Yarmuth: let's blow up Louisville economy

At a Tuesday rally for illegally forcing Louisville businesses to raise their "minimum wage" to $10.10 an hour, Congressman John Yarmuth quoted an old left-wing blog talking point that could, if taken seriously, wipe out the unskilled workers in the city and their employers.

"If your business model requires you to pay people less than a living wage, then you shouldn't be in business," Yarmuth said.

While Yarmuth is advocating for a city-wide increase in the minimum wage and not to force employers of unskilled laborers out of Jefferson County, he should be made to explain which businesses in Louisville he wants to victimize first.
