Love On A Farm Boy's Wages?

Iowa's soon to be former Senator, CommieTommie Harkin, says that raising the minimum wage is a “moral and economic” issue and the proposal will stimulate the economy and create jobs.


A new study by the American Action Forum found that just 1.6 percent of American workers make at or below the federal minimum wage and argues raising the rate would do little to help the working poor.


AAF found that raising the minimum wage would fail to directly assist over 98 percent of all Americans in poverty.

Liberals who favor raising the minimum wage above the productivity of entry-level workers confuse the value of a person with the amount of money they make. But these two have little connection to each other. Every person has immense dignity. Bill Gates has no more or less intrinsic worth than a minimum-wage employee. But workers’ wages cannot exceed the value they produce, or their employers will eliminate their jobs or replace them with more skilled workers.

If life were fair, Tommie Bahama would have been working for minimum wage.

And the scientific community is united in that fact.
