Want to reduce unemployment among those on the bottom rungs? There are 8 MILLION+ working here ILLEGALLY who take the jobs of the low-skilled. Simply enforce EXISTING laws and ILLEGALS will go home. Eisenhower proved that enforcement can work with his Operation Wet_back. ILLEGAL aliens, with few exceptions, ONLY SUPPLANT the unskilled and low-skilled. But ironically, nobody would want to hire ILLEGALS when they can no longer be paid under the table. We will simply get stuck with many millions of typically ignorant poor, guvment-dependent,, and culturally disparate...it will be a DISASTER!

The U.S. President wants to up the national minimum wage to $9 per hour. How daring.

Such pushes to increase the legal minimum wage often succeed. There’s no mystery why. Most folks’ wages are not directly affected; we work for far more than that minimum. So it’s about other people. One consequence of this is that we don’t think very carefully about the logic of the regulation.

Which is why so many of us simply bow to social pressure, thinking that opposition to raising the minimum wage is “uncaring.”...
