The minimum wage causes unemployment. This is a well-known fact amongst economists.
A little known fact is that the intended goal of the minimum wage when it was first debated and enacted was specifically to keep MINORITIES unemployed. Evil men believed that non-white races were inferior, and they recognized that a minimum wage would prevent these people from getting jobs. One minimum wage supporter felt it would:
"protect the white Australian’s standard of living from the invidious competition of the colored races, particularly of the Chinese.”
An American pro-minimum wage supporter approvingly recognizes that minorities will be unemployed:
“With regard to certain sections of the population [the “unemployable”], this unemployment is not a mark of social disease, but actually of social health.”
Keeping non-whites unemployed is NOT a mark of social health!
Another social activist "made clear what should happen to those who, even after remedial training, could not earn the legal minimum: “If we are to maintain a race that is to be made of up of capable, efficient and independent individuals and family groups we must courageously cut off lines of heredity that have been proved to be undesirable by isolation or sterilization . . . .”. He believed that economic isolation through the minimum wage would achieve this.
THE MINIMUM WAGE WAS CREATED BY EVIL RACISTS TO KEEP MINORITIES POOR AND, HOPEFULLY, DEAD. WHY THEN DO SO MANY GOOD, HONEST PEOPLE STILL SUPPORT THESE HEINOUS LAWS?
ABOLISH THE MINIMUM WAGE.
PASS THIS FORWARD AND MAKE A STAND FOR JUSTICE!
