Florida may have voted Trump. But Florida also voted in a new minimum wage. The ignorance, even in Republican states, is stunning. I guess they don’t understand — or care — that minimum wage laws simply outlaw jobs that would otherwise exist. A minimum wage law is the government telling its citizens, “You can’t hire in those kinds of jobs.” So where do the unemployed people go? To permanent, high unemployment benefits, rationalized by an ongoing and indefinite COVID crisis.
In other words: A Communist living wage. The government wants as many people dependent on IT — rather than on a job, or on themselves — as possible. And, if the election goes Biden’s way, you can be sure the government will get its wish, sooner rather than later.
