Lots of work but few qualified laborers.

American labor has been sold out. The trades are no longer taught to high schoolers. Neither do we see artisan or craftsmen on the big or little screen. Making things, the foundation of the American middle class is just not cool too far too many Americans. So what does this mean for the country? Just as the saying goes; idol hands are the devil’s workshop. Paul Rene’s work has young people excited. Our vision is to grow to finance our own woodworking training and apprenticeship program at the old George Washington Carver High School in downtown Phoenix.

$15 minimum wage; a deficit of empathy?

Wealth does not sustain a nation, so history teaches. It is steadfast adherence to natural law and higher values that keep individuals and nations aloft. Income inequality on a day-to-day basis, for millions of Americans in the richest country on earth, means the lack of food and shelter. I grew up in the church being taught the 10 Commandments – those great universal moral laws. On

Later in life, I learned about natural law, which is instinctual – not taught. Natural law, the highest of which is self-preservation is a stronger force than moral law. When one is desperate for food and among those with plenty, he or she will take from others – forced to act immorally – if required to survive. History again is full of examples. I know what it feels like to be food and shelter insecure with a wife and children. I experienced that for 16 years. Therefore at Paul Rene, we pay all of our artisans who handcraft our works of art a livable wage. $15 is not a livable wage.
