I love Hardball. Where else can you get great material for your blog like this?
Matthews has Baghdad Jim McDermott on his show to discuss the minimum wage and the idea that it is an idea that has long outlived it’s usefulness. Not to lefties, who believe the way to create a strong middle class is to madate wage levels … and price levels. I mean without the minimum wage companies would cut their wages to the levels in … Cambodia? Oh brother.
Set aside the fact that the minimum wage in Connecticut, applies to 40,000 workers most of whom are in the restaurant business, people who get the majority of their income from tips. And set aside the fact that without the minimum wage most of these people would still earn the same pay. Set aside the fact that the minimum wage already is set at the state level in many cases and the fact that it hinders employment, this is just plain stupid.
