Eliminating the minimum wage would create an avalanche of new demand for low skill foreign labor.

Not a good plan.

Low skill immigrant citizens vote 80% for the Democratic Party.

Low skill workers - home grown or immigrant - receive more in government benefits than they pay in taxes.

High unemployment among home grown ethnic groups - like Blacks - would not change.

Black workers are not being turned down for low wage employment.

They fail to apply, or they are fired for poor attendance or tardiness (terminating Black workers for insubordination, poor performance, or failing a random test means an INSTANT lawsuit).

Reducing their wages would make the situation even worse.

What about all the low-skill people here? I don’t know if you are talking code for “illegal” when you say “immigrant”. If it’s a real immigrant, I don’t care. If it’s illegal - I’d like to eliminate them.

I can see some problems because of all the other socialistic !$#@$!#@ that goes on. The only reason you bring up this negativity is exactly on the assumption the OTHER socialist things like free hand-outs continue.

We have built a humongous mountain of trouble with all the FDR and LBJ garbage.
