So much for Howard Dean being the "voice of the people." Another neolib I saw through years ago.
By the way, that "raising the minimum wage costs jobs" is a bunch of horseshit. If you raise the minimum wage, people have more money to spend, which means more demand, which means more jobs, and certainly more jobs are created than are those eliminated due to job loss, a myth anyway. It's the same principle that applies to any safety net programs--they, too, create jobs.
Rich people do NOT "create jobs." Job creation is purely a result of demand. Supply can only be created after there is sufficient demand for goods and services. You don't need a Ph.D. in economics from the Ivy League to know this simple truth.
The right wing has done a hell of a job persuading people the minimum wage is evil.
