On the Progressives' Preoccupation with the Minimum Wage and Their Always Wanting to Increase it 2
A small businessman who could stand to use some help in his stockroom, who can't afford to pay the minimum-wage but who could afford to pay a local 18 year-old high-school senior $5-6 an hour and can't BECAUSE OF THE MINIMUM WAGE - to say that that probably honest and hard-working individual is a "poor businessman" using a "bad business model" is absolutely disgusting. And the fact that we're hearing it from individuals who know absolutely NOTHING about business, too. That to me makes it even more nauseating.
