The 2007 Minimum Wage Act slowed the economy, reduced jobs, and increased deficits as it increased the minimum wage by 40%.

It began worsening immediately after Democratic legislation was enacted tp hike the minimum wage 40%.

The only major change in economic policy in Mid-2007 was the minimum wage increase.

That is when unemployment got worse. Unskilled workers were impacted the most, and that cause unemployment to rise rapidly for teenagers and minorities.

These are the people who had subprime mortgages, and their foreclosures were a factor in causing the Financial Crisis in September 2008

Yes, it’s that time of year again.
