According to your logic anyone who appears in front of a camera deserves to be believed. You've just validated every piece of fox news video 333 has every posted.
Also, this is another logical fallacy called appeal to authority.
"News"? If you needed any further proof that there are trolls amongst us, you just found it.
Maybe next we'll read again that the NBPP didn't intimidate any voters, or that doubling the minimum wage won't increase unemployment?
It's not government's job to create jobs in the private (non-govt contractor) sector, nor should they dictate wages.
They can facilitate economic growth by reducing taxes and regulations. Wages go up when there is more business activity, and businesses must compete for workers' services. Of course a secure border and a more favorable business environment might help.http://www.citylab.com/work/2014/07/the-troubling-decline-of-american-business-dynamism/375353/
When you start taxing people and corps at 40-50% or more, they will either go elsewhere or produce less - especially when govt provides incentives or additional disincentives.
When Walmart bumps up its entry level hourly wage, it will make it up somehow - layoffs, decreased wages at higher levels, increased prices, perhaps even store closings, etc.
When you start paying entry level fast food workers $15-20 an hour, businesses will lay off workers, increase prices, and in many cases shut down when they're small.
You can always cite a "study" that looked at a govt contractor like Boeing or union-controlled manufacturers who start everybody out at $20-30 or more an hour and say that raising the minimum won't directly impact that particular company - at least not right away, perhaps.
But it's just common sense that such a thing will directly impact many other businesses, which anyone who actually owned or ran a business or even just had a little formal or informal business education would know.
