My reply to Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus’s Hillary Clinton’s leftward illusion:
Ms. Marcus – may I ask what is the basis for your contention that a $15 minimum wage is too high? Is your concern that it will drive jobs overseas. If that is the case, then isn’t the solution to impose tariffs? I can’t understand how you who probably have an income in the low to mid six-figures (and possibly much higher) believe that the folks who show you clothes at Macy’s or serve your kids at McDonald’s don’t deserve to take home $22,000 – $25,000 or so a year if they’re fortunate enough to be working full-time.
Are you that much better than they are?
