What Democrats $15/Hr Minimum Wage Would Do to the Job Market

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…

    1. I have been looking but I can’t find where the athourity for setting a federal minimum wage is in the Constitution. It doesn’t seem to be there. Oh, I guess it is covered in tge phrase that anything nit specifically granted the federal government is relegated to the Separate States. Too bad SCOTUS doesn’t save us all a lot of time abd send a memo to Congress stating that fact so we don’t have to wait for a law suit to reach the court. The democrat/socialist/communist/fascist party has been violating the Constitution for so long that they just ignore it!

    2. In simple terms SUPPLY AND DEMAND! Simple economics, higher wages, higher prices on everything, so the rise in wages are taken by higher prices!

  1. If they don’t care they just want to win votes and when everything goes wrong don’t blame it on the Republicans

  2. Let me restate myself the Democrats don’t care they want votes. When it goes wrong and hurts people and ruins the economy, they will just blame us and of course the media will support them

  3. Once again the Dems display the true definition of INSANITY. Repeat the same mistakes and expect a better outcomes.

  4. $15/hour will not help those below the poverty mark. It will only raise that mark to the $15/hr level….AND everything will cost more, jobs will be lost and small businesses will collapse. But they will get tax dollars to push their left agenda and votes for awhile until people figure it out!

  5. Do you believe you will ever see 15 DOLLAR AN HOURS? Let do the plan these DEMOCRAT POLITICAN have in mind. You will have second thoughts after you understand their idea! First what do they want you to believe? But before you answer that question. Think what PELOSI SAID IN 2016! WE WANT OPEN BORDER! Now read carefully! The whole idea is to get you to believe they are working for you! But NOT! YOU catching on? They know lot of people the age of 20-30 are working in fast food place. Making minimum wages! So they push the 15 dollar an hour. HOPING YOU FALL FOR IT! REMEMBER WHAT I SAID EARLY! OPEN BORDER! Those big TECH AND corporate want CHEAPER LABOR! And you help get them ELECT AND THEY OPEN THE DOOR FOR CHEAPER LABOR FROM MEXICO. YOU ARE OUT OF A JOB! So who the FOOL? YOU ARE!

  6. A phased in minimum wage of $15 over any period is wrong…80% of “ALL” previous investigative findings support the same negative conclusions. Having said that, the move would be consistent with the inflationary agenda of the Left’s Administration…kill jobs, supplant those lost jobs with imaginary “Green New Deal” jobs, open our borders, stifle our southern border states efforts to fight the pandemic, support reimagining or defunding enforcers of law and order by NON-SUPPORT of law enforcement, stimulus checks and free healthcare for illegals…actually, we need more “Executive Orders”…and the very first one should be a mandate that “ALL” left leaners be rounded up and detained until they are inoculated with 15c.c.s. of COMMON-SENSE before being released back into their communities.

  7. Not only would it cause problem with the market it would cause more job loss and the intervention of more robotic/technical help as happened in the fast food industry when people were replaced by computer operated systems. Not to mention the larger burdens of unemployment and loss of tax revenues that would continue to run up more debt which I believe is their real intent.

  8. Are they going to double the income for those on Social Security? When people are on a fixed income and it doesn’t change but everything else goes up in price they are going to be hurting even more. That will be the great legacy of the Democratic regime.

  9. harris is doing this intentionally nobody is this stupid. They want and need Americans to be dependent on them.
    The cost for this will be staggering.
    Not only that but the unemployment claims
    will also hurt states, and other programs that’s already in the budget.

  10. Small businesses cannot afford this increase. It will put many completely out of business. Our President is just not thinking.

  11. HOW COME no one LISTENS to the REAL experts going by the FACT (like Joe Friday: “just the facts, ma’am”) being backed up by HISTORY, but instead listen to the “facts” which is based on POLITICAL POSTURING? Just look at Home Depot who have replaced MANY clerks with CHECK OUT POS (Point Of Sales – a real term in the Computing industry) machines. machines DO NOT STRIKE, call in sick, require EXPENSIVE insurance, etc. People have forgotten to be, well, PEOPLE. There IS such things as ENTRY LEVEL jobs, and you WORK your way UP. Let’s come BACK to HUMANITY! One Enlightened Patriot. Team Trump and His Allies 2020.

  12. People should demand $15 an hour for all government workers first. We will consider them a test group. If it works then the American people can decide if this is a good idea.

  13. YOU CAN ONLY EXPECT IDIOTIC LAWS FROM IDIOTIC PEOPLE. PASS TERM LIMITS AS A CONSTITUTIONAL LAW WITH ALL POLITICANS NOW IN OFFICE TERMS ENDING AT NEXT ELECTION. LIMIT HOUSE TO TWO 2 YEAR TERMS AND SENATORS TO TWO 3 YEARS TERMS. ELIMINATE CONGRESSIONAL PENSIONS, REFUND ANY CONTRIBUTIONS THAT CONGRESSIONAL MEMBERS HAVE MADE AND USE PENSION FUND BALANCE TO PAY OF PART OF NATIONAL DEBT. PUT MEMBERS OF CONGRESS ON SOCIAL SECURITY AND ELIMINATE ANY OTHER PERKS CONGRESS NOW HAS. WITH COMPUTER COMMUNICATIONS AS GOOD AS THEY ARE WHY DO WE NEED CONGRESS TO BE IN WASHINGTON? LET MEMBERS OFFICE TO BE LOCAL AND THEY MUST BE IN OFFICE A MINIMUM OF 40 HOURS PER WEEK. BET THIS WOULD SHAKE THINGS UP.

    1. I’M DUMBFOUNDED WHY THE CITIZENS IF THE U.S.A. VOTE FOR PEOPLE TO RULE OVER THE CITIZENS OF OUR U.S. THAT ARE DUMMER THAN THEY ARE?

  14. If you use the computer ordering system at your favorite fast food store you are putting people out of work. Same with all the automated checkouts. When your favorite hamburger costs $15 will you just shrug and pay???
