"There was an article a couple of years ago about Henry Ford. He paid his assembly line workers a $5 per day back in 1914 (thats $118 in todays dollars, according to MeasuringWorth.com). He did this because he wanted to increase productivity and reduce turnover and if his employees could buy his cars, all the better for him."
And that was Henry Ford's decision to make, not the government's to mandate.

(No, Mr. Franklin, we could NOT keep it.)
IIRC the people who worked the line in a Fords factories worked 12 hour days, six days.
her push is tha $5 per day, to $118 per day / 8 hours per day is $14.75 per hour....eerily similar to the $15.
In those days the was no EPA, OSHA, worker’s comp or anythign else....
She’s cherry picking the facts
