When things on the dollar menu are $1.38, who does that hurt the most? Poor people.

That’s what liberals just don’t understand. They say things that make you feel good then implement policy that is doomed for failure. “Living wage” and “Fair Wage” are the phrases I have been seeing most lately.  Here’s a radical idea, if you don’t want to make minimum wage, don’t have minimum job skills and minimum education.

More from Heritage:

Raising the minimum wage in the fast-food industry to $15 an hour would hurt consumers and workers. Without major operational changes, fast-food restaurants would have to raise prices by 38 percent while seeing their profits fall by 77 percent. This would cause many restaurants to close and many others to make extensive use of labor-saving technology—eliminating many of the entry-level jobs that inexperienced workers need to get ahead. Congress should not facilitate the SEIU’s attempt to inflate fast-food wages.
