One of the many nightmares America is facing under the Biden regime right now is the threat of a $15 federal minimum wage. Democrats are planning to ram the $15 minimum wage through in reconciliation, so it can pass in the Senate with Kamala Harris as the tie-breaking vote.
Fun fact: The federal minimum wage is racist.
The first federal minimum wage in America was passed during Reconstruction after the Civil War. Many new factory startups were moving to Southern states because cost-of-living was low and newly-freed black Americans were willing to work for much less. The first federal minimum wage in America was set in order to prevent black Americans from getting jobs, when business owners decided to keep the jobs in Northern states (since wages would be the same anyway).
Also keep in mind that the real minimum wage is always zero dollars, and especially now that automation and robots are a reality. The next time you’re at the grocery store and you see the self-checkout section, there’s the real minimum wage of zero dollars right in front of you. Just bag your own groceries and bask in the fact that the human checkers are no longer necessary, since they cost $15 an hour.
And if you thought that Joe Biden’s executive orders were killing a lot of good-paying jobs for Americans, just wait until they ram a $15 minimum wage through. The Congressional Budget Office has an estimate of how many jobs the minimum wage hike will cost. Check it out in this video…
