You might be more convincing if you used better grammar.

Yikes you're right. Should've said "THEIR MW." Thank goodness my argument is more convincing now and you can take the figures I showed seriously.

oujon's grammatical error did not distract me from understanding the substance and accuracy of his assertions.

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.
