Luke 6: 22-23" Count yourself blessed every time someone cuts you down or throws you out, every time someone smears or blackens your name to discredit me. What it means is that the truth is too close for comfort and that that person is uncomfortable. You can be glad when that happens—skip like a lamb, if you like!—for even though they don't like it, I do . . . and all heaven applauds. And know that you are in good company; my preachers and witnesses have always been treated like this. When the victims of this world stand up, the ones in power get a bit threatened. They often respond by escalating violence. The Gospel is a threat to power structures and the have’s in a world of have’s and have nots. The Gospel is a threat to our present world economy and to our present world power structure. For all the debate on the minimum wage you never hear any talk of imposing a maximum wage or requiring multinational corporation to pay that minimum wage to foreign workers. If you think there is a fuss over carbon emissions, imagine the stink that would be raised by a Biblical call for an international year of Jubilee?
