More Liberal Nonsense on the Minimum Wageby Jacob G. Hornberger
Jul. 26, 2012
..In discussing the concept of a minimum wage, an important issue arises: How much should it be? Unfortunately, Skar doesn’t give us a definite answer. She implies that it should be raised from the current $7.25 an hour to around $11 an hour.
What? Why only $11? Does Skar hate the poor? If raising the minimum wage is a key to prosperity, why settle for $11? Why not make it $22? Wouldn’t that double the level of prosperity? How about $52 an hour? Or $102 an hour? Indeed, why not make the minimum wage equal to what the members of Congress make? Think of all the prosperity that would bring.
