‘Who Could Have Predicted This?’: Crenshaw Responds to Sanders’ Campaign Cutting Hours After Raising Wages

https://ijr.com/crenshaw-responds-t..._1cVMaCS95ESFalwkTuy3g8S4ESHSg&_hsmi=74917219


Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) mocked the “poetic justice” of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-Vt.) campaign being forced to make staffing changes after raising their minimum hourly wage.
As IJR previously reported, Sanders’ campaign has been in turmoil over wage disputes within his campaign’s workers union. The self-described democratic socialist vowed to pay his campaign staff the equivalent of a $15 minimum hourly wage. However, given the grueling hours that many campaign workers must put in, many salaried employees were working well over 40 hours per week, making their hourly wage below $15.
In response to the chaos coming from his unionized campaign, Sanders made the decision to put a cap on the number of hours an employee can work during a given week.
Crenshaw – who has been railing against House Democrats for voting to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour – called it “poetic justice” that Sanders’ campaign is having to cut hours for their staff in order to maintain the $15 minimum.
During an interview with “Fox and Friends” on Monday morning, Crenshaw outlined the irony of Sanders’ position.
Crenshaw’s comments:

“You’ve got to laugh at this a little bit. I mean, when this kind of poetic justice where this ill-conceived policy gets manifested right before your very eyes. And I wonder who could have predicted this? Well, anybody with an economics degree would have predicted this. So it doesn’t help the people you’re trying to help. In some cases, it hurts them because, remember, a lot of these people that are at minimum wage are adding to their household income. And if they’re priced out of the labor market, they can no longer add that income to their household. So a household that was not in poverty could potentially be in poverty and they studied this at the CBO [Congressional Budget Office], as well. It’s really, really bad policy overall.”
As Crenshaw noted, the nonpartisan CBO found that a $15 minimum wage could cost millions of jobs and decrease the annual family income of minimum wage earners.

If the socialists only had a basic understanding of economics and cause and effect consequences.
Heck I heard the AOC graduated with a degree in economics?
Keep these people out of decision making positions or will will be repeating the times of '29.

Good old Bernie never amounted to much in his life, never owned a profitable business, and certainly he not a good administrator or boss. And this man wants to be President of the USA? Heaven help us!
