President Barack Obama’s minion came to Gary to tout the raising of the minimum wage to $9. She concluded the result would be a more robust economy. If so, why not raise the minimum wage to $15? Or let’s really gas up the economy and raise it to $25. Or why not $40?
An inquiring reporter would have asked such a question to the bureaucrat. A wee bit of journalistic curiosity would have led to an opposing view of minimum wages from any number of economists. At the least I expected an opinion from a small business owner who pays these wages.
But alas, this article went to press lacking in a balance of views.
