    More and more people are getting used to the government paying for their current lifestyle. Why work if you don’t need to? All the studies that say unemployment insurance does not increase unemployment are flat out wrong! On top of that, there is a big push by some Democrats to raise the minimum wage, both nationally and in some states. Raising the minimum wage sounds like more money for low wage earners, maybe in some cases. It also means less jobs for all the employers that needed those low wage employees.

    Maybe we will adopt the Spain Method. Very little work, frequent naps, and a decline in economic activity!

    Just what we need – a minimum wage hike.

      It’s a catch-22: we either raise the wage to levels that match what is necessary to live and lose jobs in the process, or have more jobs that don’t pay people enough. Either way it means one thing: the American economy is fundamentally broken and no amount of Neo-Classical or Keynesian economics will fix it.
