Minimum Wage, Maximum Foolishness

Then you support putting people out of work because that is demonstrably all the minimum wage has ever accomplished. Hooray for "fairness". As coercion is contrary to Christianity, I would suspect that Jesus would oppose a minimum wage hike - or any minimum wage at all.

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.
