Wow, I was just kinda kidding…

May 6, 2014

Regarding my previous post https://freebraining.com/2014/05/02/15hr-why-stop-there/ on the minimum wage, I find this on Breitbart this morning:

CA CONGRESSWOMAN: RAISE STATE MINIMUM WAGE TO $26 AN HOUR

One of the most liberal Representatives in Congress wants California to raise its minimum wage to $26 an hour.
Appearing on Crossfire on Friday, co-host Newt Gingrich asked Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) whether it was a good idea for the mayor of Seattle to propose a minimum wage of $15 an hour. Lee said, “good for him.”

“In California, more than likely from what I remembered, a living wage where people could live and take care of their families and move toward achieving the American dream was about $25, $26 an hour,” Lee said.

When pressed further, Lee said she would “absolutely” support it for California and claimed it would not cause more unemployment.

You just can’t make this stuff up.
