A Longer Shutdown Degrades the American Workforce

The largest driver of the United States’ economy is its uniquely American workforce. This group of highly driven and motivated individuals have brought the U.S. from a small, agrarian nation, to the largest and most productive economy the world has ever seen. However, this crucially important demographic of the United States has been largely neglected in the past few months.

The Hidden Costs of a Closed Economy Are Staggering - Time to Reopen America

It’s understandable that people are focused on the numbers coming out of the CDC about COVID-19 confirmed cases and deaths. The sickness and deaths are the obvious, heartbreaking tragedy, that which can be seen. But Americans are determined and resilient, which is why our economy has weathered so many tough storms.

Seattle Finds Raising the Minimum Wage Was a Mistake

For the second time this year, a city has found that there are no quick fixes to addressing poverty and raising wages. Recently, the city of Seattle funded a study on the impact its minimum wage increase was having and concluded that it was having a negative impact on the city’s economy. As is surprising to no one who has been paying attention to the effects of the minimum wage over the past few years, it has reduced employment, economic growth, and works hours.

The Mayor of Baltimore Kills Job Killing Minimum Wage Hike

On Friday, March 24, Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh vetoed a new $15 minimum wage that would have been implemented by 2022. This makes passing the measure’s future in serious doubt since an override of the mayor’s veto requires 12 out of 15 city council members to vote against and already several who voted for the measure have decided not to support an override.

Sorry, Bernie Sanders, FDR's New Deal Actually Prolonged the Great Depression

The Democratic presidential candidate, whose proposed an estimated $18 trillion in new spending over the next decade, invoked President Franklin D. Roosevelt and the New Deal in his effort to sell his message to college students.

Jobs Report Reveals More Americans Out of Work

The jobs report, released the first Friday of every month by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, is one of the most closely watched indicators of how the economy is doing. The report collects a wide variety of statistics on employment and labor utilization, in an attempt to paint an overall picture of the American labor market. Over the few months, the Obama administration has been pleased with the numbers, with the official unemployment rate ticking down consistently, albeit at a glacial pace.

Government Statistics Paint a False Picture of Recovery

Are you feeling the recovery yet? You should be, at least according to the president. In his State of the Union address, he said that the economy had “turned the page” and that “the shadow of crisis has passed.” Official government statistics put the unemployment rate at just 5.6 percent, there is no inflation, and GDP growth in the third quarter of 2014 was a booming 5 percent. Never mind that fourth quarter growth was half that, and the economy actually shrank in the first quarter - cherry picking is only bad when other people do it - just keep your eye on the shiny golden 5!

20 States Raise Minimum Wage; Pain for the Poor and Young to Follow
