Career Politician Advocates $15 Minimum Wage And Bailing Them Out

Joe Biden hasn’t worked an honest day since the early 70’s. He graduated from law school, did a couple years in the private sector, and then got elected a senator. That’s what he’s done, so, it’s no wonder he has no idea how business works. Donald Trump has had his ups and downs, successess and failures, but, he understands. It was an interesting debate, which I flipped back to here and there, between the football game and other stuff. This one I caught

‘That’s Not Helping’: Trump Goes After Biden For Saying That Raising The Minimum Wage Will Help Small Businesses

President Donald Trump called out former Vice President Joe Biden during Thursday night’s debate for saying that he will raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour to help small businesses.

After mentioning that many small businesses are struggling during the coronavirus pandemic, debate moderator Kristen Welker asked Biden if he thinks now is the right time to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour, a policy that he supports.

“I do,” Biden responded. “Because I think one of the things we’re going to have to do is, we’re going to have to bail them out, too. We should be bailing them out now, those small businesses. You got 1 in 6 of them going under. They’re not going to be able to make it back.”

The former Vice President mentioned how small businesses were able to take a loan from the Paycheck Protection Program, a loan program that supported more than 51 million small business jobs during the pandemic.

“They need the help,” Biden said. “The businesses, as well as the schools, need the help. But these guys will not help them. It’s not giving them any of the money.”

The video of this is at the link, and it almost makes you wonder if Joe didn’t really know what he was answering. Is he saying that all these small businesses simply need help due to all the mostly Democrat Governor lockdowns, or is he saying that they will need help like the PPP because of a $15 minimum wage? Not sure why the schools need help, as their money is pretty much guaranteed, just like most in the government. And Trump was wanting to do things along with PPP to keep them from going under, which Democrats have blocked, including getting them open.

“He said we have to help our small businesses – by raising the minimum wage?” Trump asked Biden. “That’s not helping. I think it should be a state option.”

“Alabama is different than New York,” Trump continued. “New York is different from Vermont. Every state is different. It should be a state option.”

It would actually be better as a local option. The NYC area is quite different from the upstate lake regions. Heck, $15 an hour isn’t even really livable in NYC. And it would kill so many businesses. Lots of the beach area positions would be gone.

“How are you helping your small businesses when you are forcing wages?” the president said. “What’s going to happen and what’s been proven to happen, is when you do that, these small businesses fire many of their employees.”

“Not true, by the way,” Biden answered.

Yes true, by the way. Some will figure out a way to make it work, usually by doing things like raising prices, limiting hours, reducing staff, no overtime, using lower cost ingredients, some combination. Others? They move away, don’t expand, or just close up. Lots and lots have done this in places like Seattle and LA. The suburbs of those cities get the businesses, and lots of lower wage employees have no way to get to the new facility. Then they have to try and find a new job. Dems want this nationally so everyone will share the pain.

The minimum wage would not be raised “to a level that’s going to put all these businesses out of business,” Trump said. “It should be a state option.”

“Different places are all different,” the president added. “Some places, $15 is not so bad. In other places, other states, $15 would be ruining.”

States should allow cities to raise the wage if they choose. But, Joe wouldn’t understand this, because all he’s done for almost 50 years is work in government. If Biden wins and the Dems get the Senate, they’ll destroy the economy.

    Almost 1/2 of all Americans currently earn less than $30000 per year
    Teach perhaps you have forgotten that Obama SAVED. The US economy after Bush and GOP congress crashed it
    Have you already forgotten 2008?
    The DOW fell by 50%

    Under Obama it went up 250% in 8 years

    Kinda like Rimjob.

    Bwaha! Lolgf

    Biden needs to update his playbook. In a lot of places, people are already paying $15/hour for unskilled labor.

    President Abe Lincoln, er, we mean Donald Trump lies so consistently that no one even pays attention.

    “I’ve done more for the Blacks than any president except maybe Abraham Lincoln!”

    30 sec later: “I didn’t bring up Abraham Lincoln!”

    We’re turned the corner on Covid! It’s over in Florida! It’s over in Texas! It’s over in Arizona!

    Yesterday was new record for most new cases in the US.

    Trump finally listened to his handlers and acted almost like I normal human. We’ll see the real racist, sexist, cruel and dishonest trump at his next klan rally.

      How many were false positives.

      Sounds more like Super Predator Joe.

    trumpists should be bigly encouraged! IBD this morning shows trump is on down 5 nationally, 45-50!

    78,000+ new Covid cases yesterday, a new record. And still about 1000 deaths per day. And rural hospital ICU beds are filling up.

    Wear a mask, physical distancing…

      Showed Gropin’ Joe was down 6.3 a couple of days ago.

      I guess they can’t figure out whether they’re supposed to get as close to the real number as possible or buck up the Demos. Last night was Gropin’ Joe’s worst since he quoted Neal Kinnock.

  6. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Biden should have taken a self-deprecating shot at his age by saying:

    “Mr. President, I served with Abraham Lincoln. I knew Abraham Lincoln. Abraham Lincoln was a friend of mine. Mr. President, you’re no Abe Lincoln.”

    Raising The Minimum Wage Will Help Small Businesses?

    Sounds like Joe took the wrong meds last night.

    • Kye says:

      As far as employees go minimum wages only hurt the entry level employees since fewer are hired, the ones that are are part time, and they will never get a raise unless they leave that job.

      As far as business is concerned minimum wage mostly hurts small businesses and even an economically ignorant fool like Senile Biden knows that. So does a useful idiot like Elwood tho he wouldn’t dare admit it.

      Trump 2020 Keep The Dope and the Whore out!!!

      MAKE IT STOP!!!

    Notice Jeffery doesn’t want to bring up Super Predator Joe’s performance last night.

    Can’t say I blame him.

    • drowningpuppies says:

      “Rasmussen Says Trump Just Hit the ‘Holy Grail’ of Reelection Numbers.”

      His approval is at 52%.

      In a pandemic.

      With 7.9% unemployment.

      And a media that hates him.

      Can’t say I blame it.

        Had plenty to say last night. You were hiding.

        And, of course, the bear suit is on all the time now. Contemplating the blowout muist be hard on you.

  9. formwiz says:

    OK, batkids, riddle me this one.

    Aside from backpedaling on his promise to ban fracking (tell me again who lost), Super Predator Joe is now saying, “I’m not going to shut down the economy, I’m not gonna shut down the country”, after telling ABC he’ll mandate mask wearing in all federal buildings and all interstate transportation.

    And more importantly, remember how Chlamydia was hitting the hustings in CA last weekend? Super Predator spoke in DE today.

    I thought these states were safe. I mean, home states here.

    Just wondering.
