…GOP economics is as bunk as everything else they do.
Despite the constant claims that paying people enough to actually live will destroy jobs, on average the states that raised the minimum wage are seeing higher than average job growth.
This could very well be due to other factors, and not because of the minimum wage, but certainly the minimum wage isn’t killing jobs.
Actually, turns out there is more evidence, and when we add that we start to see actual trends. As the Washington Post points out, raising the minimum seems to create jobs.
Naturally facts won’t change the arguments from the right. But I already wrote about that.
