Minimum Wage Because … Slavery
Al Sharpton weighs in.
The “Reverend” Al Sharpton has his finger on the pulse of racism, saying of the minimum wage, “What must be weighed in any analysis, CBO and others, is that blacks suffer disproportionately from having to do work and not get the kind of wages that we need. This is a central concern in our community. It’s not just having a job; but having wages that are guaranteed to provide for our families. We had full employment in the black community during slavery. We just didn’t have wages. So we don’t want just a job, we want a job that pays, and pays so that we can take care of our families.” What he didn’t say is that it’s Democrats who still “enslave” blacks on their poverty plantations, and raising the minimum wage will only make it worse.
