Presidential Candidates Should Tell the Truth about the Minimum Wage

In this week’s Republican Presidential debate on CNN, a couple of the candidates took a brief time-out from slinging personal attacks and responding to trivia to address some actual issues affecting our economy. One of these issues is the oft-demagogued minimum wage.

Antitrust: a Wretched Hive of Government Hypocrisy

Antitrust law is something the government takes pretty seriously. In short, these are laws designed to protect consumers from companies that would abuse their market power to the detriment of the customer.

Right to Work 2.0 Highlights Badly Needed Reforms

The phrase “Right to Work” has traditionally been used to describe a system of voluntary union membership, as contrasted with the mandatory membership practice that are still common in many states. Now, the term is getting an update as people realize that unions are only one way of keeping hard working Americans out of a job. In fact, the government has all manner of schemes to protect their favored interests, while shutting out many of the people who need work the most.

The Compassion of Competition

Those who promote strict labor regulations always couch their arguments in terms of compassion for society’s underdogs. Mandated benefits from employers are meant to help workers struggling to make ends meet. Licensing requirements on businesses are meant to protect the unwary consumer from greedy snake oil salesmen, eager to take advantage. It all makes for good TV. But like most good TV, the truth is hidden behind a thick layer of stage makeup and soft focus. The very regulations that are supposed to help the little guy actually have the opposite effect.

The NLRB's Labor Ruling Is Another Blow against Job Growth

The National Labor Relations Board has issued a decision that could have severe implications for many types of businesses across the United States. Essentially the ruling states that companies are responsible for labor practices between contractors and subcontractors. The higher-level companies will be considered “joint employers” with their independent contractors.

Right-To-Work Laws: Facts and Fallacies

In recent years, the topic of unionization and right-to-work laws has been raised as a fairly contentious issue. As state legislatures sought to recoup the costs incurred due to lost revenue following the Great Recession, de-unionization policies, at least at the public sector level, were floated as cost-cutting measures. But nearly as often, right-to-work laws at the private sector level were also explored and implemented, perhaps most infamously in the case of the state of Wisconsin under Governor Scott Walker.

Judge Brings California One Step Closer to Killing Uber

In the state of California, the popular ridesharing service Uber is under serious attack. We’ve covered how earlier this year, the California Labor Commission issued a ruling that the company’s drivers should be classified as employees, rather than the independent contractors Uber claims they are. This classification has major implications for Uber and all similar services in the future, since employees are subject to massive labor regulations from which contractors are exempt. The cost of complying with these regulations would be crippling, if not fatal, for Uber’s services in California, and the door would be closed on any businesses with a similarly innovative business model in the future.

Judge Blocks the EPA's Damaging Water Rule

A federal judge has granted a preliminary injunction against the EPA, stopping a controversial water regulation in 13 states. The states in question are suing to stop the new water rule, which would violate private property rights and substantially harm individuals and businesses alike. The injunction stops the EPA from enforcing its rule until the results of the lawsuit are decided.
