Doubling the minimum wage or doubling unemployment “Equality Act” has no equality

A number of media reports, from January 1 this year, 20 states across the United States will raise the minimum wage. The adjusted hourly wage in California ranks first in all states with $14, followed by Washington State with $13.69 and Massachusetts with $13.50 in that order. New York State was raised from $11.80 to $12.50 per hour. The minimum wage in New York City is $15 per hour. …… The current federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. In early February, Biden signed another executive order requiring the federal government to raise the U.S. minimum wage to $15 per hour and to provide emergency paid leave. The left often circles the wagons with things like raising the minimum wage, so will raising the minimum wage save the jobs rate?

Adjusting the minimum wage could lead to a spike in unemployment

Let’s take a simple example. For example, the original employment, may be given to skilled college students $ 7.25 per hour, a little less skilled high school students $ 6, not much Education $ 4. But through continuous practice and learning, the latter two can also rise to $ 7.25 after a period of Time, but the government intervened, so that everyone’s minimum wage to meet the standard. So for companies naturally will not hire the latter two, so it will lead to the lack of education and skills in a large number of people unemployed. And not hiring the latter two will also increase the workload of those who are hired as college students. Therefore, many believe that the Raise the Wage Act of 2021 will make it impossible for companies to afford a higher base wage, which could lead to business closures and a spike in unemployment.

In fact, according to recent studies, it was found that a federal increase in the national minimum wage to $15 per hour would result in the loss of 2 million jobs. Of these, the Food service, arts, entertainment and hospitality industries would account for half of the projected job losses. So the government may seem to be doing a good job, but it may not always achieve good results. It is up to both parties to mediate between the two sides of the employment relationship, and blindly taking sides without doing a comprehensive analysis may not have the desired effect.

The “Equality Act” is not equal

If raising the minimum wage seems to be a big-picture measure, then this resolution from the left is unbelievable. On February 26th, the House of Representatives passed the Equality Act. Let’s see how “equality” is distorted under the far-left trend.

It allows men who claim to be women to not only share the same bathroom, but also allows “men” to spend the night in women’s shelters, enter women’s locker rooms/compete with biological women contestants, etc. …… If you object, it’s “discrimination ” and will be subject to lawsuits. This is a way to force everyone to accept the idea of so-called “equality”.

This bill is “equalizing” people who are not normal thinkers. As a biological female would be scared in any of these situations, how can the “equal” rights of normal thinking people be balanced?

The application of the Equality Act under the leftist ideology is more than that. It also normalized the idea of not allowing Parents to interfere with their children’s gender reassignment and attempted to normalize the use of hormonal and surgical interventions for children with gender dysphoria through ideological “education” in schools and other public places. A pair of Ohio parents were stripped of custody of their 17-year-old daughter for objecting to her taking testosterone supplements.

Growing up, we all tried to do numerous “stupid” things, such as playing with lighters, jumping out of windows, and rolling down stairs. Adolescent decisions were made on an ad hoc basis. But luckily, our parents were able to stop us from going down the wrong path. So are all these actions by parents disrespectful to the child’s ideas, discriminatory and unequal as the leftists say? If we follow this theory, shouldn’t the thoughts of the person committing the crime or attempting suicide receive respect as well? What if preventing it is inequality is discrimination and should be sanctioned by law? If this goes on, these days are just around the corner ……
