If you have any friends or family members who care more about sounding like they’re sympathetic to poor people than actually helping them, then you’re bound to have heard about how raising the minimum wage to $15 is the best thing ever.
I’ve heard people say “wow, I would make so much more if I had $15 an hour!!” But what they don’t realize, is that there’s a chance that they would not make ANYTHING if they raised the minimum wage because so many people would actually LOSE their job!!
It’s one of the intended consequences of dumb liberal economic policies that’s addressed in this excellent video on minimum wage from the Heritage Foundation, a great conservative think tank:
If you know any goofball socialists who dream of raising the minimum wage, feel free to show them this video and try to introduce them to reason and logic.
Will it work? Probably not, but we have to start somewhere!!
