The minimum wage is a particularly heartless piece of legislation. It hits young workers hard, blocking entrance to starter jobs that teach important life skills.
The photo above shows the consequence of minimum wage laws in light of huge increases being imposed on workers in liberal parts of the country.
Here’s what the Tea Party’s Facebook page had to say about it:
“Instead of 12 cashiers making 8 to 10 dollars an hour, now there are 0 cashiers making 15 dollars an hour and 12 cashiers completely on welfare. That is Democrat’s version of furthering prosperity.”
When government forces business owners to pay workers more than they’re worth, one way around the problem is to automate and eliminate human jobs.
