Ever in search of votes from the uninformed, the Dumbocrats from Wormtongue on down have been busy championing hikes in the minimum wage. They always eliminate jobs, as employers seek to balance out their business models to fit the new new government regulations.
Comes McDonald’s hamburger joints with their balancing act: more automation. Soon you’ll be touch-screening away to order your burger-n-fries rather than talking to a live person. Until the Dumbos start calling for more pay for software.
Meanwhile the Queen of Benghazi, insisting that her party’s minimum wage goals won’t kill jobs, accurately assessed the state of the economy when she famously added “Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs.”
Certainly not anymore, thanks to her and her political cronies.
UPDATE: The Vietnamese, ironically perhaps, favor capitalism more than Americans do: “Vietnam’s advantage is that its own parasites haven’t had a chance to start spinning much of a web yet. Ours, on the other hand, have been at it for decades.”
