Bernie Sanders campaign announces it will cut hours to pay staffers $15 minimum wage, prompting mockery

'Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders announced this weekend he will cut staffers' hours so that they can effectively be paid a $15-an-hour minimum wage, prompting mockery from critics who say the move is more evidence that Sanders' plan to raise the national minimum wage is hypocritical and would only lead to less work and more unemployment. ...'

I just do not get it. We have seen this over the past few years where local governments mandate a $15 an hour wage in order to give people a wage that is closer to what is need to live. Then once they pass these increases we see layoffs. So how does this help the person that is just trying to make it?

And then we have those on the campaign trail that have a $15 an hour minimum wage as part of their platform, and then we find out that these same people are not practicing what they preach.

You know I would think that since renown socialist Bernie Sanders, (who also happens to be a multi-millionaire and own three homes), is so adamant in his socialist beliefs that he would would team up with AOC and Liawatha and create a competitor to Walmart, pay all their employees a minimum of 15/hr and just show us how it's done!

Default Govt economic report

The new economic report from the federal govt on raising the minimum wage notes that it will cost between 0-3.5 million new unemployed. The report stipulates that the unemployment rate will only grow by 1.3 million. However, the long term impact will increase employment because people will be earning more money and thus will spend more which will increase demand and thus increase employment. Plus many of those who lose their jobs will get jobs at the higher rate of pay which will also increase demand thus creating more jobs.

Do you have a cite for that? Sounds like an interesting read.

Would also love link to that source as what I found in Forbes (09/28/2018) says the opposite.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/adammil.../#53aae13f1e7d.

The article starts off by claiming what those in the past have said, which is what you posted.

However a newer study says that over periods of 10 years it is the opposite of what they had originally thought.

Quote:
The authors of the new study—Paul Beaudry, David Green, and Ben Sand—create a framework to account for the effect an increase in the supply of labor can have on the demand for labor in order to isolate the effect of wages on employment. They find that increases in wages have a negative effect on employment over 10-year intervals.
The study looked at the cities of Seattle, LA, and San Francisco since they have the $15 an hour rate.

What they found was that those you are trying to help, the lower and non skilled employees, are acutely hurt as there are fewer employment opportunities for them.

Quote:
These results don’t necessarily mean minimum wage increases are bad policy. They do, however, support the notion that higher minimum wages have a cost, namely fewer employment opportunities for lower-skill workers. It’s important that we recognize this cost in any discussion about minimu

Don't just read the misleading headlines. The campaign signed a contract with unionized workers that stipulated a salary equivalent to 40 hours @ $15/hour. The problem appears to be that some of them are working more than 40 hours.

You mean Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders, (who is a multi-millionaire and owns 3 homes), won't pay overtime at time-and-a-half to his unionized workers?

Georgia lawmaker who said man told her to 'go back where you came from' walks back part of claim

'A Georgia state lawmaker has walked back a significant part of her viral claim that a white man told her to "go back where you came from" during a testy argument in a supermarket checkout lane, after the man denied the encounter unfolded the way she described. ...'

Democrat circular firing squad! (<Sarcasm for those of limited IQ.)

Eric Sparkes should be running for office!
