Government Intentions Gone Awry
Since the imposition of socialism on our nation by Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal in the 1930s, labor costs have been kept at artificially high levels, imposing an unnecessary hurdle to higher employment. Democrat/Socialist support for labor unions and minimum wage legislation was intended to help workers, but consistently has had the opposite effect. Ironically, even the New York Times agrees (up to a point).
Blame in on the ignorance inherent in the materialistic religion of socialism.
