You might have to grate your teeth on the first half hour of
this, but the second half hour is worth listening to. It is me blowing WHO Radio's Simon Conway out of the water on his stance on the minimum wage. Simon Conway is Iowa's
Rush Limbaugh. He is a social Darwinist who would eliminate the minimum wage rather than make it a living wage and tolerate high interest rates and 20% deflation rather than have the Federal Reserve
Board work to stimulate the economy as Congress will not. While you gasp about how many homeowners and debtors would go under in the deflation parameters he likes, think for just a moment what
elimination of the minimum wage would do to all off us. It would create a race to the bottom for wages across the board. People at all levels would see their wages grind down in a fashion that would
make Charles Dickens's Christmas Carol seem like a bailout for a banker.
So when I not only defend the minimum wage, but advocate an increase to $15.00 (a bit less than either Australia or Germany) he comes unglued. I hope you enjoy it!!
