Just make it 50 bucks an hour. Stupid liberals can’t fathom what that means anyway.
Why stop there? Make the minimum wage $1,000 an hour and we’ll all be rich! All government has to do is wave its magic wand to create wealth, right?
Of course, the real reason for the minimum wage is to help unions. First, it keeps unskilled labor out of work, and second, the union pay rate on federal construction jobs is based on the minimum wage plus.
Obama did his best to appeal to his union goon friends when he called for a higher minimum wage and universal preschool.
