So What about the Minimum Wage?

There seems to always be talk and discussion about whether or not

the Minimum Wage needs to be raised.  Some places, primarily on the

East and West Coasts have raised theirs. And rather than make things

better, it has hurt their economy.

 

Housing has become tight for lower income residents, and a significant

portion have been moving away from the city, making employers having to

pay substantial bonuses to those willing to stay.

 

John Maynard Keynes, one of the most notable economists of all times,

and who died in 1946, addressed the truth about inflation and brought

it forward to talk about minimum wages.

 

I did a short video explaining it.  Click here
