Raising the Minimum Wage Would Hurt Those it Seeks to Aid

It seems as if every time the economy starts thriving people on the left begin repeating the same tired old tagline. They claim the economy is only working for the elite and that low-skilled workers are being denied a “living wage.” They complain of inequalities and demand government intervention in the form of minimum wage laws. Sure enough, now that the economy is thriving under the deregulatory agenda of President Trump, people on the left are once again calling for yet another minimum wage hike.

FreedomWorks Efforts Critical to Defeating Virginia Minimum Wage Hike in State Senate

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to S.B. 1200, a bill that sought to institute a $15 minimum wage, FreedomWorks activists drove nearly 3,000 messages to Virginia state legislators urging them to oppose the bill. The bill was supported by a variety of Virginia progressive organizations and labor unions. On Sunday, the bill was defeated by a vote of 19-21 on the senate floor. Two senators who had previously voted the bill out of committee opposed the bill in the final floor vote.
