Poor Uncle Moneybags

Poor Uncle Moneybags

The demise of the economy of Washington state following the minimum wage increase is not in evidence:

An ADP index that combines both factors shows the Evergreen State far outpacing any other state in growth during the fourth quarter of 2015 compared with the year-earlier period.

Washington earned an index score of 117.9 — topping the national average of 106.8 and other states such as California, 108.7; Texas, 108.8; and New York, 105.4.

“Washington is really overperforming on employment growth,” said Ahu Yildirmaz, head of research for ADP, a payroll services company.

Gosh, you mean that YUGE increase in the minimum wage didn’t kill the economy? Why, some might draw the conclusion that when workers have more money to spend, they spend it. Cannot have that!

    Pfft. Conservatives find facts amusing. Even laughable. Facts roll right off their backs.

      They feel “opinion” carries more weight than facts, especially when the opinion is that of their preferred authoritarian: war lord, owner or grifter(read priest) -anyone to whom they can abrogate the authority and responsibility to run their lives.

      But we all know this. I’m going to shut up and have another cup of coffee before I let this ruin my day.

    Republicans believe that ONE Person, the plantation owner, should reap ALL the benefits of the work of ALL the people.
    Democrats believe that the economy benefits everybody when everybody can afford to participate.
