Why would you find this video offensive to the African Americans? The blacks in this country are suffering more than any other race because of unemployment. And, you have to consider that Obamacare is kicking in and this further illustrates that government intervention into the private sector helps no one....because so many companies cannot afford the insurance programs the government wants, so instead of allowing someone to work 40 hours a week, they have found that they can be exempt from Obamacare if their employees only work 28 hours a week. Now who does that hurt? When the price of wages go up, the business has to pass the increase to the consumer...the consumer buys less, and the business cuts jobs.

I think you should thank this guy for telling you the truth. Investigate for yourself and stop the offensive whinning when someone is telling the truth. Sometimes, you have to get over the color of our skin and get to the point that we are ALL Americans, not just whites, blacks, hispanics, or asians.

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.
