Top White House official blasts minimum wage as ‘terrible’ and ‘silly’. (MSNBC)
Herr TRUMP opposed the minimum wage during his 2016 campaign. What a clueless tool of the ruling classes. Minimum wage opponents would undo the Fair Labor Standards Act and return America to a pre-FDR time when the Lochner case and progeny immunized employers from regulation to protect workers. The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions is Lamar Alexander (R-TN), another minimum wage opponent. All the more reason to elect Democrats like Bill Nelson and Nancy Soderberg. As Ambassador Joseph P. Kennedy, Sr. said, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going."
