    Warren Buffett: $15 minimum wage will hurt the working class

    The left loves to post Warren Buffett and parrot what he says as the way things should be done.
    https://fortune.com/2015/05/22/warre...-minimum-wage/

    well he just came out and made the same statement that other people have already acknowledged.
    a $15 minimum wage will hurt middle income families.

    His idea is to expand the EIC.

    How about raising the minimum wage and also investing in education?

    wait now the left quotes buffett like a hawk on everything else he says. from more taxes to everything else, but as soon as he goes yea it is pretty stupid to raise the minimum wage to 15. the left now throws a fit over it.

    or they get an education then they don't have to get paid minimum wage. that is how millions of other people even today do it.
    I made minimum wage 1 time in my life and that was after I graduated high school and I never made it again.

    I'm not the left, I've no more use for Warren Buffet than I have for David Koch.

    You set up a condition where the majority of the free education users become the new minimum wage class. Water seeks it's own level. Anyone, no matter how poor, who has the capability and the drive, can get into and through a for payment college or technical school. Yes, they'll most likely graduate with significant debt, but that is nothing new (ask any white collar professional from any generation). But they'll also graduate with the capability to service that debt AND to have a long higher paying career.

    I'm not among those who quote Buffett but are you saying that if someone agrees with a person on some things they must agree with that person on all things?

    ITT right-wingers support greater "redistribution of wealth" because it goes against different liberal goal.
