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

H/T Flag And Cross.

DemocRats are too blinded by their ideology to see or care about the cost of $15 per hour minimum wage.

The cost of lost jobs and mom and pop businesses closing and higher prices on everything.

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.

From Daily Caller:

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??

Bless your heart.

The croissants at LaGuardia are going for $7 because people continue to purchase them.

If the consumer wasn’t buying the product, then the business would lower costs.

People living in socialist countries don’t get croissants; they have to eat their pets.

The inflated price of food at the airport is caused by the extremely overpriced retail space, which in turn is managed by the city of New York. Maybe you should find way to lower taxes instead of creating more ways to grab people’s money.

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 ????????‍♀️

If this is true, why do you think human lives are only worth $15 an hour?
