Most of you have read how I talked to two Hispanic check-out clerks at two separate grocery stores in the last six-eight months or so, saying to them “Man, I bought NOTHING and it’s $100!” Both of them said “Ya, and if our minimum wage goes up, nobody’ll be able to afford ANYTHING.” Which stunned me, of course!
The other night at my favorite Mexican restaurant, I teased the waiter who I know fairly well because the prices went up about 20% and we both agreed that since Mike, the owner, hadn’t raised prices in 8 years, that was probably the right thing for him to do. Ernesto suddenly pipes in with “But, if our wages go up, nobody will be able to afford this restaurant.”
What IS IT WITH OUR SKEWED AND NEGATIVE PERCEPTION OF THESE FOLKS as being only for themselves and not so bright? BALONEY! THEY get simple economics better than a Columbia or Harvard or Yale or any other famous university’s student does! …and WAY better than any Democrat! I watched the Clinton/Sanders debate last night and there is no DOUBT that that aged hippie Sanders is absolutely INSANE. The ridiculous things he says, the huge spending he wants to do, ‘redoing the DoJ’? HIM? And Hillary “Free EVERYTHING!”
The Mexicans at the grocery stores and restaurant get it….and they DON’T?!!
isn’t this WILD!
