I was over at Right Wing News reading his post about how the Republican's have faced down the Democrats hypocrisy on the minimum wage by forcing them to include American Samoa. He finishes by saying:
If 40% of the work force in American Samoa does actually end up losing their jobs because of a minimum wage, that will be a terrible thing, but it will also be a concrete example of the sort of damage that liberal economy policies cause in people's lives.
I must admit that my first thought when hearing that Republicans had forced Samoa under the same roof was, "That will show them." After I thought about it a little, it occurred to me that if we're correct about the impact the minimum wage has on companies, it's virtually certain that a lot of people in Samoa will lose their jobs.
Is it really worth that to prove we're right?
