Making false comparisons, spreading lies and false facts to convince people that what you think is the truth, is not the virtue of a good man. Since the very act is called deception.

“It is utterly embarrassing that ‘pay people enough to live’ is a stance that’s even up for debate,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently tweeted. “Override the parliamentarian and raise the wage. McD’s workers in Denmark are paid $22/hr + 6 wks paid vacation. $15/hr is a deep compromise — a big one, considering the phase-in.”

- But there is a big problem with this comparison – Denmark also doesn’t have any laws regarding any kind of minimum wage. Thus, this imagined middle-class-pizza-delivery-guy doesn’t make much sense.
- Another problem with the given comparison – Denmark has about 6 million citizens, and their naturalization laws are much strict than ours. Just for a quick math thought, the USA naturalizes nearly 900.000 people (coming strictly to work, because of poor social conditions), and we already have about 300 million citizens. The numbers NEVER lie
- Denmark’s politics, such as the ones mentioned by the Progressive Dem’s – unimpeded international trade and low regulatory burdens on business, is another unreachable fantasy for America. Why? Let me explain through another math example – Walmart workers are getting paid somewhere between $13 and $19 per hour, which is considered an increase in their wage, while workers in Amazon, Costco are getting $15 per hour, which is also considered as an increase. And they work in the same field. While in Denmark, though there is no minimum wage, the unwritten laws, diplomacy, and arrangements agree to pay equally to all similar workers in the industry
Tradeoffs are the very base of the public policy – this is what Thomas Sowell once noted. “The increases will help some workers, no doubt. But they will also cost jobs, either by leading to less overall hiring or by forcing consumers to pay “artificially” high prices, rather than spending the difference elsewhere.”
Ocasio-Cortez’s with her tweets and theories implies that there is something artificial about a minimum wage of $7.25 per hour ,but at the same time, doubling the wage wouldn’t be artificial. That’s completely mathematically false and thus, ridiculous to state.
Mathematically, and logically speaking, zero would be the real wage, since no one will get to lose their job because the minimum wage suddenly increased by double.
