Economic Illiteracy: This week, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez "swung by" to say goodbye to a restaurant where she used to work. What she didn't say is that it is closing because the owners can't afford New York City's soon-to-be $15 minimum wage — the very job-killing policy Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow Democrats want to impose nationwide.
"The restaurant I used to work at is closing its doors," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Monday. "I swung by today to say hi one last time, and kid around with friends like old times."
She was referring to the popular Coffee Shop in Union Square, which was frequented by A-list celebrities and featured on "Sex and the City." Despite its popularity, the Coffee Shop is going out of business. Why?
Co-owner Charles Milite told the New York Post that the main reason was "the minimum wage is going up and we have a huge number of employees."
In New York City, businesses that employ more than 11 people — the Coffee Shop had more than 150 employees — saw the minimum wage jump $2 an hour to $13 this year. And they face another $2 increase starting next year. For businesses like restaurants that hire a lot of unskilled labor, that means a government-imposed 36% increase in labor costs in just two years.
Even a successful business will find it hard to absorb a cost spike of that magnitude.
As a result, Milite's 150 workers will soon see their actual wage drop to zero.
Many others will join them.
The American Action Forum calculates that minimum wage hikes in cities and states around the country this year will kill 261,000 jobs — with most of the lost jobs concentrated in California and New York.
As we noted in this space recently, San Francisco saw far more restaurants close than open after its minimum wage went to $14 last summer. It climbed to $15 this summer.
When TV host Trevor Noah asked Ocasio-Cortez whether a $15 national minimum wage would stifle economic growth, here was her answer:
"Raising the minimum wage to a living wage will expand the economy. It will create wealth in our economy. And it will increase economic activity in this country."
KEEP ON VOTING DEMOCRAT YOU LIBERAL BUNCH OF IDIOTS!!! KEEP ON REPEATING THE SAME MISTAKES OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER....
tejano = "yes yes yes, raise min wage, tax corporations. do it again. do it again"
Got it, Cletus.
But whenever it comes up on here you fret over some old grandma who’ll go out of business if she has to pay her employee another dollar
Go give that bum on the street $100 bucks so he can buy food - YOU CAN AFFORD IT!!!!! DO IT CHIMPO!!! YOU CAN AFFORD IT!!!
What else is new?
I worked for Texas Instruments and Raytheon and we needed govt contracts to keep our jobs.
Taxes pave the streets in front of your house and educate the kids in your community.
Taxes make this the greatest country in history
Why are you addicted to doctrine? You’re so full of it no one can talk to you
What an idiot. How does taxes make our country great? Kids are failing at school! Our country is great because taxes are low here, moron. In Canada, they steal 60% of your income. Europe is just as bad.
You not only don't understand the multiplier effect of a dollar, you don't understand how government purchases in the private sector help our economy.
If a company sells a product to the government does that federal money spend differently?
YOU ARE F#CKING STUPID. NO WONDER EVERYONE CALLS YOU NOBRAIN.
