Minimum Wage, Maximum Foolishness

Again, fire your incompetent fact checker. Very, very few workers make the legal minimum and, overwhelmingly, these are secondary income earners and young people just starting out getting the skills necessary to move up the economic ladder. It is a mutually beneficial arrangement (as is all employment).

Should the federal government make life more difficult for low-skilled workers?

I hope everyone will emphatically say “NO!”

Heck, most people understandably will think you’re crazy for even asking such a preposterous question.

But some of those people will also think that it’s a good idea for politicians in Washington to make low-skilled workers less attractive to employers by raising the minimum wage.

I often ask such people whether they are more likely to buy a Big Mac if McDonald’s raises the price by 24 percent. They say they are less likely.
