Very sharp, superb commentary from the The Young Turks as usual.
As momentum builds to raise the minimum wage, Fox News’s Stuart Varney is fighting back. He wants to ensure that the lowly plebs don’t get paid $15 an hour. Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola (ThinkTank), Jimmy Dore, and Michael Shure, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
"The $15 minimum wage is going into effect in several cities starting today, and the panel at Fox Business’ Varney & Co. today were simply horrified by it.
Speaking from Bermuda, panelist John Layfield explained that there is no minimum wage in the country and it’s an economic paradise where children work for tips...
Varney then marveled that people who work 40 hours a week and make $15 an hour will make a yearly salary of $30,000. Darlings, how ghastly!
Panelist Elizabeth MacDonald shared Varney’s disgust that people who work 40 hours a week would not be making starvation wages anymore because these jobs are “supposed to be an entry-level job, it’s not supposed to be a career.””*
