THE PARTY OF DEPENDENCY: Why Do Democrats Hate Jobs So Much?

Despite the widely-understood laws of economics, and the documented history of the effects of a minimum wage, Democrats continue their “Fight for $15” as if it were a worthy objective. From their repeated actions, one could reasonably conclude their minimum-wage hikes are efforts to punish companies, from small businesses up to the largest corporations, rather than an attempt to help those at the bottom of the economic class.

It would certainly be consistent with decades of anti-business policies and rhetoric dished out by the political left.

We finish by asking a relevant question about the minimum wage that’s never posed in public: From where does government obtain the authority to force private enterprises to part with greater sums of their earnings than they otherwise would?

They took that power, and we let them.
