Many unemployed, didn't make minimum wage. They made far more than that. So why isn't there implementation, by the government, to ease taxes, ease
restrictions, to create an environment for economic growth?
All we get out of Washington is a long list of things we can't do.
If the economy is a vehicle, then government acts as the brakes. You can't accelerate the vehicle simply by using the brakes.
The accelerator is business, innovators, job creators.
Now we have a president telling people to reduce their profit margin even further, so that those who were making minimum wage, can make a few dollars
more while hiking the price of goods and services, thus negating any positive effects!
I stated in another thread, if raising minimum wage was so good for the economy, then business would do it on their own.
