Like This Is A Surprise

I can’t find the story online yet, so don’t have any links. I’ll come back later and put ’em in if I find them.

Just heard on Fox News that the results of a “living wage” study show, surprise surprise, that in cities with living wage laws, there are fewer jobs.

The pro-living wage spinners are suggesting that the data is flawed, in that the study counted ALL jobs, not just the jobs impacted by the living wage laws.

It’s called the marketplace. You raise the price of something, people can afford less of it. Mandate that employers pay employees more, and employers can afford fewer employees.

Duh.
