Dear Comrade Goldi,
I can tell you one way to make it more difficult for “beginning workers and poor people” to advance. If you raise the minimum wage, they’ll be likely to be hurt worst, first.
People advance economically by gaining experience and thus bringing more value to an employer, not by passing capricious laws.
According to a BLS survey done in 2011, only 5 percent of workers who make hourly wages are at or below the federal minimum wage to begin with. Of the 1.7 million people who receive minimum wage salaries, 54 percent are aged 24 or below even as 80 percent of the workforce is 25 and above. So despite accounting for only 20 percent of the workforce, we see that minimum wages are more concentrated in those “beginning workers and poor people.”
When you are younger and lack skills you make less money.
Only a liberal would have difficulty understanding this obvious fact.
