Wuh-Oh -- The Squad's Rashida Tlaib Calls For 20 Dollar Minimum Wage

The progressive Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) is now calling for a $20.00 minimum federal wage just days after Congress voted to raise the wage to $15.00. Tlaib is a member of "The Squad," and it appears when she is not getting dragged out of Trump rallies or hurling obscenities about impeaching the president, she is misunderstanding the economy. 


Tlaib spoke at an event on Sunday titled "Server For an Hour" which was hosted by the organization "One Fair Wage."

As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, Tlaib told the audience that she thought that minimum wage should actually be $20.00. 

"By the way, when we started it, it should have been $15. Now I think it should be $20," she said.

"It should be $20 an hour, $18 to $20 at this point," she repeated, continuing to claim that the price of food such as milk and eggs has increased.

Alfredo Ortiz, president of the Jobs Creators Network, told The Free Beacon that "It’s a shame Rep. Tlaib didn’t hear that Bernie Sanders is cutting his staff’s hours to meet their demands for a $15 minimum wage." 

As Guy reported earlier, Sen. Sanders of Vermont got a basic lesson in economics firsthand this past week after his unionized staff demanders $15.00 per hour minimum wage. The campaign could not afford this wage, but granted it anyway. The only caveat was that staffers had their hours cut so that the campaign could make ends meet. This means the employees were working less and in some cases making less money despite having a higher hourly wage.


"If she won’t listen to job creators about the unintended consequences of a higher minimum wage, maybe she’ll listen to a socialist politician,"  Ortiz said on that end. 

My question is why stop at $20.00? Why not make it $25.00? How about $30.00? Do I hear $40.00? I am being sarcastic, of course, but years ago, there was a great Geico commercial hilariously explaining why auctioneers make bad grocery store cashiers. At the rate Tlaib and her progressive congresswoman are going in calling for higher wages, perhaps a new commercial should be created explaining why auctioneers make bad congresswomen. Their economic ideas are going to ruin the economy if implemented.
