Minimum Wage Madness

They say you should not attribute to malice what can be explained by stupidity. Maybe Democrats really do mean well by pushing for an ever-higher minimum wage, which sinks ever more businesses, puts ever more people out of a job, and makes it ever harder for young people to get their foot on the first step of the career ladder — thereby creating more government-dependent poor people who will vote for Democrats. Just in case they really don’t understand the effect of minimum wage, we’ll let John Stossel explain it for them:

Meanwhile, Rashida Tlaib, unhinged maniac and member of the influential Squad, confirms the obvious — the moment they jack the minimum wage up to $15, they will jack it higher still:

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) has upped the ante in the fight for a higher minimum wage, telling attendees at a One Fair Wage event that the federal minimum wage should actually be $20 per hour, not $15 as is currently being pushed by the Democratic Party.

Tlaib justifies this lunacy on the grounds of rising prices. If only she understood that artificially inflating wages drives up more than unemployment; it also drives up inflation.

Or maybe she isn’t a moron and she does understand.

The very concept of minimum wage is tyrannical. The federal government has no right to dictate the terms of contracts between consenting adults. When Big Government coercively intrudes in economic matters, the only beneficiary is Big Government.
