Joe Biden and the Democrats want to fundamentally transform the country.
Their trillions of dollars in spending and socialist policies have already caused inflation to skyrocket and the economy to enter into a recession.
But now Mike Rowe just sounded the alarm about how Democrats are pushing one scheme that could destroy the economy.
Joe Biden’s Presidency has been a disaster for the economy.
The trillions of dollars in socialist spending Democrats rammed through Congress led to skyrocketing inflation and record-high gas prices.
With less than 50 days until the Midterm elections, polls show the economy and inflation is the top issue facing voters.
Polls also show the majority of Americans blame Joe Biden for skyrocketing inflation.
But Joe Biden and the Democrats are not done wrecking the American economy.
If Democrats win a filibuster-proof majority in November, they’re promising to ram through a $15 an hour job-killing minimum wage hike.
Democrats previously tried to attach a $15 an hour minimum wage hike to the $2 trillion bailout bill they rammed through Congress using the reconciliation process but were stopped by the Senate Parliamentarian.
And in an interview with Fox Business, Dirty Jobs’ star Mike Rowe sounded the alarm over the Democrats’ job-killing minimum wage hike and pointed out how it hurts workers at the bottom the most.
“I want everybody who works hard and plays fair to prosper,” Rowe said.
“I want everybody to be able to support themselves,” he continued, before adding that “if you just pull the money out of midair, you’re going to create other problems.”
“There is a ladder of success that people climb,” Rowe said. “Some of those jobs that are out there for seven, eight, nine dollars an hour, in my view, they’re simply not intended to be careers,” he continued, before saying “they’re not intended to be full-time jobs – they’re rungs on a ladder.”
Rowe then pointed out how these jobs traditionally served as a way for “people to get experience in the workforce.”
If the Democrats raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour, these jobs will be wiped out.
“[Those jobs] are ways for people to get experience in the workforce doing a thing that might not necessarily pay you as much as you’d like, but nevertheless serves a real purpose,” Rowe added. “I worry that the path to a skilled trade can be compromised when you offer an artificially high wage for, I hate the expression, but an unskilled job.”
Statistics support Rowe’s argument.
A Congressional Budget Office report found increasing the minimum wage to $15 an hour would kill 1.4 million jobs.
This is more than the number of Americans a minimum wage increase to $15 per hour would lift out of poverty.
Democrats are on a mission to destroy the economy.
And Mike Rowe is standing in their way.
