We can never get tired of Neil Cavuto schooling clueless leftists when it comes to economics. Or reality. Even as World’s Nicest Guy, Neil manages to make polite mincemeat of clueless leftists who feel entitled to all the things. Let’s watch what happens when he comes face to face with a #FightFor15 activist…
But companies are scaling back their workers, and an environment like that might push them to continue doing so, Cavuto pointed out.
“Don’t you think an environment like this might push them to do more of that? It could be so dramatic, so fast, that you won’t know what hit you,” he said.
“And a lot of your colleagues you’re fighting hard to support, and get them higher wages, could find themselves out on the unemployment line.”
Right, like when layoffs happen, stores close. Then employees get replaced by much more efficient computers. Computers which don’t have weird piercings or questionable hygiene. Computers which don’t throw shade your way for insisting you have your order…your way. These same machines essentially eliminate the little entitled middleman. Now you can just push your own button for your own order. #Innovation.
Let’s not forget that raising the minimum wage doesn’t help anybody make more money or become more successful. See above paragraph. Raising the minimum wage just makes those jobs more expensive. Math dictates that if a job is more expensive, the person occupying it must be worth it. You know what that means? Low-skilled or no-skilled workers will not get hired for a job which pays them more than they’re worth. Sorry. Reality is a bee-yotch.
Let’s see how she responds to this logic…
“Let’s just say this, Neil,” Legrand responded.
“These corporations … know for a fact that they can pay us more than what they’re paying us now. They can afford it.”
Ah, yes of course. The evil corporations acting all evil and corporationy.
Actually it’s much simpler than even evil corporations acting all greedy by wanting to keep more of their money and stuff. Here’s a translation of what these Fight for 15 jihadists are actually saying: THEY HAVE MONEY. WE WANT IT. BUT WE DON’T WANT TO WORK MORE/BETTER FOR IT. Blah-blah-blah CORPORATE GREED. Blah-blah-blah EQUALITY. Blah-blah-blah FAIRNESS.
Lastly, this woman is probably a voter. Sleep tight.
