Gutfeld: Seattle’s Minimum Wage Hike Failures
Greg Gutfeld reacted to the economic hit that Seattle took after raising its minimum wage to $15 per hour.
Gutfeld said the wage hike killed 6,300 jobs in the city, and caused pain for small businesses that didn't see an equivalent hike in their revenue.
He noted the Washington Post called the outcome "bad news for liberals."
"That's their first instinct - to worry about liberals," Gutfeld remarked.
He said liberals "know math, but pretend not to," adding that if wages are doubled, a company must likely cut half its workers to even out revenue.
Gutfeld said wage hike supporters like Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) bring "long term hardship in exchange for immediate feel-good sentiment."
