Remember: New Reports Confirm $15 Minimum Wage Bill Will Cost Americans 1.3 Million Jobs

How do Democrats feel about this?

A $15 minimum wage for low-skilled workers sounds good in theory. If companies can afford it, then do it. But most businesses can’t afford it. That’s why there is such pushback.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that spiking wages will cause companies to cut back workers’ hours, stop hiring, raise prices, and potentially go out of business entirely. And yet, uninformed liberals keep fighting the fight just to hear their own voices.

House Democrats’ proposal to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour would most likely leave 1.3 million Americans jobless by 2025, according to a study released Monday by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO).

Noting a “considerable uncertainty” about the impact a $15 per hour minimum wage would have on employment, the CBO estimated that “there is about a two-thirds chance that the change in employment would lie between about zero and a reduction of 3.7 million workers” by 2025, with the median estimate being 1.3 million jobless Americans.

It could not be easier to defeat a liberal argument.

All you have to do is use their own words against them.

For example, Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is upset that she had to pay $7 for a croissant – as anyone would be.

But how is it so hard for AOC to see why she’s paying $7?

A basic lesson in economics should have Ocasio-Cortez understanding that when minimum wages rise, so do the costs of goods.

Hasn’t she ever heard of supply and demand?

Of course, raising the minimum wage also forces businesses to cut back workers’ hours and/or sttop hiring altogether, but, shhh! Alexandria doesn’t want to hear that!

And yet, AOC still calls for a $15 minimum wage.

Look:

Croissants at LaGuardia are going for SEVEN DOLLARS A PIECE ????

Yet some people think getting a whole hour of personal, dedicated human labor for $15 is too expensive??

Reactions:

AOC then fired off another tweet after being resoundingly mocked, as per usual…

GOP taking every tweet so earnestly, making my point for me. It’s not an argument against the price of a croissant – it’s about the value of human worth.

But I guess that idea is foreign to them since their policies treat people as disposable anyway ????????‍♀️

And the reaction that wins the day…

KILLSHOT!

White House Announces Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal

This could be a big boon for a number of American industries as well.

Published

on

Regardless of what you think of Joe Biden touting this latest infrastructure deal as a “win”, it sure is nice to see that our government isn’t completely and utterly broken in the 21st century. It took months of bickering and infighting, and more than a few moments of political pettiness, but it appears as though we may just have an infrastructure deal after all. President Biden announced on Thursday that the White House and a group of bipartisan senators had reached a deal on a $579 billion infrastructure plan. “It’s been a very long time since the last time our country was able to strike a major bipartisan deal on American infrastructure,” Biden said at the White House. Biden said he and congressional Democrats had to concede some on what’s known as “human infrastructure,” such as investments for childcare and spending on climate change. Democrats will instead look to pass additional spending in a separate bill through a Senate budgetary process called reconciliation, which requires only a simple majority to pass legislation. And, despite no one having seen the bill yet, Biden is confident that Congress will send it to his desk to sign in the coming days. The radical left will likely be the most disappointed in the bill, after having previously suggested a goal of a $10 trillion investment in climate change initiatives.

Miami Building Collapsed After Years of Sinking into the Earth

Scientists has determined the issue years ago.

Just north of Miami, in the nearby town of Surfside, there is a massive rescue effort underway as nearly 100 people remain unaccounted for in the wake of a residential high-rise’s collapse. That number was nearly double the early estimate, having risen dramatically on Thursday afternoon as more information became available to those leading the effort. The late-night collapse, which was captured on video by a nearby surveillance camera, appeared to be a sudden, freak accident, but new information seems to indicate that there might be more to this story. A Florida high rise that collapsed early Thursday was determined to be unstable a year ago, according to a researcher at Florida International University. The building, which was constructed in 1981, has been sinking at an alarming rate since the 1990s, according to a 2020 study conducted by Shimon Wdowinski, a professor in the Department of Earth and Environment. When Wdowinski saw the news that the Champlain Towers South condominium in Surfside had collapsed, he instantly remembered it from the study, he said. “I looked at it this morning and said, ‘Oh my god.’ We did detect that,” he said. But not everyone agreed with the assessment. Wdowinski said his research is not meant to suggest certainty about what caused the collapse. The building was sinking at a rate of about 2 millimeters a year in the 1990s, and could have slowed or accelerated in the time since, he said. In his experience, even the level of sinking observed in the 1990s typically results in impacts to buildings and their structures, Wdowinski said. He believes that very well could have been the case for the Champlain building in the 1990s, based on his findings. “It was a byproduct of analyzing the data. We saw this building had some kind of unusual…
