As a standalone maybe... adding new taxes and a lockdown... 20 percent unemployment and people will starve. If you raise the minimum wage, production and distribution costs will rise as well.

'Experts' who don't run any businesses All it does is raise consumer prices. That is why we are paying $7 for a flipping quarter pounder, $6 for a latte and $4 for a gallon of milk. It squeezes out the small businesses and causes the big companies to pass the cost onto consumers. It is economics 101. Time to get some new “experts”.

State by State issue🤷🏼‍♂️ MAGAts: We don’t deserve a raise! The government said so! Sure it would. Ask the employees of McDonalds who lost their jobs because they demanded $15 an hour.
